Symbiocene Returns with Ereshkigal’s Abyss: Descent of Ishtar

Eventbrite: shorturl.at/imqtN
Embrace the abyss as the night unveils Ishtar´s descent through the 7 gates of the dead amidst celestial dramas and divine sacrifices.
Your Host to the Netherworld: Ereshkigal ~ Gothess @gothess Jasmine
THE STORY: Humanity’s insatiable greed and disregard for the natural world has the earth aflame in its own devastation. It´s 5000 B.C.E. and Ishtar must give up her power and privilege in order to save the world. Ereshkigal’s Abyss is an odyssey into the depths of legend, lore, and the human psyche. As the night unfolds, witness and partake in the transformative journey of Ishtar´s descent through the seven gates of the netherworld, set against the backdrop of celestial power plays and divine sacrifices.
In a similar vein, we too must relinquish our privileges, indifference, and comfort in order to alter the dire trajectory of our climate’s future. As we journey alongside Ishtar, we beseech the Under-Earth Goddess Ereshkigal for forgiveness. Can we imagine a renewed harmony between humanity and nature that even Ereshkigal would endorse? Do we possess the depth of love and vitality necessary to usher in the Symbiocene? Descend with us to the underworld, should we prevail, a fresh world will dawn!

The Symbiocene is an oasis of freakdom where the sacred manifestations of our forbidden selves are released. A portal where we evolve our hidden narratives and future conjurings.
The Symbiocene is the next era of humanity, a human-planet symbiosis. It’s a revolution in a way of being and thinking. Essential to defying a self-fulfilling narrative of catastrophe is pure, unadulterated joy, in community, with those we love, and those we will love.
This is what we fight for! These ecstatic, ridiculous moments, rifts in the suffering and online slog – together with the music binding and bringing us to new levels, our spirits bound to a collective joy, while we grow wiser and more loving day by day!
Sahara Lounge is a truly magical space and we´re honored to host a monthly portal, third Thursdays.
At the crossroads of humanity we´re there with friends, shaking our booty, on the floor, on the wall, in the vibrant manifestations of our inner creative identities, having the time of our lives.
Syrens of Symbiocene want YOU to be part of this story!
We can’t wait to see your fabulous creature self!

Sahara Lounge is an inviting East Austin live music venue & bar with a relaxed, eclectic atmosphere. Live shows most nights for every genre.
