Stand-up Comedians + Scientists = Stand Up Science

Award-winning stand-up comedian and science podcast host Shane Mauss presents Stand Up Science!

Learn and laugh as local scientists, comedians and other special guests join Shane to bring you an unforgettable 2 hour show that is equal parts ahas and hahas

Stand-up comedy and science have a lot in common. They both reveal truth, change our perceptions, and challenge the status quo. So why are they so underappreciated? Admittedly, comedy sometimes underestimates the intelligence of their audience, catering to the lowest common denominator. And science has the stigma of being overly complicated, unrelatable or boring. Until now.

Funnier and more provocative than TED Talks, while smarter than traditional stand-up comedy, Stand Up Science combines the best of both worlds. This thought-provoking night of laughs will leave you a little smarter, a little happier and send you home with plenty of fuel for your own conversations.

What to Expect:
As your host, Shane kicks the evening off with some of his best material on brainy topics, before introducing special guest speakers and performers. Guests range from Ivy League professors presenting groundbreaking academic research to local stand-up comedians delivering their most cerebral material.

Bumbershoot

Now approaching half a century, Bumbershoot is one of Seattle's largest cultural touchstones. Each year, thousands of people from across the country flock to Seattle Center to attend this acclaimed festival, which has become one of the biggest and most-loved contemporary festivals in North America, while having maintained its Northwest spirit and innovative roots. The name Bumbershoot was chosen both as a knowing nod of respect to our city’s most famous weather pattern, and a symbol of the overarching mission of this festival: to be an umbrella for all of the arts. Its seeds were planted in 1971 with Festival 71--the brainchild of then Seattle Mayor Wes Uhlman. The next year Bumbershoot was born: a multi-disciplinary arts festival showcasing the best of comedy, dance, film, literary arts, music, performing arts, theatre, visual arts and more. Spanning the Seattle Center grounds, a campus originally created for the 1962 World’s Fair, Bumbershoot has continued its legacy of celebrating innovation and the search for what’s next.

The programming at Bumbershoot strives to be a contemporary microcosm of what is current across all disciplines and genres within those art forms, giving our audience opportunities few other festivals in the world offer.

Award-winning stand-up comedian and science podcast host Shane Mauss presents Stand Up Science!

Stand-up comedy and science have a lot in common. They both reveal truth, change our perceptions, and challenge the status quo. So why are they so underappreciated? Admittedly, comedy sometimes underestimates the intelligence of their audience, catering to the lowest common denominator. And science has the stigma of being overly complicated, unrelatable or boring. Until now.

MycoMeditations Psilocybin Retreat

MycoMeditations Psilocybin Retreat

MycoMeditations (map)

Psilocybin-Assisted Therapy with MycoMeditations in Treasure Beach, Jamaica

January 18-25 Private Retreat w/ Shane Mauss
This special psilocybin retreat is joined by special guest facilitator, comedian, and experienced psychedelic explorer Shane Mauss.

Shane Mauss has spent the last half of his comedy career doing science communication through his science podcast ‘Here We Are’ and psychedelic advocacy with a psychedelic comedy tour and the new documentary ‘Psychonautics: A Comic’s Exploration of Psychedelics’.  This retreat is for those who listen to his podcast or have otherwise resonated with Shane’s perspectives through other work.  The goal is to create an opportunity to be joined by people with shared interests to explore psilocybin, have a cultural experience, and have a once-in-a-lifetime trip.

We will combine the magic of mushrooms with a scientific mindset for a therapeutic and explorative experience.

About Psilocybin

Psilocybin is one of the most powerful tools in the world for understanding ourselves, our planet and our very existence.

Psilocybin-assisted therapy is quickly becoming popularized as an exceptionally successful, cutting-edge method for the management of conditions such as treatment-resistant depression, various forms of anxiety, PTSD, and addiction. Psilocybin-assisted therapy can catalyze enormous positive and lasting changes within individuals, as well as help unlock creativity and personal insights. 

Modern research is proving what traditional societies always knew, and what we, at MycoMeditations, have been seeing for years: little mushrooms can make big changes!

We have also found that the greatest immediate change is realized through subsequent dosing incorporated into a focused yet flexible psychedelic retreat setting rather than single dose, highly controlled sessions. Our team strives to ensure that conditions are met for you to get the most out of your work with psilocybin.

Our treatment model incorporates traditional knowledge, modern research, and psilocybin-assisted therapeutic practices. This allows participants to integrate and incorporate lasting lessons and insights gained from their psilocybin experience into daily life upon returning home from their psychedelic retreat.

‘Here We Are’ With Shane Mauss

Shane has over twenty years psychedelic experience. He has recently toured the country with a psychedelic comedy show called ‘A Good Trip’.  More than just a bunch of dumb drug jokes, ‘A Good Trip’ earned Shane national attention for his ability to use humor to convey complex ideas and to explain the difficult to articulate world of psychedelics.  Additionally, his psychedelic experiences and insights have made him a noteworthy guest on podcasts like The Duncan Trussell Family Hour, Pete Holmes ‘You Made It Weird’, and WTF with Marc Maron.

This all became the inspiration for his new documentary ‘Psychonautics: A Comic’s Exploration of Psychedelics’ where audiences can follow some of his most intense experiences, while getting the added perspectives of some of the top minds in modern psychedelic research. Through the documentary, Shane met Eric Osborne, Mushroom Expert and Founder of MycoMeditations.  Shane joined one of the retreats in 2017 and was so blown away that he wanted to share these experiences with his fans.  Shane has been partnering with Mycomeditations to put together private retreats ever since.

MycoMeditations and Shane Mauss collaborative psychedelic retreats include:

  • One week in breathtaking Treasure Beach, Jamaica with Shane Mauss and other Here We Are Podcast fans

  • 3 group psilocybin-assisted therapy sessions with Shane and other facilitators

  • Group integration sessions with Shane and other Psychedelic experts

  • Comedy shows by Shane on two of the off nights

  • Several lodging options

  • Montego Bay Airport transportation services (pickup and drop-off) in Jamaica

  • Daily authentic Jamaican meals for breakfast and dinner

  • Massage sessions

  • Introduction to the historical and modern use of psilocybin mushrooms

  • Mushroom cultivation workshop

  • One ½ hour follow-up phone or zoom integration call
