It began in the sixties….a dream….a passionate dream that rose up inside us, something great and magnificent…..a deep knowing that love and peace could rule our lives, that we could re-design society, shattering the evils that plague the world and spawn something new based in love. We left our parents homes, our churches, our schools and went out in search of others who shared the vision. As we hooked up the gatherings began… Love-ins, Be-ins and music concerts. Communes sprang up, micro worlds where we experimented in new ways of living together.
As our numbers grew, so did the gatherings. We camped out for days at a time, celebrating life, and meeting in circles to share ideas, to honor one another and the planet we love, to learn from one another. We cherished art, music, theater and boundless creativity.
In the four decades since those early beginnings, our seedling ideas grew into organics, sustainability, alternative energy, holistic healing – impacting every aspect of society….a whole realm of new ways of living together as humanity on earth. And through those same years, while our early gatherings began as rustic campouts in farmers fields, they grew into elaborate festivals with multiple stages, hundreds of artisans, workshops on every topic we cherish. Today our festivals are full scale immersions, experiencial forays into the world we are building, an incredibly magical, wonderful, enchanting world full of life, full of joy and laughter. People who come to our festivals never want to go home.
Let me take you there!
