Dance and Movement Workshops

Example:
"Blindfolded Contact"
by Candice & Gabriel
A safe & gentle experience that is great for both beginners & experienced dancers alike. Wearing blindfolds allows dancers to drop the fear & self-judgment that often inhibits spontaneous movement & authentic connection to self & others. This workshop takes participants on a journey of somatic self-discovery & non-verbal consent via solo & group exercises before culminating in a freeform blindfolded jam.

Wisdom Sharing

Example:
"Five ways to become a Better Ally"
by Dereca Blackmon
One person CAN make a difference. Learn five strategies you can adopt right now to be a better ally to people facing identity-based hatred. The world is calling for healers &  seekers to come together to out-love the xenophobic messages creating fear & pain in our society.  This powerful experiential workshop goes beyond blame & shame to help build real solutions the only way that works – together.

Touch & Sensuality Workshops

Example
"Tandava Movement Massage"
by Alyssa Anaya
Tandava is a sensual blend of flowing movement and massage. Originally created by Daniel Odier, a Tantra teacher from France, Tandava nourishes body and soul. Dive deep with one person, giving and receiving Tandava massage, an intimate experience that includes skin on skin movement together with oil. Awaken your sacred kundalini essence, and get a great massage! Come solo or with a partner or friend.

Intimacy & Communication Workshops

Example: 
"Building Intimacy Through Clear Communication" 
by Wahila Wilke & John Nadler
Everyone wants & deserves to love & be loved! Increasing our communication skills increases our ability to both express & experience connection & love. In this workshop you will learn & practice tools & techniques that help individuals & couples communicate cleanly & clearly in ways that help them grow & evolve.  

Live Music & DJs

Rockin' at the Fire Theater, Ecstatic Dances, Epic Poolside Dance Parties, Sweet Fireside Sing Alongs

Inner World Workshops

Example
"Forest Bathing"
by Gregg Berman
Take a journey creating a reciprocal cycle of nourishment and connection between each other and the earth. Move through a series of mindful invitations to slow down, ground and engage our senses in ways that often lie dormant. Granting each other the permission to be our full authentic selves, we deepen our connection to the forest around us. As we share what we are noticing both internally and externally, we’ll deepen our connections to ourselves and to each other.

Testimonials

It was my first festival EVER!..and what a great one to pick to pop my festival cherry :) i really didn't know what to expect but was open to new experiences and boy was I in for the most delicious treat EVERRRRRR. I have nothing to compare it to, but I'm glad it wasn't too crowded or else i think it might have felt overwhelming. But because it was intimate enough, i felt like i could really make heart to heart, meaningful connections. I felt welcomed, included, and SO SO LOVED. Thank you :)
