6th annual Life.Art.Being Integrative Arts Festival
July 20-28, 2018

A week dedicated to creating beauty and practicing presence with the self, the body, each other, & Earth. Step into a rich and inspiring week of intersecting practices from the contemplative, somatic, expressive, deep ecology, and community-building branches of our collective tree.

Each day we will rethread our ecological awareness through the senses, the embodied presence, and the creative process.  Throughout the week, we’ll practice seeing through the lens of interconnection.  Explore the personal and ecological context for your creative practices and make friends with the earth-body-mind. Become witness to the Nature within and around you, and return to your own embodied expression.

The festival includes the Work that Reconnects; Shambhala Art; Integrative Arts panel discussion; Authentic Movement; Deep Play Practices; Performance Salon; Full Moon Drum Circle; so much more…
