Festival Success

The praise was generous and frequent – Voices of Sacred Earth Festival 2015 was a wonderful success.

The highest praise was for the unique opportunity to connect and share, and at an inspiring event that is now established as a major gathering of “friends” as much as acquaintances. And, of course, new friends!
