Voices of Sacred Earth Eco-Festival 2014


Raising Consciousness

To raise ourselves up into a global consciousness that recognises the earth as a living, intelligent organism. This is the challenge and this is our vision.

We are in a time of major global change and crisis. Only by experiencing our intimate connectedness with the earth – through playing as her wildly creative impulses, through feeling the interbeing of all animals and plants – through knowing ourselves as the earth,  may we  transform our understanding of what life is, and what is of real value.

We will not have the resources to restore the balance of ecosystems on the planet without this fundamental change in consciousness, without a shift in priorities, without this new birth.

This second sacred earth eco-festival is an opportunity to investigate, explore, and to breathe into the whole of life.

  • See what others are doing in the arena of sustainable culture
  • Touch the creative impulse within
  • Create eddies and vortices with wisdom walkers from around the world
  • Be healed by healers, reconnected by artists, musicians and crafts people
  • Dance with people who have found a way to connect beyond the ordinary and touch the earth

“Learning from nature to heal ourselves”
