Touch Mother Earth Weekend 2017
The Touch Mother Earth Weekend, part festival and part learning center, addresses the need to create an environment of sustainability, ensuring us a habitable home where we can all thrive. On June 2nd through the 4th, on the peaceful grounds of the Mount Eden Retreat, the gathering aims to bring the community together to raise awareness through live music, thought provoking and transformative workshops, lectures, learning activities for kids, sustainable and spiritual-minded vendors and delicious healthy food.
The event begins on Friday at 5:00 p.m. and runs until Sunday at 8:00 p.m. Past participants believe Touch Mother Earth events plant the “seeds for transformation, healing and sharing” while creating a “strong personal connection with Mother Earth away from the hustle and bustle of life.”
Ignite your spirit at this high-vibe gathering with music from 13 Hands aka Dalien, Sharon Silverstein and the Peace Project, Gypsy Funk Squad, the Mystical Kirtan of Mirabai Moon and many more.
Life-enhancing workshops include: Herbalism, Tinctures and Foraging with Dan de Lion of Return to Nature, Off-the-Grid Living from Antinanco Earth Arts School, yoga with Stacy La Mell, Tai Chi with Shaka Georges, Journey Dance with Esta Kaftan among others.
Help plant a butterfly garden while learning about the soil, earthworms, and compost. Have fun with hooping, belly dancing classes and drumming with Dave Miller and others. Benefit from reiki, massage, and other healing modalities. Shop the handpicked vendors.
Kids under 16 are free. The Early Bird Pass, which expires on May 15th, is $75 (a savings of $30) and grants access to all workshops and music for the entire weekend. There are also day or evening passes available for $25 and an All Day Pass for $40, which includes all workshops and night concerts. Cabins, shared rooms, motels and camping are available. Shared occupancy starts at $100 per person.
Whether you stay for one day or the entire weekend, leave feeling refreshed, informed and empowered during this “amazing 3-day adventure of beautiful, communal energy.”
