If you know me, you know that creating gatherings that nourish and UNITE commUNITY is one of the main passions in my life. Some of you may even remember our first ever yoga and music event (co-created with the loving guidance of the legendary RR Shakti) Yoga Rocks Mountain Fest at Planet Bluegrass in 2009. After that it was Yoga Rocks the Park, Friday Night Yoga Club and the Denver Chant Fest (co-created with Dakini Ma).
Things keep evolving and deepening and twelve years later I’m thrilled to announce our latest commUNITY wellness gathering, AWAKE Evergreen. This is a concept that has been percolating in my heart and soul for years, and it is finally manifesting. I’ve always been hungry to combine awakening with whole body and mind wellness. A few years back the question, “as we awaken to taking care of our Selves wholly why can’t all the ancient healing modalities and practices be available to us, affordably in one easy container we can all practice in together?” This is the driver behind all the AWAKE gathering over the years.
Let’s co-create a container of love, acceptance and JOY where we can connect with each other, having fun while accessing the wellness and awakening that helps us thrive individually and as a global commUNITY! Tickets are already selling, so if you are interested, head over to the AWAKE site to secure the early bird pricing.
So what is AWAKE Evergreen?
AWAKE Evergreen is a three day wellness festival in beautiful Evergreen, Colorado. This festival will not only be one of the first times we will all be gathering as a community since Covid impacted our lives last year, but it is a way to spend three days exploring all things wellness.
AWAKE Evergreen will include a full schedule of fulfilling options. It is my mission to make this a space that brings health to mind, body, and soul. There will be physical offerings such as yoga, conscious dance, meditation, nature walks, and Qi Gong. There will be mental-health offerings such as talks on mindfulness, nutrition, and relationships. There will also be nourishment with food trucks and restaurant partners. Lastly, there will be fun shopping options with vendors offering a variety of goodies to check out.
This festival is in its first year. AWAKE is grassroots and authentic. The best part, to me, is that this festival is all about community. I want to hear from YOU about what you’d like to see at this festival. Is there a certain musician, wellness-facilitator, topic, or practice you are particularly interested in? Reply with a suggestion and we will do our best to bring it life for you. AWAKE Evergreen is my dream, but it is for our commUNITY.
