24 Jan Visionaries Gathering 2020
The snow is melting into the streams once again. Solitude is felt in the depth of nature for deep in the forest where only the wild beasts roam.
Visionaries’ Gathering is an interactive convergence and a holistic event that aims to bring people of diverse perspectives and experiences together to reconstruct and heal our relations with the earth, each other, and ourselves. Through interactive workshops and talks, as well as ceremonies, dance, and music, Visionaries Gathering intends to co-create and build a community that advocates for the sovereignty of all interrelated entities of earth, including the waters, lands, forests, and peoples.
DATE & TIME: Saturday January 25th, 9 am to 5 pm
LOCATION: Squamish, Quest University Canada; Library building, 3rd floor
Visionaries’ Gathering takes place on the unceded territory of the Skwxwú7mesh peoples. We are grateful to have the opportunity to work and learn in this blessed territory.
TICKETS —> http://bit.ly/VG_2020
50% of revenue is going to the Squamish Valley Elders Group and to the Tiny House Warriors.
Robyn Howard of IbogaSoul Shamanic healing will be speaking at 3:30pm about her journey of Iboga healing and the significant experiences in the Western world regarding integration and community support.
As this event will happen under ceremonial container, we strongly suggest and recommend the abstinence from alcohol and marijuana or other recreational/psychoactive substances prior, during and after this event. Ceremony is a place where healing happens and where everyone becomes connected to each other in the ceremony. If you wish to fully prepare for the ceremonies that will take place, please be alcohol and recreational drug free for at least 4 days prior to the ceremony and know that it is also recommended at least 4 days afterwards. This is because the learning/lesson/messages from the ceremony do not end with ceremony but can go on for days if you remain clear and receptive.
