Lucidity 2017 Tickets On Sale 11/8
Curious about transformational festivals full of art, education, music and camping in a beautiful place like the Burning Man Festival? Always wanted to attend Burning man but couldn’t see spending a week in the Nevada Desert?
Yes? Well then! You should check into the Lucidity Festival April 7-9 at Live Oak in the hills behind Santa Barbara California. While it is NOT Burning Man by a long shot, it is still a great festival with lots of art and music and workshops, and many of the same people who participate in Burning Man attend and participate in Lucidity.
Like Burning Man, Lucidity organizers choose a theme. This year’s theme for Lucidity is “Eudaemonia” a Greek word for “human flourishing” that represents an optimistic vision for our collective future.
Accept your invitation to bring your dreams, your dancing shoes, and your ideas for co-creating Eudaimonia to Live Oak Campground April 7–9, 2017 when tickets go on sale tomorrow, Tues. Nov. 8.
Although organizers have added more early bird tickets this year, the first couple of tiers have sold out in minutes in the past. On Nov. 22, the Low Income Ticket Program applications will also be available.
Car camping passes are also always at a premium and if you don’t grab one early, you will need to leave your car in a parking lot and shuttle your gear in. While this can work for many people, if you have children (and yes children are welcome at Lucidity) or you are used to sleeping in your van like we are, you will want to get yours ASAP. Both Car Camping and RV Camping Passes are for sale NOW in limited amounts and they encourage you to carpool and/or leave your car in the General Parking Lot. A local shuttle company offers rides to Live Oak from a few locations plus there’s RickyRides, a rideshare program where you can find rides from pretty much anywhere.
Lucidity is an open-source transformational arts and music festival. That means, like Burning Man, it is co-created with participants. Lucidity is organized into seven themed villages that offer different workshops and other activities created by YOU. Here’s a blog post about last year’s Lucidity Festival. This post is about how Lucidity opens hearts and minds.
When we become lucid in our dreams, we realize ourselves as infinite potential, we let go of fear, and we are free to create that which we want to see in the world. Bring those visions, those possibilities, and that delicious conscious energy with you to Lucidity and wake up in the dream.
Eudaemonia, organizers explain, means “having a good indwelling spirit,” and “signals a communal happiness rooted in the virtues of interconnected awakened individuals.” Applications open to perform and offer workshops on November 22nd.
Need to get some Lucidity and can’t wait until April?
Check out Lucidity University! Located in Southern Oregon at Trillium, “the land is beautiful, has expansive meadows for camping, is nestled in a lush valley, has beautiful gardens, a river, a community kitchen, and a lovely geodesic dome workshop space. This place is PERFECT as a venue for healing work, for ecology and wilderness education, for movement and flow, and for a wide array of niche retreat topics.”
