Get involved this year if you get the chance. Once you do, it's so hard to drag yourself away. You may be tired.. but you won't regret it in the morning! He's just released a new album. 13 track album

This new site is just a few miles away from our old site at St Giles House.

Pricing This year to help create a more intimate space we are opening sales to full festival tickets only. We may release a small amount of day tickets closer to the event, but having reached capacity on the previous 2 years we give value to immersing yourself. We have noticed that it can take people a day or two to settle in and slow down and as we value so much what's on offer, we feel this is the best approach. Woodland Dance Space Needless to say the design juices are flowing again for a stunning outside movement space. Gaunts House has some hidden gems and they have given us free reign to create there. Big thanks to Rufus and all the Gaunts team. General Info Food This year we have outsourced our catering and have an exciting and full range of vegan, vegetarian, and raw foods. Gaunts House will also be offering some special evening banquets. Sauna In the Healers Field we will open up a sauna space, with changing areas, showers and fire pit. Showers & Loos As festival sanitation ranks high on the list we now boast a toilet and shower block as well as well as conveniently placed compost loos.

We welcome back Katinka into the Workshop Space... We have some beautiful offerings this year in our 'Ball Room' Sharing this space will be Jewels, Nashir, Katinka, Red Tent, Sam, will a full series of offerings... Please see below Katinka's offerings 2 hours: women only Women’s Sacred Space workshop Soft Power-Full Desire workshop in which we will connect to the wisdom of our womb space and the fire of our blood, to celebrate our aliveness and drop what ever may stop us being the fullness of life manifesting in and through us. We will explore the sacred archetype of the Priestess, she who serves Goddess and walks the beauty way of love. Sharing the supportive space of healthy sisterhood, we will remember our beautiful soft power and the great magnetism of our full desire as we dance and witness our feminine authentic place of being. www.herpathoflove.com 2 hours: mixed group How to become a Dragon Rider workshop In this introduction workshop we will explore Dragon as the mythical aspect of our sacred sexual self. As such, it is the guardian of our treasure and the voice of our intuitive knowing. As a source of our empowerment, it has been distorted and so we become dragon slayers or captured by the dragon in fear and disempowerment. Dragon also holds the shadow we must face to enter into the mysteries. Our Dragon can hide in the flame of desire and in the shadow of our wounding patterns, but always guards the gold of authentic being and loving relating. This workshop will examine the initiation journey we all must make to meet and face the Dragon. How we can merge with the elemental aspect of the Dragon and become the Dragon Rider. www.herpathoflove.com 2 hours: mixed group Sensual Aliveness Tribe workshop Become conscious of the flow of Nature and your connection to the sacred life force in your body and in the land. Becoming filled with radiance and love, surrender into your ability to expand your essence and become present to the dance of life, as it wants to engage with us in every moment. Exploring conscious touch as sacred aliveness from this place of reverence, fullness and honouring connection, can be deeply healing and opens the heart to the YES of aliveness so we may meet as empowered people and forgive karmic patterns we may carry. Come and meet as Tribe of empowered, heart-centered, alive beings! www.herpathoflove.com Biog Katinka Soetens is a Ceremonialist of the Goddess and co-organiser of The Goddess Conference, Priestess of Avalon and a Sacred Sexual Priestess of Rhiannon.

A Real Treat.... and over from Germany. INDIAN AIR - world jazz trio Since his first awareness of Indian music and the sitar more than 20 years ago, the Austrian musician Klaus Falschlunger has become a master of the instrument and an active representative of the Indian-Musicscene in Europe. The whole emotional spectrum of the musician´s inner world comes alive in "INDIAN AIR". He is accompanied by Clemens Rofner on doublebass, and by the percussionist Tobias Steinberger on framedrums/ric/kanjira. Growing up with jazz and rock music, he discovered in his extensive travels to Asia, the Middle East and Europe, more and more the diversity of music. Next to his love for Indian classical music, he composed and experimented with different formations. His creativity and versatility brought him together with many musicians and artists from India, Korea, USA and Europe. Artists: Klaus Falschlunger(sitar), Tobias Steinberger(percussion/framedrums), Clemens Rofner(doublebass, bassukulele) www.sitarmusic.at http://www.sitarmusic.at/English/news_engl.html

Unless the 'I' thought is looked into and removed It is not going to make that much difference whether we become great meditators Whether we live in an ashram Or whether we develop high spiritual powers . If we continue with these things whilst retaining the old identity we are missing the main point of self inquiry Which is to bring about a radical shift in identity . So rather than striving to become a better practitioner or an advanced meditator look into the nature of the practitioner, Ask, who is the meditator get to the root of the I-dentity find out if it is real find out if it exists in the way that it appears to exist . Otherwise, we may become great practitioners We may develop highly advanced spiritual powers We may even attract thousands of followers But if we are not ree of the 'I' thought We will not have removed the virus . This is the Heart of Jnana This is the beauty and directness of inquiry To find out what we are and what we are not To discover what is always true And to know ourselves to be that! PAUL HURCOMB
