  • art for spiritual healing
  • art for transformation of consciousness

Spearheaded by Joan Forest Mage of Life Force Arts Center, the festival features thirty artists presenting in various media  during  four days of performances, workshops, lectures, panel discussions, and a large visual art exhibit. Come for enrichment, enlightenment, healing, and fun!
