An historic spiritual event will take place in Santa Fe, NewMexico October 17-21, 2019. For the first time ever, the yogis, yoginis, saints and sadhus of the Himalayas will make a pilgrimage outside of India. The sacred Sangre de Cristo mountain range has been selected as the site for this landmark event. The yogis call this range the Himalayas of North America, and they say that Santa Fe, which lies at the southern end of the mountains, is the place where all of these special energies are collected and concentrated.
Hipico Horse Park will serve as the venue for the Enlightened Life Festival. Guests will join yogis, shamans, wisdom teachers, spiritual leaders and medicine people from around the world in the central temple. Every day of the four-day festival, pilgrims will experience the fullness of these traditions with fire ceremonies, puja offerings, chanting, sacred dances and more. Outside the main temple, the village of enlightened life will host a wide variety of programs and performances that will uplift and inspire attendees to co-create enlightened life on earth.
Experts and leaders in sustainable permaculture will provide workshops and hands-on demos in solar power, rainwater harvesting, soil restoration, xeriscaping and more. Eco-friendly businesses will offer fun and educational presentations and the opportunity to take home effective tools for real and enduring environmental change. As a model of sustainable life, the festival offers a complete immersion in living in harmony with Mother Earth.
Musicians and performers from around the world will be featured on the main stage throughout the event. Headliners include award-winning first-nations and indigenous artists from the U.S. and Canada, along with popular contemporary musicians from Russia, Scandinavia and India who bring an exciting fusion of their traditional cultural music with modern trends and a powerful message of global change. Local and Rocky Mountain regional artists, family-friendly entertainers, tribal dancers and electrifying drumming groups round out our line-up, promising our guests an epic, musical experience that will be remembered long after the festival ends.
Healthy, delicious foods and beverages will be available in abundance from local vendors in our Sacred Gardens Food Court. Guests will enjoy a variety of plant-based foods and snacks to fuel your body and inspire your mind. Special educational programs in the food village will focus on home-grown foods and hands-on training in plant-based food preparation. With an onsite farmer’s market, attendees will take home everything they need to incorporate more earth-healing, sustainable and nourishing foods into their enlightened lives.
In the Wisdom and Practice village, spiritual leaders from many wisdom traditions will provide expert training, instruction and guidance in the methods and techniques of time-honored paths to self-awakening. A special area will be created to feature indigenous ceremonies and practices. In addition, the festival will offer a unique longevity village that includes ancient traditions for immortality alongside leading-edge, medical experts in natural, life-extension protocols. The longevity village will host a clinic where guests can receive consultations and treatments that lead to greater vitality and a long and healthy life.
All of these amazing approaches to enlightened life on earth come together in the Conscious Family Village – a community that offers alternative educators, holistic wellness experts, children’s activities, family entertainment, women’s interests, a parents’ lounge, elders’ wisdom and health and much more. Bring your family, visit a wide variety of vendors and get training from experts who have the right resources, support and tools you need to create conscious family life – an important key to the future of enlightened life on earth.
