Lovefest is bringing the connected festival experience from our weekends in nature into the Byron Shire for one day. Consciously connect in a meaningful, fun and healthy way. To be uplifted and nourished in an environment without intoxicants.
If you wish to camp nearby there is a campsite that is 5 minutes drive from Lovefest. Here are the details: www.mullumbimbyshowground.org.au/
Here is a video that includes footage from our last two events:
WHAT TO BRING

* This will be a sober event which enables us to create a safe space for all. This means no substances that impair cognition. This will also allow us to connect together with clarity and focused intention.
* Photography and video for promotional purposes will be taken respectfully.
* Dressing colourful (is recommended)
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land of this location and this special space. The Bundjalung people, and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We celebrate the stories, culture and traditions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders of all communities who also work and live on this land.
Lovefest is about Love for Self, Love for Community and Love for planet. We connect with ourselves and each other so we can send ripples of Love to our families, community, nation and then the entire planet,
Lovefest events have 3 pillars. Health and Wellbeing, Community Connection, and Dance.
Without any intoxicants or mind-altering substances so we are all on the same wavelength and in a safe space. We come together to connect, transform, and celebrate, whilst holding the same vision and intention to spread love into the world and take action post-event. We then start to make a difference in our lives and the lives of others. This then ripples out into the society we live in, positively impacting the community at large and eventually the country and planet.
The 8 Principles of Lovefest are:
1. INNER JOURNEY
2. EMPATHETIC COMMUNICATION
3. BEING OF SERVICE
6. BUILDING COMMUNITY
7. CONNECTION TO LAND
