Summer is almost in full swing and that means ARISE Music Festival is closing in. The live music is obviously the main reason to venture out, but while you wait for your favorite headliner to take the stage, here are five awesome things to keep you busy.
1. Playshop Sessions
Want to jam with some of the artists playing at ARISE? Get up-close and personal with ARISE musical artists at the Playshop Sessions. The improv setting and performance environment of the Big Sunrise Dome brings artists together to share their talents in a one-of-a-kind setting.
2. Live Music Yoga Sanctuary
ARISE went all out for those who want to maximize their mind, body and spirit alongside the live music. Nationally recognized yoga instructors like, Shiva Rea, will be leading sessions at the Yoga Sanctuary. ARISE truly wants festival-goers to let go and relax!
Networking is important in all facets of life. So why not have a chance to make new friends, meet new people, or maybe even take a crack at speed dating. ARISE offers a plethora of workshops for all age groups. Over the last few years, participants have been involved in planting a permaculture garden, Qi-Gong, and their own innovative take on speed dating. There’s something for everyone, networking, making new friends, and perhaps manifesting a long-term connection with a like-minded individual.
4. Wisdom Village
They say knowledge is power, right? Why not gain some of that knowledge while departing on your musical journey? The Wisdom Village offers a chance for participants to gather, share resources, tell amazing stories, give thanks to Creator and Creatress, and to honor our ancestors. Here we honor our shared humanity and the differences that allow participants to co-create in amazing ways. Take part with others singing, sharing stories, and gathering together at the ceremonial fire to fuel the divine fire in each and every heart gathered. The ARISE family honors and welcomes each and every individual. There are also workshops set up for all age groups at The Youth Temple/7th Generation Lodge, The Men’s Wisdom Lodge, The Women’s Red Tent, and a Community Gathering Space which hosts a Tea Temple.
5. Big Sunrise Dome
ARISE is bringing in a huge, air-conditioned, domed theater for participants to talk and take part with World Thought Leaders on environmental and social justice advocacy. This dome will be the spot to be when wanting to take a break from the daytime heat and gain some knowledge.
