(a solution to a painful Thanksgiving by focusing on Truth and Healing- mending relations through music and sharing.)
There is a growing disillusionment to the holiday many of us celebrated as children in the USA called Thanksgiving.
While we may resonate deeply with being thankful for a harvest and sharing it with friends- the genocide and mistruths of the story leave an unsavory taste in our mouth and Spirits.
There is a real call for healing and community at this time to re-create and strengthen our understanding of each other as humans living with the Earth.
What better way to explore and uplift our healing than through the universal language of the Spirit- music, dance and communion with the mystery through the musical realms.
Join us Thanksgiving weekend for a community festival where healing, decolonization, diversity and music takes the center stage for our hearts longing for change and rebirth, to reclaim this holiday collectively in a way that’s resonant and true.
Join us for a solutionary thanksgiving, where truth can belong.
