Aleila festival 2015
The Aleila Festival is - sharing the template through various communities worldwide to join together in sacred space to harness local talent in arts, and energy healing communities and join together these awake and aware talents in a place of free expression and playshops to experience unity together.
- Aleila means oneness - and it is a platform for the experience and expression of this oneness - It has run as a retreat up on the Canadian sheild since 1996 at various large camps and centres before it had to be re-structured to this new form
ALEILA gathers artists, healers, free rainbow people in a circle of Love and delight with mutual sharing - we create playshops, small circles of active creating together in art making in many forms, drumming, music, contact dance improv, forest playing, sounding, singing, healing with our voices, aromatherapy, energy work, various hands on techniques where we tune ourselves to our expanding flow (love) and experience living from this state.
The day is experienced within chosen playshop gatherings, wanderings and encounters, the evenings in circle 'performance art creations, and multiple active theatre expressions and dance and music making.
Our food is organic, vegan, mostly raw with incredible smoothies and raw desserts, superfoods, wild foraging etc.
it is a gathering where our awareness of our joy is focused, moment to moment, self love, compassion, gratitude - the mechanism of the expanding now, within each of us as an individual and within comeUnity.
- love to invite you and your comeUnity to join us!
