AWAKENING ANCIENT FUTURES
<< A TRANSFORMATIONAL FESTIVAL CELEBRATING COUNTRY, CULTURE AND COMMUNITY >>
17 March 2018
Welcome to a full day of cultural immersion, celebrating the richness and diversity of our land and it’s people as we connect, heal, evolve and learn from one another in Truth and Harmony...
GET READY TO AWAKEN, EVOLVE & UNITE
A Transformational Festival Celebrating Culture, Community and Collective Connection to Mother Earth, in Truth and Harmony... with Music - Performance - Art - Food - Storytelling - Dance - Sound Healing - Ceremony - Ritual - Yoga - Meditation - Earth-Centred Practices - Traditional Healing & so much more.
We live in busy times where the time and space to connect, create, and care for ourselves and each other seems to decrease everyday. Awakening Ancient Futures is a calling to create that space, to celebrate together, so that we can draw on our ancient wisdom for modern solutions towards a more sustainable, peace-filled future.
We invite you to come and spend the day and evening with us, with the Elders, the youth, the healers and other beautiful beings that we have gathered from across cultures to bring ancient wisdom to modern solutions.
Why join us for this gathering of hearts and minds?
To SHARE the wisdom and knowledge from different cultures
To RECEIVE insights from the past towards a more peaceful present and sustainable future
To CONNECT and celebrate the diversity of culture with Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in truth and harmony
We honour and acknowledge the land of the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people and their ancestors past and present, and all those who have contributed and are walking this path with us. We welcome you to celebrate with us as we bring forward wisdom of the past with modern practices from across cultures towards a sustainable future.
The countdown is on... We are so excited by this unique festival which is focused on gathering with our cultural community to connect, create and care for ourselves, each other and most importantly talk about sustainability and peace on our earth.
We have received so much interest and have so much to offer you, we want the day to be totally inclusive and to ensure this we are refreshing our ticket options to:
General admission $75 full day/evening
Half day $45
Children under 15 years are free and warmly welcome!
Big shout out to those who have already taken action and bought tickets! We have also reached out to you to ensure you are also able to access these prices, plus bonus and early bird specials.
Intention for community
Our intention is to build community by playing music together, walking the land with elders, planting trees, dance the earth, sitting by the lake and beading, painting or weaving, playing with horses, sharing our cultures.
On the afternoon of the gathering we will yarn together to draw on wisdom from the past and combine it with modern solutions to create a collective vision towards a more sustainable future.
Just a reminder that this is a non-for-profit event, any proceeds will support recognition of our Elders, presenters, musicians and artists and to towards a youth camp to be held at Ingelara. The Youth Camp is a collaboration between Ngunnawal elders Tina Brown and Adrian Brown, Queanbeyan youth and Ingelara Retreat. The aim of the camp is to encourage young people to re-engage with their culture and develop life skills through hands on experience in nature and with horses.
The time is now...
If you have seen, heard and felt this invitation a number of times, today is the day to take action by saying YES to Awaken Ancient Futures and purchase your tickets now.
We look forward to joining with you on 17 March so we can celebrate together and look towards a sustainable future!
“It’s about bringing back the feminine, the feminine balance of healing, of nurturing and sending that down to our own children. Women need to know where there are sitting places, healing places and thinking places. It’s about sharing the song, sharing the dance and sharing the future.”
