Sacred Harvest Festival

Bright Hawk will be at the Sacred Harvest Festival in Southern Minnesota.

Monday August 4th – Sunday August 10th

A Quote from the website

Join us in our seventeenth year for an intimate tribal experience. Each year between two and three hundred Pagans and nature worshipers and their children and elders come together for a week of joy, fellowship, and learning. Our theme, “Gratitude” reflects the realization that for a mid sized festival in southern Minnesota we have hosted an amazingly talented group of speakers, visionaries, and musicians over the years. Sacred Harvest Festival has welcomed well over a thousand unique individuals who have made our tribe flourish. In gratitude, and for the first time, we have decided to bring some of our favorite people back as guests.”

Arise Music Festival

Bright Hawk will be part of Arise Music Festival in Loveland, CO

A Quote from Arise Website:

“An independent, family-run, leave-no-trace event, the ARISE Festival takes place over three days at Sunrise Ranch, a 350-acre organic farm and retreat center, located in a stunning Colorado mountain valley just west of the town of Loveland. Recognized as more than a music festival, ARISE offers a range of activities such as workshops, enriching yoga classes, provocative documentary films and panel discussions, art installations, live painters and art gallery, performance artists and theme camps. ARISE also offers “interactive villages” including a Children’s Village, Food Truck Village, Vending Village, Healers Village, Hemp Village, Wisdom Village and a Solution’s Village, showcasing ecological and social justice solutions with practical on-site demonstrations designed to make our world a better place.

The consummate summer camping festival for conscientious music fans — ARISE is renowned for bold and progressive “global cooling” initiatives, such as a long-held commitment to planting one tree with every ticket sold, staging a pre-festival permaculture training, local sourcing, an organic farmer’s market in the campground, and a leave-no-trace ethos.”

Bright Hawk @ Cascadia Fire

A Quote from Cascadia Fire

“We are a part of an extended network of gatherings in this vibrant emerging tradition that has deep roots and many branches throughout the United States and beyond. Through CascadiaFire and the broader tribe of Cascadia Vortex we honor and celebrate the confluence of Fire and Water in creating healthy culture together.

We carry the torch of the Fire Circle home and draw from deep roots in Cascadia and various magickal traditions to gather with the explicit intent of co-creating and cultivating community and healthy culture that embody creativity and respectful relationships.”

10th Annual Forestdance – Costa Rica 2017

Bright Hawk is honored to be part of Forestdance – Costa Rica 2017

10th Annual Forestdance Costa Rica Healing and Expressive Art Ceremonial Fire Circle Gathering

March 1st-6th, 2017, at Verdenergia, Lanas de Puriscal, Costa Rica

Come join our family as we share in deep and profound celebration of our lives together on sacred land,
in the hills of Costa Rica where we are reminded of just how alive we can be together.

Our facilitators and teachers will help guide the all night fire circle on an always profound journey, clearing the way for us to access and reclaim our own core, our inspiration, and our connection to nature.

Forestdance is a ceremonial gathering, a rite of passage.

This gathering is so profound, so beautiful, that it has shaped a community. It has reignited passions for so many talented people, and has shown an alternative way to co-exist that many of us have stopped dreaming about long ago.

Due to the deep nature of this event, to cultivate a powerful space, we ask all attending to arrive on the 1st to prepare for the start of the ceremony on the 2nd. No one will be admitted after orientatation.

We are proud and grateful to celebrate our 29th Forestdance gathering, (our 10th in Costa Rica).

We highly suggest to our attendees to schedule in a day and night for integration on site on the 6th of March. We’ll be gathering and offering additional activities on the 6th and potentially on the 7th.

“…Between the Tribes’ harmonic music, the laughter of the children and dawn tea made from roots of earth and wood, I reconnect to my family, myself, my power, our power, and the song that life always wants to sing through me but I don’t always hear. At Forestdance, I can hear.” -Robin Sol

Due to the intimate nature of this experience we cap the gathering below 100 attendees.

Adventure Stories with the Handpan

 

By Hollis Taylor

If you know Bright Hawk either by the fire, in spiritual community, as a musician, or in a facility you know that she holds a special talent in bringing people together. Bright Hawk’s work with Let’s Dance has lead her to tremendous growth in a way that is beyond words and sentences on your screen. I find her tremendous talent as a storyteller best shown when she combines it with her delightful abilities with the handpan. Here is her most recent video including a performance with the “Women of the World” as well as pieces of her “Dancing Happy Hippo Storytime Adventure” that can help you understand this dynamic being of peace and light. Her delightful smile and amazing talent of the handpan combined with her shiny personality and inspirational messages take her to gatherings around the world. Festivals all over the world delight in Bright Hawk’s presence at their events as well as libraries, schools, and other family based events.
