Wider Horizons is being held online. Imagine an area by a beautiful lake within a gathering of gatherings. We are teaming up with Into the Wild  and ANIWA to create Wonderland: Wonderland is a new adventure for these times, an online festival, creating connection through the arts, music and sharing what inspires us, whoever we are, not limited by space and time. Wonderland is a new 3-day online festival over the Summer Solstice, We will host world class music, workshops, talks, debates, inspiring stories, films, storytelling, wild crafts, Indigenous elders and lots more, it’s going to be brilliant. We will have Zooms where you can interact with the contributors, musicians and fellow participants connecting with old friends and new.  We will also have concerts on FB Live.  You can join our FB Group to access the event or join the zooms. We will post the zoom links nearer the time. We are asking for donations to support the artists and the team at Wider Horizons, Into the Wild and Aniwa who give a lot to make this all happen.  You can make donations here. 

The workshops are designed to help you open new parts of yourself.  The contributors include professors, doctors, lecturers, shamen, artists as well as other practitioners from a variety of healing disciplines. You are able to choose from a diverse programme that includes lucid dreaming, expressive dance, individual and group healing, shared story-writing, yoga and sacred singing. As well as learning new skills, you will have opportunities to explore questions about who we are and the mysteries of consciousness and our relationship with the physical world. Alternative views of the nature of mind and the universe will be presented for you to experience.

We invite everyone to go out into nature for their own personal vision quest during the solstice. Sunrise is at 4.44am! The vision quest is an inward journey into yourself and an outward journey into nature. It involves finding a space in nature to meditate and receive a vision of what to transform to liberate and empower you.

 Evening celebrations will involve music, singing, drumming and dancing. Bring instruments, drums, percussion and dancing feet.

Wider Horizons is a consciousness raising event so we have some agreements we ask you to support.

Be clear and healthy – no drugs or alcohol

Be hygienic – keep your kitchen clean, keep your nails short

Respect the land – no chemical soap, leave no trace (be conscious of where you put rubbish – there are different rubbish bins for compost, recyclables, glass and land fill)

Respect others – Listen to others and share your heart

Give – no buying or selling

Looking forward to seeing you at Wider Horizons @ Wonderland Festival Online 2020!

We would like to explain the donation approach. We wish to bring in the etheric version of the magic hat into this space. The magic hat is passed around at Rainbow gatherings and whoever feels able to contribute does. If anyone feels called to support even if it is a very small donation that would be a wonderful share and an opportunity to energetically embed our collective experience into the present and bolster the strength of Wonderland, and it’s creators, Into the Wild, ANIWA and Wider Horizons in the future. We will share proceeds with our contributors. Our community of artists and events have been adversely affected recently and deeply appreciate your support.

Much love, everyOne.
