Even before tropical was in, this song was killing it. Love the deep concert bass drum roll at :30 and the muffled electric guitar riff/”woah, woah, woah” at 1:18.
The Lucent Temple of Consciousness, which plays host to several distinct areas (two yoga stages – Yoga Om & Yoga Namaste – , a Learning Kitchen/Silent Disco, two workshop stages -the Pineal Playground and the Mystery School- a Healing Sanctuary for body work, a meditation area and it’s crown gem, the Temple Stage), is home to inspiring presenters including this year’s headliners Pema Khandro Rinpoche (leading Tibetan Buddhist teacher, humanitarian and scholar), Charles Eisenstein (renowned author of spiritually insightful works like Sacred Economics and The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know Is Possible), David Wolfe (leading health and wellness expert), Jo Tastula and Stuart Watkins (known individually as teachers among the yoga community, but together as alchemical magic) plus many more wisdom keepers in the holistic community.
As the sun disappears and the stars scatter about the sky, the Temple morphs into an after-hours hotspot with Ecstatic Dance sets, including a DJ set by Tasha Blank, as well as the Temple’s new late night Intimate Musical Encounters with top musicians including Chet Faker (DJ set) and Nahko. Decompress and let your heart engage in a dance of rhythmic vibrations as a few of your favorite LIB headliners take you on a journey from the inner depths of their soul. Sound healings, ritual performances, spoken word and multi-media art are just a few of the other nightly activities one may stumble upon at the Temple stages. In 2016, the Temple welcomes those who purchased the new Early Arrival Pass with a Cacao Ceremony – an intentional gathering using the gentle cacao plant to facilitate heart opening journeys.
