This past weekend I had an amazing experience at Lucid University's home-warming party and first event on the land at Trillium in the Applegate Valley of Southern Oregon, just an hour from my hometown. Between the heart-opening circles, ceremonies, dance, music and play, the amazing and therapeutic time in such beautiful nature there in the mountains, and the deeply idea-provoking, inspiring and excitement inducing dialogue about the visions of this place and what the future holds, I came away feeling nourished, rejuvenated and activated in so many good ways.
When I first found out about Trillium and Lucidity Festival's intention to create an education center and grounded hub for conscious community retreats, and learning, I could hardly believe that such a dream could be manifesting! The Lucid Family and their vision and vital alignment resonated with me and activated me so profoundly my first year at Lucidity Festival, and in conjunction with the amazing Permaculture Action Course 2015 (the first of it's kind and one among the first courseweek offerings at Lucidity) launched me into unparalleled transformation in my life and sent me on a path that I am still on today, gave me deeply rooted purpose and an incredibly powerful sense of belonging and community that has stayed strong ever since.
Trillium is practically in my backyard! These forests and mountains have been my home since birth, and knowing that Lucid University has found a home here is so surreal in the best way possible. Damn near all the dreams and visions I've cultivated in my life thus far fit in with the vision that is Lucid University: Wholistic and integrated education, regeneration, community building, healing, creativity, innovation, and in general amassing livingry... All of this I've been dreaming of co-creating since, well, probably lifetimes ago! EcologyWorks, CommunityWorks, CreativeWorks... the list goes on of the amazing learning tracks that Lucid University is birthing forward and cultivating to become lives of their own. It is an incredible blessing in both my own life and in that of my home and community of Southern Oregon for this project to be blossoming.
I am stoked beyond words to be a part of this unfolding and to continue to co-create and to witness this vision come to life...
I hope to see my fellow Shifters out there on the land and among the trees real soon!
