The A.U.M. Festival

July 25-30, 2007

 

Converging on the Day Out of Time, Culminating with the Full Moon

Ozark Mountains, NW Arkansas

 

http://www.aumfestival.net

 

 

The A.U.M Festival will establish a safe gathering space that facilitates the exploration of consciousness and connectedness through inspired, underground psychedelic trance music and culture. It will encourage the growth of the North American psy-community; emphasize our ability to heal ourselves and each other; embrace an open, multi-generational perspective; and promote an earth conscious, leave no trace ethic.

 

Join us for 4 nights and 5 days as we gather high up in the beautiful ridges, cliffs and crystal encrusted landscapes of the Ozark Mountains to create a temporary autonomous zone. Imagined boundaries will melt away as we come together to raise the collective vibration through psychedelic music, art and dance. Each day of the festival will be devoted to honoring one of the Five basic Elements as we spiral towards the center: Earth, Air, Fire, Water and Spirit.

 

You will also find the Elements represented among the festival's main areas:

 

 

FIRE -----> PSYCHEDELIC TRANCEFLOOR

 

Transform yourself with the passion of ecstatic dance!

Building in intensity throughout the week, the mainstage will kick off on Thursday July 26 and go until Monday July 30. Sunday is the full moon so make your travel plans accordingly!

No, but you may have seen me running around. I was one of 3 people that I noticed with children. My son and myself came out. We hung around Tamara and Henry of the Freedom Bus (the burrito bus, the free salad bus, the PURPLE bus) because of Tamara's son, Zarek who was my son's age. =]

 

I was wearing a Tip Records hoody one night, a 3rd mind records long sleeve shirt another night, among other things.

Yeah, Henry was cooking up some mad food. It was a good time. We probably did just miss meeting. But I will be coming out that way sooner than later to hang with Paula, Vladamir, and their daughter, Sarai. Also, I will be going to REUNION in NC =] and I think you'll be there, yeah? I'll be moving down to Arkansas in a few weeks here and after the Gammafest at EMP, we're heading over to NC for Reunion by TS at Deerfields.

 

So, if you're there, maybe we'll meet there. Haheh =] Funny cause we've talked and engaged in many topics on this forum in the past and I used to talk to you on AIM I am pretty sure.

 

Love and light,
