E76: Lucidity Festivals: Eudamonia, Lucid University, Festival Culture and Beyond! w. Jonah Hass
The Lucidity Festival, nestled in the hills above Santa Barbara, CA, is stepping into the 6th year of its 6-year story April 7-9th 2017, signifying a finale of sorts, and the conclusion of one cycle. Eudaimonia, this year’s theme, is loosely translated as “human flourishing and having a good indwelling spirit”, and it most certainly represents Lucidity’s optimistic look to the future. While the future of the festival beyond this year is unwritten, we do know that the Lucid University, a transformational education platform that was incubated within Lucidity Festival, is poised to blossom as it grounds a campus and permanent home on a community-purchased property called Trillium in Southern Oregon.
In today’s show find out from Lucidity co-founder Jonah Gabriel Hass the secrets to throwing an event like Lucidity, and learn how to participate and join the team. Find out what makes Lucidity so unique and why Dr. Kelly remains so LIT for this festival, year after year. You will also get the full run down on Lucid University’s April 3-5th course offerings including Aryuvedic Herbalism, Dream Council, Regenerative Community Building, Creating Your Personal Mythology, Building with Bamboo and Ecstatic Flow Arts: Movement and Power!
