A festival of awakening and reconnecting with our wild nature, through movement, voice, community and world class live music. With an exquisite line-up of musicians and facilitators from the world of conscious dance, voice and sacred/world/folk music, this promises to be a magical weekend.
We are THRILLED to have the opportunity to work with the amazing Peia, who is on a European tour and making her first ever appearance in the UK. As well as performing a Saturday night concert in the gorgeous St Lawrence Church in Stroud and a Voice Workshop on Sunday afternoon in The Trinity Rooms, she has also agreed to co-create an amazing MOVEMENT MEDICINE Cacao ceremony with Keef Wesolowski Miles, Wioletta Wesolowska Miles, Bonnie McAteer, SUSIE RO, SIVANI and TABLA TOM. This promises to be a MAGNIFICENT HAPPENING.
We are also honoured and excited to have the opportunity to work with the inimitable SUSIE RO, the exquisitely devotional SIVANI MATA, the multi-talented TABLA TOM, the wonderful dancing heart warrior DAWN MORGAN and multi instrumentalist extraordinaire NICK TWILLEY, the medicine angel BONNIE McAteer, the uniquely skilled DJ OSARA, the fabulous spirit flautists BELEN&RIKK and the poetically percussive PANG ORCHESTRA

VISION of the founders of AWAKENING THE WILD
~ Keef Wesolowski-Miles and Wioletta Wesolowska-Miles
We are Awakening the Wild. We are passionate about creating collaborative community gatherings and holding sacred spaces for healing, transformation and celebration for individuals and groups. We recognise the need in ourselves as 21st century human beings for connection, movement, touch, space to breathe, places to create together, to heal together, to sing and dance and laugh together, to sit around the sacred fire, to reconnect to nature and our own true natures and to tell good stories, life affirming stories. We believe in the genius of humans to grow, adapt, heal and create beauty. We believe in embracing the inner child and honouring the children, family and future generations. We believe in honouring our elders, ancestors and All Our Relations.
We believe in soul gardening ~ sowing dream seeds, rooting the body, flowering the heart, cultivating the mind. We believe in environmental sustainability and replenishment, social justice and spiritual freedom. This is our inspiration, our invocation and invitation: may we learn to remember, together, that our true nature is NATURE, we are elemental beings and we are all related. This movement is medicine. This is LOVE in ACTION. This is poetic presence. This is Awakening the Wild.
