It’s Time to Be!
To be ourselves, closer to Self. The closest. Dropping useless, illusionary. Leaving just what is true. With the joy of life. With the dance, song, with music of the heart.
To be true, alive, shining in joy and love.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN ?
We meet in for the third time in the forests of Latvia by the banks of beautiful river Daugava in Umuri, Ķegums to raise to higher hights and dive into deepest depths!
The festival includes the celebration of Summer Saulstice and rituals during Līgo night in our own special way which is different from traditional. It will be a call from the depths of our hearts to reunite with the Soul of Mother Earth – it’s quintessence!
Four fulfilled days where the forces of East, South, West and North are intertwined. Three nights filled with mistycal experiences. To honor Mother Earth, her power and support. In honor of her sacred union with Heaven, from which, we were created. In honor of our ancestors and their heritage. We celebrate in the prayer of dance and song for our Divine future.
WHY SHAMANISM ?
From the steppes of the Himalaya to the jungles of Guatemala, shamanism is a ritual belief system that has been practiced for over 27,000 years. Shamanism is an ancient healing tradition and a way of life. Its teaching focus on our connection to nature and all of creation.
Since ancient times shamanic rituals have served to unite us with Mother Nature, Mother Earth and energies of healing, enlightening and spiritual nature.
The time has come to return to our Core, our Quintessence. The Shamanic path is powerful support to get to know oneSelf. Which is crucial to develop the bond with Mother Earth and all that is.
