-Camp Grier in Old Fort, NC, (30 minutes from Asheville) October 3rd to 5th-
Now in its third year the Three Days of Light Gathering (3DL), ignites western North Carolina with inspiration, activation, and celebration through music, art, healing workshops, and connection.
This year we’re excited to announce our youth village: a magical space where learning and play become one dance by focusing on dreaming awake the new earth. Adults and children will be encouraged to manifest, through dreaming and play, the world they wish to create.
At the youth village there will be activities all weekend such as: yoga, meditation, hoop dance, slacklining, art projects, storytelling, sing alongs, face painting, mandala painting, nature exploration/plant identification, beekeeping, and more. On Saturday at 3DL there will be a parade around the gathering grounds. Costumes are encouraged!
3DL features family friendly rustic and modern lodging as well as camping options to fit any budget. Prices range from $125 to $250 and include accommodations, and access to ALL workshops, special events, and performances. Day and weekend passes are available starting at $30 for the day. Admission is free for children ages 12 and under.
Light Way Schools, an organization that guides parents in the design and implementation of alternative and democratic home schooling programs, will be hosting the workshop: “Dream, Believe, Create: Education for the New Earth.”
They will be offering a complimentary three week course, Empowered Parents, Inspired Children, (E.P.I.C.), a virtual, live coaching, training, and support program for parents, educators, and community members who need help with alternative, democratic homeschooling. Participants can engage with this course from anywhere in the world. In addition, all who take the course will receive a complimentary private consultation with Zahra Lightway, the founder of Light Way Schools.
Other featured workshops at the youth village include: “Mindfulness for Children and Families Playshop” with Amanda Amethyst and “A Vision for Co-creating Whole Children” with Danica Joan Fields.
