Filed under: PolenBabble — Twin C @ 11:13 am

Here’s an event that I will be attending, and A and B and Kissyfur will be performing at, or at least setting up blinkies for.  Lots of our other friends are also performing and/or involved. . .

EVOLVER:
Public Talk with Sharon Gannon, & Daniel Pinchbeck, Opening Body Prayer with David Life
Reality Sandwich and Jivamukti Yoga School presents…
Evolver:”Wake Up and Dream”

What happens when America’s most visionary city starts building a new world by living out its dreams?
Take an overnight journey into a realm of new possibilities with otherworldly music, performance, ideas, art and alchemy. Drift through a labyrinth of rooms full of enchanted activities, glowing and pulsing artwork, exotic performers, magical chill caves, futuristic playgrounds, and endless spontaneity.

Featuring the city’s finest lucid dreamers, including globe-spanning DJs and devotional dancers, hula hoopers and healers, performers and poets, musicians and meditation masters and that big bold playful dreamer — You!

This is the first in a series of freakishly fun experiments from Reality Sandwich. Their goal is to spread ideas, connect people and reinvigorate life with creativity and spirit. As the seasons change, expect more invitations to participate in reality-changing events.

If we can build it here, we can build it anywhere. So, let’s get together, New York, and start dreaming.
