This year at C.A.L.M. we are once again offering up a place of Sanctuary for the night time hours from Thursday to Sunday. This is a safe, supportive space for anyone who wants to come in and take a break and have a “time out” from the festival experience. Festivals can be intense... we are here if you encounter any emotional or psychological stress during your journey at the festival. Helpers at the Sanctuary space can assist with providing a calm, quiet space, and if needed can talk to people about how they are doing, or what they are feeling. The philosophy behind this work is that no one should have to go through a difficult time alone if they don’t want to. (Feel called to be a Sanctuary helper? Apply for a membershift as one)
This year the Team at C.A.L.M. will be bringing our healing services throughout the festival via a growing mobile C.A.L.M. initiative. Look for healing practitioner units with the C.A.L.M. arm bands, roaming the forest, equipped with walkies to navigate to the places where healing hands are most-needed. Whether you have some aches & pains that need massaging or some energy you need help balancing, CALM mobile practitioners will be there to call upon. Please be aware that priority will be given to Long Crew members.
C.A.L.M. has created Interactive Engaging Art Installations for us to enjoy, heal and play in. Dive into our Water Temple, the first of the elements, ground in the Earth Temple, stoke your inner fire in the Fire Temple and elevate in the Star Temple. Enjoy the more freestyle components hanging in Space in East Hammockton or stretch out in the Yoga Swing. All Interactive features created to tantalize your senses, open your mind and heart and expand your experience.
This year we are once again offering up a place of Sanctuary, for the night time hours Thursday to Sunday. This is a safe, supportive space for anyone who needs to take a break from the rush, noise and intensity of the music and chaos. A place for a “time out” from the experience. Festivals can be intense... we are here for support if you encounter any emotional or psychological stress during your journey at the gathering.
Sanctuary helpers can assist with providing a calm, quiet space to sit or lay down.They are here to lend an ear if you wish to talk, to check-in with how someone is doing or what they are feeling, and assist in moving through any challenging experiences. The philosophy behind this space is that no one should have to go through a difficult time alone if they don’t want to.
