We were born to live creatively.
Let’s come together and dare to be inspiring.
Let’s create culture together.
Through sharing wisdom, ideas, dancing, singing, painting, sharing story, poem and song, balancing our minds, our hearts and our bodies, and honoring nature, ourselves and one another, we come together without excuse to share our beauty.
Unifier Festival will bring together an amazing group of inspirational artists and educators. This is a sacred celebration of all that we are and all that we can be.
Honoring and bringing together different sub-cultures, this gathering is a yoga festival, a sacred world music festival, and a tribal belly dance festival. It is a live art show, a dance party, a place for ceremony, for permaculture, for sculptural works and circus arts. It is a place to care for the land and to eat organic food, and to be inspired and inspire our kids and our elders.
A significant portion of proceeds from Unifier Festival over multiple years will be put in a Land Trust Fund for a retreat center and potential eco-village to be owned in perpetuity, governed by council, and in service to the community.
Just by attending this gathering, just by showing up and having an amazing time, you will be supporting the creation of a place where people come together to share creativity, culture, knowledge and wisdom through various mediums in the healing and expressive arts with a focus on a healthy relationship to the natural world.
“The power of humanity comes from people getting together and unifying. Choose what to unify around” Ac Tah- the Walking Shaman
It is our aim to leave the Land that holds us more beautiful than how we find it.
And to offer these days together as a fertile ground for sparking new ideas and projects.

From Our Council Members
These are the folks who have agreed to hold the vision and be in service to the Sacred Land that our community human-i-FESTS:
“One of the reasons I’m excited about Unifier is not only the obvious: “let’s come together for the Earth and future generations” but also that it is an incubator for a new Earth-honoring culture. Learning how to do that is the most compelling task of our times and, if we choose, the most enjoyable. Unifier is where we feel our strength as we take baby steps into something so ecstatic and different we may hardly recognize ourselves. Can’t wait to see you there!”
