"The festival has had a major impact on my life"

The festival has had a major impact on my life. Listening to Marc’s teachings felt like coming home, receiving the deep holy transmission weaved together with intellectual challenge. The festival is not just a place for personal transformation, but it is a magical field that awakens our unique self so together as a community we can birth a new humanity. The festival feels like my mothership where each year I come home to be with beloved friends, to fill myself up with love, inspiration, knowledge and a clear vision to share in my own work as a teacher & priestess. It is an amazing feeling to be plugged into a dharma and community, transforming the world together, knowing each of our lives has tremendous meaning. Forever grateful for this field of love that nourishes my heart every day!

"A caring, loving playground"

During the festivals of love, there is a caring, loving playground. Here is the place where I feel loved, needed and invited to investigate if my convictions are still true today. By the practices that are offered, I get new information in my system. As a result of those investigations, I am reclaiming my self love and esteem. I experience my courage, my perseverance and that what I say and do, has an impact on my environment. I am starting to experience that I am less shy in a strange company. I am learning to say what is on my mind and heart. And I have learned the hard way with this beautiful group of people that my need is an allurement for another. Probably you recognize that when someone asks you to help him or her, you immediately say yes. But what happens to you, when you need someone to help you. Do you ask for help? I certainly did not. Too afraid, that I was rejected, considered a pain in the ass, a nag. That I wasn’t worth it. By asking the help I needed, I learned that the pain in the ass, a nag, not worthy are my believes.
