About Lovelight


The Meaning of the Lovelight Festival: A Meditation

To celebrate life with art, yoga, music, and dance to enlighten ourselves through community. 

 

The Lovelight Yoga and Arts Festival is a wholly interactive canvas on which you are a co-creator of a community masterpiece. At Lovelight, all the world’s a stage and the line between performer and participant is blurred.

 

We rejoice in the human experience and inspire personal growth through exchanging information, artistic expression, and random acts of kindness.

We seek to enlighten and empower as well as encourage expression and participation. We  share the light inside of us and know that we are warmed by the light in others. 

All attendees are encouraged to perform and share their art and intellect with radical participation. 

The Lovelight community is so rich with talent and wisdom, everyone plays a part in a cosmic passion play that creates inspiration, knowledge and brotherhood. 

 

Lovelight is a place to highlight and strengthen that which we practice every day and deeply cherish: kindness, creativity, and acceptance of those who may walk a different path but seek the same destination— as the great Integral Yogi Swami Satchidananda said "The paths are many, but the truth is one."

 

We support these organizations that shine their Lovelight on those in need.
Please visit their booths and get involved!

DrumsForCures 501(c)(3) produces DRUMSTRONG™ interactive rhythm experiences globally raising awareness and funds supporting cancer survivorship, education and research.

DrumsForCures was created as a natural expression of our family’s natural desire to be a vibrant part of beating cancer. Since rhythm is universal we decided that an event centered around the art and fun of hands on drumming would be a great way to bring people together.

Our mission is to provide vehicles for health entities and cancer societies to show communities the resources at hand to assist in directing and easing cancer concern, Facilitating the "introduction"  and advancement of important organizations supporting those dealing with cancer, promoting early detection and working towards cures is our goal, and a cause that is close to ou heart, No matter where you are, you will find an event near you.

Children of Tibet Trust Foundation ... The children of Tibet are our mission. By helping them, we will help preserve their heritage and improve the well being of all people of Tibet.

The Foundation helps the children of Tibet be healthy by supplementing their diets while in school, providing regular clinic services and ensuring adequate clothing and bedding.

We contribute to their education by providing needed school supplies and equipment, repairing school facilities, and recognizing and rewarding teaching excellence.

The Foundation provides scholarships to deserving students to pursue further studies in Tibet as well as other places.

For those children who pursue further education in the United States, we will find willing families to provide these students a home away from home.

Promote a comprehensive concept of health: We recognize that spiritual and cultural renewal, economic self-sufficiency, environmental wellness, and medical services are important to well-being.

Create long-term partnerships: We are responsive to the changing needs and conditions of the people and programs with whom we work. By developing close relationships with local organizations and community leaders, we build trust, mutual respect, and cultural understanding.

Expand self-reliance: We promote self-reliance and aim to reduce dependence on outside assistance.  We seek sustainable solutions that come from within individuals and communities so our partners continue delivering services long after our involvement has ended.
