FREE YOUR VOICE with Lillie Lumina

Explore the delight of embodied expression through sound! Using a combination of breathwork and vocal sounds we will explore stepping into using our voices without fear or judgement. We will practice holding each person’s unique expression within community. For all people with voices. No singing experience necessary!

Lillie Lumina is a Board-Certified Music Therapist, Singer-Songwriter, Reiki Practitioner, and Vocal Explorer based out of Asheville, NC. She believes firmly in the power of music to heal, transform, and connect us as human beings and is passionate about creating safe containers for people to access this power.


This interactive talk is for those who dream of living with a group of people but don't know where to start. Chloe and Lylia will discuss the top benefits of community living, the most common issues, and tangible action steps that any group can apply.

Combined Chloe and Lylia have 50 years of community building experience. They served on the Global Ecovillage Network and have graduated over 100 students from their course, Grounding Your Village.

SENSORY JAM YOGA with Alexis Bartolina

This workshop will be a compilation of breath and fluid movement, accompanied by live music. Available to all levels and strengths, this flow will guide us towards deep tranquility and surrender, grounded by the frequency of sound. Please bring anything that will help you to feel settled and comfortable, like a pillow, blanket, mat and anything you’d like to put on the altar.

Alexis is a passionate and energetic yoga instructor with her E-RYT training. She has been sharing her practice since 2016. She is motivated to assist her students in the art of relaxation through breath, sound, movement and deep Earth connection. 



From the heart of Appalachia, I,Star rises… Encompassing a core fusion of emcee/producer Truth-I Manifest’s potent lyrical flow and production, and singer/songwriter Aradhana Silvermoon’s angelic melodies and guitar licks, this husband-wife duo's performances are a dynamic interplay of hard-hitting rhymes weaving through evocative refrains, building to harmonies in the hooks.

The Botanikals

The Botanikals are an indie-soul band from Asheville, NC. Their memorable sound and stage presence has landed them opportunities performing with national acts such as Matisyahu, Gone Gone Beyond, Satsang and Yaima. Heartfelt lyrics lay the foundation for intricately crafted three-part harmonies, while soulful/funky guitar fill the spaces in between.

Max Ribner

Come experience a harmonic gathering of hearts, mind, body & soul with Max Ribner. 

Bridging the gap between the stage and the audience, Max Ribner brings an immersive experience where the audience becomes the orchestra. In the tradition of our ancient ways, with a wholly modern feel, the 1st Language community experience is a container by which disconnection is felt, and acknowledged, and healed through the power of the witness. 

Amelia Doll

Amelia Doll is a full time musician and visionary artist in the Blue Ridge area. Living simply via bus life, Amelia channels high heart harmonics through song and sound to deliver a soothing and activating feeling within bone of Remembrance. Focusing her music on feeling and soul, Amelia creates a portal of empowerment and self-reflection in a musical setting.


‘Runya’ is the DJ project of Noah Proudfoot. His mixes are as eclectic as they are energizing- incorporating elements of medicine music, hip hop, and world fusion.


The silky soulful sounds of BlackNote roll thick and deep like the mists of nostalgia on dark streets of rhythm. Calling on sounds from his youth and weaving them into a modern textile.

Bridging worlds & weaving genres, Atum invites us to expand our musical edges, inspire movement and simply have fun being human. With a zeal for quantum mechanics, healing arts and the way frequencies influence our somatic experience, Atum embodies these aspects through a unique creative voice. His sets are spectral melodic musings never lacking in depth of heart or mind.
