Following the well received Conscious Frontiers Programme at Sunrise Festival in June 2012 featuring an exciting line up of talks, performances and film screenings from cutting edge holistic pioneers, as illustrated in this video, Conscious Frontiers launched the groundbreaking Future NOW spiritual ecology conference in Bristol in November 2014 – for further information visit the Future NOW event page.
With a core theme of ‘Love’ weaving through the four Sunrise Festival evenings, the Conscious Frontiers Programme aimed to explore and express the parameters of the evolving new consciousness and included an eclectic mix of global rhythms and flavours.
From inspiring talks with ‘Extreme Pilgrim’ Peter Owen Jones and ‘1 Giant Leap’ Jamie Catto, to spirited performances from Sheikh Ahmad Dede and his Sufi whirling dervishes and The Lani Singers from West Papua, the Conscious Frontiers Programme was a soul stirring and mind expanding journey into world wisdom, sacred music and the emerging path of heart.
The Conscious Frontiers line up at Sunrise included:
|Satish Kumar||Soul, Soil, Society (talk)|
|Leo Rutherford||The Shaman’s Path for the Modern World (talk)|
|Tim Wheater||Ancient Sounds of the Future (sacred sounds)|
|Tim Freke||The Mystery Experience (talk)|
|The Lani Singers||Songs of Freedom (concert)|
|Sheikh Ahmad Dede||The Dance of the Whirling Dervishes (concert and performance)|
|Peter Owen Jones||Tipping Point (talk)|
|Jamie Catto||Transforming the Shadows – Unleash Your Creative Genius (talk)|
|Dominic Brown||Forgotten Bird of Paradise (film screening & Q&A)|
|Rebecca Tantony||‘Love’ and other poems|
|Mags MacKean||Interviews Leo Rutherford re practical application of shamanism|
The programme was presented by Will Gethin of Conscious Frontiers, who also hosted interviews with Tim Wheater and Tim Freke about music and spirituality, with Benny Wenda of The Lani Singers about his remarkable story of escape from West Papua, and with Peter Owen Jones and Satish Kumar about what it means to be a pilgrim in the modern world.
