Cosmic Drip

Light Mantra Activations • Interconnected Touch

There are sacred codes that help activate our light bodies and interconnect with the world around us in new and fun ways. How the sacred sound codes work through me come from a place of Divine Love and Divine Safety even if the tones sound different.

In this workshop, Ashbee will be holding space for these frequencies to come through and help to connect to the deeper parts of all of us; offering suggestions on how to connect with your own inner sanctuary. The first part of the workshop will involve singing and speaking with an invitation of hands on work. Then there will also be space to offer collective sounds and tones within the group. Activate your own voice from root chakra, to sacral, to throat, and beyond.. This space will be held with honor, safety, authenticity and most importantly Divine self expression to connect to your own inner truth. Come experience tools for heart expansion and growth in ease, joy, and grace

BIO: With a degree in exercise science from Auburn University and an advanced 1150-hour certification from the Colorado Institute of Massage Therapy, Ashbee knows massage and its benefits well with over 20 years of experience. In her work as a certified neuromuscular therapist (CNMT), she has evolved her understanding of fascial knowledge to incorporate Vacuum Therapy Cupping. She has created her own unique approach of addressing both polarities of the pull/push application that increases the effectiveness of the tissue health and more. These benefits can release stress, muscle tightness and pain in the body.

With her own evolution of understanding the sacredness of the body elemental, she offers support not only with the sacred physical, but also, holding space to help others connect with their own divine expression. This offering is through silence, voice activations, a listening ear, and gentle suggestions to co-create a new way of expression.

Just Do It – Dance • Karen Lasher

Have you ever wished you could be the one dancing freely at a concert or festival? Do you wait until the dance floor is full or until you’ve consumed some form of “courage” to allow yourself to dance? If so, this workshop is for you! We will uncover and discuss what holds you back from dancing and I’ll give you tools to untether yourself from these narratives. We will explore some movements designed to help you make that move to the dancefloor easier, and then we will practice what we have learned in a safe container. Join me for a workshop that has the power to elevate your festival experience as well as your life.

BE THE STORYTELLER • Karen Lasher

Everything is a story. As you read this you are most likely telling yourself a story about me, this workshop, and the festival. Our lives are filled with stories told by others in an effort to entice us, encourage us and even control us. One of the most powerful tools we have is the ability to be the storyteller of our lives. In this interactive workshop we will explore the power of story and how it can impact your daily life. We will provide writing tools for you, but if you have a personal journal bring it with you.

BIO: Karen Lasher is an elder residing in the Pacific Northwest, living in her Happy Day Van dancing through the days, spreading love and light wherever she goes.

Primal Vinaysa • Annie Adamson

Break free from habitual movement patterns and experience the authentic, natural wisdom within your body. Join Annie Adamson, founder and CEO of Primal Vinyasa. She created Primal Vinyasa because she firmly believes that movement is your birthright—that each and every one of us has the power to bring our bodies back into balance and live life not just pain-free, but self-empowered to truly thrive.

One of the most common questions Annie receives is, “How is Primal Vinyasa different from yoga?”
Primal Vinyasa was born out of Annie’s desire to integrate the healing power of yoga with the wisdom of natural movement and earth medicine. We are naturally dynamic, strong, flexible, and deeply intuitive. Our bodies are born to move, but in our modern world, too much repetition often leads to stagnation, injury, and pain.

Instead of relying on alignment as a one-size-fits-all method, Primal Vinyasa is a process of repatterning movement that teaches participants to use their body’s natural intelligence and strength to tap into their innate potential for healing. The result is a self-inquiry dynamic movement practice that truly serves each unique body – the way it was born to move.

Annie’s mission is to break the one-size-fits-all model of prescriptive practice and offer a holistic, diverse method of movement that’s truly accessible, empowering, and healing for ALL.

  • Personalize Herbal Practices: Break free from the one-size-fits-all model and learn to work with herbs in a way that is truly tailored to each person’s unique constitution and imbalances.

This workshop is perfect for anyone interested in a holistic approach to herbal medicine, whether you’re a beginner or have prior experience with herbs. Join us to cultivate a deeper, more intuitive connection with the plant world and enhance your ability to support health and wellness naturally.

BIO: Annie has been studying the systems of natural medicine for nearly three decades. She has mentored with world-renowned teachers like Doug Keller, Pixie Lighthorse, and Tami Kent, and has certified a thriving community of yoga practitioners, healers, and healthcare providers in her own clinical body of work through The PRIMAL MEDICINE Academy. What originally began as a career in yoga therapy developed into her Holistic Practitioner model, where she integrates tools and practices from different systems of holistic medicine to help clients awaken to greater health, healing and self-empowerment.

In alignment with her belief that the world needs more holistic healers, Annie’s mission is to help other wellness providers explore how they can bring health and vitality to their communities — and enjoy the wealth and abundance that can come from that noble path.

Today, she works as a clinician and runs a flourishing online business where she offers high-level certification and mentoring programs, coaching individuals to unearth their full potential as movement experts, holistic healers, and profitable small business owners.

Her work has been featured on Yoga International, Yoga Journal, and Grokker, amongst other prominent wellness platforms.
