The Fool is the Archetype of Emergence and therefore exactly what we need right now. The Fool is the one who trusts the unknown, aware and cocreating in the moment, responsive, flexible, curious and courageous. 

If you want to expand in any of these areas, come. If your soul longs for more aliveness and depth, come. If you want to be immersed with skilled embodied teachers with decades of experience of working with emergence, come. 

We are a professional group working with performance, shamanism, leadership development, authentic relating, tai chi and dance who invite everyone to come and cocreate magic and leave empowered, connected and able to cocreate in emergence in whatever field you are in. CONTRIBUTORS LIST BELOW!!!

Learn the medicine of the troubadour and clown who are real, playful and honest.
Taste the art of storytelling, creating moments of connection and presence. 
Practice being and relating with all of yourself in authentic relating, Social Presencing Theatre and dance.

Uplevel your facilitation skills, deepen your awareness, learn through play. 
All these are aspects of the Fool Archetype, the one who is surrendered and in service of Right Now.  


The Festival is an immersion in the practice of emergence, of allowing things to unfold, of tending the moment, the space with love so the best possible thing can happen.  You have the chance to
