Festival of the Muses is a gathering, September 15th-17th 2017, with the intention to honor the Divine Feminine, to fill ourselves with laughter, learning, healing, creative inspiration, and self-love, so that we might return to the world brighter, balanced and more inspired. With help from the sacred warm waters of Joyful Journey Hot Springs, the healing powers of music, and through the strength of building community, we aim to celebrate the Goddess Womyn, in all her creative forms.
We are honored to offer skill-share and knowledge based workshops that explore old techniques, ancient skills, and feminine based knowledge. Our Workshop Guide registration is now open, and will close May 30th. Check back as we continue to update workshops and skill-share offerings.
JOYFUL JOURNEY HOT SPRINGS
We meet among the sacred healing waters of Joyful Journey Hot Springs. The water, hot and straight from Mother Earth, is rich with minerals like boron, lithium, and calcium, and the pools are kept at 98-108 degrees. Relax and treat yourself to these womb-like waters.
Music is healing for the soul. We are honored in the evenings to witness the musical graces of these women. More musical guests and schedule coming soon.
We are honored to have the support of some wonderful, forward moving companies.
