Live Music Contest Info

Submit your Regeneration Earth Original Song for a chance to win a live music set at Lucidity Festival 2020!

Your submission should be 3-5 minutes in length.

Here is the Regeneration Earth prompt for some songwriting inspiration:

“Seed a New Garden. Awakening and watching, watching and learning, learning and doing. We are engaged in a beautifully entangled process of expansion that we know through our feeling, sensing, observing, behaving, and growing. Along with a growing global perspective, we elongate our sense of responsibility for our actions on Earth well beyond our own lives. We see many generations into the future, and give thanks to countless generations of our ancestors. We step confidently into this big place, knowing our actions and deeds affect all of life and ripple outward in infinite directions. We are ready once again to get to work, to dig our hands in the dirt and build a new garden that our children and their children’s children will tend. We saw Eudaimonia as a possibility in a fleeting dream years ago, and some part of us knows in our hearts that it is so always already, perhaps on some parallel timeline or dimension. We are ready to sound the horns and call it back in. Water is life. Breath is life. Soil is life. Heartfully grown food is life. We stand up again and resolve to be Guardians, Stewards and Engaged Activators, not just for our own backyards, not just for the village we call home, but for our communities of communities and for our precious garden planet.”
