Transformational Art, Music and Workshop Event in Santa Barbara, CA
Council for Peace
Council for Peace is a collective of indigenous elders and cultural wisdom keepers from around the world. These Ambassadors believe through witnessing our commonalities and acknowledging the Creator-Source presence within all people that evolving our relationship with each other and the earth are possible. The Council For Peace work together to create a safe and inclusive space for our community, where many voices can be expressed and heard. Members of the Council, including Carmen Sandoval - a representative of the local band of Santa Ynez Chumash - walk the grounds with us each year before we begin building the festival, to ask the land and animals permission, and bless the space for all who are about to come together. The Council also facilitates our Opening and Closing Ceremonies during the festival, they participate on visionary panels covering topics on Spirituality, Regenerative Future, Anti-Oppression, and Social Activism in the Altar of Spirit. Some Ambassadors additionally offer massage and energy work through I AM Healing while others share wisdom through workshops and presentation.
