Connect with Others About Your Wake Up Experience

The 2012 Wake Up Festival was an unforgettable experience for me. I lived in a tent in Rocky Mountain National Park for the duration of the Festival, and woke each morning to find elk roaming freely through the campsite. The setting alone is enough to wake you up! Although I attended several of the amazing talks and presentations, I spent practically all my free time enjoying the top-notch disc golf course on the grounds of the YMCA of the Rockies. I documented what happened during one particular round in my recent Many Voices (Sounds True employee blog) post entitled "The Wake Up Badger." [http://manyvoices.soundstrue.com/the-wake-up-badger/#.UgqYc2S2PCE] Just one of many unexpected and wonderful experiences at the "WUF" as we affectionately call it. Looking back, what I found the most incredible was the palpable energy generated by all of our fellow Festival-goers. Love was evidently beaming out of every human I came across; I'd never seen anything like that before and haven't since, so I'm very eager to head on up to Estes Park for this year's Festival. I can't wait to experience Matthew Fox's Cosmic Mass...

Honored

I helped to organize the first ever Wake Up Festival, last year in 2012. We had no idea, really, what to expect as this was the first time we had ever tried anything like this at Sounds True. We had heard for years from our most faithful listeners that they wanted a live, in-person event where we could gather together and hold an experiment: what would it be like to take all of these inspiring ideas and practices that we'd been a part of for so long and bring them alive in community.

Well, those of you who attended, I think know what happened: it wildly exceeded our expectations. When all said and done, the word that best describes my experience was: honor. I was truly honored to witness the opening, unfolding, and flowering of hundreds and hundreds of friends from all around the world, willing to give whatever it took to open their hearts and minds to the possibility of love, healing, and awakening in their lives.

I'm so looking forward to this year's Festival, which begins next week! I'll be blogging from the Festival in real-time and hope to be updating here as well!

Thank you,
Matt Licata

Uplifting week!

So glad this forum is here to express my gratitude for the wonderful experience of being at both the 2012 and 2013 Wake Up Festivals (plus this year's pre-festival workshop with Mark Nepo). Still processing the many nuances of impact and how to build on the insights and connections as I transition back to my home life tomorrow and work the next day.

Looking forward to keeping in touch here and connecting with others in person if possible in the Los Angeles area in the coming weeks.

Would love to connect with others in Seattle post Wake Up

Hello Everyone,

My name is Mae and I just returned from the Wake Up Festival yesterday. All I can is, "WOW!!!!" So many amazing teachers, teachings, and such a wonderful healing community. I could say a lot right now but I'm still integrating the whole thing. I would love to get to know others in the Seattle area who experienced the Wake Up Festival. Heck, I would love to get to know others who were called to the Festival but were not able to go for one reason or another.

Looking forward to growing our community, something Jack Kornfield said is so essential. :-)

Love & Blessings,
Mae

Seattle Connections

Hello Mae, and anyone else in the Seattle area. I attended the "WUF" in 2012 and 2013. I'd love to get to know others in the area who did also, or who are interested in developing community as Mae has mentioned. 

Is anyone out there planning to see Deva Premal in Seattle in October. Would love to connect. 

All the Best,

Lily

The Cosmic Mass

This year I was only able to attend one night of the Wake Up Festival, and I feel fortunate that I chose to attend the Cosmic Mass. Matthew Fox along with about 20 Sounds True authors and music artists led participants in a four-hour experience of a lifetime. If you were there, you know what I mean. I you missed it, I highly recommend attending a Cosmic Mass if the opportunity presents itself. It is an incredibly powerful, wholly inclusive, mind-body-soul-engaged way to join in community ritual and prayer that will leave you breathless yet inspired!

amen to cosmic mass

I also found the cosmic mass to be a once in a lifetime event that connected me with the divine in a way unlike anything else i had experienced.  Words cannot describe by level of emotion and connectiveness to the oneness of all..  I want to sincerely thank tami for allowing this to be part of my life and it will never be forgotten.

connect with others about your wake up experience

I attend a LOT of these types of events and festivals (grateful!) and have to say that I found Wake Up Festival to be one of the most well done festivals/events of it's kind.  I wrote out a recap, with my favorite quotes/highlights from each of the speakers. It's here, and I'd love to hear your favorite parts and anything I missed! 

http://glad.is/article/i-hope-we-wake-up-together-next-year/

 

I will definitely make it part of my practice to attend every year!

Interested in continuing the Journey of Awakening...

Hello all you beautiful Souls!

My name is Alexandra and I'm a graduate student of Somatic Psychotherapy at Naropa University in Boulder, as well as Yoga teacher and Personal Transformation Coach. I attended the pre-festival event, Into to Shamanic Journeying with Sandra Ingreman. It was a life-changing experience which inspired the name of our newest company, Spirited Journey Retreats. I truly believe that enlightenment is a collective endeavor - which is why events like the Wake Up Festival are so pertinent in the world at this time. I'd like to use this forum to hear about what developments are taking place in all of your lives after the festival, and sharing our offerings as healers, teachers, students, friends - all members of the same Tribe.

A few inspirational teachers/friends and I have put together a Yoga, NLP, Sound Alchemy, Meditation program that connects mind, body, and spirit in a 7 day personal empowerment retreat. This unique offering is specifically designed to facilitate a deepening of your yoga and meditation practice, in an environment that nurtures your whole being.

During this retreat, yoga and meditation will be complimented by the sharing of vibrational offerings of Source Vibrations sound alchemy. In a quest to gain deeper insight into our most authentic nature and harness our full potential, we will facilitate workshops on Ontological philosophy, NLP (Neuro-linguisitic Programming) and Mindful & Sustainable Living, that will assist you in taking a quantum leap on your path of evolution.

Please consider joining us in Thailand this November ~*~

Alexandra
