Spring 2017 Offerings

Greetings to the Living Village Culture family!

We are living in unprecedented times. 

Uncertainty and Inspiration exist inside of each moment, waiting for us to choose which path we will take.

In these days, it is more important than ever to educate ourselves, to come together and share ideas about self-care, community care, and earth care. 

It is from this understanding that we invite you to experience The Compass, the culmination and evolution of the past four years of our work with Lightning in a Bottle.

This newly reimagined area of LIB offers a diverse array of educational opportunities that engage the senses, expand the mind, and inspire community action.


illuminating our world
Our largest gathering place, the Beacon holds our keynote presentations from visionaries and leaders across many disciplines and lineages. We will also be hosting carefully curated music and performance.

standing up for our world
Our center of planetary activism at LIB, the Landing houses the Earth Activist Hub, to engage with current indigenous, environmental and wildlife campaigns; and the Grid, a place for learning about new technologies and their evolutionary applications. This also houses the Ecology Bazaar, hosting a network of organizations where one can learn how to integrate all of these actions into our lives beyond the festival.

making our world
Home to the Community Lodge, the Witch’s Hut and the Paleo Arts, Botanical Arts and Folk Arts Arbors, the Craft is the place to learn various skills and crafts related to living in harmony with the earth and making beauty. 

exploring our world
A place for global culture at LIB, the Crossroads offers classes in traditional music and dance and the history of the cultures they come from. It will also be a place to experience intimate performances from world class traditional musicians and performers.

healing our world
The Haven is a place to receive bodywork and healing sessions, as well as to learn about these modalities in the Healing Arts Study, a place for intimate classes around physical, emotional and spiritual healing arts.

intuiting our world
A home for mystical and esoteric studies, this is a place of magic, a place to engage directly with the mysteries of the world, and begin to explore our place within them.

nourishing our world
The Feast houses the Learning Kitchen as well as the Last Supper Club’s Brunch Club and other opportunities to experience the sensory delights of food culture.
