Live dance set feat. AMANI & PORANGUI

For nearly two decades, Amani Friend of Desert Dwellers has also been at the helm of the global-electronic project Liquid Bloom. Feeling equally at home on the international festival dance circuit, in the yoga studio, and in the more subtle sonic spaces reserved for intentional ceremonies guided by ancient allies, the wide-ranging artist collective under the umbrella of the Liquid Bloom project spans distance, time, and dimensions of mind.

Ecstatic dance with tribal instrumentation, acoustic sound-healing, and live looping

Poranguí is a musician, healer, and creative, residing amidst the red rocks of Sedona, AZ. Steeped in music and ceremony since birth, Poranguí was raised between the lands and cultures of his native Brazil, Mexico, and the Southwestern United States. Carrying on his lineage, he offers uplifting music and sound healing designed to awaken the body, mind, and soul... An evening with Poranguí might take you on a journey from deep, earthy didgeridoo grooves to high-vibe ecstatic Brazilian beats to blissful African kalimba lullabies. Serenades and storytelling to beat boxing and booty shaking: Together, these make an unforgettable experience.

Sacred theater with musical impressarios and masters of illusion

Originating in 2002 on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala, Lunar Fire, now based in Denver Colorado, takes audiences to new heights with spectacular dance and musical performances. Pre-Columbian flutes, multilingual vocalists, powerful drummers and a wide range of bass styles tell stories reflected in dance. Aerialists fly, drop from the sky, crawl into a cocoon and emerge a warrior, a nature spirit, an animal guide. World class musicians and performers pay homage to the ancestors and future generations of urban and ethnic cultures worldwide.

Conscious rap feat. DJ Treaphort, Nirete "Amor" Llopis & MC YashAkasha

Primordial presence meets purposed creative flow... and it's fresh to death.

Beloved local DJ, Rob Treaphort, and interdimensionally touring MC, YashAkasha, have joined forces with a striking and powerful vocalist, Nirete "Amor" Llopis, to form a Renaissance Triad like no other. Together they co-create the ultimate Hermetic Hip Hop fusion for the Current Era. The grooves make you move, the vocals are rich and rootsy, and the lyricism—right on the money. Through the ancient codex of rhythm and rhyme, we gain access to a secret alphabet, a universal language, and a supreme intelligence.

Collective invocations through movement, song, and dance

Dances of Universal Peace are a form of circle dances designed to bring the experience of prayer from many world traditions into the body, voice, heart and spirit. The Dances originated in the late 1960’s through the vision of Murshid Samuel Lewis, a universalist Sufi master. The Dances have since been carried around the world, infused with intentions of peace and harmony. All Dances of Universal Peace are done in circles, which facilitates a communal experience of balance and mutual respect amongst all participants.

"The Dances I lead are tailored to the unique energy of each circle and designed with an awareness of the cycles and seasons of the earth, the energy and interests of the community, and celebrations of different spiritual traditions."
--Sára Rain

CACAO CEREMONY & BREATH-WORK with Yasha and Ariana

Medicinal Cacao and liberating cathartic Breathwork practice

Cacao is a sacred plant medicine from Central and South America. It has a strong effect on both the physical and the subtle bodies. Cacao awakens and stills the mind, opens and activates the heart, and stimulates and clears the cardiovascular channels. Since time immemorial, Native cultures like the Maya have been well-aware of its potency, which is accentuated with practices of deep cathartic breath-work. Designed to alchemically eliminate the imprints and blockages in every "Chakra", this particular Primordial Breathwork technique comes from the Paititi Institute for the Preservation of Indigenous Culture and Ecology in the Peruvian Andes, where Yasha once lived. Yasha has received the direct encouragement of Roman Hanis and the Paititi Institute to facilitate shamanic breath-work practices, as adapted from the Huitoto nation of the Amazon rainforest.

Yasha is a renaissance being, an MC, and the visionary founder of Worldchangers Organization 501(c)3. He is also a T’ai Chi teacher, Shamanic Breathwork facilitator, dream-reader, and Sufi Dhakir. Yasha is currently in training with the Inter-Tribal Altar of the Golden Drum community, and is studying Kabbalah with the Inayati-Maimuni Order. Having completed his Bachelors in World Wisdom Traditions at Naropa University, Yasha is pursuing graduate-doctoral studies in Archetypal Jungian Psychology. Since childhood, Yasha has traveled all over the world, while receiving and sharing a diverse range of interspiritual, initiatic, and transformational practices. He now offers these techniques of Lucid LifeCare to the members of Trismegistus Academy at COMPASS retreat centers, and through local events.
