WHAT IS IGNITE?
Ignite is a meticulously curated convention that aims to spark conversation and action in five areas that affect our day to day lives: the political, the physical, the spiritual, the technological, and the artistic. The producers of Ignite have brought together some of the leading minds of this generation to address critical issues in our personal and communal development so that we, citizens of this Earth, can bring about a unified, caring, and conscious future.
Art is arguably the truest expression of the human spirit and we would be remiss if we did not include artistic expression in a convention that explores how we can reach a unified, caring, and conscious future. Building on Laguna Beach's incredibly supportive artistic community, Ignite aims to inspire to connect to your spirit through the careful selection and presentation of featured artists.
Regardless of your religious beliefs, spirituality is widely recognized as an important aspect to a balanced individual. Focusing on spiritual practices devoid of dogma, Ignite aims to put you in touch with your truest self through guided meditations and group prayer.
With the tumultuous political climate of 2016 behind us, we must now address how we, as a country, can reconcile a deep divide in our cultural priorities. With issues spanning voter disenfranchisement to corporate influence in our political system, Ignite provides conversation surrounding the many issues afflicting our communities and invites you to participate in finding a solution.
As science continues to find new manners in which we affect our environment and in which our environment affects us, the wealth of information about how to best care for our bodies may sometimes prove overwhelming. Ignite brings leaders in yoga, exercise, and nutrition together to discuss how you can best care for your body to stay healthy and active in a constantly moving world.
Technology has increasingly become a necessary part of modern life and advances in interactive technologies such as augmented and virtual reality are already being used in a myriad of ways from entertainment to transformation. Ignite opens the discussion about how these emergent technologies can aid in informing, unifying, and transforming people.
