Reawaken the sacred at Bowdoin Park in Wappingers Falls. Bonfires, drum circles, chanting, yoga, Reiki, and Native America traditions provide attendees with the means to reconnect with the earth. The festival focuses on ecospirituality, which brings together ancient spiritual teachings and environmental activism, and the connectedness of all living things. Performances by Native American group Spirit of Thunderheart, world music ensemble Heartwood, Chris Ruhe and the Howland Wolves, and dances from Anna Mayta and the D’Amby Project will be scattered throughout the festival’s four hours. The Sacred Earth Festival starts at 12pm on September 6. All funds raised will benefit the work of the Green Brain Initiative in poverty alleviation, environmental conservation, and sustainability.
