Om Summer Solstice Festival - June 21 - 23, 2002

This is an invitation for all dreamers, dancers, musicians, artists, activists, educators and healers to converge and celebrate their shared passions. This summer solstice the Om community will gather for its fifth year, united by a dedication to bettering our planet and finding balance, harmony and peace. Come join us as our collective energy vibrates to a magical frequency. WELCOME OM!

Om will take place in the beautiful outdoors of rural southern Ontario, Canada. Come prepared for a weekend camping experience like no other, featuring: hundreds of DJs and live performances, creative art explosions of all types, activating and empowering workshops, marketplace, free community kitchen, and much more. We invite you to participate. Bring your friends and ideas and share a smile with us, inspiring those around you to do the same. The Om Festival has evolved alongside the strong conscious community that fosters it. We thank all of you who have supported the festival over the years, and we we encourage you to get involved once again. Om could not happen without your support.

If you are interested in becoming an Om volunteer, please contact: volunteer@omfestival.ca. To help promote in your area, please contact: promotion@omfestival.ca. If you would like to co-ordinate a bus from your area to the festival, let us know so we can help: info@omfestival.ca.

The location is is a beautiful site on privately-owned land in Killaloe, Ontario (just north of Bancroft, very close to last year's location). Specific directions and map will be posted in the location section by June 1, 2002. Thanks for your patience.

Posted:Thanks Bethany, but here's the thing. I'm working on Friday until 5:00. I can for certain get a ride down but I don't know if I can get the day off. I probably shouldn't have asked until I knew that or not.

Thanks anyway, though, and I may take you up on that later, if it's still possible. Can't wait to meet your friends!

Posted:Hey guys,

Missastrofunklove, its great that you've got the info out on OM Fest - its sure to be an experience of experiences.

Paddy, Linda and I are going with Kan'Nal. We're still trying to figure travel out - and may also be leaving on the Friday, but will keep you in mind and let you know either way.

We'd love to have you dance with Linda during Kan'Nal's performance - into it??

If anyone is interested you can check out Kan'Nal's website - www.acoustictrance.com
it needs some help, but will give you a gist of the music and style.

xx Karen
