After a two year hiatus, Symbiosis Events has reincarnated its revered Symbiosis Gathering for Summer 2012 in a monumental way. Held on Native American land in Pyramid Lake, Nevada – in the vicinity of the famed Black Rock Desert that is the perpetual home of Burning Man – during a full solar eclipse, the gathering is going to be the west coast festival of the summer to attend in many ways. With the musical lineup including but certainly not limited to Little Dragon, Beats Antique, Tipper, Welder, Emancipator, Entheogenic, Opiuo, Random Rab, Bluetech, Gaudi, PaNTyRAiD, David Starfire, Govinda, Androcell, Heyoka, Kalya Scintilla, Kaminanda, and Thriftworks, the gathering truly promises to be one for the ages – helping conclude this one and whisk us gracefully into the next.
Symbiosis Events believes in the healing, transformative potential of intentional gatherings. The crew has dedicated their lives to facilitating these opportunities for collective evolution. The eclipse that will be occurring during the event is the culmination of all that has been learned along the way.
Symbiosis‘ intention is for this to be a time when we get to taste the village life we all feel missing from our lives, sharing food, song, prayer, dance, art, performance, and the day-to-day beauty of being alive. Focused around a central elemental altar, where offerings and ceremonies will occur throughout the gathering, there is a sacred container being collectively created and held, in collaboration with the Native peoples who have honored us with the use of their land. Every facet of this gathering is an opportunity for the work, whether it be on dancefloor, in the skill shares, gathering in ritual or connecting with the land and each other. None of us know exactly what these times hold, but we do know that when we enter this moment together, with real intentions for global healing and awakening, we can participate in these cosmic cycles in the best possible way.
