Lovelight Yoga and Arts Festival, and Krishna Das, Scheduled for September

Apr 30, 2018 09:09AM
The Lovelight Yoga and Arts Festival is back and promises to spread love and yoga for a third amazing season. This year, the nationally recognized festival will be held September 21 to 24, at the Pearl Center, in Reisterstown, Maryland. Also new to this festival this year is the opportunity to learn a new skill or get a professional certification in a healing art at the Lovelight Learning Lab.

Krishna Das leads a list of acclaimed headliners from the worlds of music, yoga and art. This appearance will be the only outdoor festival performance on the East Coast for Krishna Das, the Grammy-nominated kirtan artist. There will be something for everyone at this family-friendly gathering.

Much of the festival takes place in Villages, each with a specific theme. In the Yoga Village, teachers in all styles and varieties of yoga will offer classes. In the Visionary Village, participants will engage in the conscious co-creation of a transformational community, built on the self-expression, empowered dialog, alternate economics, eco-activism and connection to our collective roots. In the Healing Village, ancient and modern healing and transformational techniques including massage, reiki, ayurveda and reflexology will provide opportunities for the nurturing of the body through deep relaxation and energy work.

Families will have their own Children’s Village to enjoy the festival as a family event with expanded age-appropriate programming for all-ages. In the Faerie Village, children of all ages will find the magical and fantastic realms of the imagination, and appreciation of the spirit of Earth.

The venue this year is the Pearlstone Center, an environmentally sustainable conference center brings people to the land, so they can understand and value the connection between humans and our Earth. The Center grows its own organic food on-site and then serves it in true farm-to-table fashion.
