Pictures and info about Sentient Rhythms and Vernon Foster at the 3D Fest 2010
Marlene and I stopped by Watson lake to check out the dance floor and take a few pictures of the site where the 3D Fest will be happening this weekend:
This is the pavilion we will be dancing in on Saturday evening:
Vernon Foster will be facilitating a Spirit Dance at 7:00, that incorporates blindfolds and electronic beats into a shamanic dance and meditation. Then we’ll have a brief circle at 8:30 with Vernon, and then go right into our dance until 10:00. This will happen at the pavilion (above) on Saturday and at the same times in the tent on Sunday. We are expecting this to be a very deep journey!

A few more notes about this event:
For those with kids: Their will be a play area on site!
We did notice some Mosquito’s. We’ll use some natural repellent around the dance floor, but it might be a good idea to bring long sleeves and pants.
There will be some donation required for Vernon’s Spirit dance, we’re not sure exactly what, but for those of you who are wanting to go all the way down the rabbit hole, I think it’ll be worth it!
Sentient Rhythms will be free for everyone who has payed admission or is volunteering.
We could still use more tapestries, sage and decorations for the dance floor, as we want to make the dance floor as sacred a space as we can.
As for as we know their are still openings for volunteers, so if you’d rather help then pay full price the application is here.
