Deeper Roots and Taller Than Ever

The roots of the Enchanted Forest Gathering sprout from the seeds of infinite potential within all of us. Seeds that were firmly planted and lovingly nurtured on the dance floor. The intention of EFG has always been to serve as a catalyst to nurture that potential into fruition. To host an intimate gathering whereupon activated individuals can realize a community that supports each of us as we learn, love, create and grow. The idea seemed to tap a communal nerve too. What started six years ago with just over two hundred participants has blossomed and branched out to the tune of 3,000 attendees. The rapid growth speaks volumes to the unique offerings EFG has cultivated since its inception. It also reflects a growing conscious positive movement where seemingly ordinary people are equipping themselves with the skills and experience to make extraordinary changes.

Within the trees of the Enchanted Forest Gathering awaits a collective of innovative micro-environments and peak experiences, showcased by interactive spaces including The Nectar Temple – a next level healing area, the late night tea lounge that features live jazz trios, and the Crystal Dome – an amalgamation of an incredible variety of healing and wondrous stones collected from around the world. Additionally, revelers may find their journey at the Enchanted Forest Gathering leads them to a late night comedy stage or the visionary art studio, which features live painters from around the world. In the past these elements have been a staple of Enchanted Forest Gathering, so as we continue to grow we’ll be looking to enrich these experiences and deepen our roots in the spaces that have come to mean so much to us.

At the heart of The Enchanted Forest Gathering is a dedication to cultivating a sustainable community, one driven by a passion with purpose. As part of continued efforts to support and lead the community, Enchanted Forest Gathering plays host to a bold educational forum throughout the day including four types of workshop zones providing guests an opportunity to broaden their horizons in topics like Spirituality & Science, Nourishment & Nutrition, Sexuality & Relationships and Permaculture & Ancestral Arts. Many who come here will find healing and encouragement. Others will forge friendships to last a lifetime. You may even leave with a better sense of who you are. Whatever the outcome our hope is that by spending time together we can activate more creativity and passion in each other to unleash the magic that’s born when we come together into a few shared efforts to build a better tomorrow.
