When most people hear the word “festival,” they immediately associate it with “music.” And while that is an important aspect of many fests, including Lucidity, there are several other features that make Lucidity Festival THE unique retreat for the transformational community. Based on the principle of awakening our dreams as a community, Lucidity has built its foundation upon 7 core values, those being Participation and Immersion in the Artistic Process, Personal Growth and Global Healing, Awake and Aware Consciousness, Environmental and Social Responsibility, Family Fun and Creative Play, Communal Reciprocity, and Transparency. In order to help attendees reach their desired goals of transformation in well-being and consciousness, Lucidity brings together some of the most intuitive and intelligent healers around. Below is a list of eight different forms of healing that will be offered at the festival, located in the I AM HEALING Sanctuary.
