SUMMER INTENTION - Intention 19.5 June 29th - July 2nd, 2018
Summer Intention is the summer camp-out version of the famous Intention retreat. This is a four day, three night event where a village of all ages convenes to celebrate, share, workshop, perform, dance, play, heal, connect, share meals, and have fun. Intention is a time and space for being authentically ourselves in a dynamic, loving and inspirational community setting.
Meals are provided throughout the weekend as part of your ticket. Our excellent kitchen pod will be creating delicious, healthy vegetarian meals for our culinary delight!
Intention incorporates dance parties, kids play space, workshops, rituals, tribal market, yoga, art, DIY culture, as well as shared meal times and spontaneous fun. Intention is a warm, wonderful and special event that many return to every year to re-create a transformational container, one that continues to weave a vibrant community together every event.

Ticket prices include all workshops, camping, parking and meals for the weekend.
All three ticket tiers will go on sale at the same time. We ask those people with a high enough income to buy higher priced tickets, so that lower priced tickets can go to those who really need them. This is an honour system, and everyone can choose the price they feel they can best afford (until the lower priced tickets run out.)
Tickets are refundable until June 15th. From June 15th to 22nd we will allow ticket transfers. No refunds or transfers after June 22nd.
We have booked a confirmed, beautiful, private venue near Roberts Creek on the Sunshine Coast. The exact location and directions will be sent to registrants a few days before the event.
This event takes place on the traditional, unceded and illegally occupied territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the shíshálh (Sechelt) Nation. We always strive to leave no trace, to protect the land where we gather and to invite awareness of the history of this land. For more details see: http://www.intentiongathering.org/summer_19_5/info_and_location
As part of our event co-creation, we are asking all participants to sign up for a shift to complete their registration. This may include welcoming people at the gate, helping with decor, cooking for your friends in the kitchen, being a calm presence at peer support, facilitating a game in the Kid's zone or helping to make sure we leave the land as beautiful as it was when we arrived. You can choose which parts of the event you are stoked to support.
Intention will feature a wide variety of electronic music acts and DJs from across BC and spanning many different genres. Live music acts are also welcome.
If you would like to DJ or perform live, please check back soon for a link to our online application form.
Intention is an opportunity for individuals to share skills, magic and love with the community. This year, we hope to have many talented folks stepping up to offer their gifts at the gathering in the form of workshops. Every attendee at Intention is invited to give a workshop on whatever topic they desire.
Last year's workshops included: Forest Therapy Walk, Empathy and Vulnerability, Chakra Yoga Meditation, Community Singing Circle, Faerie School, Exploring Theatre and many more.
Contact workshops[at]intentiongathering[dot]org for more info. Online application form is at http://www.intentiongathering.org/summer_19_5/workshops
Meals provided will be vegetarian and gluten-free*, with vegan options. Please feel free to bring your own scrumptious food, especially if you have special dietary requirements, please bring whatever you need for that. There's a lot of opportunity to help with preparation, cooking, and cleaning, so don't be shy to pitch in! =)
*Though all meals are planned as gluten-free, they may not meet the standards required for celiacs or people with severe intolerances. If you have any questions, please contact kitchen[at]intentiongathering[dot]org
Intention consciously fosters a culture of consent. We want everyone to feel comfortable and respected at our events. If you’re unsure about an interaction or unsure if you have consent, please remember to ask first. Remember, only an ongoing positive, enthusiastic response means Yes! When consent is respected, we feel more free to be fully ourselves. If you have feedback about consent culture, want to facilitate a consent workshop or discussion or want to be a part of the Consent Pod, contact consent[at]intentiongathering[dot]org .
Our Tribal Market plans to be bustling with unique vendors. These artisans will be bringing one of a kind pieces, handcrafted goodies, feathery goodness and costume pieces galore for your purchase. You’re sure to find a thing or two to compliment your costumes, fill your tummy or soothe your skin. So plan on bringing SOME CASH to spend on these wonderful creations!
DECOR & ART INSTALLATIONS
Art & decor are at the very core of every festival. They create a fun landscape or visual candy for us to explore and appreciate. If you have the desire to share your art with the community, please contact decor[at]intentiongathering[dot]org
BRING YOUR SACRED ITEMS to add to the various altars which will be created throughout the event space.
We will have an opening circle to meet each other and become familiar with the land and with the Intention community and a closing circle to acknowledge our connections and conclude the event, and we highly recommend everyone attend both. If you are interested in contributing to this, or being a part of the Ritual Pod, or just looking for more information contact ritual[at]intentiongathering[dot]org
Everyone is encouraged to find their own way to connect into the festival flow and become involved in the daily life, music and general production of the event.

Intention is co-creative and participant-driven. We share our personal gifts and learn from the community. It is an opportunity to work together with old friends and new faces to create a safe container for a rich exploration of music, art, self-expression and creativity. We are always looking for volunteers to help with organizing and creation. If you would like to be involved in the organization process, please contact contact the org team at info[at]intentiongathering[dot]org
YAY SUMMER INTENTION ♥
