INTENTION is an opportunity to practice the universal art of community, deepen our ability to cooperate, open our hearts, and harness the gifts we each bring.

Intention is a five-day, four-night event where a village of all ages convenes to celebrate, decorate, share workshops, perform, dance, play, heal, rejuvenate, share meals and have fun. As the new year is a natural time for ritual, we honour our gifts of the passing year and focus our intentions for the coming one. Intention is a time and space for being authentically ourselves in a dynamic and inspirational community setting. We top it off with an amazing New Year's party to lovingly let go of the year past and embrace a new turn around the sun.

During our five days of Intention together, we share four nights of dance parties, live music jams, a talent show/cabaret, a tribal market, opening & closing circles, several workshops and other spontaneous flourishes.

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. Everyone is encouraged to find their own way to connect into the organizing flow and become involved in the production.

After Intention 15, at least $5/person (and more if we can afford it) will be donated to Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts in the Phillipines.
