Workshop(s): A Shamanic Ecstatic Contemplative Journey of Movement, Music and Creative Play (All Levels): Pig Stage
Friday 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Michael Brant DeMaria, PhD, life changed 25 years ago when he underwent a life changing lament in the wild, guided by a native elder without food or water which provided a profound healing, a course correction and gave him a vision for his life. It is his life mission to help guide others to the ever flowing spring of compassionate wisdom and profound creative inspiration, that lies at the edge of life and death, night and day, joy and sorrow, and creativity and madness. His delivery systems for his soul work include integrative psychology, poetry, sound healing artistry, yoga, meditation and above all wild improvisational dance. His music is heard by over 250,000 people a week across the world, garnering him four Grammy® nominations, 8 ZMR awards, 6 #1 albums, a Native American Music Award and appearing on the Grammy Winning album, All About Bullies Big and Small. He is also a Sounds True recording artist with his music being featured on projects with Eckhart Tolle, Mark Nepo and Noah Levine. He is the author of 4 books, 3 of which were bestsellers, and is the Creator and Author of the Peace Within Process for Integrative Wellness. His newest book of poetry When All is Lost: Finding Heart in The Dark and Souling: Weaving, Birthing and Tending a Soulful Life are due out in 2018 and 2019 respectively.
