Art

Intuitions, inspirations, and the ineffable all emerge into existence through thoughts, ideas, and art. Before airplanes and helicopters, Leonardo da Vinci sketched all sorts of flying contraptions that, while not functional, paved the way for new thinkers to improve, surpass, and succeed.  At times art is not understood by contemporaries while in hindsight it can become evident that the manifestations of those who came before us intimated and imagined the world which becomes.

Symbiosis is proud to support and gather artist, sculptors, and creators of all kinds to bend our imaginations and cross the boundaries of what we believe is possible…because we understand ourselves as caretakers of the world for the generations that will follow in our footsteps.

Ceremony

Ceremony is a gift. It opens, it closes, it sustains, it greets, it lays to rest. Ceremony opens our eyes to the world which we see every day and reminds us of the world which we may not remember. Ceremony need not be solemn, nor sad, nor jovial, nor full of foof, but ceremony must be respected.

stacks_image_1953

Our ancestors who walked the earth long before us used ceremony to remind them of the past, which bound them to the present and set the stage for our future. Symbiosis holds ceremony dear to their heart and they hope that you will join them in celebration and appreciation of this great communal gift.

Healing

We all need healing at moments in our lives and for this Gathering they’d like to bring it to the forefront. Through body and energy work, workshops and daydreaming, communication with friends and strangers, dancing, yoga, breathing, and singing, healing is an essential part of life and an essential part of the Gathering. Healing is living and supporting life around us, and we are here with ten thousand arms!

Psychedelic Friendship Bingo 

A fortunate thing happened one day on a trip to the akashic record. A portal to the universal source of gameshow energy was bottled, aged, and opened up for you to drink in the delights of Bingo in the psychedelic goodness it was meant for. Come share in joy but do not mess with Bingo or you will face the condiments!
