Anyway, what is BOOM? Their tagline is that it's ''a playground for a potential future''. Thousands of people from all over the world get together every other year to camp out and trance out for one week in the middle of nature under the August Full Moon. Lunatics, I know. But I love it. I'm really excited about the near limitless amount of workshops taking place this year at BOOM. Below are some of my favorite Boom Festival workshop and event excerpts from their website: http://boomfestival.org/boom2012/. Check them out.
Workshops at the Healing Area allow us to explore and experience unique and powerful therapies in a safe environment with experienced professionals that contribute to the Boom from a space of love.
There will be daily practices, sound journeys, ceremonies, and a number of different types of bodywork supporting inner growth and transformation. Workshops at the Healing Area embrace a variety of traditions of healing. They demonstrate how we each have our unique way of reach-ing the same destination, of enriching our transformation.
They also represent the distinct approaches of various traditions; including daily groups of dif-ferent styles of centring practices – from Kundalini and Asthtanga, to Hatha yoga and from Aqua Tai Chi to QiGong.
Alchemical journeys are experienced with different types of meditation. We also recall the for-gotten language of the body with cellular consciousness: an ancient Tibetan technique.
In the Healing Area there is the possibility to experience a daily Temazcal, representing the uterus of Mother Earth, which takes us back to the womb as we open ourselves to the process of dying and being reborn.
