"The purpose of the festival is to show the urgent need to SHAPE ALTERNATIVES NOW. Ways must be found because of the violent, acquisitive, alienated, industrial society which now poses a threat to survival. People have for centuries searched for equality and the right and ability to determine their own development. Individuals must accept responsibility for themselves. Personal happiness and equality, as much as a good society, depend upon self realisation. The most vital factor today is a sense of true identity. The starting point must be the "will to be the self which one truly is." - Jim Cairns, 1976 from the manifesto of Confest.
Returning from a weekend of nature and nurture in the Australian bush with dear friends. We pay our respects to the Wamba Wamba / Wemba Wemba people who are the first traditional owners of this land. Deep gratitude to this wildly inviting who's presence and aliveness has relaxed and healed so many. And now, onward we go with the daily work of being ones true self, realising deep happiness within and radiating it for all to enjoy.
JAI MOTHER EARTH!
