Yemaya Festival 2017 Posted on February 5, 2017 (August 22, 2018) by Phil DATE: 21st – 24th April 2017 LOCATION: Fernihurst, VIC EVENT INFO Come to Yemaya Festival and enjoy four mesmerising days and three luminescent nights of sensory enchantment, showcasing a superb calibre of music production talent amidst an abundance of psychedelic art. Accompanying the indulgences will be our Yemaya Stage, Ashaba Temple, Grand Bazaar, Healing Sanctuary, Creation Station, Live Jam Space, Art Gallery, Performer’s Hub, Workshops, and Live Art Installations. Yemaya is a mother goddess, signifying home, fertility, love, and family. Her healing powers are carried in the great waters, her energy powerful during the ebb and flow of life challenges. Like water she represents both change and constancy, bringing forth life, protecting it, and changing it as is necessary. We invite you on this journey with us to explore the depths of her unknown waters… from the wonders of the day to the playful mysteries of the night we welcome you to submerge yourself within the underwater world we have created for your pleasure. Through a plethora of aural and visual delights we hope you can find your light amongst like-minded souls who wish to have a nurturing space in which to explore, create, connect, and dance. Together we can create a reality where growth, love, understanding, and happiness blossom. HEALING SANCTUARY Hosted by Tarquin Twinkle, this space is our hub for workshops across healing, learning, and relaxation throughout the days, and a sacred safe space at night. Dozens of workshops running throughout the event on Tai Chi, Yoga, Reiki, Meditation, Massage, Crystals, Tarot, Drumming, Hooping, and much more! CREATION STATION Coordinated by our close friends at Conscious Colour and stocked with a wide variety of art and craft supplies, this space is an outlet for creative expression throughout the duration of the festival.
