Neurosculpting® Yoga - Kiefer Avi
with musical accompaniment by Alex Acerra and Arden Bring!

Neurosculpting® Yoga was born out of the practice of Neurosculpting®, which focuses on meditative ways to re-align the internal wiring of the right and left brain with the intention of delivering us from the limbic Fight or Flight response of our left hemisphere, to the creativity of our right. Through guided visualizations, and deep breathing practices, participants drop into their internal landscape taking the position of the observer on this journey through ingrained patterns and posture. By establishing an energetic grounding cord to tether us back from astral asanas, students will gain new perspective on the forces that influence their lives, while honing the tools necessary to change them. By re-writing our own belief systems, and integrating these changes into our bodies through yogic movements, we will set the stage for change and growth in the nurturing environment of each others company. Feel free to come and experience you, in the authentic power of presence by which we can learn to sculpt our reality.

MomoBUTOH Dance Co PERFORMANCE

A visceral voyage through the inner and outer landscapes and polarities that can break us and make us who we are. Like the raging floods, whirling tornadoes, rumbling fires and quaking earth, our bodies and souls also dance with these forces of change. How can we locate peace within the storm?

With intimacy and honesty this premiere of “Alchemy of Opposites” spontaneously reveals the alchemy between essences of our most exquisite, delicious, and destructive human natures. Featuring live soundscape by Bobby Levy of Houston and Kait Chenowith of Costa Rica and BUTOH dance by Odile Nicole of New Orleans, Norianna Diesel of Salt Lake City and Maureen Momo Freehill of Seattle.

Lulacruza
Lulacruza is an electronic folk duo operating at Unknownthe junction of the hypermodern and the ancient. Their music weaves together hypnotic female singing, South American folk instruments and electronic processing, while channeling pulsating waves from the source of creation. Lulacruza combines songs, soundscapes and dance music with astonishing ease. In their live sets, they process and sample acoustic instruments, moving from tribal beats and songs smudged with electronic textures, to beautiful drones and chants. Treating sound almost like a malleable plastic material, Lulacruza creates live and organic sonic spaces. Their music has the power to induce intense trance-like states, invoking otherworldly nature spirits and activating the resonant frequencies of the human body. Lulacruza is made up of Alejandra Ortiz (Colombia) and Luis Maurette (Argentina). Alejandra is an extraordinary songbird and plays the Colombian cuatro and percussion. Luis Maurette complements with electronic processing and sequencing, as well as percussion and charango.

Patrick Latella
With over 20 years as a professional musician under his belt, Patrick Latella continues an ever-expanding exploration on the guitar through rhythmic, melodic and harmonic jam-rock, jazz-fusion, funk and improvisation to acoustic chamber, neo-classical and ambient. It was by playing in school orchestra that he developed his understanding and appreciation of ensemble based music where compounding and intertwining musical ideas combine to make a sound greater than the sum of its parts. His compositions exhibit this appreciation with multiple melodic and rhythmic themes layering to form soundscapes deep and complex, yet resonating and inviting to the listener. With over 1000 live shows in multiple ensembles, from electric fusion bands with 14 members to 6 piece power jam-rock bands, to new-grass outfits to duos to solo work, Patrick has turned heads and amazed and delighted crowds of all ages.

Keep Yourself in The Groove: Health and Wellness at Summer Music Festivals - Jason Blumen
Jason Blumen - Keep Yourself in The Groove: Informational Workshop on All Aspects of Health and Wellness at Summer Music Festivals

The workshop will be an open roundtable discussion hosted by Groove Medical Services with special guests including Aspenroots counselors specializing in psychotropics and research, MD's with specialization in Wilderness and Emergency Medicine, Environmental experts, and Chef Ronin specializing in healthy eating. All panel experts have extensive personal knowledge of the music festival scene. Discussions will include environment (heat, cold, dehydration, sun exposure), health (eating, drinking water, sleeping, psychological, don't mix substances and more, knowing where to get help). Wellness (being a good neighbor/ citizen/ friend and host to the environment and how to last 4 days without getting into trouble). GMS believes that flexible, open-minded education and discussion provides options for every type of person. The wellness workshop series is much more dynamic than a classroom setting with instructor(s). The workshop is about joining in partnerships, sharing experiences, and cohesive education. This workshop format requires open, non-judgmental communication and the blending of Eastern, Western, Traditional and Non-Traditional Medicinal philosophies. For those people interested in becoming more aware of how to maintain and improve health and wellness inside and outside of the festival world these workshops are an unforgettable and worthwhile experience.

The Reminders
The ReMINDers are a rare and remarkable musical duo seamlessly blending soulful sounds and roots music with insightful messages and thoughtful lyrics. The group consists of Brussels-born emcee Big Samir and Queens-born emcee/vocalist Aja Black, a collective creative force that’s hard to beat. Big Samir weaves intricate rhythmic patterns with a bilingual French/English flow, displaying his street-smart credibility in both his lyrics and cool demeanor. This is beautifully complimented by Aja Black’s confident delivery, diverse cadences, and unique vocal stylings. The two have an undeniable magical chemistry as they share more than lyrical abilities and stages; the couple shares a partnership in both music and life as Samir and Aja have been married for almost a decade. Releasing their debut album ‘Recollect’ in 2008 and their latest “Born Champions” in 2012, the ReMINDers have been recognized and applauded for their work internationally through concerts, tours, music awards, TV and radio appearances, and their incredible and dedicated fan base. Having shared the stage with artists such as Les Nubians, Snoop Dogg, Fishbone, Barrington Levy, Nas, Mos Def, Big Boi, KRS-One, Rakim, K’Naan, and others, the ReMINDers have established a firm place in today’s ever-evolving music scene, garnering international acclaim while paving a path all their own. Beyond performances and appearances, the duo is constantly and actively engaged with community organizations, schools, and universities delivering workshops, talks, and specially catered performances. More than a shade of the same color that we see time and time again, The ReMINDers transcend bounds of what is expected. Their stage presence and high energy shows leave crowds in awe the world over, allowing the duo to uplift all.

As we flow on our mats, conquer our fears, and celebrate our strength, we learn to ride the ups and downs of life with more grace and ease. Even the music of the class, specifically chosen for it’s elemental vibration, will connect us together in a way that words cannot.
All of these elements, and more, will come together for us in a class experience that will weave itself into a complex and beautiful tapestry that becomes the fabric of our LIVING yoga, off and on the mat.
All-levels welcome!
Music speaks directly to Carole’s heart and soul, it can make her smile and it can make her weep. She’s a firm believer that yoga + music go together like peanut butter + chocolate! There’s no better combination on the planet!
According to Carole, “yoga is a LIVING and ever expanding practice, that changes according to what is needed for the evolution of that particular soul. As we align our bodies in poses, what we are really doing is aligning ourselves with our passions, purpose, and life’s mission. My hope is that yoga unites your heart and soul, and that your mind and body become open the the vast experiences that life has to offer.”

Dive into Deep Play - Damian Leuthold
Turn on. Tune in. Drop in.
Enter the world of Deep Play where we:
– turn on our vitality and curiosity
– tune in to relationship (with self, other, group, and world)
– drop in to our body (our head, heart, and gut)

In deep play we build relationship and build capacity. In deep play we meet the world with full resource and then go toward the unknown and possibly uncomfortable. In deep play we learn to behave differently and meet the world with more freedom and choice.
You can develop new behavior by finding freedom from compulsion to follow old patterns. Do this by investigating your inner world to discover what is driving those patterns. Those drives live somewhere in your body, and somewhere in your sensations, perceptions, and emotions. Somewhere below your normal conscious awareness.
We will introduce to many practices from the somatic and relational realms which are nourishing and fun AND give you the opportunity to do that discover yourself, make the unconscious conscious and grow beyond previous conditioning.

Enter into Deep Play and find yourself in freedom!

Ginny & the Bridgeburners

We of Ginny & the Bridge Burners would love to tell you all about our most humble of beginnings. Unfortunately, We of Ginny and the Bridge Burners are very, very, rarely humble. Half of the band met the way most wayward artist boys in an overly moneyed town do, kindred, broke, and scrounging for drugs. The rest of us fell into step along the way, one inebriated vocalist stumbling vaguely in the direction of a childhood dream, and one childish drummer stumbling dreamily in the direction of free beer.

Lo! We of Ginny and the Bridge Burners were not so much born, as smooshed together by vicissitude and a mutual appreciation for melodious hijinks.

Ayla Nereo (solo)
Ayla Nereo’s voice hits straight to the heart. With an array of loop-pedals by her side, she layers vocal melodies into majestic, sweeping harmonies and weaves magical threads of guitar, kalimba, piano, and percussion into each live performance. Her lucid storytelling and lyrical imagery are water for the thirsty soul; sounds embodying the many folds of our own selves. Ayla’s music is both timeless and modern; circle songs and roots music meet folktronica. Crafting an immersive soundscape we can rest in, her gentle intention guides us into a more open and receptive state. Each performance is a journey: an inspired, wondrous experience that holds you by the heart and doesn’t let go.

Mike Love
Mike Love has played in many live bands, doing his first club gig at age 16, and having his first solo gig 5 years ago. Hesitant to do it at first, after a little while he began to like the freedom of performing, and also the accountability. If it didn’t sound good or the timing was off or the pitch was flat, there was no one else to blame. It really made him reevaluate himself as a musician. After a turning point, Mike Love started thinking of new creative ways to make long shows interesting with only one musician on stage. He started to use a loop pedal to record loops live. Beatboxing, basslines, rhythm parts, harmonies, whatever needed to be done to keep it interesting and unique, while staying true to himself and his musical message. Over the years, Mike Love has been blessed to share the stage with many artists he’s admired and looked up to, including Groundation, Steel Pulse, Dave Matthews, Jack Johnson and many more. He’s had the pleasure of working directly with musicians whom he holds in the highest regard, Paula Fuga, Jah Gumby of Father Psalms Studios, Bambu Station, Ooklah the Moc, John Cruz, Tavana and many others.

Her unvarnished, throaty vocals deliver a sound that comes from living on the edge, combining primal rhythms with technology; blending drumming and synthesizer to create raw elements with unhurried bass lines.  Sugar Kayne embodies the exotic bohemian, subverting the main stream while she emerges as a cutting edge innovator in music.

Jaden’s band is comprised of herself on lead guitar and vocals, Will Trask on drums, percussion and backing vocals, and Eric Luba on left-hand bass, keys and backing vocals. Having formed in late 2014, the band discovered a common love and joy of creating music during a band-basement jam that, upon playing for the first time, stretched six hours into the night. Subsequent days of hours-long jamming and writing cemented what is now the Jaden Carlson Band, and their enthusiasm for playing together radiates throughout every venue they play. In their short time as a musical unit, the Jaden Carlson Band has already headlined many theaters, performed on the main stage of major festivals, supported national touring artists (Anders Osborne and Robert Cray), toured throughout many states, and released their own album. These three talented musicians bring a wealth of musical knowledge, experience and prowess to each performance, and an irresisitable and dynamic energy that has their audiences begging for more. Jaden has shared the stage with many notable artists including Umphrey’s McGee, Michael Franti and Spearhead, The Revivalists, Devon Allman, Dumpstaphunk, Dopapod, Tauk, Roosevelt Collier, John Popper and Blues Traveler, Groundation, and many others.

ill-esha
For many years ill-esha has weathered the dynamic, often ephemeral soundscape of Electronic music, simply by being an original. “I’m not really an observer. I’m very much a participant and a creator,” self-describes the Vancouver, British Columbia-born artist, songwriter, producer, and DJ. “Everything I do in my life, it quickly becomes way more than a hobby.” From growing up in the EDM hotbed of the Pacific Northwest, attending raves in her teens, Ill-esha accelerated her musical passions to the fullest. “First I wanted to be part of this culture as a DJ, doing vocals and curating music. After that, I also needed to participate in the music I was playing,” referring to her progression as a producer and headlining performer. “I’ve just been moving one step up at a time over the years, into being this completely original show.”
Although Ill-esha’s professional career dates back to the late 90s, the Denver, Colorado-based artist asserts that her recent evolution in music greatly contrasts with her initial work. Currently immersed in Future-Bass, Ill-esha’s music captivated audiences in 2013, tied to three separate tours, alongside Bassnectar, Beats Antique, and Big Gigantic.

Turkuaz
Credible bios are supposed to be objective and not full of superlatives and hyperbole, but it’s hard to avoid gushing when the subject is a funk army of multi-instrumentals and singers that is part freight train and part tyrannosaurus rex, who—even on an off night—can blow away a room on the basis of sheer physics alone. That’s one way to describe Turkuaz, but it doesn’t address the music. In this regard, as with any band, influences are everything. One cannot escape them as one seeks to carve out a unique sound for themselves. Still, there are so many benefits to having Sly & The Family Stone, Rick James, Parliament and Bohannon in your record collection. With this as the basis for a recipe, Turkuaz adds healthy doses of jittery, world-pop-power groove—reminiscent of Remain In Light era Talking Heads—and a passion for Motown and R&B, resulting in a refreshing twist on the funk idiom.

They have been on headlining tours from California to Virginia, on support tours opening multiple nights for the likes of Tedeschi Trucks Band, Lake Street Dive, and Hard Working Americans, and have been incessantly playing their home turf in the Rocky Mountains when in between coasts. Founded by Scott Lane and Jonathan Meadows in Richmond, VA, The Congress brings notions of genuine musicianship and inventive songwriting to a modern world of dubious, cosmetic sound. Anchored by Jonathan’s throw-back, soul tenor vocals and Scott’s immersive guitar licks, The Congress is a band of real musicians, with real instruments, playing real music. Keyboardist Chris “Bernie” Speasmaker masterfully accents each tune with everything from throaty Leslie riffs and New Orleans dixiecrat piano to pounding electro-funk lines. Denver native and conservatory-trained badass Mark Levy holds down the drums with elegant precision and explosive dynamism. Their brand of Rock & Roll is neither nostalgic nor progressive; It occupies the space between vintage sounds and the hyperbolic cynicism of our post-modern world.

The Polish Ambassador
For the Polish Ambassador project, born on the richly-colored streets of Chicago and San Francisco, infectious melody is paramount. However, this never overshadows the depth and harmonic complexity that have made the Ambassador a favorite amongst festival curators and beat aficionados worldwide. Over the course of 6 years, his sound has dipped and swirled through a staggering range of styles, with each album exploring uncharted sonic territory. Warm, analogue dreamwave; mind-altering glitch; world-infused groove; bass-fueled breaks; sexified down-tempo; electric lullabies; and psy-fi funk are just a few of the genres that have poured from the Ambassador’s soul into earbuds and ghetto-blasters across the galaxy. Despite the political connotations of his name, the Ambassador is not a political partisan. Rather, he is a diplomat for a new paradigm rooted in creative joy, radical self-expression, and ecological principles. As part of this mission, the Ambassador has committed to carbon-neutral touring, instigating exploratory dance, and igniting fan participation.

Proper Motion
Proper Motion was created to take that which we love most about music and reawaken it with the ever-expanding possibilities of EDM. With a vibrant foundation in the passionate sounds of classic soul, producers Noah Marion and Harrison Watkins have ventured to create a sound that is both cutting-edge and nostalgic.
Strong dedication to electronic production and a rich background in musical composition and performance spurred Marion and Watkins to create Proper Motion in Boulder, Colorado in 2011. From the beginning, the product was an exciting and heartfelt sound that has since come to be called FutureSoul. It is based on the idea that in this quickly changing, brave new future of EDM, there will always be the human core, exemplified here through soul music, that creates an emotional bond with what we hear, feel, and do.
Since its genesis, Proper Motion has earned themselves loyal followings in a number of markets, toured throughout the Southeast and the Rocky Mountains, and shared the stage with incredibly talented artists like Break Science, GRIZ, Chali 2na, PANTyRAiD, Big Gigantic, Lotus, Beats Antique, and many more. 2014 will bring the release of their new EP, titled “At Long Last”, along with a number of shows in both new and established markets. With optimism and feverous dedication, the duo takes a step forward into the latest chapter of Proper Motion.

Peace Qigong

How do we practice residing in our center in the midst of reaching out? How do we harmonize the infinite beautiful energies around us with our own multiplicity? What can we do to cultivate tranquility and quiescence within, so that we may move through life's dynamic changes with a sense of being on a path of peace?

I would like to teach peace qigong as a method to provide participants an experience of embodied knowing that responds to the inquiries above. Qigong is a holistic practice that aligns mind, breath, and movement to restore vitality and clarity. Peace qigong is a form that will support Arise as a community brought together through shared intention, vision, and compassion. It includes a guided visualization that imagines each person's heartbeat connected to the heartbeat of mother earth, connected to the heartbeat of all living beings. Participants will both reach out to feel connection energetically in the field, and draw in to harmonize that energy internally. This course will be appropriate for practitioners of all levels, including those who have never done qigong before. Teaching, questions and answers are possible, but practice that remains focused on direct experience without rational analysis may be more appropriate based on the desires of the group.


Workshop Description: Peace is within us, each and every moment. Please join me for an embodied experience that restores vitality, clarity, and peace through movement, visualization, and breath. Qigong is a simple practice of moving energy intentionally throughout your body and beyond, and requires no previous experience. In peace qigong, you will sense your heartbeat connected to the heartbeat of mother earth, resonating with the heartbeat of all living beings. As you are guided through this form, you will experience harmonization of energies within and around you. This gentle method will help you feel centered and clear, and support our Arise experience by enhancing and uniting our shared intention, vision, and compassion.



Bio: Kathleen McGoey is on an experiential journey in the field of conflict transformation. She currently works as a restorative justice facilitator in Longmont, CO, where she integrates her intuitive practices into the traditional justice system, giving youth and adults the opportunity to take responsibility for harms they’ve caused, and empowering them to make things right. Kathleen believes in human beings’ natural resonance with peace, and would like to help others learn how to approach and address conflict as a platform for transformation. She describes much of her personal journey and dance with peace in a book called Harmonizing Heavens and Earth, A Daoist Shamanic Approach to Peacework.

The Haunted Windchimes
The Haunted Windchimes draws from traditional folk and American roots music. The songs have a vintage quality, as if they might have been written yesterday or 75 years ago. Grounded in honeyed harmonies and spirited pickin’, it lies in a nowhere land between distinct styles: It’s not quite bluegrass or blues or country. Still, there are elements of all those in songs that paint pictures of empty train stations and nights of passing a jug of moonshine around. It’s the vocal harmonies that really set them apart, a three-headed juggernaut of Desirae Garcia (ukulele), Chela Lujan (banjo) and Inaiah Lujan (guitar). “When their voices blend, it is nothing short of beautiful,” writes Bill Reed of The Colorado Springs Gazette. The sound is often moody and melancholy, but it is always deeply affecting. That sound is embroidered by the instrumental mastery of Mike Clark (harmonica, guitar and mandolin).

Bodymind Belly Dance

Workshop Description: Body-mind Belly Dance: Enhance your practice, improvisation and choreography.  Basic technique in Belly dance is suggested but not required. This workshop is for dancers who are curious about deepening their connection to their dance through the experience of their bodies. Body-Mind Centering offers an “in” to understanding  the “minds” of the body systems and their roles in our expression and movement.  Combine BMC with Belly dance, rest into your body’s expression, and find new tools for your dance practice. Please wear clothes comfortable for movement both on the ground and standing.

What systems will we explore?

Organs:  For sensing weight, fluidity, fullness of presence and support for movement.

Bones: The directionality and structure of the skeletal system supports dynamic use of space and movement.  

Endocrine system: The endocrine system is indicated in emotional experience and expression. Does it drive or support expression? Touching into the glands of the endocrine system can support the range of feeling in your dance.


with Andrea Bullard & Rachel Prairie

Bio: Andrea believes that dancing can be many things:  a way to escape, a way to express, to be aware and to arrive.  Embodiment has been her lifelong study and path. Andrea received her MA in Somatic Psychotherapy with a Dance Therapy focus from Naropa University. Her background in dance ranges from Ballet to contemporary and of course Belly dance. Andrea is currently a Somanaut with The Brook Institute and Bodymind Somanautics.

Liberation of Impermanence - Laura Chiraya Fox
Laura Chiraya Fox - Liberation of Impermanence

The Path to “home” includes the realization of our True Self, our Sat Nam, our true divine nature. It is in feeling, thinking and believing that we are “other” than divine, or that we are limited bodies, that we get “caught up” in struggle, strife and cycles of suffering. Chiraya is in service to this awakening, and offers these transmissions with a single pointed focus and desire to assist in the liberation from cycles of pain and misunderstanding to open the way for the greatest potential experience of joy, divine love and fulfillment in this lifetime. In the spirit of Ramana Maharshi and Avelokiteshvara, the transmission for this class Liberation of Impermanence will lead to an opportunity to share questions and responses, to be followed by a meditation time and space “in the field” of all creative potential. Chiraya will guide participants into this magnetic, still pool of deep reflection and healing. The energy and Presence does the work of dissolving that which needs to be dissolved, healing that which needs to be healed, and restoring that which needs to be restored.

WE DREAM DAWN
In 2006, Sage started searching for a place to intentionally broadcast some seeds, he ended up in a band called Elephant Revival, fulfilling some of his wildest dreams like traveling from forest to forest, living in a vegetable oil powered school bus and eventually playing Red Rocks. However, this dream about seriously growing one’s own food was growing louder and In november 2013. Aera and Sage left Colorado to pursue permaculture style homesteading adventures on the border of Oklahoma and Kansas, its been rewarding and oh so very humbling. They weren’t planning on starting another band, it just happened, music happens wherever it wants, we dream dawn is an attempt to find a symbiosis, art and abundance for those not yet born. It began to take shape after harvesting sweet potatoes, Aera took a break and found out she had a knack for the electric bass. Aera proceeded to learn to play the bass and a whole set of music in a week and Weston nailed it on the drums that night. WE DREAM DAWN developed out of the idea that we can consciously realize our dreams or sleep them away and it dawned on the band later that they all really love each other. So here they are, playing what some may call dreamy post folk music.

CurlyOnE
Ever since CurlyOnE first stepped up to the decks back in 1999, he’s been picking up momentum… and he is definitely not showing any signs of slowing! Born in 1980, and having been brought up on a steady diet of golden-era Hip-Hop, 80’s club beats and classic Salsa/Latin Jazz records, he had a fascination with turntables, poly-rhythmic drums and pumping baselines…So it’s no wonder that his journey into the DJ realm started in the House and Techno raves of the Mid-West, with a pair of belt-drive turntables and a desire to move the crowd. Spending hours locked away in the bedroom teaching himself how to mix, it wasn’t long before his skill level was on par with those who were at the forefront of the local music scene. After discovering the sounds of Jungle/Drum and Bass in the early 2000’s, he was driven by the desire to mix the street-savvy beats from his youth with futuristic, alien sounds that were being pushed through speaker stacks at the parties he attended. Having finished college back home in Puerto Rico, CurlyOnE returned to Colorado in 2004. He immediately begin immersing himself in the local music scene, playing small local shows, helping promote events, and networking with like-minded individuals. By the end of 2008, he discovered the sounds of Dubstep, and became completely obsessed. A chance encounter with members of Denver’s Sub.mission Crew was all he needed to send him in the right direction, and he’s been putting in work ever since. He’s been blessed to have performed at some of Colorado largest EDM events, including Global Dance Festival and Skylab. However, he does not limit himself to the EDM world… He’s been on several tours across the state playing shows with artists such as Souls of Mischief, Masta Ace & Edo G, Sweatshop Union, Prime Element, and Grieves. He has even held the honor of being “party-rock DJ” for the Colorado DMC Championships 3 years running.

Tapping Into the Acoustic Bass - Justin Bruhn, Matt Cantor, Jon Pickett

It’s all about that bass. The acoustic bass that is. Join Justin Bruhn (Pert Near Sandstone), Matt Cantor (Gipsy Moon), and Jon Pickett (Chain Station) for a fun Playshop Session all about exploring what is possible with the acoustic bass.

Justin Bruhn (Pert Near Sandstone)
Raised by ferrel cats on the streets of Bucharest, Justin mainly used an upright bass for shelter. Upon learning that his bass could be used as a musical instrument, he worked his way off the streets by performing on the streets. Also having spent a lot of time on the streets, Pert Near Sandstone found Justin while battling for turf. They decided to join forces two years ago and have since opened up on a Colorado tour for the McCoury's and shared the stage with Sam Bush!

Matt Cantor (Gipsy Moon)
Matt is a Colorado native, born and raised in Boulder.  He has been playing the bass for over 12 years.  The bass he uses was originally played by his grandfather who played Jazz in New York for over 70 years.

Jon Pickett (Chain Station) 
Jon Pickett plays the double-bass, sings lead & harmony and writes many songs with Chain Station, based in Colorado's front range. A multi-instrumentalist on bass, drums and guitar Jon has made singing and playing the upright his main focus and passion since 2010. He has become know for belting out energetic and soulful lead vocals and haunting high harmonies while laying down a solid and creative bass groove, the foundation upon which Chain Station's prolific pickers soar.

American Babies
Although American Babies began as a side project for Tom Hamilton with a rotating cast of musicians, the lineup has recently solidified to include Hamilton’s longtime partner-in-crime bassist Clay Parnell (Particle, Brothers Past), keyboardist Adam Flicker (The Brakes), drummer Al Smith, and rhythm guitarist Justin Mazer. With American Babies, Hamilton has turned his focus to songwriting and crafting lyrics that share tales of trials and tribulations ranging from working class hard truths and political chaos to personal relationships gone sour. Fearlessly blending a passion for songwriting with the electronica-based improv rock that Hamilton and Parnell developed with Brothers Past, American Babies are pioneering a new sound – fusing serious songs with an open-ended sense of adventure that encourages full-group improvisation in the live setting. Tom Hamilton had the pleasure of playing with Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Phil Lesh, and Bill Kreutzmann during his 2014 tour, as well as reunite with Clay Parnell on stage.

Gipsy Moon
With music as their caravan, strings as their weapon and the horizon as their aim, this unconventional band is not one to be missed. Their sound, often referred to as Gipsygrass, is something like a backwoods hoedown meets the smoking basement of a New York jazz club. Their soothing harmonies, raging solos and dirt encrusted bass lines bring an old time style into an exciting new dimension; one that hippies and poets, lovers and dancers, freaks and families alike can all come together and move in ways that their bodies have never known. The members, made up of Silas Herman (mandolin), David Matters (banjo/vocals/guitar), Mackenzie Page (guitar/vocals/tenor banjo), Andrew Conley (Cello) and Matt Cantor (Bass) all take rest in the windy mountains of Nederland, Colorado. When they are not on the move you can find them here, forming cantos high up in the Rockies, making herbal concoctions out of the local flora or sharing a glistening jug of homebrew around a blazing campfire. This is but a small glimpse into the source of their musical inspiration. They create music that is meant to plant inspiration in the soul and start a fire in the heart. They perform with the intention to build community and to invoke love in its wildest manifestation. They travel in order to experience life to its fullest and to build bridges that connect the frayed ends of the crumbling establishment to a new and beautiful way of existence. If one should ever come upon an opportunity to see Gipsy Moon, whether on the stage, in the woods or even sleeping in your backyard, they should be pleased at the prospect of kicking off their shoes, smiling to the heavens and getting down and dirty to some rowdy ass picking.

Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad
Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad (GPGDS) is known for folding the aesthetics of the jamband scene into the structures of reggae. In the live setting, the band performs extended jams, while their previous studio albums have blended roots reggae with psychedelia (In These Times, 2012) or diverged from the genre completely, journeying into straight Americana (Country, 2012). On STEADY, the band’s fourth studio album (and first on Easy Star Records), GPGDS has synthesized their approach by weaving traditional folk instrumentation into a foundation of reggae, with arrangements that let the reggae breathe in a non-traditional way. While STEADY may not be the first record to find inspiration in both old time Appalachia and ‘70s Jamaica, it may be the best. Giant Panda formed in 2001 in Rochester, New York. A mysteriously fertile area for developing the U.S. reggae scene, the city has ties going back to 1981 when Lee “Scratch” Perry recruited his entire backing band from Rochester. In these formative years, Giant Panda began to explore their songs with an experimental approach that is stylistically akin to the Grateful Dead, while keeping their roots firmly planted in reggae rhythms and lyrical content. Around 2005 tapers began to notice and soon after one of the band’s first Colorado shows received homepage placement on the popular taper website Archive.org. Almost overnight GPGDS became a mainstay on the jamband festival circuit.

Joe Russo's Almost Dead
Joe Russo’s Almost Dead is Scott Metzger, Tommy Hamilton, Dave Dreiwitz, Marco Benevento & Joe Russo. “Not only does this quintet play tight and vicious versions of some of the most complex songs in the Grateful Dead’s repertoire, but they play them with a rawness & energy absent from the stage since the “Live” Dead era. More importantly, all of the jams are wild and incredibly adventurous. Russo’s a beast behind the kit who’s in the peak of his career. Metzger is a criminally underrated guitarist who has a chameleon-like ability to alter his sound to compliment any situation. Dreiwitz’s intensity is unmatched by anyone, while Benevento spouts these crazy tones and layers of sound that mix the best of what each keyboardist in GD history brought to the band. Finally, add Hamilton, whose voice and biting leads help push this ensemble over the top.” – Scott Bernstein

Pert Near Sandstone rejuvenates American stringband music with raw energy; they play tightly-crafted original material that lends itself to the modern audience, as well as being stewards of the old-time and bluegrass traditions.

Wildlight
Wildlight is the space between the notes, the earth’s undulating pulse, the modern echoes of ancient rhythms. It is a sound that will spark your body into motion and swing your soul into flight. An unlikely pairing of a folk songwriter and an electronic music composer has yielded a new sound; music that gracefully traverses human emotions, but can also jumpstart a party into a syncopated bounce.
While vocalist Ayla Nereo delicately crafts songs that climb and tumble through a landscape of crescendos and harmonies, seasoned composer David Sugalski (aka The Polish Ambassador) keeps the beats and bass rooted deep in the subatomic layers of the earth.

Lunar Fire Ritual
LUNAR FIRE, based in Denver, Colorado, takes audiences to new heights with spectacular dance and musical performances. Pre-Columbian flutes, multilingual vocalists, powerful drummers and a wide range of bass and guitar styles tell stories reflected in dance. Aerialists fly, drop from the sky, crawl into a cocoon and emerge a warrior, a nature spirit, an animal guide. Multiple dancers meld into one multi armed being, circle, battle and burn fire in the form of dreamcatchers, antlers, machetes, staff, torches, ropes, multi poi, fans, fireflies and other surprises. Paintings come to life mysteriously hovering in the air. These mystic images by visionary painters MARTINA HOFFMANN, ROBERT VENOSA, STEVON LUCERO and ADAM FU twist and bend under the movement of dance, a very enchanting and psychedelic visual effect.

Setting himself apart from the masses, Ronnie has the unique ability to masterfully create the most marvelous dichotomy of sound within each track. Two dynamically oppositional forces are pitted against each other in a musical battle royale; the result is always a titanic struggle of epic proportions, from which only Unlimited Gravity could possibly emerge victorious.

Treaphort
Audio production is a form of active meditation for Treaphort; a way to center his mind and cultivate creativity. The music that is channeled reflects the state of alert calmness that one receives from practicing presence.

As his experience and knowledge of sound, vibration, energy and life deepens; so his music develops as well. Treaphort is constantly learning more about frequencies, vibration, intentional tone, etc. and how they interact and affect our bodies and minds, weaving these ideas into the audio production.

He’s fascinated/obsessed with clean and true sound, nice quality speakers and heavy bass frequencies. Music that can be played loud enough to feel physically but that does not hurt or cause damage your ears, causing the sound vibrations to caress your body and stroke your mind is all he asks for.

Peace Qigong

How do we practice residing in our center in the midst of reaching out? How do we harmonize the infinite beautiful energies around us with our own multiplicity? What can we do to cultivate tranquility and quiescence within, so that we may move through life's dynamic changes with a sense of being on a path of peace?

I would like to teach peace qigong as a method to provide participants an experience of embodied knowing that responds to the inquiries above. Qigong is a holistic practice that aligns mind, breath, and movement to restore vitality and clarity. Peace qigong is a form that will support Arise as a community brought together through shared intention, vision, and compassion. It includes a guided visualization that imagines each person's heartbeat connected to the heartbeat of mother earth, connected to the heartbeat of all living beings. Participants will both reach out to feel connection energetically in the field, and draw in to harmonize that energy internally. This course will be appropriate for practitioners of all levels, including those who have never done qigong before. Teaching, questions and answers are possible, but practice that remains focused on direct experience without rational analysis may be more appropriate based on the desires of the group.


Workshop Description: Peace is within us, each and every moment. Please join me for an embodied experience that restores vitality, clarity, and peace through movement, visualization, and breath. Qigong is a simple practice of moving energy intentionally throughout your body and beyond, and requires no previous experience. In peace qigong, you will sense your heartbeat connected to the heartbeat of mother earth, resonating with the heartbeat of all living beings. As you are guided through this form, you will experience harmonization of energies within and around you. This gentle method will help you feel centered and clear, and support our Arise experience by enhancing and uniting our shared intention, vision, and compassion.

Vibrational Embodiment Yin + Yang Fusion - Shareshten
The inevitably life-changing practice of yoga is the most simple way I know to touch into stillness, which is relative to our ideas of loud. I explore the seeming duality of our existence through Hatha, Yin, Vinyasa, Power, and Restorative Yoga. I am a thematic teacher that finds pleasure in the interlacing of philosophical wisdom with the art of sequencing & silence. I have been told I have the most soothing voice by almost everyone I have ever taught. I see each class I teach as a sacred gift and opportunity to become more present with myself and those around me. I look at each student as a divine ally in the great mystery of existence. I can never say enough how much I love my teachers. I am so grateful to have studied closely with Carla Stangenberg, Scott Feinberg, Jaye Bryan, Sarah Powers, Valerie D’Ambrosio, and Lisa Wimberger. I have had the great priviledge of studying more moderately with Sean Corne, Richard Freeman, Shiva Rae, The Dalai Lama, and Shree Shree Ravi Shankar. There are so many others who are not mentioned and ultimately every being is my teacher. So I thank you from the bottom of my heart for being who you are right where you are. May we find more time to play in nature, to appreciate our bodies and minds for the amazing instruments they are and to free our spirits so that the world can know peace.

John Quigley - Human Aerial Art Project - Open Space in Campground - All are invited to participate
A message from John Quigley, our co-creator, mentor, inspiration and friend 

We saw a need for communities to express their dreams and to address urgent issues. This unique mix of human installation, aerial photography, and political activism brings together communities to create large-scale messages for the common good. Focusing on themes of health, human rights, social justice, ecological balance, democracy, and freedom, the work strives to liberate the spirit and inspire unity and creative activation through participation.

We coined the phrase Aerial Art in the mid-nineties as a way to enroll all those involved to become Aerial Artists. Most people don’t consider themselves artists. Because this work involves thousands of people I saw the opportunity to not only send powerful messages but also to creatively activate the participants to see themselves in a new way. The participants are not extras on a film shoot. They are never paid to do this. They have to believe in the message enough to spend several hours of their time sitting, laying, kneeling, or standing in a giant form with their bodies most likely touching a stranger.

They become co-creators of a momentary human sculpture that is documented for the world to see then dispersed to the wind like a Tibetan Sand Mandala. The experience involves both precision and chaos and hopefully above all FUN. We get to play with each other while embodying a message to the world about what matters most to us. And we do it all through direct experience in the presence of each other rather than virtual electro reality. My mission has been to create a world of Aerial Artists by sparking participants to become creatively activated and to connect with each other.

We define Aerial Art as the creation of forms upon the land whose true identity is only revealed from an aerial perspective. Historically this dates back to the Nazca lines in Peru and ancient cities that oriented their structures along lines that formed a pattern if viewed from above. The modern inception of Human Aerial Art dates back to the early part of the twentieth century when photographers Mole and Thomas began traveling to military bases and creating massive installations of patriotic icons such as the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell, Woodrow Wilson’s profile, the Marine Corps Seal and many others.

In the end this work is all about people, what they love, beauty, and our connection to nature. One of the things that I emphasize when I’m addressing the coordination team before an event is to recognize what a powerful and unique moment we’re about to experience…hundreds to thousands of people coming together in these giant forms because they care. I remind them of all the time, energy and resources that have been invested to make this heightened moment possible and encourage them to pour love into each person as they shape the image. We often are at the center of the chaos in those moments screaming like a madman at the top of my lungs “You’re beautiful! Do you know how truly beautiful you are? It’s amazing what happens when people join together, risk, and allow themselves to be seen.

There is a word or concept in sanskrit, “Lila”, roughly translating to our word play. Lila however is much deeper and richer than our word and could better be described as Divine Play. It can be viewed as the play of the Gods or the unfolding of our Universe through creation, destruction and recreation, its precept being LOVE. In this embodied vinyasa class you’ll breathe and move intentionally between shapes while infusing this concept of Lila. Contemplating the transient nature of all things, we realize the importance of tapping into our innate playful and curious nature and take delight in, and fully enjoy the moment..

Reviva!

Reviva is more than just a band, it is a way of life. Literally, the word “Reviva” in Spanish translates to “relive”, or “revive”. Our mission is to revive justice, peace, and original music in our local and global community. When you leave a Reviva concert, we want you to feel refreshed, renewed, and reenergized. That’s because we’ve spent five years together perfecting our lyrics and sound in an effort to be the original voice for the voiceless. We sing about real stories that happen to real people, from American adolescent self-esteem issues, the Lost Boys of Sudan, PTSD rates in our troops, to innocent Afghanis who have lost their families and livelihood over a misguided war for oil. We tell the truth about life, love, and even death itself, and do it through incredible live performances from some of Albuquerque’s top professional musicians.

Film: Secret of Water

Water – a living substance, the most common and least understood. It defies the basic laws of physics, yet holds the keys to life. Known to ancients as a transmitter to and from the higher realms, water retains memory and conveys information to DNA. However, water can die if treated poorly. Influences such as sound, thoughts, intention, and prayer, as well as toxins such as chlorine, structure water’s molecular arrangement– affecting all it comes in contact with. Prominent scientists help reveal the secret of water, allowing us to use this amazing element to heal ourselves and our planet.

Homegrown in Denver Colorado, Tatanka is a quartet specializing in the sounds of dub, progressive reggae, dancehall, and electro soundscapes. Heavy Caribbean drum and bass grooves provide the pulse for the party as the music invites you to get down and dirty. In March of 2010, this group of Denver dub samurai released their first studio E.P. entitled Sounds in Technicolor. Sounds in Technicolor has reached over 10,000 downloads through Tatanka’s website and social networking sites. The pulsing basslines provided by Tatanka’s Malonestar seem to rock the mind into trance while Champian’s guitar work and The Mexico’s hi-hat, snare and kick drum 4/4 playing styles pepper over the top of the album’s four track’s almost flawlessly. Dub Rock Syndicate recently gave the boys the title “the up and coming kings of dubtronic”.

Magic Giant
Like a banjo player and a DJ rocking a club show in a barn, Magic Giant is a band on a mission to move bodies and souls. The group kicked off 2015 with a performance on KEXP hosted by John Richards (credited for discovering The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey”). They have since been featured on Spotify’s New Music Tuesday, Billboard for ‘Artist on the Verge,’ and NPR’s Songs We Love, which proclaimed, “This L.A. indie-folk band has a summer festival anthem on its hands.”
The trio just wrapped up self-producing its debut EP, notably featuring Rashawn Ross of Dave Matthews Band and Spencer Ludwig of Capital Cities. The band’s communal live shows are inspired by experiential groups like The Grateful Dead and events like Woodstock. Described by some as “rave-folk,” Magic Giant has been turning clubs into dance parties on their maiden US headline tour, concluding with a full house at the legendary Troubadour in Los Angeles.
Magic Giant continues to build a reputation for its anthemic sing-alongs, blending organic instruments with big drums and electronic beats. The band is composed of Austin Bis on lead vocals; Zambricki Li on banjo, mandolin, and fiddle; and Brian Zaghi on upright bass and acoustic guitar.

Finding Voice, Receiving Song - Ayla Nereo
This workshop led by songwriter and performer Ayla Nereo will open up our creative channels to receive song, to experiment and play with our voices and creative process, and to offer our Sound into the world to feed the Life that breathes us each moment. Through trusting our ability to listen and create sound, we learn to trust our own intuition and power to be creators of our lives. Each time we sing, we find new edges, and by leaning into them we can see who we are becoming. We sing for the Joy of it. And we sing for the Need of it, to make offerings of sound that can ripple out and make beauty and good for this planet. Ayla will facilitate group singing that leads us into a deeper understanding of how to receive and create music, find words and craft lyrics, shape melodies into whole songs, and trust ourselves as we do it all.

This is an open space for us all to be creative, loud, playful, and strong. It is both a personal journey and a collective experience.

ALL are welcome, whether you are a singer, songwriter, poet, painter, wish to sing or create more, have never touched an instrument, or just want to get inspired.

The sea, the sky, the countryside, the people within and their strengths, weaknesses, successes and failures. Spirits and guardian angels, recurring dreams, the unseen forces that silently sway. He explores himself alongside and within these elements on Hold Fast. London-born Christian Letts returned to his native countryside to record his first LP, Hold Fast, with his friend and collaborator Marcus Mumford who produced the record. Other friends from their respective bands (Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Mumford and Sons) joined them at the farm, where, over the course of two consecutive Januaries, they crafted the ten tracks that comprise Hold Fast.

Peter Yarrow w/ Bethany & Rufus
Peter Yarrow of the legendary folk / pop trio Peter, Paul and Mary coming to the Arise Music Festival in August is a huge treat on so many levels. Peter not only represents a voice of the greatest era in the history of American folk music but he is a true inspirational icon of nearly every significant movement of social justice over the past 50 years–singing out from the front lines of the civil rights, peace, anti-apartitide and environmental movements. The depth of his humanity and his unwavering conviction to stand firmly on the right side of history makes Peter Yarrow a particularly honored guest performer at the 2014 Arise Festival and we are thrilled that his spirited, uplifting and unifying musical gift will grace our stage. We are also very fortunate that Peter’s performance will be accompanied by the beautifully soulful vocals of his daughter Bethany Yarrow and her cello virtuoso husband, Rufus Cappadocia.” – Paul Bassis,

Larry Keel's All-Star Tribute to Jerry Garcia
Larry Keel is described by some reviewers as the most powerful, innovative and all-out exhilarating acoustic flatpicking guitarist performing today. Keel has absorbed the best lessons from his Bluegrass family upbringing, both sides deeply steeped in the rich mountain music culture and heritage of Southwest Virginia. From there, he has always integrated that solid musical grounding and natural-born talent with his own incomparable approach to flatpicking the guitar and composing original music. He’s also got a knack for choosing interesting and appealing material from all realms of music with guts, whether it’s a tune written by a fellow song-writer/musician friend, or a tasty cover from any number of genres all over the map. The combination is pretty irresistible, and has earned Keel the highest respect and billing among the top acoustic musicians alive, and some now gone: Tony Rice, Chris Thile,Vassar Clements, Sam Bush, Del McCoury, John Hartford, Bill Monroe, Peter Rowan, and Darol Anger to name a few. And his fierce, high-spirited energy also appeals to young rockers, jammers and alt country pickers and fans who are equally drawn to Keel’s deep rumbling voice, his earthy and imaginative song-writing, and his down-home-gritty-good-time charm.

Integrative Authentic Relating
with Jason Diggs

Workshop Description: Fun and highly-interactive group exercises that explore ways of seeing, connecting, and appreciating yourself and others at a deeper level.

By ‘games’ we mean fun, highly interactive partner and group exercises that demonstrate and explore authentic relating, getting to know yourself better while at the same time learning to see and appreciate more about everyone you connect with.

By ‘authentic’ we mean that there is no cookie-cutter mold for how you “should” be or what relating “should look like”. Everyone is a complete universe unto themselves, has a unique style, personality, and integrity that is perfectly *them*, and everyone is perfect and amazing as they are (including their belief that they aren’t.)

They are safe places for taking risks, practicing the art of relating with others, playing a little more outside our comfort zones and discovering more about ourselves than we might in our everyday lives.

They’re also a chance to have fun and party in a conscious way with great people, going beyond small talk and expected (and sometimes boring) social norms.

Human Agency
At its core, hip-hop/electronic group Human Agency is comprised of producer Seamus Moore and vinyl DJ/producer Ryan Kjos. Good men, and thorough. Growing up in high school jazz band, Seamus & Ryan have performed and produced music together for over 10 years. Their sound originates from the use of vinyl samples, which contribute to a unique spread of symphonic, soul, folk rock and world rhythms. With the addition of beat based production, original composition and live instrumentation, Human Agency pulls off a stylized electronic sound that quickly moves from sultry, calming mid-tempo to aggressive yet calculated dance music. It ain’t jam, it ain’t forceful electronic… it’s just right. As the Agency evolved over its 5 year stint in the Colorado music scene, drummer Jonas Otto was brought on to reinforce heavy rhythms, meticulous tightness and rapier wit. Early 2015 saw The Agency expand to regularly incorporate live guitar, bass guitar and multi-dimensional keyboard/organ work to their sound, launching this established act into new galaxies of possibility and style. This breath of new life takes their shows to brand new platforms of appeal. Human Agency’s music is distinctive and inimitable, their sense of arrangement and movement is calculated, and there is no sign of these boys stopping anytime soon. Find their music on iTunes, Spotify, Pandora & BandCamp (free DL) They have shared the stage with legendary acts such as EMANCIPATOR, BONOBO, SHPONGLE, RJD2, THE NEW DEAL, ORCHARD LOUNGE, BREAK SCIENCE, ZOOGMA, BOOMBOX, LITTLE PEOPLE, BLUETECH, OTT, FUTURE ROCK & more!

Lily Fangz (L.Fangz) is about fully engaging in the creative explorations of life, biting down, infecting those around with passion, perspective, and perhaps asking the questions that aren’t posed enough. Wordplay started way back- writing since she could hold a pencil, that process evolved into stories, sketches, poetry, rhymes. Her memory is capacious and flow sick like contagious- so she began to share her words and release them free from their pages. Gravitated towards performance poetry, a lot of slams, jams, and cyphers. Realizing making music and art is the only thing that can quench her thirst LFangz is here to Chomp.The.Fuck.Down sink her teeth in and invites all to join the feast of engaging with this human experience C.T.F.D!

Analog Son
After 17 years of musical camaraderie, Jordan Linit (Kinetix/Ableminds) and Josh Fairman (Kinetix) have created Analog Son. Based around a studio project involving The Shady Horns (Lettuce, Soulive), Joe Tatton (The New Mastersounds), Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk) and Joey Porter (The Motet/Juno), Analog Son calls upon the funkiest of friends including some of Denver’s finest local talent (members of The Congress, Fox Street All Stars, Kinetix, Rebel Tounge, Devon Parker, the Shady Horns, Joe Tatton and more). This funky brainchild was born at Scanhope Sound in fall 2013, and while Josh and Jordan had conceptualized this project for years, much of the composition was impromptu as each guest musician brought their own unique brand of artistry to the table stirring up a sizzling musical melting pot. Analog Son has supported The Funky Meters, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, The New Mastersounds and Orgone at some of Colorado’s premiere venues.

Lunar Fire Ritual
LUNAR FIRE, based in Denver, Colorado, takes audiences to new heights with spectacular dance and musical performances. Pre-Columbian flutes, multilingual vocalists, powerful drummers and a wide range of bass and guitar styles tell stories reflected in dance. Aerialists fly, drop from the sky, crawl into a cocoon and emerge a warrior, a nature spirit, an animal guide. Multiple dancers meld into one multi armed being, circle, battle and burn fire in the form of dreamcatchers, antlers, machetes, staff, torches, ropes, multi poi, fans, fireflies and other surprises. Paintings come to life mysteriously hovering in the air. These mystic images by visionary painters MARTINA HOFFMANN, ROBERT VENOSA, STEVON LUCERO and ADAM FU twist and bend under the movement of dance, a very enchanting and psychedelic visual effect.

Mikey Thunder
Mikey Thunder likes to party. But more than that, Mikey Thunder just so happens to be the party. Thunder spins a genre-blending, bass-driven partyrock, fusing funk, soul, hip-hop, EDM, jazz, reggae and anything else the party may call for on the fly. With 19 years in the game, he’s mastered the art of improvisation with an uncanny ability to work with and rework the vibe of the party with precision. If you’re a true connoisseur of the Colorado music scene, you’ve seen Mikey share the stage with any number of your favorite artists- no matter the genre. It all began for Mikey at the age of 15 when he discovered DJing in Burlington, Vermont and immersed himself in the diverse musical culture of his hometown. In the fall of 1999, he relocated to the mountains of Jackson Hole where he was soon kidnapped by Michael Franti and Spearhead for the Stay Human Tour. After opening for Spearhead in Jackson Hole, Thunder was handpicked by Michael Franti to open the rest of the tour, where he mixed beats into their sets, during set break, and scratched with their beatboxer, Radioactive.

Trevor Hall
Trevor Hall’s music – an eclectic mix of acoustic rock, reggae and Sanskrit chanting – echo with the names and teachings of divinities, while maintaining an incredibly and refreshingly universal message. While on the road, Trevor sees the stage as his moving temple, a place where he can share in the experience of his spiritual journey with his audience. Trevor quickly broke through the music scene, with such early accomplishments in his career as having a song recorded on the Shrek the Third soundtrack, as well as joining a series of sold-out tours with artists such as Steel Pulse, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Matisyahu, Michael Franti, SOJA, Brett Dennen and Colbie Callait. Trevor’s quick rise on the scene, however, was ripe with challenges that conflicted with his spiritual life and devotional practice. In order to parallel his life’s path with the messages in his music, Trevor moved into a traditional Hindu ashram in Southern California in 2008. When not on tour, he lived as a monk and devoted his days to spiritual practice and service. His involvement with the temple affected his music and his music quickly became his practice.
