There is a peaceful revolution spreading around the world that is rippling out from the hearts of millions to create a sea of change. It’s a revolution of evolution through love. It’s the LovEvolution. Do you feel it? Come join us at “Camp LovEvolution” in the Blue Ridge Mountains for a beautiful and intimate weekend focused on co-creating a world of compassion, cooperation and celebration. Clear your mind, open your heart and sing, dance, hike, breath, eat, laugh, cry, dream and connect deeply with nature and spirit. Share your heart, spirit, talents, wisdom, visions and gifts to foster the world we know in our hearts is possible. Tickets – Our intention is to make this gathering a decomodified sharing of that which is sacred – our talents, skills, energy, wisdom and love. Therefore tickets, which include five free vegan meals, are priced minimally to cover costs and make this event affordable. Children under 13 are free. Any amounts collected beyond our basic expenses will be donated to the local Manna FoodBank to feed those in need. Tickets are now available through Event Brite. Location: Camp Hope (Camp LovEvolution) in the Pisgah National Forest is less than one hour from Asheville, North Carolina. Address: 312 Camp Hope Road in Canton, NC. The most scenic drive is to take the Blue Ridge Parkway South (West) from Asheville and exit north on HWY 276 (Cruso Road) for seven miles. The campground is well equipped with a large lodge, kitchen, covered pavilion/band stage and eight bunk houses. What to bring: While two free healthy vegan meals will be served each day (Brunch and Dinner), we invite you to bring the food you love to share for the communal dinners. If you enjoy dairy and meat feel free to bring them for yourself and or to share. Cooking facilities will be available for you at the Magic Love Bus kitchen. Also bring instruments to play at the dance and drumming circle and a heartfelt gift offering for the Sunday gift sharing circle and an open heart and mind. Your sacred items and decorations for the heart altar are also welcome. A flashlight is also essential for navigating in the woods and along the enchanted river walk at night. Bring yoga matts and/or cushions to sit on during workshops since the pavillion workshop area is a hard floor. In addition, bring your bedding, pillows and towels for bunks or for camping. Bring your grooviest outfit for the Summer of Love Party on the Flashback Magic Love Bus Saturday night. Accommodations: There will be eight communal bunk houses available as well as areas for tents for those who want more privacy. Bring your own bedding, pillows, yoga mats and towels for the bunk beds or a tent if camping outside. Bathroom facilities, including showers are available. Be sure to also bring a flashlight and personal toiletries. Note - This is an alcohol and drug free event. We expect to be plenty high on love, connection and joy. You’re responsible for your own state of consciousness. Just keep in mind that the true present is to truly be present! Safety – To truly open up to each other and share intimately – trust and safety are essential. We ask that all participants share in the responsibility of creating a safe container for all by respecting the boundaries and wishes of others and holding this expectation for others. Anyone not respecting this safe container will be asked to amend their behavior or leave the event. Children Welcome – We intend to have a supervised children’s space with activities for kids to engage in so parents can roam free. Children under 13 are free. Volunteering Your Energy and Talent - This gathering is an opportunity for us to share our talents, love and gifts with our tribe.
