…And there we were, in the midst of chaos. Humankind stood at the dawn of their awakening. A message of light called upon the earthly family. As visionary voyagers set out to channel the message, it became clear: the key to unlocking the universe’s infinite potential resides within ourselves.
As consciousness unfolds faster, heart is emancipated and truths are remembered. We begin to manifest experiences that help us elevate our existence. Cognitive Awakening is an event created with focused intention to provide a fertile ground for growth and transformation, encouraging all to share the wisdom and magic they carry. Join us in this celebration of creation. Let us unite and allow ourselves to fully shine as we cocreate our new existence.
A collection of unique beings offer us a chance to experience intelligent music. May the harmonic frequencies inspire us to celebrate through dance and unveil our true selves.
At this time of awakening, our access to truth is expanding. We choose to align by sharing our wisdom and rediscovering forgotten knowledge. Since the tools shared are simple truth, sometimes even a word can allow us to stand up in our power.
We are blessed with the oppertunity to witness new age artists project the reflection from the other side. Let us explore the universe that is our mind. Life's blank canvas awaites the creators. May we be inspired to tap into our divine imagination while creating a new way of living.
The new generations comes with great knowledge. It is our responsibility to allow them the opportunity to create and develop, empowering them to be the majestic beings that the are. With art, music and fun, we shall provide a magical, nurturing realm for them to flower. We are honored to have those young master among us.
As we are in the midst of a symbolic and literal transitionary phase of our evolution and consciousness as a species, Cognitive Awakening seeks to be a model for a truly sustainable society focused on the pursuit of art, music and other creative ventures, free from pain and hunger and instead pleasure-focused, and fostering a sense of exploration and the attainment of knowledge. We believe that education on healthy and sustainable living practices benefits us all, as we are all a part of our living breathing planet - Gaia Earth. Accordingly, Cognitive Awakening promotes eco-education through strategic partnerships with community organizations and conscious companies and encourages participation and creativity at our workshops, yoga sessions, and beyond. We strive to give rise to a lasting consciousness that is attuned to and aware of how our choices and actions influence the earth and to create practicable solutions to the issues we face.
While it is virtually impossible to ensure that an event will be completely impact-free, or event totally zero waste, we seek to minimize our environmental impact as much as possible in regard to emissions and resource use, by properly planning for and managing waste management, transport of goods and people, power generation, the resources and products we use and purchase, and water management.The following are some of our sustainability initiatives for Cognitive Awakening 2012:
We would like all guests, artists, volunteers, and staff to throw all waste generated in public areas at Cognitive Awakening in the appropriate bin. Everything at Cognitive Awakening can be classified as Landfill, Recycle, or Compost. Plastic bottles and other hard plastic, cardboard and paper, aluminum cans, and glass bottles should be directed to the Recycle waste stream. Bottle caps should be directed to the Landfill bins; aluminum cans should be crushed before being tossed in a Recycle bin. Unfinished food and food or beverage-soiled paper and cardboard should be directed to the Compost bins. Everything else should be directed to the Landfill, because that is indeed where these other items will be going! We encourage campers to bring tents and other unwanted but functioning camping equipment to the waste sorting area at the end of the weekend. Other than that, please practice the principles of Leave No Trace at your campsite by picking up ALL waste - including cigarette butts and little pieces of plastic or paper wrappers - at the end of the weekend and packing in all of your campsite waste in pre-sorted bags and disposing properly off-site. We CAN NOT process camper waste, so please help us out! PACK IT IN, PACK IT OUT.
