Rooted in Wonder is proud to announce its very first conscious-minded event: Awake and Dreaming.
Awake and Dreaming is the shift from being 'asleep' to waking up to a heightened state of awareness, wonder, and transformation. Awake and Dreaming refers to the balance between light and dark, masculine and feminine, within each of us. We are called to acknowledge both halves of ourselves toward becoming whole beings. Guests are encouraged to dress in costumes to reflect this state of Awake and Dreaming.
