Welcome to UPLIFT: A global festival of transformation. A growing movement of co-creation .
In this time of powerful, transformative change, many individuals and organizations are doing incredible, evolutionary work in the world. Yet, as long as we remain working in isolation, our impact on the whole will always be limited. What is now called for is a new paradigm of collaboration, where global pioneers in science, spirituality, health, indigenous wisdom, business, sustainability and creativity can come together to discover what new possibilities emerge when we unify our visions and actions for the greater good of all.
The fundamental intention and purpose of UPLIFT is to support the shift in global consciousness by creating a dynamic space of fresh collaboration, where the unique gifts, wisdom and skills of each individual (including YOU!) can weave into the collective and be revealed in ways that are beyond what any of us could imagine or achieve on our own.
Born as a festival of transformation in Byron Bay, Australia in December 2012, UPLIFT has rapidly evolved into a thriving global community of events, new projects and unprecedented collaboration in service of humanity and the Earth. For eight days prior to the festival, UPLIFT presenters gather from all around the world, not to promote their own personal work, but to leave their individual knowing and agendas at the door and spend time exploring what great synergies and co-creative possibilities may emerge from all of our collective gifts. The festival and global webcast – which captures a full program of dynamic lectures, workshops and spontaneous symposiums, along with ongoing sessions in yoga, dance, devotional chant, creativity and evening performances with international musicians - is an expression of this convergence. And from this spirit of connection, many unique partnerships have emerged in a very short amount of time, manifesting in global initiatives in all areas of life - including projects devoted to cleaning the rivers in India and waters of the world, empowering visionary youth activists, mentoring conscious business leaders, inspiring health and sustainability on a global level, facilitating transformative reconciliation and peace gatherings in the middle east and supporting indigenous cultures throughout the world.
Anchored in the fundamental belief that there is no separation between the spiritual path and the material world, and that together we are far greater than the sum of our parts, UPLIFT serves as a bridge of new possibility for Humanity and the Earth, empowering each of us to harvest our unique magnificence while celebrating Oneness in action in the word.
UPLIFT is not just another festival. UPLIFT is a dynamic space of unexpected discovery, a birthplace of new possibilities. UPLIFT is an opportunity to dream huge... and together ignite a powerful, positive wave of unified action in the world. WELCOME.
