Scientist and author, Brooks A. Agnew, Ph. D., offered insight into sacred geometry, and explained how random numerical cycles ultimately return to the Golden Mean, a mathematical message of hope. He is the host of X-Squared radio. www.x2-radio.com
A film festival, including the film, 2012: We’re In It, was hosted by Elevate Films (www.elevatefilms.com)
A raw food panel was sponsored by the award-winning superfood company, Transition Nutrition (www.TransitionNutrition.com). The panel was emceed by radio host, Laura Fox. Panelist Chad Ashley Vandenburg noted that he believed that the perception of scarcity that is so pervasive in people’s consciousness springs from a cellular level. Since food in the average diet is so lacking in nutrients, our bodies’ cells fight an inner battle for resources, and this inner war translates into the macrocosms of daily and global life. He and others on the panel all related feeling more relaxed, peaceful, and kind, in addition to experiencing more vibrant health, after switching to a nutrient-rich, raw food diet.
The Chocolate Chakra Shakedown event was a cosmic combo of yoga and dance, energized by delicious Bliss Balls, a pure, vibration-raising superfood that offers instant euphoria with no guilt.
At five bucks a pop (for a ball the size of a small brownie), I was skeptical. But now, I’m a believer! The raw food Bliss Bar café also offered such delectables as a choco-maca Bliss Shake, and a Neptune Nori roll made of sunflower ginger pate and avocado! www.theblissbar.org
And the Divine Organics Coconut Gelato (a non-dairy "ice cream" - the Chocolate Almond Ecstasy flavor was amazing), the BlissMix (super energizing trail mix with amazing nuts and cacao bits), and out-of-this-world Sacred Cacao Brittle, by Transition Nutrition, were all absolutely to, um, live for! www.transitionnutrition.com (I considered it my journalistic duty to taste everything.)

Rassouli's paintings and Rumi translations grace his calendar.
Fusionart movement founder, Rassouli, offered images of his uplifting artwork in multimedia presentations, as well as a Fusionart room, where accomplished artists as well as novices romped in creativity together during the weekend.
