The first thing that struck me on arriving at SOAR was the way in which we where welcomed, by the community, which such warmth easy and openness.
We were immediately invited to join the rich rhythm of community life, part-taking in delicious food, yoga, singing, introspection, and meaningful connections.
A few days after arrival SOAR festival kicked off.
This was three days of workshops, celebrations, feats and sharing.
Put together by participants and team.
The festival was a gift to the wider community, (both local and international), giving us a taste of "life at SOAR".
What a feast !
My highlights were many: a non violent-communication workshop, sunrise yoga, council and storytelling, open mic night and wild dance party.
I experienced and witnessed such deep connections, beauty and transformations among all those who attended.
I found so inspiring to feel the power of what has been created here at SOAR over the past 5 months, as unique individuals here came together, created and intricate web of relations with one another.
