They say - "The theme of the festival is Illumination and Enlightenment, and we are asking 'What is Enlightenment?' and collecting responses from the public to project throughout the event - so tweet or text in your response (see above for details). Throughout the evening we'll be offering workshops, meditation, pujas, performances, yoga, dance and live music - all connected to Enlightenment.
"Some of the highlights will be 'Storytelling from the Cave Shrine' - Vidyadasi's dramatised reading of the life of Padmasambhava from 7pm - 3am! She will be doing this to raise money for Buddhafield's land project - check her fundraising page at www.justgiving.com/PadmasambhavasLiberation. There's also 'The Beauty of Mantra' with Mahasukha, a White Lotus Sutra interactive workshop, Create your own little books of Enlightenment - 3 wishes, 3 loves, 3 secrets, 3 things to let go of, An Improvised comedy workshop to help transform our minds and shake loose old limiting self-views, also live set from Bob Hillary (www.bobhillarymellow.com) and midnight 5 Rhythms dance with Tim Stephenson.
"And finally, at 5 am Kavyasiddhi will lead an Akshobya puja to greet the dawn! Then we'll join a dawn chorus on the beach - of course we'll all be Enlightened by then!
"Come and join us..
