We're joined by Maven of Ravin' and workshop coordinator for Backwoods Music Festival, Aubrey Monk Warren for a chat about bringing the magic of music festivals home to the "real world" so that we can transform our universe from the inside out. We chat about conscious dance, the truth about entheogenic substances, and of course preview the amazing variety of things that Backwoods Music Festival on Mulberry Mountain has to offer its attendees this year.

Backwoods is taking place at Mulberry Mountain in Arkansas on May 31 to June 2.

Great Things Aubrey Said In This Episode

  • “We plant seeds in people’s consciousness that other ways and paths are possible. If you don’t know another way is there, you never begin the journey.”

  • “I want to empower people who come to festivals with something that they can take home with them, to take the festival home within their being.”

  • “The philosophy of physical yoga is to get the most results in the least amount of effort.”

  • “The more that we get in tune with our own physical bodies, the quicker we will start to pay attention to the entire body, which is the earth. You have to be connected to yourself before you care about clean water.
