About O’Heart Festival
Why “O’Heart”? Well, simply put, the inspiration behind the Festival is to provide a moment of immersion into a culture of “Opening the Heart”, that is, learning to living on the basis of compassion, love, inclusiveness, environmental awareness and consciously making a difference. It is opening our hearts to our remembrance of what we intuit is possible for humanity. The Festival is the perfect summary of everything that is happening in this tucked away little pocket of mystery and wonder that is called Tyalgum. Many people stumble across the village by chance, only to discover that behind the old world facades and heritage buildings there are worlds of unfolding creativity and delight.
It will be beautiful weekend in the foothills of Wollumbin Mount Warning, with yoga workshops, singing workshops, breathing and movement workshops, environmental awareness talks, demonstrations and films, market stalls, special events and healing through sound, and of course, music performances throughout the village over the weekend.
O’Heart Festival delights in acknowledging and embracing the indigenous tribes and traditional owners of our area, the Bundjalung Nation, and the Minjungbal people. We want to be a part of the healing of what has gone before – moving beyond the past actions of humankind and creating new networks for healing, growth and unity.
This not-for-profit festival will remain a single use plastic-free event with solar powered stages and a zero waste aim, all the while giving people education and encouragement to change little actions that have a big environmental impact.
