Episode 3: NEW WAYS OF THE SACRED
Mythos * Ritual * The Sacred
Episode 3 explores the “New Ways Of the Sacred” that have emerged in Transformational Festivals, including how they re-instill a sense of MYTHOS for participants, or an awareness of our role in a greater multi-dimensional reality and story; fulfilling the functions of RITUAL once common for traditional societies and often missing from contemporary urban life; synthesizing into an authentically third millennium spiritual culture that is experiencing and honoring THE SACRED as a community without dogma, doctrine or charismatic gurus.

Episode 4: GROWTH EDGES OF EVOLVING CULTURE
Gender Alchemy * Re-Indigenization * Re-inhabiting The Village
In the final episode of our first season, THE BLOOM explores the current learning curve of Transformational Festivals in “Growth Edges of Evolving Culture”, through exploration of the themes of GENDER ALCHEMY, a cultural process seeking to find balanced, healed and honoring gender relations that unite the powerful medicine of the divine feminine with an emerging model of the divine masculine; RE-INDIGENIZATION, how transformational festivals support an honoring and deep connection with the earth, and the way this is catalyzing a cultural re-encounter between neo-tribal festival communities and representatives of indigenous communities in right relationship; and RE-INHABITING THE VILLAGE, how outdoor festivals are answering the need for experiencing the deep community connections of the village, and the growing number of festivals consciously becoming multi-generational community gatherings.
