Enchanted Forest Gathering, Laytonville, California (June 8-10, 2018)
At Enchanted Forest Gathering, you will feel as if you were placed in the middle of a storybook set in the mystical Black Oak Ranch up in Mendocino county. This intimate festival creates a hard-to-replicate atmosphere that is crucial to the organizers; they've developed four overarching tenets—sacred, sexy, silly and saucy—that every aspect of the festival must fit into. These qualities come through in the music lineup, the performance and visual art, the many wisdom shares and workshops, and all the micro-environments that invite participants to explore and play. From shower foam parties, to an entire stage devoted to talks like the "Conscious Carnivore" and "The Sensual Art of Spanking," to live music and thumping booty bass stretching into the wee hours, Enchanted Forest provides a no-judgment zone for you to do you and to figure out what that even means.
