Somewhere in between Coachella and Burning Man lays Lucidity, the earthy-yet-wild assemblage in gorgeous Santa Barbara, California. Steeped in a narrative inspired by Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey and other theories of developmental and transpersonal psychology, Lucidity's overarching themes of personal, community, global, and universal transformation are found in every activity, learning session, and uplifting performance throughout the weekend.
This year's theme was Rising Dawn, which "marks the beginning of a new day and a new story." The festival wants everyone to write this new story together, which in turn creates a collaborative community of festival-goers year-round. As it moves into 2019 with the theme of Moon's Eye View, and Re-Generation Earth in 2020, the unfolding story will only get deeper and more complex.
