ILLUMINATE Film Festival Retreat

Cinema to Ignite Your Spirit

1440 Multiversity 800 Bethany Drive Scotts Valley,CA 95066

Attention conscious creatives! This is not your ordinary retreat. Nestled in the beautiful redwoods of Northern California, you’ll have time to reignite your spirit and empower your heart and soul with the best of conscious cinema.

Brought to you by the folks at ILLUMINATE Film Festival, this mini-festival offers three days of life-affirming, evocative, paradigm-shifting films alongside immersive transformational workshops, filmmaker Q&As, intimate group discussions, and lively evening events.

Ponder your existence and experience radical transformation through 2017’s most profound stories of the human journey through the themes of mindfulness, wellness, yoga, self-discovery, mind-body science, spirituality, ancestral wisdom, conscious eating, and sustainable living.

Plus, you will:

  • Deepen your sacred journey with expert practitioners, healers, speakers, musicians, and new thought leaders in the Reel Healing series: post-screening “View and Do” events that allow you to deeply integrate a movie’s message into your life
  • Connect with trailblazing filmmakers in the emerging genre of conscious cinema and discover new perspectives that will inspire and inform your path
  • Share intentions with fellow seekers at opening and closing ceremonies
  • Joyously celebrate your spirit at lively evening events.

Together, we help create mankind’s greatest leap to awakened consciousness—through cinema.
