Join us for the Alighten’s 3rd Annual Summer Festival!  This is the 5th anniversary since the creation of Alighten by our host Amber Wright.  Attendees are invited to come for the whole weekend of Rest, Restore and Envision at the Forest and Pond Centre.  We ask for a donation of $100 from each adult attendee to help fund our programs at Alighten.  Guests may register using the form at the bottom of the page.  We are a private member association and grant a temporary membership for guests to participate in the Festival. 

On Friday August 23rd we are hosting the Envision Workshop, where we go through a process to collectively envision the future we want to live in. This workshop is hosted both online and in-person in the Cabin in the Woods.

On Saturday August 24th is the Festival!  We have vendors, music, activities and experiences in the Meadow in the Forest.  Schedule will be updated as things find their place: 

  • music every evening
  • speakers
  • presentations
  • areas of activities in the fields
  • outdoor games

On Sunday August 25th is Alighten’s first ever Annual General Meeting held in a Sociocracy format.  We are growing and value our members' feedback, ideas, advice and hearing about where we are at in our projects and in life!  Become a member to join our meeting on Sunday.

About the space:  This year our festival is hosted on the beautiful Forest and Pond Centre located just Northeast of Duvall, Washington.  It is always cooler on this hill during the heat of summer.  Orchestrated by the lovely birds and frogs and the tall trees will welcome you in to camp under the stars umong wildflowers, occasional mosquitoes and good company.

About the Music on Saturday:  From 6 to 9 pm we will hear the The Zipper Chimps: Eva Stokes (songwriter, singer, pianist), Matthew Miller (drums), and David Sterling (bass)  https://evaactonstokes.bandcamp.com/  They are playing with special guest Karyn Michaelson. www.karynmichaelson.com
