A wave of transformational gatherings is sweeping across California-from the steadily growing Lightning in a Bottle and Symbiosis Gatherings to the newer Lucidity Festivals. Serenity, a new event, aims to add to that list by celebrating the Aries new moon with an excellent lineup of music, art, and workshops spread over 3 days at the beautiful Zaca Lake Retreat center. Soundscapes will be crafted by The Polish Ambassador, Thriftworks, Bluetech, and more. This is a true festival, with music only one of many possible experiences. The first 3-day ticket tier starts at $80, with a special Christmas-day special of $65 (now til the 25th, that is). Get them while you can.
