Medicine // A Festival for People & Planet
27 Aug 2020—31 Aug 2020
Wasing Woodland Wasing Woodland, Wasing Lane, RG7 4LY Aldermaston, UK
Now more than ever is the time to seek new narratives, connections, skills, and understanding to rekindle the fabric of the community, redefine culture, celebrate the beauty and wonder of life and help us to restore our home, this sacred Earth.
Medicine invites you to come together to share the power of music and ceremony, the coherence and insights of ancestral wisdom, alongside solutions of modern technology and culture; the nourishment of food; the joy of laughter and celebration; and the inspiration of visionary thought – asking a simple question:
HOW CAN WE BE THE MEDICINE?
Medicine is a registered Community Interest Company (C.I.C). All profits will go to help empower indigenous peoples to preserve and protect their land, traditions, and wisdom. The gathering aims to inspire and empower the deep regeneration of our hearts, our communities, and our world.
It is our vision to:
REMEMBER our authentic selves and innate wisdom
RESTORE our place within nature
REIMAGINE the healthy & diverse societies we need
REGENERATE the planet to assure a flourishing future for all life
Set within the picturesque Berkshire countryside, Medicine will take place on the stunning Wasing Estate, which covers several thousand acres of farmland, and features parkland, woodland, and lakes.
Medicine is easy to get to – located less than an hour's drive from London, 30 minutes from Heathrow airport, and 5 minutes from the nearest train stations (Midgham, Thatcham and Aldermaston).
