Beloved 2019

September 24, 2019

Over 2,500 people flocked to Tidewater, OR in mid-August to share a weekend, daring to dream a different dream of community, belonging, and being. This was not only my first Beloved, but it was my first festival ever. I learned about it from a friend who had attended in the past and my curiosity was piqued.

The campground was safe, well laid out, and properly staffed. At first it felt a bit overcrowded, but once I settled in and connected, everything seemed just right. With three stages featuring worldwide music, there was always something new to explore. Great workshops ran all day and I participated in two chanting workshops and experienced deep sound healing by the lake.

My favorite musical discovery wasClimbing Poetree, two fiery Latinas who delivered an imaginative and inclusive multimedia performance. Their song "Being Human" brought me to tears and I was promptly hugged by those around me.

With everything from live painting, art gallery, art installations, workshops, education, youth programs, yoga, mindful movement, dancing and laughing, Beloved 2019 was a life-changing experience I will treasure dearly and I am glad it was my first festival ever.
