If you’re into exploring the Brooklyn Underground Art & Music Scene, you will really enjoy this event called Gratitude Migration! It’s an extraordinary waking life experience.
“Gratitude turns what we have into enough!”
Gratitude Migration unites the most creative group of people – many being true Brooklynites, to participate in a hard-to-describe outdoor event. It’s an awakening that takes place during three entire days where you are immersed in a fantastic community of like minded people.
We like to say it’s a different experience within the Brooklyn underground art and music scene.
To start, the event is hosted in a New Jersey beach, with a breathtaking view of Manhattan! Not too far, but not too close. It’s as if you extracted yourself from reality and saw everything from a different perspective.
The rules behind this event, being on a newly resorted beach is: “Pack it in, Pack it out!” Everything taken to the beach, must be taken away at the end of the three days, leaving the place better than before. Their environmental awareness is definitely worth spreading. Plus, they work with the goal of reducing, re-using and recycling.
The event is based on 4 important principals:
- Positive Transformation: Working compassion and the power of gratitude
- Human Connection: Universal Oneness comes from compassion, connectivity and empathy
- Creative Expression: Using art and creativity as a means of healing and expression
- Mindful Living: Daily practices of awareness and positive action
In other words, unlike from other events around the globe that you know what to expect, Gratitude Migration offers an experience with continuous surprises.
The local community open-heartedly shares their talents with the guests. On the other hand, guests feel deeply grateful for having the possibility of being part of it all. The exchange is fantastic.
Therefore, be ready for: music, participatory artworks, yoga beach camping, family camping, fine dining, meditation, oceanfront cabanas, fire performances, great music, workshops, bazaar with different vendors and much more.
It’s surely a priceless, liberating and unique adventure that will definitely expand your consciousness .
So, open your heart, connect, declare your dream, be super grateful and have fun!
“Gratitude is our currency: As we all practice counting our blessings; we start to feel better and better, all the time. We are honored to serve as a channel for bringing people together to practice and experience the power of gratitude.
Moreover, we are delighted by the love, joy and open hearts of each and every one who co-created this experience. Creating community, forging connections, expressing creativity and building an ongoing culture of consciousness, we are profoundly grateful.”
In addition, tickets will give you access to the on-site camping location and all activities within the event. It does not include, food, drinks and any other equipment you might need for camping.
If you don’t know where to start to rent a tent, they have further information about that on the website, so don’t worry! Lastly, our experts can also help you plan your adventure! And last, if you’re in the spirit of doing service, contact them to volunteer in the event.
