THE AQUARIAN WISDOM FESTIVAL
Catalyzing Vast New Realities
Co-Creating Our Bright & Vibrant Future
LIVE BROADCAST airs May 17 - 21, 2021
The old systems & structures of our world are not working anymore, and in fact are crumbling before our eyes ~ Yet the new models have not yet been created.
This the point where we stand today: We are here to architect the future.
We are here to birth radical new perspectives, understandings, and ways of living.
To resurrect tomorrow from the ashes of today.
To co-create a bright & vibrant new foundation for ourselves, for our children & grandchildren, and for all beings on our beautiful planet.
This is an initiatory time! And so, it is natural that:
But we also know deep in our hearts that something very unusual is taking place during these catalyzing times.
We are standing at a brand new threshold.
We must awaken to the fullness of our power within.
Once we let go of previously-held beliefs and limitations, what more is possible?
And where can we find like-hearted souls who are ready to leap out upon this journey alongside us?
Together we will dive into, explore, and uncover the answers to these questions, and many more.
We've designed this Festival to be a safe & sacred space where a global community of changemakers & visionaries (that's you) can gather live & in real time with brilliant experts, thought leaders, shamans, scientists, revolutionaries, and creatives.
YOU are invited to be part of the conversation!
We'll meet via LIVE Broadcast each day from May 17 - 21, 2021.
You can ask our presenters your questions, receive powerful practices, and truly embody the bright & vibrant future that you wish to experience in your own life, as well as for our human collective.
We live in a catalyzing time that is filled with chaos and the unknown.
As humans, we feel comfortable with ORDER! We feel quite uncomfortable with chaos.
We have survived, truly, one of the most challenging years in living memory: The portal of 2020
We know that there are great changes to come, now that we have made it through this narrow passage.
This is a brand new frontier for us.
The rules, regulations, and limitations that we’ve been taught – They need to be released.
The consensus trance that we’ve been indoctrinated in, by being raised in modern society – We must open to ideas & perceptions & realities far beyond this.
All of the previous identities that define who we are and what we are capable of – MUST be relinquished.
We find ourselves capable NOW of infinitely vaster change, possibility, opportunity, and accelerated evolutionary potential than we've ever known before.
In the AQUARIAN WISDOM FESTIVAL,
All topics included in the festival are specifically selected to guide YOU, our beautiful & diverse attendees, to live a passionate, fully awakened life.
Together in sacred space, we will hold creative workshops, lead experiential practices, and guide you into alternate realms where the vastest potentials await.
Let us open up the portals to other realities –
MEET our brilliant speakers and artists!

YOUR HOST & CREATOR OF THE AQUARIAN WISDOM FESTIVAL:
Jocelyn is a Visibility & Thought Leadership coach, Spiritual Alchemist, & founder of Sacred Planet. She shares shamanic and alchemical wisdom to guide courageous seekers in how we can co-create a revolutionary new world in alignment with Mother Earth and the vast intelligence of the Cosmos.
After a successful 15-year corporate career working in finance for major multinational companies, Jocelyn was thrust into a deep spiritual awakening. It was that awakening which turned her life upside-down ... And from which she emerged with a powerful understanding of how to use her intuition and healing abilities ~ Aspects of herself that she'd never had access to before.
She dove deeply into earth-based & shamanic practices, and she has studied alongside elders and wisdomkeepers ever since.
Today Jocelyn coaches visionaries, revolutionaries and change makers all around the world, guiding them to break free from everything that has held them back so they can joyfully offer their highest contribution to our collective future.
One of Jocelyn’s favorite aspects of her work is guiding soul-led entrepreneurs to bring their important mission & message out to a global audience through creating their first online conference or summit. This is truly transformational work which consistently creates abundance, expanded opportunities, confidence, and a deep trust in oneself!
