Things to be Aware of
Our venue does not allow dogs, including emotional support/comfort animals. ADA qualified service animals registered with ticket purchase are welcome if trained/in-training and actively working (undistracted and on task, not interacting with the event or attendees). If a claimed service animal is off task, disturbing or interacting with the event or attendees we may communicate with the ADA about a potentially false disability claim.
This is a vegetarian event.
If you bring meat items for yourself please eat them discreetly at your campsite or car. Do not bring meat to the dining or public areas, or call attention to its presence.
Recording and Photography
For informational and artistic purposes, elements of this event maybe recorded, video-taped, or photographed. All attendees agree to this. Likewise, all people doing such documenting are asked to act respectfully and with no sense of entitlement, as such privileges can be taken away.
The ‘Us vs Them’ Mind-set
The ‘us vs them’ mind-set, with its attendant blaming, shaming, and guilting, is pervasive in mainstream culture and media, and we are all to degrees conditioned with it. However, as the universe eternally and inexorably seeks wholeness, any judgment of others keeps us in a creation-loop with them, gives energy to what we seek to separate from. When we do not try to change those who do not wish to change, educate those who do not wish to be educated, or ‘pop anyone’s bubble’ that does not want their bubble popped, we are free to put our energies into being the ‘change we wish to see in the world’. We then become an example to others that invites participation, rather than a disturbance that invites resistance. This event is alive with songs that soften the heart, that can help resolve this mind-set, with the vibration of compassion for ourselves, and by extension others. If you are feeling especially phlegmy with ‘us vs themy’, seek remedy with such songs, and seek out such circles. We strive to keep the event well stocked with them.

The manna from the Almighty
Clean hands and a heart so pure . .

The ethos of Plants enChant
We consider Plants enChant as part of a larger culture of Peace. We hold that Peace in the world can only come thru cultivating Peace within. We offer this event as a retreat, where one can do the work of self-reflection, of self-understanding, in a supportive community of song enthusiasts.
