You’ve likely experienced the mysterious phenomenon of Deja Vu. The feeling can be like peering into the vortex of an infinity mirror, memories reflecting endlessly into, and from, a distant unknown. Some say that in these moments, we are experiencing the memory of a forgotten dream. Others contend that our brains, in all their complexity, are actually anticipating imminent experience and projecting it inwardly just moments before the experience happens. Popular storytellers have referred to Deja Vu as an indicator of a nearby tear in the fabric of reality, a “glitch in the matrix”, if you will. While we may not be able to put a finger on what Deja Vu actually is, we can celebrate its mystery, and call forth a deep inquiry of the labyrinthine nature of our inner spaces. While Lucidity Festival has been all about waking up within the dream, Deja Vu explores the dreams we dream while awake. The Invitation of your Life-Not-Lived:
Arrive to Deja Vu in the embodiment of your Life-Not-Lived. Who would you be if you made a different decision once upon a time, if you followed an alternative timeline back in some Otherwhere? Or who and what would you wish to be if all the constraints of our Life-Lived were not concerns. Our Crystal Ball Oracle will help you identify this Life-Not-Lived. We invite you to remain in this character for the entire weekend. Experiment with dropping deeply into a different persona and way of being completely. See what magic unfolds as a result.
Imagine this Scene, See it Well: A crisp Autumn fog settles over the valley. Caravans of mystics, magi, creatures, and seekers arrive to the gathering grounds, casting their incantations and preparing camp. They erect a humble yet mystical village, filled with the smells of far-away fragrances, moon-charged crystals, and fabrics from fabled lands. These wanderers are arriving because they received a special call, the same call that you received, to participate in the Labyrinth Games.
After a wondrous opening ceremony full of theatrical delights, you are invited to dance the night away or adventure deeper into the mysterious Deja Village, where the Oracle Tent resides. Inside, secrets of the Universe are revealed, riddles are riddled, and a few courageous souls will be initiated and honored for their good work. As an initiate, you will wear the mark of success around your neck in the form of a gifted pendant. Find fellow initiates wearing a pendant that has a symbol matching your own and you will have found your Game-Twins. Together with this newly discovered Game Kin you are invited to co-create a theatrical answer to an deeply puzzling question… indeed there is something for you to solve together, and figuring out what it is is half the fun! Do well and you might just be crowned the winner of Deja Vu, which comes with an overflowing abundance of loving esteem and a valuable reward!! Don’t despair, lucid dreamer, stay inquisitive and enthusiastic and trust that the details will be revealed to you in proper timing.
