The end-date of the Mayan calendar's 5,125 year cycle on the December solstice of 2012 has become a major focal point for ideas about planetary change. While some may view this as a catastrophic end, fueled by economic, social, and environmental crisis, a unique opportunity exists to harness this global attention into an event that celebrates the essential unity of humanity, and all life. UPLIFT 2012 is an event created to celebrate this rare moment and herald the birth of a new paradigm of consciousness.
Given that Byron Bay, Australia is one of the most eastern points in Western Civilisation, it will be the first continent to welcome this new chapter of global cooperation and co-creativity. We invite you to join this unprecedented event from December 20-23 for open discussions of science, wellness, art, music, ecology, indigenous culture and the wisdom of youth.
