Now in its third year, the gathering continues to inspire and raise awareness about sustainable living, reducing waste and caring for our planet through live music, transformative workshops and lectures, learning activities for kids, eco-friendly and spiritually-minded vendors and services, plus delicious, healthy food. This exciting, zero-waste event takes place June 1 to 3 on the grounds of Mount Eden Retreat, 183 partially forested acres in the hills of Warren County.

The Bars are a series of 32 points on the head that, when lightly touched by a practitioner, help release old feelings, thoughts and emotions that no longer serve the participant—even those stored over multiple lifetimes. Accessing the Bars involves accessing consciousness, and the experience is both calming and nurturing.
