2:00-3:00pm,Civil Liberties, Personal Freedoms and Exercising Your Sovereign National and Basic Human Rights By: Andrew Struss

Topics will include the Patriot Act, NSA surveillance, etc. Presenter is a past United States Air Force Field Detachment Trainer to the Chilean Armeros, and Minnesota Libertarian Party U.S. Senate campaign manager

 

3:00-4:00pm,Kratom, Introduction to this Miracle Botanical By:Eli Woods

Kratom is an Indonesian plant closely related to coffee. It is the subject of some debate among Americans. When ingested it can relieve stress/anxiety; in larger doses it can be used as a pain reliever. Some tout its benefits and other question it’s safety and effectiveness. Come learn about the foreign plant Kratom, or share your knowledge.

 

4:00-5:00pm,Astral Projection: Advanced Methods By Tico and Kiara

From the latin meaning “to throw oneself to the stars,” astral projection is a broad term encompassing various forms of out-of-body experiences and meditation methods. Here we look to delve beyond the basics of the shamanic journey and offer specific techniques and tools to guide you through your astral voyage and enhance the spiritual benefits of your out-of-body experience.

 

5:00-6:00pm,Drum Circle! Bring an instrument and come jam! By:Chris Grundel

Bring an Instrument and Come Jam! – In addition to the traditional instruments, such as drums, bongos, tambourines, moraccas, etc., practically anything can be made into an improvised percussion instrument; if you didn’t pack your congas, find a stick and a bucket and join us for an orchestrated rhythmic adventure. As the universal language, music (especially rhythm) contains the power to bring people together in a shared experience of fun and life-affirmation.

(Times may run up to 30 minutes behind schedule.)

11:00am-Noon,R.A.V.E Act, What is it and How Does it Affect You? By:Eli Woods

The Illicit Drug Anti-Proliferation Act, commonly referred to as the RAVE Act, gives federal authorities the power to significantly fine an event for knowingly and “intentionally profiting” from drug use. This vague language has been interpreted to mean that festival organizers cannot provide drug education or safety services. Some argue that this contributes to deaths from ecstasy and other drug-related complications. Come learn about the Rave act, it’s implementation, and the movement to amend or remove it. Discover what types of education and services can’t be provided at events, and discuss the potential effects of this legislation.

 

Noon-1pm,Elemental Astrology: Seeing Signs as Elements By:Tico and Kiara

Seeing Signs as Elements – This fun workshop will examine the Four Elements and the ways in which they interact, as well as relating a person’s individual personality to these elements.

4:00-5:00pm,The Law of Karma By:Geoffrey Wertheim

Like the ripples created by a pebble tossed into a pond, our actions often have far-reaching repercussions that may exceed our immediate understanding.
