“ When we join together in small groups,
festivals and larger gatherings... we hold the
code to more intelligent and loving life right
here among us now.”
- Barbara Marx Hubbard
Some say that the secret to life is to
follow our bliss. To discover what
brings us the greatest joy, and to walk
that path wherever it leads. Some say
the secret to life is to follow our heartbreak. To
discover what cause or great need we would
be willing to die for, and learn to live for it
instead. What if there was a way to experience
the deep fulfillment of being and doing what
we love most, in ser vice of the greater whole?
In this time of powerful, transformative
change, it is easy to become over whelmed
by issues and upheaval in the world. From
economic collapse to environmental crisis, the
challenges we face in so many areas of life seem
beyond the point of no return. We all yearn for
positive change so how can we be proactively
engaged in it?
Imagine a world where each one of us
is called upon to share our gifts and play
our unique part in creating a new story for
humanity and our earth. Imagine a place
where poets and artists meet with scientists
and activists, where indigenous elders gather
with visionary youth. Where conscious
evolutionaries meet with doctors, farmers
and teachers and each one comes to the circle
not to push their own agenda, but to learn,
share and discover what limitless possibilities
emerge when we unify our gifts and passions
for the greater good of all. Where our greatest
challenges are recognised as our greatest gift –
the opportunity to come together and create a
world we love. Welcome to UPLIFT!
Born as a festival of transformation in
Byron Bay, Australia in December 2012,
UPLIFT has rapidly evolved into a thriving
movement of global events, pioneering projects
in service of humanity and the Earth. The four
day festival and global webcast is a dynamic
expression of this convergence, with a full
progra m of keynote presentations, interactive
workshops and spontaneous symposiums,
along with ongoing sessions in yoga, dance,
devotional chant, creativity and evening
performances with international musicians.
“Over the years we have been blessed to
meet so many inspired leaders, pioneers and
innovators,” says Organic India and UPLIFT
founder, Bharat Mitra. “Most of these amazing
people and organisations are working in
isolation and separation from each other.
UPLIFT is about creating a collaborative
platform that allows leaders from many
different walks of life with complementary
skills and wisdom, to come together with the
community and allow fresh creative impulses
to reveal themselves in ways that are bigger
than all of us.”
Combining the gift of intimate live
experience with the power of the internet to
reach the world (through live webcasts, video
production, social media), UPLIFT is a bridge
of conscious intention into real world action,
guided by a fundamental vision of Sarvodaya
‘ UPLIFT is a bridge of conscious
intention into real world
Real World Action
