The Ripple Effect is a new yoga festival hosted by Wide Arts National Association in collaboration with Yoga Studios and Healing Practitioners in the South Okanagan.

This one-day festival will take place the day after Summer Solstice, Saturday, June 22nd, 2024 at Linden Gardens in Kaleden. Throughout the day there will be a selection of offerings that showcase the amazing studios, facilitators, and healers in the South Okanagan. It is a day to learn together, create community together, lift each other up, and create ripples of kindness, love, and compassion in our communities.

This is a not-for-profit event.

ALL proceeds will be divided between Wide Arts National Association (WANA) and Desert Sun Counselling. Both organizations develop much-needed programming in the South Okanagan and the donation to these not-for-profits will further help in our goal to ripple out love, kindness, and compassion through this event.

Why have we called it the Ripple Effect?

When looking at the state of the world, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Global warming, war, poverty, greed. Sometimes it feels like a tsunami of negativity is coming at us from all sides and it takes all our effort to keep afloat.

How do we combat that sense of overwhelm? How do we affect positive change?

It starts with us. It starts with taking care of ourselves. It starts with healing ourselves so that we help others on their healing journey. It starts with loving ourselves so we can love others. It starts with having self-compassion so that we can have compassion for others.

It starts with turning in, being mindful, filling ourselves with love through yoga and the healing arts, through community and friendship, through learning and growing.

It starts with a ripple. The act of caring for yourself ripples out into the world and affects everyone you come into contact with. When enough of us make ripples, we get waves. When enough of us are riding the waves of kindness, love, and compassion, those waves turn into tsunamis of love. This is how we create change. One ripple at a time.

It starts with you.

The ripple effect.
