Join the Festival!
With the Feeding the Soul Transpersonal Festival we want to present and celebrate the multiplicity of the manifestation of the true Self. We call on you all, professors of transpersonal psychology and academics across all disciplines, professionals, students, artists, musicians and performers from around the world, and of all ages, to join us with your heart in your hands (as we say in Milan). Based on a culture of sharing, please give up your keynote presentation ex cathedra, leave your powerpoint at home, but bring your experience, tell us your histories and stories, and let us share our souls with each other. We call to this circle all generations: Little ones, youngsters, sons and daughters, grandchildren, and students of life. Come and present yourself, your dream, your needs, your fears, your skills, your passion, your insights, and your creativity. What comes into my mind is the so-called rainbow family who meet twice a year for an entire cycle of the moon, living in nature without any comfort, technologies, devices, or drugs. Instead they gather to share their knowledge and experience of life for free; or the 40,000 young people that attended the Boom Festival in Portugal last August. Let us come together with such an intention to gather, share, and create change. We are waiting for you, each of you counts!

FEEDING THE SOUL, the 2015 FIRST TRANSPERSONAL FESTIVAL of the European Transpersonal Association (EUROTAS) will take place in Milan, Italy, the city of EXPO 2015, from 18th to 21st June 2015.

With this event, we aim to come together as a community of diversity, to transcend divides and unite through deep dialogue within, with each other, and with nature by including puer and senex, heart and mind, spirit and matter, the young and the elders, women, men, and children—our future generations.
The Festival Venues will be in Milan City (TBA) and in Centro D’Ompio. The main Festival Venue and Accomodation will be at Centro D’Ompio, Pettenasco, Italy, an international seminar center and hotel (http://www.ompio.org).
Change the World or Die? Ready to be the Antidote?
“My son, 25 years old, put on his skype mood message the sentence: “Change the world or die.” The world seems to be waiting for something. The humankind is in trouble. The times they are achangin’, as Bob Dylan sang. Could the integral and transpersonal culture as Jim Garrison says “be the antitode” to the troubles of this world? As Ervin Lázsló suggested, don’t make war, don’t kill anyone, don’t destroy the planet, instead give us tools and experience to be in contact with our true
self. Transpersonal Psychology has the vision, the cartography, the literacy and technologies to navigate through the territories of consciousness. With the First Transpersonal Festival, we call for the transpersonal in action, and we aim to initiate transpersonal action around the globe. We want to look into each others faces and say: I see you, my friend! You touch my soul, your hand makes my heart beat, your words light the fire of my soul. Only together can we make the world better what we like to call the New Renaissance: The transpersonal in action such as sharing, performing, teaching, learning, talking, communicating, creating, living and loving.”
