The Bliss Fest gathering brings together community to drum together, chant together, eat together and most of all, practice all kinds of yoga together morning, noon and night! This year because of our troubling times, they're offering a variety of classes in Yin Yoga, Kundalini Yoga and Meditation, Svaroopa Yoga, Reiki, Silks, Sustainable living and Permaculture--all in nature, all together, on a family farm.
In order to thrive and persevere through these tumultuous times, we need to step away from our day to day and create a new way of living, a new paradigm of peace on earth. Now is the time, to awaken our group consciousness and to pool our energies and intentions to uplift ourselves, our community and our planet.
The number of participants will be limited so register soon!

To help scientists understand the monarch migration, they put tracking tags on the monarchs they are able to catch. Kids of all ages are welcome. There will be a 1-2 mile hike through the park to find butterflies and tag as many monarchs as possible. Butterfly nets will be provided, but if you have your own, feel free to bring it. Please note that monarch populations and migration patterns vary. On any day you could see many, few or none. No matter how many you see, we’ll learn about why monarchs and other butterflies are fascinating, their importance and how we can help them. Cost $8. Register online.
Proceeds support Tennessee Butterfly Monitoring Network, a research and conservation project of Zoo Knoxville, and Friends of Seven Islands State Birding Park.
