Sacrededge 2022

What a weekend it was! After three years of absence, it was wonderful to feel that Sacrededge vibe once again.

Here are some comments:

Wowsers, what a festival!!
Thank you so much for having us, just digesting all the amazing magic gathered in this sacred space – so much love and appreciation to all who made this possible and kept going through uncertainty and hardship. Incredible work.
Kerryn Fields, Presenter.

I really didn’t know what to expect coming in to these 3 days, but I was really amazed by the Sacred Edge Festival… The whole weekend I was in an atmosphere of inclusion and support that is just opposite to what is happening politically at this time, and it made me so glad to belong to this community.
Allie Beckhurst, Presenter

There is no other single event that has had such a transformative impact on us and we would not miss it.  To have an opportunity to meet those beyond our experience changes us in ways we could not have imagined. This is a faith community that really gets it, empowering the wider community to also make a difference.
Don and Helen Bartlett, Participants

…thanks for the awesome Sacrededge Festival that you gestated so successfully, inspiring many so many people to share the journey as presenters, volunteers and/or audience/participants.
Paul Cykner, Volunteer

Thanks so much for having me. You’re a beautiful mob and I just am so honoured you allowed me to be a part of your weekend. Much love. Xoxo
Scott Darlow -Presenter

I wanted to deeply thankyou for this weekend. It was such a beautifully filling time for me as well as pouring out. I really loved it. Thanks for your persistence in bringing this festival to the world over the last few years. I think everyone was really moved by it. THANKYOU!!!
Joel McKerrow, presenter.

I was moved by the deep sense of community created by the festival, and how attendees brought a genuine desire to inquire and learn. …  (One participant…) said the festival “felt like a hug”. What a wonderful space to have created for people at such a challenging time in our collective histories.
Isabelle Tolhurst, Participant.

Sacrededge is our response to a sometimes harsh and fearful world. It is an opportunity to connect with people from diverse backgrounds. Rather than debate and argue about issues Q&A style, this unique festival listens to people from the edge… their stories, music, poetry.

Our presenters, artists & performers come from a range of backgrounds – Indigenous, Refugee, LGBTIQ folk, Carers for the Earth and Ocean. They are the voices from the edge who are vulnerable and not normally heard.

With a bunch of people from different spiritual traditions and none, people who love stories, justice, ideas, music and the arts, community is created.

Sacrededge is a lived experience of how we can treasure each other in all our glorious diversity and find our hearts and minds expanded and enriched.

What People Say about Sacrededge...

Thank you for all your magnificent work for Sacred Edge. Your vision and commitment are truly profound. We are all the richer for being part of the weekend. I learnt so much, and feel quite restored. I know many people contribute to the success of such events, we are indeed blessed. Thanks again, it truly was a celebration.  Maryann Brown

Just wanting to say I had a wonderful and life changing weekend with you all . It far exceeded my expectations amazing speakers and a loving and warm atmosphere. I can assure you I will be back next year.  Janette James
Brilliant weekend.  So many highlights the tremendous speakers, fantastic music (especially watching the Wilsons with Sam and Maeve) great venue, such a welcoming group of people, the homemade  chocolate hedgehog, great place to stay. Jon Graham and Belinda Jack
For all the talk of diversity, inclusion and welcome, rarely have I experienced the unique mix that this festival, in its fifth year, offers…There’s a little bit of magic happening down by the water…xxx…  Daniel Witthaus
Thank you Sacred Edgers for another inspiring weekend to challenge our preconceptions, widen our horizons and deepen our faith (and of course for the planning and hard work) and to all those who made themselves vulnerable to our insensitivity and misunderstanding we are deeply grateful.  Don Bartlett
