WALKING THROUGH THE FLAMES OF PAIN AND TRAUMAS LEADS TO TRANSFORMATION

TRANSFORMATION FESTIVAL IS A CELEBRATION OF THE OVERCOMING OF TRAUMA AND VICTIMHOOD.
THIS WALK THROUGH FLAMES COMES IN MYRIAD FORMS AND SIZES, FROM PERSONAL TO INTERNATIONAL. 
 

EVERY SINGLE JOURNEY FROM VICTIMHOOD TO TRANSFORMATION CALLS FOR A WORLD-WIDE CELEBRATION.

 


Through art we come aware of our feelings and who we really are. Art is the voice of transformation. It does not judge, and it does not step back or hide it self. It expresses and shows, and it seeks the truth and the present. 

 

When we speak out, a natural process of healing has already begun. When we dare to share the personal stories that have victimized our personal freedom -  power of traumas and victimhood can turn into personal potential in the present life. 

We are building an international community, and we are inviting YOU to participate. Traumas or not, this is valuable for all who seek a positive relation with life. Please join us in the journey towards a consciousness humanity.
