What is Waking the Oracle?

Waking the Oracle is creative immersive experiences blending music, interactive art, storytelling, science, and magic for community wellbeing. Weaving the arts and wellbeing together we co-create our positive futures.

Oracles guide us. They are all around us. They are within us. When we gather together and listen with our hearts we can hear them showing us the way. In challenging times they teach us how to move from despair and disconnection to wise action, restoration, and communities of care.

Waking the Oracle is a production of Bakken + Immergent.

What to Expect

Waking the Oracle Pop-up Events combine mindfulness, a chance to connect with others and/or have personal space, time for reflection, and an opportunity for unpressured creative expression. There is no experience necessary, and you may participate as much or as little as you’d like.

Please bring something to write with and a notepad for reflections. We recommend dressing comfortably and in layers in case the room temperature fluctuates.
