Compass Area Spotlight: The Beacon

We are living in trying times. As our inner compass swings, unhinged, it is easy to resign ourselves to the feeling of being lost and alone. Bursting through the quagmire of darkness, the light of humanity guides us back to connectedness and purpose. At Lightning in a Bottle, a cultural lighthouse guides those seeking community and connection of all forms to its shores. Welcome to the Beacon. As part of LIB’s Compass theme this year, the Beacon’s focus is “Illuminating Our World: Visionary Guidance For Strange Times.” Balancing practicality with mysticism, LIB’s Beacon features an illuminating array of cultural workshops, panels, and rituals that encourage us to raise our voice and assume the responsibility we have to ourselves, each other, and the earth. Join us and discover new ideas, community actions, and unity at the LIB Beacon. Check out the full listing of events below.
