The Organic Sculptures of Nature Dreamweaver

For anyone adventurous enough to hike up to the Meditation Lookout, a riddle of a sculpture known as the New Earth Star Temple (NEST) can be found blending organic materials and human ideas in a seamless interweaving of spirits and ideas. This space is designed as a sanctuary for peace, mindfulness, contemplation, healing, and grounding amidst the wild excitement of the festival. Some who go there find rest, others find a scenic view of the landscape and a few even find new friendships that form around shared wonder. 

For Nature Dreamweaver, the artist who creates the NEST, tribal elements represent cultures and mysticism that once held greater importance in our society. As a reminder of the pervasive power found in nature, Nature Dreamweaver and his dedicated team of NESTARS have for eight years given LIB-goers the gift of meditative space with mandalas, sculpted formations and earthy fragrances. Participants at LIB can ascend to find themselves in an instructional meditation, an interactive theater experience or in an enthralling conversation with one of the cultural leaders or educators at the festival.


According to Nature, “The intentions of the space are to create a magical mystical medicinal reality that helps people connect to the earth, the universe, and each other. Whether you’re watching the sunset or the sunrise, the team of NESTARS hopes your realize what a wonderful and beautiful world this one can be.”

Don’t miss it!
