The 9th Annual Festival of Life - transforming consciousness in the year 2012!!  Saturday 29th September 2012

Philosphy of the Festival

Festival of Life (FOL) is a non-sectarian, non-profit network of dedicated individuals who are working co-operatively towards helping inform, educate and promote the benefits of healthy diets and lifestyles. In an age of ever increasing sickness and obesity – aggravated especially by the predominance of junk and fast food, drug use, stress, environmental pollution etc in modern culture - FOL aims to present to the public alternative modes of living which enhance physical, mental and spiritual health rather than destroy it.

Concomitant with individual ill-health, the environment is suffering as a consequence of, among other things, a consumer-orientated society, lack of respect for the beauty of our countryside and wildlife, ignorance of the dangers of modern farming practices and land management and our dissociation from more natural ways of living.

The Earth is reaching a crisis point in its ability to sustain ever-increasing numbers of people with an ever-growing demand for material goods and services. Now, more than any other time in history, is it necessary to implement changes for the benefit of present and future generations of humanity, as well as for the preservation of natural habitats and wildlife diversity.

The essential message of FOL is along the lines of “feet on the ground, head in the clouds, love in the heart". We particularly celebrate the benefits of raw, vegan, live food.
