Inaugural Rainbow Bridge Festival set to take place June 26-28

UPPER LAKE – The premiere of a new music and arts festival will take place later this month.

The Rainbow Bridge Festival is set for June 26, 27 and 28 at 10568 Bachelor Valley Road, Upper Lake.

The organizers say the festival is intended to bring people together through a common experience, involving a connection with nature and valuable interaction with community expressed through music, yoga and healthy lifestyle exploration.

There will be workshops and demonstrations on green building, gardening, alternative energy and yoga, with drumming circles and activities for children.

A main component of the festival will be performances by world-class performers, including Pato Banton, the Annie Sampson Band, Elijah Emanuel, Mitchell Holman, Karma, Levi Huffman, Rootstock and Side of Blues.

Speakers will include Jeane Manning, author of several books including “The Coming Energy Revolution” and “Breakthrough Power.” Manning will share information and compelling stories about brave inventors and breakthrough technologies from around the world that are green and sustainable. She makes the case for open sourcing, clean energy inventions such as magnetic motors, zero point energy, water-as-fuel and other new paradigm advances.

Harvey Wasserman, author of “Solartopia, Our Green Powered Earth,” will share his wisdom and vision of making the bridge to a solarized world. Wasserman's widespread appearances throughout the major media and at campuses and citizens gatherings since the 1960s have focused on energy, the environment, the truth about nuclear power, United States history and election protection.

Another speaker will be Anodea Judith, whose books include “Wheels of Life” and “Waking the Global Heart.” Judith holds a doctorate in health and human services, with a specialty in mind-body healing, and a master’s in clinical psychology. Her best-selling books on the chakra system, marrying Eastern and Western disciplines have been considered groundbreaking in the field of transpersonal psychology and used as definitive texts in the U.S. and abroad.


The festival also will pay tribute to the late Marla Ruzicka, a Lake County native and human rights activist who died in Iraq in April of 2005.

Kevin Danaher of Global Exchange, who knew and worked with Ruzicka, will speak about her, and also will present ideas from his book “Building the Green Economy, Success Stories from the Grass Roots.”
