Redefining “Stillness”

October 29, 2018 Events / Whats On No Comments Email Email

The AT ONE International Festival is an event for the celebration of culture, with rich and fun activities that connect the mind, nourish the body and rejuvenate the spirit.  Enjoy performances that stir consciousness, exhibitions that inspire creativity, workshops that encourage learning, experiential bazaar of artisanal offerings, and a food fair that wakens the senses.

Whether you want to learn for self, commune with your family or friends, reconnect to nature, or simply sit back to enjoy performances, there is something for everyone.

When was the last time you paused to observe what was going on within you and around you, commune and be present with your family, hang out and meet new friends, or have some ME time?

We wake up and check our phones every morning instead of collecting ourselves and delighting the onset of a new day.

Our relationships increasingly lack connection as we seek validation from distracting social scenes streaming from our phones.

Authentic needs become displaced with externally validated wants.

And clarity of who we genuinely are blurs as we merge with the external chatter instead of centering within the internal calm.

Against the backdrop of the scintillating noise – how do we internally still so that we are truly AT ONE with ourselves, our family, friends or nature?

Discover, learn, grow, evolve your relationships with self, others and nature. It all begins with awareness, awareness elevates your consciousness, then life evolves and creativity arises.

Join us from the 9-11th November at Sangha By OCTAVE, to explore a holistic way of living.  OCTAVE is inspired by an international fourth-generation family business owner, dedicated to the pursuit of clarity for individuals, families and organizations.

Through the modern definition of Chinese culture which blends the wisdoms of East and West, OCTAVE facilitates clarity within ourselves and extends the self-harmony into external relationships around us.
