¸.•*11/11 – Shaping Fate (keynote meditation on 11:11pm)
Eleven is the master number of creativity. 11/11 is a message from Spirit that our time of childhood as a race is yielding to young adulthood, and we are being offered lessons in world-creation, the arts of ethically and aesthetically evolving our personal and collective futures. CHI KA GO founder John Sacelli will present a half-hour of interactive and participatory numerology explaining the principles of 11/11 as the creative guideline in the process of Shaping Fates.

¸.•*Kirtan Unification (Devotional Mantras)
Girish (Music and Mantras)
It is an honor to be hosting this internationally touring world music artist, teacher, and author, Girish who will be joined by Devi2000, Marla Shuman, Tatiana Sanchez, and other Chicago Kirtan artists. Girish followed an unexpected path—a seeming detour to live as a monk in an ashram for five years that inadvertently nourished his musical artistry. Here, he studied Sanskrit as a means to understand the deeper meanings of ancient chants, which sparked a life-changing event that led him back to music—and to combining music with Sanskrit chants.

¸.•*John Simmons (Vocalo Radio, Style Matters)
Celebrating 25 years of Soulful House Music and one of our favorite DJs in the community. The son of a DJ, he was influenced early in life by the soulful and eclectic sounds played at home. Having a solid foundation in Soul/R&B, Disco, ’80s music and early Hip-Hop/Rap, John became immersed in the early 1990s by the dance/electronic music that he continues to share in the community.

¸.•*Xane Daniel (Lightworker Righteous Comic Book Series)
The country — the world — is splitting in half. On one side, we see a rise in caring for each other and all life. Unfortunately, we are also seeing more bigotry, selfishness, anger, fear, and conflict than ever before. Entertainment is a great way to bridge that gap. If we can enact change on an individual level during leisure time, then we have a chance to awaken the masses!

¸.•*Jane Justice (Numerology/Sound Sessions)
Numerology is the universal language of numbers, and each of us was born with a set of numbers unique to us. These numbers unlock the door to the depths of our personality and reveal the way we interact with others, lessons we’ve yet to learn, opportunities we’ll be given and challenges we’ll face at specific periods of our lives — or throughout life as a whole.

¸.•*Joe Gagnepain (Live Painting)
His career as a full-time, freelance artist started in 1989. A prodigy of sorts, Joe was doing life drawing as early as sixth grade. He began high school in St Charles, IL and finished at the Chicago Academy for the Arts, an independent preparatory high school for the performing and visual arts
