Escaping the daily grind may hold its challenges, but Colorado offers a bountiful array of events and culture intended to bring us back to our roots. In this way, I found myself at Vali Soul Sanctuary in Boulder, a center offering workshops, classes, ceremonies and gatherings for those looking to rekindle their souls and connect with like-minded people who search to benefit themselves through positivity.
Here I encountered Taylor, the lovely lead singer of the reggae band, Hosanna. The band is hosting an event called “Boom!” on the last Friday of every month at the Vali Soul sanctuary. Their intention is to celebrate community enlightenment. They hope to bring people together to enjoy music in an environment focused on spiritual experience rather than intoxication and popularity.
Hosanna wants to create music not solely for the purpose of entertainment and enjoyment, but also for the promotion of a positive lifestyle through the use of meditation, love for the environment, natural food, while respecting the purpose of Roots Reggae. The event runs on donations, and all are welcome. One can expect guided meditation, yoga, and a drum circle. The night will then be concluded with the uplifting music of Hosanna.
If you are interested in attending Boom, head to the Vali Soul Sanctuary on the last Friday of every month. The event begins at 6 p.m.
Vali Soul is located at 6717 Valmont Road in Boulder, Colorado. The hosts kindly ask for RSVPs to be sent to (720)-556-2020.
