Why do we Lovejam?
Lovejam is all about inspiring self-love through authentic creative & emotional expression. We pride ourselves in creating containers of safety through the principle of acceptance. You are welcome to be completely & utterly YOU, in the knowing that you will be held and seen in all your emotional & creative magnificence.
We believe in the power of playfulness to unite & heal. Music is the language which we all speak & playing music has been a way of uniting people from all walks of life since time immemorial. Not only do we play music but we give our playful inner child full permission to express & rejoice. At Lovejam we create safe, relaxed & open containers to allow seeds of change to grow organically.
The Lovejam Campout is a place for authentic connection to emerge. New friends & soul family undoubtedly collide. One key pillar that our gatherings stand on is that of being an alcohol-free space. We have found that the atmosphere & energy of gathering in this way is much more peaceful, wholesome & harmonious, allowing for true authentic relating. We do not judge the use of alcohol, we know for many this is a crux relied on for confidence to socialise, we simply choose not to include the usage at Lovejam, instead inviting all to explore the concept of rejuvenation over intoxication, you wont regret it!
All emotions are valid, we honour the duality between light & dark that exists within and without & encourage freedom of expression emotionally & creatively.
We are stronger united than we are alone. In a society that systematises discrimination & segregation we choose to come together.
The atmosphere & energy at our gatherings devoid of alcohol is something special. Nourishing mind, body & soul on a night out is a game changer.
We believe in a radical new approach to education that encourages self-actualisation. We swap gov't indoctrination for free & forward thinking exploration.
Billions of animals are killed every year, yet we now are the first species ever to be able to choose where our food comes from. We can choose more compassion. Peace starts on our plates.
ACCESSIBILITY FOR ALL
Everybody should have access to an empowered education, a support network to heal & a community to celebrate life with. We invite those with lesser opportunities & create safe spaces.
Race, gender, sexuality, class - we do not discriminate and actively encourage equality. We encourage radical acceptance of our authentic selves and inspire courage in expressing who we are.
We work towards a regenerative society that is resilient, self-reliant, community mobilised & supports our natural ecosystems.
