Fuel for the soul…
It’s what we do…
SEE—> Real live human beings creating highly skilled unscripted music and movement adventures on the fly. It’s coming to you FREE and unedited- COMPLETE WITH EXCITING MISTAKES and ASTOUNDING RECOVERIES!!! Stirred up at a volume so very reasonable that you can bring friends, have a conversation, and STILL HEAR YOURSELF THINK. Plus, the rhythms are so groovy and melodic that you might even forget what you were talking about anyway. It’s good food, good vibes, and good art to refresh your soul, feel human, and float your boat on through the week. Sometimes we all need an infusion of humans making magic without a plan.
There is no cover charge for Rhythm and Dance In-Fusion at the Olive. Our currency is connection. Guests are encouraged to purchase food or beverages, to help compensate the Olive and balance the energy exchange involved in running the event.

Desert Moon Circle will present the Opening for our Circle, and this magic is not to be missed!
Bring your offerings of chants, spoken word or song, your drums, rattles and percussion instruments, photos of your beloved dead for the Altar, plenty of water to drink and some big bottles for the water altar to share, finger foods that don’t need to be refrigerated to share on the food altar, chairs, blankets, a flashlight and warm clothing…Please DO NOT BRING pets, firearms, alcohol or drugs onto this sacred land.

Bright Hawk presents Handpan Sound Healing- Conversations with our Ancestors
7:00 PM @ The Las Vegas Enlightenment Center 5795 Sandhill Rd., Suite B Las Vegas, NV 89120 BrightHawkProductions.com
Donations of $20 or more appreciated (no one will be turned away for financial reasons)
Find full event details here.
An expansive ancestoral handpan experience intended to deepen your relationship with spirits & guides that are waiting with messages just for YOU, from the other side. All of us have the ability to have a deep meaningful relationship with spirits on the other side – blood related, old friends, and other ancestors that are with you for other reasons. Hollis Taylor, a medium and exorcist for 15+ years, along with Bright Hawk’s handpan vibrations help us to awaken our senses to the potential conversations with our ancestors. Hollis’ experience with many cultures and unique ways of creating this connection is the groundwork for personal holistic relationships with the other side. Bright Hawk offers the handpan instrument to help us easily connect with these guides and to soothe any unease that may arise. At a time that the veil thins and the ability to connect is easiest than any other time of year this duo offers this unique, intense, and inspirational experience. Hollis and Bright Hawk together will take participants on a journey to empower conversations with ancestors on the other side, on this night, but also in our future. Although Hollis may potentially bring through messages for participants, this workshop is intended to empower personal conversations and relationships with ancestors on the other side with individuals that find themselves with the desire to open these doors. This event is instructional and experiential and will allow for a discussion after the experience. Participants are encouraged to bring a small personal snack to eat before driving home.
