This just in from The Do Lab:
It is with heavy hearts that we are unfortunately announcing the cancellation of this year’s Rise & Shine Gathering. Refunds for all ticket purchasers will be processed by beTicketing this week. We are truly grateful for your support.
This is an unprecedented decision for The Do Lab and one that we did not take lightly. We set down on the path to Rise & Shine with excitement and a strong belief that our community was primed and ready for a 3-day yoga, music & education festival. We still strongly believe in the original intention for Rise & Shine and the beautiful event it is destined to be, but after 4 months of immense preparation and promotion, we have come to the conclusion that the time is not yet right for this particular event.
The support of our community is a very vital aspect in us creating fun and inspiring Do Lab events, but the level of participation necessary for Rise & Shine to happen at this point in time is simply not there. We are learning and growing from this valuable experience, and will apply those lessons to improve all of our upcoming adventures going forward. We have really learned the importance of starting small and leaving room to grow together with our wonderful and supportive community as your participation and feedback are so vital to us.
Rest assured that we are bouncing back from this experience stronger and more focused than ever. We will be pouring our creative energies into all of our upcoming events, particularly The Great Convergence this December and of course Lightning in a Bottle, which will be the highlight of 2013.
We feel endless amounts of gratitude and love for all the sincere support that you as a member of our valued community have shown us and we look forward to many more incredible adventures together for years to come!
With love and respect,
The Do Lab
