1:45PM – MY TECH ADDICTION: CONQUERING DIGITAL NOISE
Raio (Rob Weber) is a co-founder of the BaliSpirit Festival and resident DJ for the legendary ecstatic dances at the Yoga Barn in Bali, where he also leads sacred cacao ceremonies, chanting circles and sound healing journeys, and produces music in a mystic jungle studio.
After graduating from Stanford University, Raio got called to the path of yoga and meditation in his early twenties, when he also began vision-questing in the American Southwest and making pilgrimages into the Andes mountains and Amazon Forest, working with traditional healers, participating in sacred ceremonies, and traveling deep into the wilderness within. These travels eventually led him to Bali, where the Balinese culture of devotion has continually softened and opened his heart.
Inspired by his journeys to create sanctuary spaces and evolutionary events for an earth-centered, spiritually connected contemporary lifestyle, for over a decade he’s stewarded an eco-community in Bali, where he also co-founded BaliSpirit Festival.
BaliSpirit Festival is a pioneering innovator in the “transformational festivals” space, a new generation of events inspired by a value system that celebrates life, personal growth, social responsibility, healthy living, creative expression, and participatory culture. BaliSpirit Festival offers a world-class workshop lineup focused on spiritual practice, movement arts, and contemporary sacred ceremony, along with a high-vibe, spiritually inspired music lineup. The highly participatory festival generates a field of elevated frequency, catalyzing community, connection, inspiration, healing, and Love.
A respected leader in the ecstatic dance and contemporary ceremony communities, Raio was on the road the past summers touring in Australia and Europe including appearances at key transformational festivals including Boom Festival, Being Gathering, Sound & Silence Festival, Obonjan Island Festival, BaliSpirit Festival, Byron Spirit Festival, Bhakti Yoga Summer Festival, and the legendary Club Lite in Amsterdam.
He just released his debut EP “Pachamantra Vol. I” available at raio.bandcamp.com
