About 2015

Somara Shamanic Medicine Forum is a two day conference occurring in Byron Bay on Feb 7&8, 2015.

The forum will include a wide variety of individual presentations with local and international speakers, as well as a number of panel discussions.

Somara will occur at Starseed Gardens in Byron Bay, Australia and will include:

– A visionary art space curated by Katia Honour.
– A live music performance on Saturday night with Darpan.
– Market stalls with plants, clothes, books, food and drinks.
– Wood fired pizza, herbal elixirs and more at the Lotus Teahouse.

Somara will run from 9am to 6.30pm on Saturday Feb 7 and Sunday Feb 8, with the live music performance from Darpan beginning at 8pm on Saturday night.

Somara is a portmanteau of the words Soma, the fabled ancient plant medicine of the Vedas, and the word Samara, the botanical term for a winged seed.  Put simply, Somara is the winged seed of Soma.
