Music is 4 Lovers has been attending the Lightning in a Bottle Festival for years now, and one of our favorite reasons why, aside from the music, is the Lucent Temple of Consciousness. The Do LaB’s mission, above all, is  to create an experience as art and to bring communities together. The Lucent Temple of Consciousness is one of Lightning in a Bottle’s signature features that do exactly that, bring the people of the music and lifestyle communities together in one place over art and culture. Some of the centerpieces of the Lucent Temple of Consciousness are the yoga workshops and the host of guest speakers covering topics in the fields of health, wellness, activism, spirituality and so much more.
