Through the ages, we have called upon the One for Whom we yearn in countless ways, through myriad of names. The term “The Beloved” embraces all of these names and forms of the Divine, affirming their unity.
Beloved is also a 4 day camping, art, and music festival on the Oregon Coast. We intend to present sacred music to help eradicate the illusion of separation from each other, from the earth and the Beloved.
We believe that the presentation of diverse expressions of sacred music at a single venue demonstrates their common Origin and our shared relationship as a global community of contemporary devotees.
Through spiritual practices, we listen to the Divine communicate in the language of the Divine: through art and music, we express to humanity in the language of humanity. Each tradition communicates the Mystery and Love of the Divine in the language of a people, place and time. The current emergence of electronic dance music is for millions the language of their people, place, and time.
