2014 New Years Eve Slideshow – A Feast of Mythical, Magical, Visionary Heroes & Creatures

At the College of Integrated Philosophy this year, we took the New Year’s Party to a whole new level.  Leave your suit and your tie. Leave your moderate high-heels. The theme was ‘A Feast of Mythical, Magical, Visionary Heroes & Creatures’ and the result was bursting with colour and creativity. We mustered our best ideas and a plethora of fabrics and feathers, beads and paints. We appeared as archetypes, symbols, and inspirational characters. It was a pleasure to discover friends within their brilliant costumes. One notable surprise was Eli Johnson, a spritely wanderer who was moved by the kindness of all the people he met.

The mythical figures were not the only entertainment of the night. Musical performances, story-telling, and dances were also highlights, culminating with drums and the entrance of a mighty, smoky, rhythmic dragon.

Once the dance floor opened, it was a festival in the forest, complete with trees, ferns, and of course, the merriment of three hundred magical creatures. It was an evening never to forget –  not that we aren’t already looking forward to next year.

    I am so wowed, awed, mesmerized, and moved into the magical mysterious, mythical forest of LOVE as I watched this video. The eyes of everyone: they spoke only of softness and tenderness of heart. The eyes: They brought meaning knowing to the Oasis magical forest of the night. The eyes: they moved, they danced, they Loved, they touched one another, they hugged and kissed in couples intimacy……The Oasis eyes spoke through each costumed BEING.

    Thank you so very much for all your labours of love that went into this New Years’ Eve. So much detail in the music, the dance, the decorated hall, the storytelling, the drumming, the d.j, the preparations and the cleaning…the creativity, the leadership, the teamwork, the planning and production, photographs, music, and all that I cannot even bring out. so much beauty from deep places unseen and yet seen. Thank you everyone of you. What an incredible inspired evening for all of US. I love you. Rita

    I just revisited the whole video and feel again awe and joy and gratitude for all the actors and pros of the photos.
    One additional comment, for next year: the decoration of the Hall was very beautiful and majestic – the pictures projected on the large screens, and the stage… I wish we had made kept the photographic memories of these elements – for their beauty, for the acknowledgement of the great work done on the deco -thanks to the teams- and because they contributed a lot to the very special atmosphere of the night.
