Four days of friends, camping, dancing, sun, fire, water and more!
July 24-27, 2020 Muskoka, Ontario
Set in Nature
XPANSION gathering is happening at Birchwood Camp, on the shores of Cecebe Lake, just outside Burks Falls, Ontario. The camp is nestled on 15 pristine, lush acres, and is well kept by a loving crew. You'll find plenty of fresh drinking water (free from fluorides), clean outhouses and super positive vibe, starting right at the gates. Welcome home.
On Sunday, we tap into humanity's oldest tradition: dancing around the fire, banging the drum, singing songs and telling stories. The stories are about our past, present and future. The music will flow and fireworks may be seen across the lake¡
Sharing & Gifting
Each and every one of have a unique gift. What is yours? What would you like to share? XPANSION is all about gifting and sharing. This may be a physical thing, like a piece of art, a vegan treat, a chat, a story, a song, or helping out in any way you can. Spread the love!
Frisbee is magic that flies in the air, connecting people, places and time. We play catch and freestyle (no competition). We'll have discs available for everyone to play with and some demos, too.
Yoga by The Lake
Refresh, renew and regenerate your-SELF with beautiful yoga by the lake. The Yoga experiences are designed to empower you and set you free. Bring your mats!
XPANSION gathering is plant-based. We believe that it's the way to go and be, especially within the given context. Bring good, healthy, tasty nourishments and treats that are made from plants (and not from animals). Thank you, love you!
Leave No Trace
XPANSION is a self-cleaning entity. XPANSION leaves the land in an improved state than it was previous to the XPANSION experience. "Love Your-SELF, Love the PEOPLE, LOVE the EARTH"

What is XPANSION?
XPANSION is a state of mind. It is the place inside Time and Space where you feel the most YOU. Living in mega cities, enduring daily pressure, makes is easy to forget who we really are: Infinite Creators and powerful beings , creating their own reality. XPANSION is the place to re-connect to your highest self, and simply, be.
XPANSION is a cozy, comfortable, adventure. We have fresh drinking water, a lake to enjoy, a beautiful campsite, group activities, and late night dance music.
We designed XPANSION to be friendly, loving and easy experience. The campground is wonderful, the water is clean, the trees gently hum in the wind. Just bring yourself, a friend if you wish, and the basics.
XPANSION will unfold for you perfectly.
Be well, see you, we love you!
