Intro


 

 

Here Comes a Brand New Flavor in Your Ear, a music and lifestyle festival and conference of Ideas, Sounds, Wisdom, Wellness and Wonder.  

 

EXW is a weekend filled with world-class speakers, workshops, music, inspirational art, wellness, comedy, technology and human connection.  

We explore the intersection of Eastern and Western, Modern and Traditional Music, Wellness, Wisdom, Culture, Thought, Film, Art and Technology.

Our next event takes place in San Francisco

November 11-13

  We keep it real with workshops, talks and panel discussions during the day and we keep it live with DJsmusic and performances in the evenings.

 

Would you like to receive updates about East Meets West? We’ll keep you updated about ExW news.  We only send out emails to let you know our events are happening, we won't fill up your inbox with a bunch of whackness you don't need.

Who Should Attend

Who Should Attend


Who Should Attend?

You want to have the experience of going to a music festival, but you don’t want to go to the desert or the woods, and you don’t want to be expected to dress up in crazy or expensive clothes, and you want the talks to be given by really bright, awesome and well-educated people, and you just want to meet fun and nice people who also happen to be into the things you're into, and you want to learn a lot, and you also want it to be a part of a movement to permanently alter the course of history.

You meditate in the morning and then you hit the club in the evening, but you would never actually say that you "hit the club", and you probably don't even actually go to clubs because they are usually pretty lame, but you are a fun person, so you know what we mean here.

You are interested in health and wellness and want to learn how you can improve the quality of your life and those around you.

You do yoga but don’t live by it and maybe find yoga scenes a little unapproachable (or let's be real, downright scary) or you are realizing that it is ground hog day at Yoga to the People and you need a new routine (and better music) (We love you YTP, we really do, we just need more than you can give us at this point).

You are hella fabulous.

You experiment with supplements, diets and herbs, having no f****** idea what you are actually doing.  You know who you are.  We see you.

You get acupuncture so much that you could needle yourself.

You exist in the liminal space between health consciousness and health unconsciousness, detoxing and retoxing according to your various commitments and brokeness.

You like to hang out and socialize with friends, and maybe you drink, maybe you don’t, but you don’t care whether or not other people do or don’t.  Live ur life, grl.

You are looking to connect with the larger community of wellness professionals in a modern, fresh, contemporary setting, and you are looking to make this information accessible to the world.

You are a leader of some kind, but not just ANY kind, looking for concrete tools you can use to improve your health, emotional well-being, or personal and professional development, because being cool and nice is the best.

You work hard (LIKE OX!), harder than you should, and suspect that you want to add something meaningful to your life, and you also want to get your act together enough so that someone would actually want to date you.  How long has it been since you've gotten any?  Be honest.
