Liner Notes: Soaks, Sounds and Sustainability at the Coyote Festival

The city of Paisley is best known for one thing - it's down-home, country-style Mosquito Festival. The Mosquito Festival is the only event other than city council meetings listed on the city's Website. But this weekend, Paisley plays host to a new event, the Coyote Festival, a three-day celebration of music and environmental sustainability.

The Coyote Festival is a summer solstice celebration held at Summer Lake Hot Springs. The event provides workshops on everything from drumming and yoga to lectures on solar and biodiesel power, recycling and alternative building products. There's also a film series by the Bioneers, a national environmental group, and a showing of two films by environmental videographers.

Among those performing will be Taarka, Moon Mountain Ramblers, Organik Time Machine, The JJ Band, Leif James, The Sweet Harlots, Julie Southwell, Mosley Wotta, Tyler Spencer and others, including several members of local group Coyo who helped engineer the festival.

What started out as an idea to play music in a great location quickly grew into a full-fledged festival as more people heard about the event and wanted to participate. The Coyote Festival will also feature music, food and craft vendors, camping, camp fires, drum circles and access to hot springs. All of the festivities are happening less than five miles away from the site where archeologists discovered the remains of the oldest living human on the North American continent. Sounds better than celebrating the infestation of winged instruments of torture to us. - Shelby Harwood

  • The Other Half of the Yoga Equation

    The Source Issue 45 (Nov. 10) contained wonderful information about the forms of yoga offered in our vicinity. Most of the information covered pertained to the socially enjoyable forms of yoga enjoyed by the folks who use yoga mats and bendy posturing as they concentrate on improving their blissful breathing techniques. These physical forms of yoga are the beautiful compliments to the mental, mindful and meditative forms of yoga that balance the larger yoga (yogic) equation. Yoga is basically a non-denominational practice aimed at balancing the physical (body) existence with the meta-physical (mind) reality. The ensuing mind-body balance creates the union required for an increased "understanding" (consciousness) of the "living experience."

  • Walden's Corporate Servitude

    In the time-honored American tradition of peaceful civil disobedience, I am proud to be one of eight Central Oregon citizens arrested on December 5 in Congressman Greg Walden's Bend office. At our January 26 trial we plan to present a compelling defense. This act of dissent follows years of futile attempts to encourage the Congressman to hold open, unscripted town meetings accessible to a majority of his constituents. The Congressman has grown so suspicious of impromptu encounters with ordinary citizens that on Saturday he required a Bend Police Department intervention that enabled him to enter the Water Project meeting at the Chamber of Commerce through the back door. (Greg, we are nonviolent people who believe that democracy thrives on open dialogue and transparency; there is no reason to avoid us.)
