Our location for the 2010 Festival is Berea College, Berea, Kentucky. Berea is right off I-75, about 40 miles southeast of Lexington, KY.
Berea College has a distinctive mission and history, which fits perfectly with our "Bridge Builder" philosophy. Founded in 1855 as the first interracial and coeducational college in the South, Berea charges no tuition and admits only academically promising students, primarily from Appalachia, who have limited economic resources. Berea continues to build upon a distinctive history of 150 years of learning, labor and service, and find new ways to apply their mission to contemporary times by promoting kinship among all people, serving communities in Appalachia and beyond and living sustainably to conserve limited natural resources.
We have a fantastic lineup of instructors with Paul St. John (also our keynote speaker), James Waslaski, Judith DeLany, Laura Allen, Brita Ostrom, Linda Kramer, Eeva Vahla, Terry Norman, Tina Allen & Claire Marie Miller, Ruthie Piper-Hardee AND.....YOGA comes to the WMF this year with Linda Kramer (Sudevi)!
