The Better Angels Festival
“We are not enemies, but friends…the mystic chords of memory will yet swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.” Abraham Lincoln said it more than 150 years ago. From July 3 – 12, a community of beautiful Los Angeles volunteers are living those words at The Better Angels Festival, an experiment in generosity, kindness and sharing. Each day, in the Historic Filipinotown neighborhood of LA, a roster of kind healers — physical therapists, reiki masters, masseuses — will donate their services to all who need them. At night, the Festival offers free live performance events, including a concert by Charmaine Clamor and the debut of “MK Punky’s Better Angels.” The entire schedule is posted online, where you can reserve appointments and tickets in advance. Or just show up. The Better Angels Festival is for everyone who wishes to connect with her higher self.
