What people said about 2023

A Festival that gave you more

The festival atmosphere was electric, charged with excitement and a sense of serenity. Amidst the abundance of knowledge and insights offered, the Wellbeing village stood out as a vibrant hub, drawing crowds of eager participants. In addition to the captivating content, the village now featured rejuvenating sessions of yoga, breath work, and meditation, further enhancing the holistic experience for festival-goers.

As the morning's exhilarating activities unfolded, individuals sought solace and respite in the nurturing embrace of the Wellbeing village. Here, amidst the vibrant backdrop, there was a multitude of transformative experiences. Puppies, known for their innate ability to spread joy, took centre stage, captivating the hearts of visitors and providing a welcome respite from any lingering stress. Eager participants lined up, their eyes brimming with anticipation, awaiting the opportunity to hold and cuddle these adorable furry companions.

Simultaneously, skilled masseuses worked their magic, employing their expertise to release tension and restore balance to weary bodies. Massage stations became havens of tranquility, beckoning festival-goers to step away from the bustling crowd and immerse themselves in moments of profound relaxation. The queues grew longer as word spread.

Alongside the allure of puppy therapy and blissful massages, the village now also embraced the transformative power of yoga, breathwork, and meditation. Participants were invited to embark on inner journeys, exploring the connection between mind, body, and spirit. Guided by experienced instructors, individuals found themselves engrossed in yoga postures, synchronising their breath with movement and cultivating a profound sense of presence.

Meditation sessions offered moments of introspection and stillness, where the festival-goers could retreat from the external chaos and immerse themselves in the sanctuary of their own minds.

Within the vibrant tapestry of the festival, the village served as a reminder that amidst the excitement and chaos of life, it is essential to pause, connect with oneself, and nurture the body, mind, and soul.
