The sun shone on the first-ever Byron Spirit Festival, which took place in venues all over Mullumbimby during the weekend.

A plethora of yoga classes, tantric workshops and dance experiences took place inside, while outdoors at the Spirit Village, music and chanting rang out, massages were had, chai was sipped and auras were balanced.

Festival organisers estimate more than 1,500 people participated in the event over its three days, with each evening culminating in a concert.

As we wandered through the festival we asked the question ‘what does spirit mean to you?’ and received a surprising range of answers.
