After five nurturing years in the arms of Mullumbimby, Byron Spirit Festival organisers are excited to announce they will be moving their festival to its namesake town for its sixth year in 2018.
To be held April 20–22, the festival will span both the Cavanbah Centre on Ewinsgdale Road and Elements of Byron in Belongil.
More than 50 workshops and panels on yoga, music, dance, healing, creative arts, sustainability and various cultural ceremonies are planned.
Co-organiser Kate Little says this year’s theme is ‘We Are the Mandala’, which will focus on ‘co-creation and the concept of human design and our connection to the natural world.’
‘We’ll explore how we can live in the greatest harmony with ourselves and everything else!
‘We are actively seeking to collaborate with local Byron businesses to enhance the experience of our festival visitors’.
Ms Little says the upcoming festival will see, ‘the addition of a number of new workshop streams to the program including conscious relationships, Indigenous culture with local Arakwal custodians and rites of passage for teenagers.
‘And in a Spirit Festival first, the Australian BreathFest on the Monday following the Festival in association with Breath of BlissTM. This will be an opportunity to dive deeply into the transformational power of breathwork!’
