4 Days of Magic

Our festival retreat unfolds within the beautiful space of the visionary project “Wir bauen Zukunft”, an enchanted and vibrant 10h large ecosystem in the countryside between Hamburg and Berlin.

For four days we open an experimental space to live a holistic vision of the future that aligns personal flourishing, thriving communities and resilient environmental ecosystems.

A unique experience

You can expect interactive workshops, yoga, meditation, movement arts and many more classes guided by world class facilitators and speakers. Immersive live music, art performances and celebrations turn the festival into a unique cultural and ecstatic experience - without alcohol or other drugs.

A healing and a wellness space and the joyful community make it a retreat to rejuvenate mind, body and heart.

We are a festival. And we are a retreat.

We are convinced that it is important to pause and take a break from the world to see it more clearly. And at the same time we wish to reconnect to the current moment and celebrate life as it is in order to initiate real change.

As Joshua Schrei puts it:

”A festival is a time to enact renewal, cracking us open and then sprouting anew. The festival renews our relationships to the world.”

Our festival journey

We celebrate life and the power of transformative learning and healing journeys.

Self

We begin the journey by cultivating the art of self care, and connecting with a source of wisdom within you. Through neuroscience, meditation, movement, creativity and other modalities, we explore our inner lives, and what it means to live a life at our full potential. Aligning the rhythms of mind, body, heart and spirit, what nurtures us most?

Relationships

The second chapter of our festival journey takes us into the field of connection, communication and intimacy. What does it mean to experience true belonging? How can we relate to others, while also staying truthful to ourselves? What does it take to build a flourishing community?

World

We are an integral part of nature, embedded in the web of life. In the final step of our journey we discover the theme of inter-being. How can we live in a meaningful relationship to nature? What kind of systems truly serve the regeneration of our communities and our planet? What kind of world do we want to create?

Interactive Stages

Embracing narratives and tools from ancient wisdom traditions and latest scientific insights our stages are designed to inspire contemplation, self-inquiry, togetherness, exchange and transformation.

Mind

On this stage we dive into the mystery of consciousness, and explore philosophies of selfhood, identity and mental health.

Heart

Tapping into the healing power of community and expressing our heart’s desire, who are we when we are truly seen and heard?

Body

Grounding our experiences in movement and body awareness, we embrace a philosophy of embodied learning.

Play

Attuning our rhythms through play, and cultivating our imagination to envision the world of tomorrow lies at the core of our mission. Will you join us?

World

Introducing our (own) vision and values into the world and building a new tomorrow. When the vision meets action, do you participate?
