Festival Retreat 2021


With a seed community of more than two hundred participants we brought to life the Pura Vida Festival Retreat. A summer highlight for many, our first gathering in August 2021 outside Berlin was more than we could have ever dreamed of. It was full of magic community, joy and connection. Thank you to everybody who co-created this with us!
