15. - 18. June 2023
Naturpark Schlaubetal, near Berlin



Wow, what an experience. What an incredibly powerful journey of healing, connection, softness, love, growth and celebration! 

Together, we dived into our raw authentic vulnerable selves, and experienced what it means to be truly at home in our bodies, on this earth and with each other. Pura Vida 2023 reminded us that the whispering promises of a new tomorrow are already here - in the vibrations of our humming voices, in the rhythm of our freely dancing feet, in the pouring rain on a ground that longs for water. 

It is spaces like Pura Vida that bear the secret of birthing the more compassionate and connected world. We are filled with so much hope - and look forward for everything to come.

The Family Space

As a community festival, this year we are exploring an innovative, needs-based building block concept for integrating parents with children of ages from 3-12. Together with participating families, we are co-creating a family-friendly community space. While many of the workshops and festival activities are family-friendly, we also provide childcare during workshop times.

The Healer's Space


The Healer Space is an oasis of calm on the festival grounds where you’ll be able to connect with facilitators offering one-on-one massages, bodywork, coaching, energy healing, as well as a variety of other healing sessions for the mind, body and soul.

The healer team's mission is to empower and guide festival-goers to find the capacity to heal within themselves and dive deeper into the ethos of personal development and awakening that is at the core of Pura Vida Festival Retreat.

Cuddle & Empathy Space

Reset, Resource, Revive.

The Pura Vida cuddle & empathy space is the place to be on a festival to reconnect with self as well as with others. The space will offer daily guided self, diad and group cuddle sessions as well as a continuously available team of trained individuals. The team has different specialities in embodiment, breathing, meditation and guidance through emotions and trauma and are there for you whenever you need!

The space is free for anyone to come anytime, take a breath, cuddle, rest or to be held and seen.

Wellness Space

Sauna & Whirlpool

In a huge team effort with Klingemühle we have been building a sauna in 2022 that awaits you to sweat and detox within the flavours of different nature infusions that will be provided by our wellness angels. Next to the Sauna we have a whirlpool that invites to relax, connect and replenish.

Glamping Tents

In the first years we have been organising pre-setup Glamping tents by ourselves to provide an affordable sleeping upgrade, but it proved to be a crazy amount of work and we were also not experts in this field. Because sleep is very important we will provide you this year with significant upgrade: The Glamping area will be provided by Domo Camp. Check out their amazing offer and treat yourself with an extra bit of comfort immersed in nature. Plus: They provide the option to rent standard tents, that have been rescued from other festivals that you can rent, if you don't own a tent or prefer to travel with less luggage.

Book Glamping Tent

The Pop-Ups

To offer you an extra level of enchantment, we offer you a sweet selection of surprise pop-up experiences, such as talks, poetry readings & sound journeys, that take place throughout the day at a variety of hidden nests by the lake or in the forest.

Food

After some challenges with the concept of a food market in the past we decided to implement a new concept. This year we will have one big kitchen, that will serve the same food for participants, crew and artists. With this new concept we will ensure to nourish everyone perfectly well with amazing delicious vegan meals and affordable prices.

If you want to actively co-create, then please check out our options to volunteer, or become part of the team.
