Our Stages

Mind

Our inner worlds hold many secrets and great power. On the mind stage we become aware of these - and learn tools and methods to change and shape the fabric of our perception and wellbeing. In the middle of nature, we meditate and dive into the mystery of consciousness, discuss and explore philosophies of selfhood, identity and mental health. By training our minds we cultivate an accepting, kind, and compassionate relationship towards oneself and others.

Heart

Our heart - the center of love, compassion and forgiveness for ourselves and others. It holds deep and profound truths... What happens, when we dare to open it, listen to its whispering melodies, tap into its power and express its greatest desires? With heart-opening breathwork sessions and practices of authentic relating, compassion and kindness, we aim to support the cultivation of an ethic of love through which we can walk through life and act more benevolently and generously.

Body

At the body stage, we tune into the sensations of our physical selves. Experience yourself as the marvelous sentient being you are! Become aware of the rhythmic rise and fall of our breath, the subtle tingling in our hands, the rhythmical beat in our chest… Yoga and other embodiment practices invite us to not only meet and release old pain with gentleness and curiosity but to also develop a heightened sense of self-awareness, emotional regulation, and a deeper trust in the wisdom and resilience of our moving bodies.

Play

To play is an essential form of our true nature. Play worships the present moment, it allows a space to try, fail and learn without judgment. And it is through play that we unlock our imagination to envision the new worlds of tomorrow. Come and channel your inner artist! The Play stage is also our big Main stage: During the days, laughter, curiosity, and joy reign supreme through ecstatic dance, painting and other playful experiences, while at night we celebrate the liberation of the human spirit with big ceremonies and blissful DJ-Sets.

World

We are individual beings as well as we are parts of a greater whole. This earth is so much more than simply our environment. On the world stage we dive into experiencing ourselves as one with nature and this universe, sense into global challenges and processes of destruction and transformation - and reflect on our role in creating new visions and values in order to build new tomorrows in a deep and meaningful relationship with everything around us. 
We have always been home here, and it is our birthright as well as our responsibility to become guardians, stewards and caretaker of a flourishing planet.

Systems Stage

The institutions that shape the way we think and act as well as our potential to grow collectively as a society are facing profound changes. What does a transformation of economy, politics, education sector, healthcare, food production, energy industry and others look like that creates socially just and ecologically regenerative conditions? How can we co-create sustainable and life-affirming systems in which the well-being of the individual goes hand in hand with a thriving community and a living planet? These are the questions that we want to explore together on the Systems Stage.

Music and Celebration


We look forward to an eclectic musical fusion of live performances by multi-instrumentalist artists blending traditional, indigenous, folk, and contemporary music from various cultures around the globe with other genres, such as electronic, jazz, classical, or experimental music. Be ready for a unique and immersive, co-created musical experience that transcends geographical boundaries, celebrates cultural diversity and opens the gates to new realms of creativity and feeling.

Our Festival Experience

The Market Space

We are excited to invite a variety of artisans and crafts makers for our buzzing market space! Stop by for an organically produced coffee, refresh yourself with a lemonade or try some deliciously nutritious snacks and sweet treats throughout the day, while you have a look through the jewelry, clothes, incense products and much more handcrafted valuables... Maybe you'll find a special little talisman to always remind you of your unique Pura Vida experience?

Pura Vida Retreat

The Family Space

While many of the workshops and festival activities are family-friendly, we also provide childcare during workshop times, so adults can also attend the experiences without their kids and fully dive into the sessions. At our kids area, children of the ages from 3 to 12 have their own creative playground to engage in various projects. Will they design their own upcycled crazy hat, create a magic dreamcatcher or come up with a completely new game to play together?

The Healing Space


The Healing 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 work, as well as a variety of other 1:1 sessions for the mind, body and soul. The 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 conscious awakening which is a crucial part of Pura Vida Festival Retreat.
