If you want to spend a day that is like being in Paradise, the right place for you is the „ Ibiza Spirit Festival“. It will be on 29 of April 2018, on a magic island where the sun is always high. Jerry Brownstein is the organizer of the festival, and he will tell us more about this amazing event where they create the power for personal and global transformation. The beautiful Ibiza Spirit Festival offers you the opportunity for inner transformation and good vibes.
WHAT IS THE IBIZA SPIRIT FESTIVAL?
Two times every year (May and October) the people of Ibiza come together as one, to share in the Joy of our true Spirit, and to create the power for personal and global transformation. Our vision is to create a day of joyous celebration that shows us how beautiful life can be… how together we can generate the energy for positive transformation… in ourselves and in the world. We are dedicated to raising global consciousness by bringing the awareness of alternative lifestyles and individual transformation to our beautiful island so that Ibiza becomes a shining example of humanity’s highest potential.
SPIRITUAL FESTIVALS ARE MOST POPULAR WORLD-WIDE. WHAT MAKES THE IBIZA SPIRIT FESTIVAL UNIQUE?
The energy of Ibiza is unique and wonderful. This same energy has made Ibiza the dance capital of Europe for 40 years. At the Spirit Festival we experience the essence of that energy which is freedom… freedom to find your true self and make the world a better place.
At this inspirational event the people of Ibiza gather together for a joyous celebration of how the special energy of Ibiza can open people’s hearts and minds to new ways of thinking and being.
WHEN WAS BORN THE IDEA OF THE SPIRIT FESTIVAL?
I have been teaching, writing and speaking about consciousness for many years. I was also an organizer for other festivals, and in 2013 my wife and I along with a close friend decided to do our own Festival. We call it the Ibiza SPIRIT Festival because it reflects the special Spirit of this island.
WHAT CAN VISITORS EXPECT ON 29 OF APRIL 2018? WHAT IS THE PROGRAM FOR THAT DAY?
The Festival will highlight all of the essential elements of the Ibiza Spirit with amazing events happening all day from the opening at 11:00 right through the Ecstatic Dance Party at night. There will be Creative Dance, Tantra, Inspirational Talks, Meditations & Workshops, Alternative Therapies, Yoga classes all day in different styles, Oracle Readers, Ceremonies… and some special surprises. Music will be the messenger in Guided Meditations, Singing Circles, and the healing sounds of Live Music that will fill Atzaro all day and into the evening. Of course there will be delicious food & drinks to add to the celebration, and a Magical Children’s Garden created with Love for kids of all ages.
THE FESTIVAL WILL HELD IN ATZARÓ ON IBIZA. CAN YOU DESCRIBE US THIS PLACE?
The name ATZARÓ conjures up a vision of graceful elegance nestled within the natural splendour of endless orange groves. With its stylish fusion of Balinese and Ibizan design, it is perhaps the most beautiful place on the island…a place where interesting people from all over the world come to enjoy themselves. It is also a cultural centre that gives the artists and designers of Ibiza a wonderful venue to display their talents. From the very beginning Atzaró has been an invaluable supporter of the Ibiza Spirit Festival, hosting our events at their marvellous venue with the help of their amazing staff who work tirelessly to help create the Magic of the Festival.
CAN YOU TELL US WHAT THIS FESTIVAL BRINGS TO PEOPLE.
The best way that I can describe it is what a woman said to me at the end of the last Ibiza Spirit Festival:
’It was like spending a day in Paradise!’
We want people to feel the Love that is their true essence. Whether you spend the day at Yoga Classes, Workshops, Dancing, Therapies… or you just sit in the exquisite garden feeling the loving energy all around you… Whatever you choose, you will feel something special… and hopefully take that feeling with you… and be inspired to make your life more beautiful.
