IBIZA’S HEALING FESTIVALS
If you’re in need of healing mind, body or soul, and are open to learning about healing then Ibiza has some very special festivals complete with live and electronic music. These all day events allow you to indulge in different healing treatments, take part in workshops and generally dip into the spiritual side of the island and still come home with change from a 50.
HEALING IBIZA REVITALISED
This is a festival of healing, music, performance and art, with 12 hours to check out 12 interactive and inspirational zones, and a brilliant musical sound track including live and electronic music by Ibiza classics and new faces. Interactive workshops take place throughout the day, alongside 1 on 1 mind, body and soul treatments in the Healing Garden, plus group healing sessions and drop in talks at the Immersive healing Zone and Market. The invitation is to inspire the imagination to imagine the world you want to create, at a time when much of the world is in crisis. The timetable is packed with new activities to feed your imaginations – yoga, qi gong, tai chi, meditations – and gorgeous Atzaro food to feed hungry bellies! It’s all about being creative and getting stuck in so expect lots of fun things to do like creating an enormous mandala with Madhalsa Mandalas and painting a huge flower of life the Spiritual Art Community from House Life-Blossoms.
11amdoors open, with the official opening ceremony at 12, closing ceremony at 8pm followed by the headline act until 11pm. Entry is by donation, supporting various Ibiza charities.

IBIZA SPIRIT FESTIVAL
Sunday 2 October, 11am to 8pm
The Ibiza Spirit Festival is all about being the change you want to see, with beautiful workshops and events happening all day, including singing, dance, tantra, therapies, talks, yoga, meditation and natural food & drink. The people and healers of Ibiza come together in the spirit of love for a day of celebration and inspiration, sharing in the joy of your true spirit by opening hearts and minds to new ways of thinking and being. The aim is to create a day of joyous celebration that shows you how beautiful life can be; how together you can generate the energy for positive transformation in yourselves and in the world. The festival allows you to try different healing modalities and treatments and learn from those further down the path. The late summer date makes it a beautiful wind down after summer, and is a great way to make like a local. The Ibiza Spirit Festival is a non-profit organization, and all of the proceeds are used to support this event and other charities in Ibiza.

WAKE UP IBIZA
Dates to be announced.
The Wake Up Ibiza Festival was born from the success of the Mandala Garden, The Zoo Project’s chill out zone complete with drum circles, meditation, tarot, massage and more. The idea was to tempt the ravers into a more tranquil healing zone and sow the seeds of meditation and the other practises and services available. Imagine the Mandala Garden twenty times bigger, with a huge range of therapists sharing their gifts and healing techniques with live music and electronic sounds. Think sacred drumming, healing therapies, yoga and meditations. There are talks and workshops for harnessing your energy, channelling and all sorts of classes yet to be confirmed, in the unique setting of Zoo Project.
