The Awakening at Home: Online Day Retreat & Mini Festival of Wellbeing Free


Awakening festival

The Awakening Festival of wellbeing, self care and connection should have been taking place on the Isle of Wight in June but instead is holding a free virtual festival next Saturday (27th June, 10am-6pm), with plenty of speakers, meditation classes, yoga and sound sessions. And it’s totally free.

Throughout the day on Saturday 27th June, you can join with some of The Awakening’s wonderful speakers and teachers to honour your wellbeing, self care and connection.

From morning through to evening you will be able to join any online session you wish to.

Each session will be running on the hour from 10am through to 6pm, and you will be able to enjoy a mix of yoga and movement, Qoya, meditation, inspiring talks, sound sessions and more, as well as a special opening and closing ceremony.

All sessions are completely free, and will run on the hour throughout the day and you can connect in from the comfort of your own home via Zoom.
