The Soneiro Sanctuary
Since 2016 we have been bringing yoga, meditation, sound journeys, women´s circles and consciousness work to festivals. Since 2018 we started to curate full festival stages with our conscious program. In 2019 we created and curated a full stage and conscious area ourselves.
Working overtime, skype calls with the festival organizers, vintage and decoration hunting in Pushkar and Rishikesh (India), hours and hours of planning, crafting and creating the vision.
It came to life… THE SONEIRO SANCTUARY.
What is the Soneiro Sanctuary?
The Sanctuary is the next step in the conscious festival experience. It is an integral team of facilitators, sound workers, artists, technicians and spaces holders bound together by a passionate approach to create a one of a kind space. Our Sanctuary becomes an oasis for you to explore, an aesthetically curated laboratory for conscious practice.
We provide you with the complete package: a curated program, aesthetic direction, set designs, decoration team, sound technicians, wide network of collaborators, booking of facilitators and music, performances of renowned sessions, professional communication and and experienced team.
The idea and purpose TO BRING CONSCIOUSNESS TO THE FESTIVAL
Our intention has always been to bring awareness outside the “bubble” - we highly resonate with conscious festivals. But if we are honest: on a Festival where there is a lot of conscious work already happening, the impact of our partical work is not very high.
We want to inspire people to explore the conscious world, to slow down and to look inside themselves. And this is what we did. Many times we receive after our summer tours messages from people who are now on their holistic path, who are restructuring their lives, bringing in more awareness about their impact; aligning their lifestyles to their own values and choosing a healthy and more honest approach on life. This is what makes us happy!
For our Sanctuary Stage the intention is to host an all-encompassing program with morning Yoga, Qi-Gong, Ecstatic Dance, Sound Journeys, Chakra Meditation, Men’s and Women’s Circles and Talks
Bringing consciousness work to music festivals has been a calling for us for the past 4 years, creating a space where people who have never tried yoga or meditation, can feel free to explore, learn and open up in a safe setting.
The Creation of the Soneiro Sanctuary Program is a core element of our work. The aim is to transfer both: knowledge and experience, therefore we are always creating a schedule that brings together body mind and spirit. Our program offers not only Yoga (Vinyasa Flow, Yin Yoga, Kundalini, therapeutic Laughter Yoga and much more), but also Meditation, Qi Gong, ceremonial and ritualistic sessions, same as philosophical Talks, Women´s and Men´s Circles, Debates and creative sessions.
& Immersive Experiences
We create a sonic ensemble, featuring members of our core team and invited guests, that brings different worlds together into our sensory experience. Deep sound journeys utilising binaural beats, live looping, ancient instruments and modern technology fuse together with aromatherapy, subtle touch and sacred ceremony. We offer an artistic and holistic experience curated by an experienced team with integrity.
Never before has information been so abundant and accessible like it is nowadays, which makes it even more difficult to distinguish relevant and trustable information from misguided interpretations. We feel Festivals are the perfect occasion to bring light into topics like: Shamanism, the philosophy and history of spiritual practices, altered states of mind, holistic life coaching etc. This capture was during a Talk by cultural scientist and historian Alisa Reimer and the topic was: The phenomenon of Shamanism: heritage of traditional practices and contextualization of modern practices. People always show a great interest to sit down, listen, learn, ask and share their own experiences. We feel a Festival should not miss intellectual content and the chance to open the mind through inspiring talks.
THE SONEIRO SANCTUARY AT NIGHT
In the evening our Sanctuary lights up as a safe haven, illuminating the surrounding nature and hosting an expansive program. Downbeat live sets, ecstatic dances, spiritual music and mystical jams bring us through the night.
Our Incredible space - visualised and brought to life by our talented team and co-creators
This was the team for our last Soneiro Sanctuary in August 2019. What an amazing experience, to cocreate consciously together, learn and grow. Our slowly but steady growing team is bringing together different disciplines, backgrounds, artistic practices and influences.
