(2018 dates to be confirmed)
The Being Gathering (formerly known as the Be-In Gathering, perhaps a throwback to the 1967 San Francisco Be-In for the hippie historians among you) is organised by the same team that makes the Boom Festival every two years, and is held in the same location by a lake in central Portugal.
We were a bit nervous to post this festival as it looks great and it’s at the same time as our own very groovy Festival of Creativity in the Czech Republic. But we guess you can make up your own minds which to go to!
The festival organisers say:
“One more time we gather in this beautiful haven, the magical Boomland, to celebrate our connection to the land, to ourselves and our fellow journeyers on this gift of a path that is Life on Planet Earth!
The intention of the Being Gathering is to offer a fun, sharing and safe space for exploration and for grounding into the more meaningful aspects of our lives and existence. The Being Gathering (former Be-In) is a limited capacity event for 5,000 people.
The program spans across 4 days of workshops, yoga, meditation, massages, dance, martial arts, conferences, spirituality, wellness, temazcal and watsu all designed to help nurture your own health, well-being and happiness.”
