Welcome to the Blue Monkey!

In the summer of 2022 the Blue Monkey opens its gates again and welcomes you to dance, heal and connect together as a tribe!

We are gathering in a non-judgemental space where everybody is allowed to come with whatever is present for them at the moment. Let’s nourish ourselves and each other with real heart connection and community…

A Place for Healing and Connection

There will be Ecstatic Dance, DJ sets, soundjourneys, concerts, morning yoga and transformative workshops from the fields of Breathwork, Meditation, Trauma Healing, Inner Child Work, Shamanism and more. But it is not meant as mere entertainment or spiritual workshop hopping. It’s first of all as a place for healing and connection. It’s a festival for people who love to dance to great club music and meet nice people but who also need some quiet and calm time to heal and restore.

Line up & Program

Blue Monkey 2022 Program

Morning Tribe Groups

Every morning we meet in small tribe groups in which you can share and be heard with whatever comes up for you. Already before the crisis most of us didn’t get heard enough. More than ever we need to be seen and be really listened to and we are going to give this to ourselves and each other. We have experienced the circling groups as incredibly healing and transformative. They foster a deep connection with the people from your festival family. These are your festival buddies with whom you can share whatever comes up for you during the five days we spend together.

Selfcare

Festivals can be busy and we offer a lot of activities – so please chose where you want to go – or just go with the flow. Take good care of yourself. Take time to rest and integrate. There is a huge forest just next to the venue. Go for a walk. Connect with nature. Dive into the lake. Let nature heal and purify you.

Healing Space: Sauna, Bodywork & Massages

The Healing Space will be held by an amazing group of healers and spaceholders that will take care of you if you need empathy during the gathering. Our healers Anna, Hanna, Thomas, Dana, Simon, Aline & Manu come from the fields of Panta Rei, Shamanism and Bodywork. They also offer massages and individual sessions if you want to go deeper.

Sauna

From the afternoon until the night our Monkey sauna will be hot and running. Our sauna master is going to pamper you with aroma oil infusions and fragrance journeys…

A highlight will be definitely the nightly sauna sessions, accompanied by some soft yet danceable DJ sets/ Live Acts. In order to help covering the costs, we ask those that want to use it to pay a one time fee of 10€ at the Check-in on Thursday or Saturday directly to Torge. You will then receive a sauna wristband and can use it as often as you like during the festival (bearing in mind that we are many that will be sharing the sauna during the festival).

The (cold water) showers are just right next to it. Please don’t forget to bring yourself extra towels for the sauna. We don’t have any here…

Keep it Clean – Respect Nature and the People

We feel blessed to celebrate at this beautiful place in nature with the forest and the lake nearby. Please let’s all help to protect the eco system and keep the whole area clean: the festival premises, the land nearby, the forest, the lake and the village of Leuenberg. We are grateful that the people who live in the village trust us and sympathize with our little healing festival. Let’s all earn their trust and show them some respect!

Leaving no Trace at Venue, Forest, Lake and Village

You will receive a garbage bag at the Entrance/ Check-in. There will be a garbage separation station and litter bags at many places at the premises. Please take your own garbage to the garbage trailer at the camping after the festival. We separate plastic/ cans (yellow bags), paper, glass and all the rest (black/blue bag). Please don’t leave any garbage at the premises or anywhere in the village or forest.

Important Information about Sanitary Facilities and How to Protect the Eco System in Leuenberg

There are cold water showers and toilets at the premises. You can also pee into the bushes inside the premises (without toilet paper!) but never outside or in the village please.

Under no circumstance use any toiletries like shampoo or shower gel at the lake!

At the showers within the festival premises you can use shampoo and shower gel. But we ask you to bring only ecological toiletries. Some will be provided for you as well. And please be mindful and never use any products at the lake since this destroys the sensitive eco system. Thank you for your awareness and for helping to protect the nature!

The Blue Monkey

In the Mayan Dreamspell astrology the Blue Monkey stands for the inner child and its innocence, curiosity and playfulness. These are the qualities in us that we celebrate.

Our values are to foster play and friendship in a non judgemental space in which we can be just as we are, in our perfect imperfection, nurturing and empowering each other.
In our experience this naturally brings about transformative processes and creates deep connections.
We aim to co-create a space which you can enter even alone and exit with the feeling that you made some new friends and heartfelt experiences.

Let’s all share the love, dance, play and connect!
