Blue Monkey Festival 2022

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.

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.

The 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 come from the fields of Panta Rei, Shamanism, Bodywork and Massage. They also offer individual sessions if you want to go deeper.

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!

The Blue Monkey

In the Mayan 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!
