Zen Festival nurtures the health and wellbeing of the individual, our community and the land we walk upon. 

We gather to listen to each other and the land, share yarns by the fire, take time for silent self-inquiry, get our hands in the soil to grow food, share wholesome meals, wiggle our bodies, wobble our voices and relax into the moment.

Join us to honour the past, celebrate the present and prepare for the future.

THE RETREAT:

19-23 SEPTEMBER 2022 (+weekend festival)

Bringing together the worlds of Grounded Permaculture and Zen Thai Shiatsu we are proud to offer our five-day, fully-catered Retreat leading into the weekend festival.

Created as a synchronistic collaboration between Gold Coast Yoga & Wellness, Growing Roots Permaculture and Grounded Permaculture, this retreat gives a small group of awakening souls the opportunity to embody the interconnectedness between personal well-being and healthy ecosystem function through daily therapeutic workshops and permaculture action on the land. 

  • learn how to read, listen to & work in harmony with the land
  • learn how to care for yourself and others in community
  • be nourished with fully catered wholesome organic meals
  • daily yoga, landcare, Zen Thai Shiatsu & social activities

THE FESTIVAL:

23-25 SEPTEMBER 2022

What would happen if you brought together three well established communities in their own right together to collaborate?

Zen Festival - something that equally nurtures the health and wellbeing of the individual, our community and the land we walk upon. 

  • family-friendly traditional village sized celebration
  • eat together as a community like our ancestors did
  • big focus on holistic health and well being 
  • just the right amount of music to dance and have fun
