After being delayed once due to Covid, NZ Spirit Festival makes its return this year as Aotearoa’s preeminent wellness festival event from 22nd – 25th April. This festival couldn’t have come at a better time, after an extremely stressful year, this cultural event is expected to have a huge turnout this year, with participants from both New Zealand and Australia attending to invest in stress-busting techniques and workshops.
This year, the event is headlined by our beloved Rachel Hunter who is both an international supermodel and wellness teacher. Having studied meditation and yoga in India, LA and London, Rachel will be teaching workshops focusing on breathing techniques, meditation and asanas – sharing her knowledge, experiences and life journey with attendees.
Attendees can also expect a top New Zealand music programme, with artists such as Tiki Taane taking the stage, as well as a series of wellness workshops with inspirational speakers and teachers, including world-renowned American, Bruce H. Lipton PHD. Lipton is an internationally recognised leader in bridging science and spirit. Starting out as a cell biologist, his leading-edge science-based approach dovetails with mind-body medicine and spiritual principles. He has been a guest speaker globally on hundreds of TV and radio shows.
Workshops run from 7 am to 7 pm across five workshop zones including yoga, meditation, haka workshop for women, holotropic breathwork and much more. People can learn how to improve their wellbeing through workshops, delve into their own spirituality and emerge a better version of themselves.
Franko Heke, NZ Spirit co-founder says “NZ Spirit Festival offers people the opportunity to take responsibility for their health and wellbeing. Being a drug and alcohol-free festival, people absorb knowledge from workshops running from 7 am to 7 pm, then gather at night to listen and dance to incredible music”.
An important part of NZ Spirit’s kaupapa is being for all ages and bringing older generations together to exchange their wisdom to bridge the knowledge gap between young and old. There are more affordable prices for 55+ people to encourage older people to attend. As well as welcoming older people, the family-friendly festival will have a fully programmed kids zone.
Tickets for the festival are $239 for a four-day pass, $139 for a day pass and $169 for teens. Find the full event details on the NZ Spirit Festival website.
