Summer Celebration with Mirabai Ceiba & Friends in Corfu, Greece
Rise with the sun, breathe with the wind, rejoice in the melody of the sea.
We are very excited to invite you all on this new adventure in Corfu, to celebrate summer by the deep blue ocean of Greece, together with the sun, the stars, the full moon, in the midst of olive groves and beautiful nature. Come and share with us six days of music, yoga, meditation, chanting, dance, embraced by the spirit of the ocean and the magical island. We will rise with the sun , and the gentle breeze of the ocean, we will sing together for a new day, a new beginning, an opportunity to arrive within ourselves and together with others journey through the sweet melody of life. Bring your beloveds, and allow the elements and the shared experience to open your mind and heart, and arrive in this moment. We will have the July full moon as a reflection of the rising consciousness accompanying our festival.
We await you with a joyful heart! – Markus & Angelika

Kids are also very welcome during the early morning and evening sessions, participating in silence, an excellent time to connect and bond with them.

The Gayatri Mandir is an open air “temple” in the olive groves, close to the ocean, with magical sceneries. Cushions will be provided, but you are welcome to bring your own for added comfort. The floor will be clean and smooth. Chairs will be available for those who need them.
