Celebrating art and spirituality in Ibiza

Art, music, alternative therapies, cool stuff for kids, a potluck community dinner and a cosy campfire. All at a secret, forest location this Sunday...

As we move steadily into the autumn and winter season here in Ibiza, the island's hippy spirit rises to the fore. It's a time for enjoying not just the beauty and peace of the island, but for gatherings and celebrations where the island residents meet to laugh, chat, dance and share their skills, talents and stories of the summer.

It's a far cry from the star-studded extravagances of high season. The vibe is much more one of the close-knit community spirit that encircles Ibiza at this time of year and truly, it's a very special time to enjoy the wonderful ambience of our gorgeous island.

This Sunday, Oct 19th sees a cool, new event on the Ibiza social scene organised by local community group Crealife. Comprised of artists, alternative practitioners and the spiritually inclined, the event, christened ‘Celebration' will begin at 2pm, going all the way through until midnight at a secret, forest location (see directions below). Exciting!

This alternative, family-friendly happening will feature a whole host of skills, workshops and therapies including juggling, theatre improvisation, children's activities, painting, dancing, tantra, crystal healing, Power of Life workshop, meditation and live music plus Djs.

Later on when it gets cooler, there will be a deliciously cosy camp-fire with a ‘potluck' dinner at 7pm. A potluck dinner is where each person brings a dish and the whole random lot is cheerfully shared out between everyone. Moreover, anyone interested in the phenomena of ‘spirit channeling' will have the opportunity to meet and witness the work of internationally renowned channeler and Ibiza resident, Solara An-Ra.

Top tips: you'll be expected to bring some food to share at the community ‘potluck' dinner at 7pm and participants are positively encouraged to bring a musical instrument or drum to play around the fire, plus a cushion to sit on if possible!

Entrance is by donation, as are all workshops and therapies on offer.

Directions to the secret location:

From Ibiza, head towards San José, passing two supermarkets: first Mercadona on the right - continue straight on at the roundabout, then you'll see Eroski on the left. At the next roundabout at Can Belloterra, turn right, direction Sa Carroca, passing Club de Tennis on the left. At the third intersection turn left at the triangle sign. You'll now be on a country road and the meeting/parking point will be signposted from here.
