Elohim Festival, yoga, dance and mystical sound
We present Elohim Festival, a meeting of Yoga, dance and sound mystical, that will be held in room space round in Madrid, from 2 to 5 January 2014.
"Elohim" is the union of the male and female creative principles. We take the term of Hebrew origin to define our divinity in plural (gods/goddesses), living at all.
Elohim Festival will be a gathering of music and concerts, shows, yoga classes and several dances. Four days of movement of consciousness and energy, inner work with the most powerful tools of transformation that we know of: yoga, sound, voice, expressive movement and silence. A burst which can not leave us indifferent.
Elohim is conceived as a participatory meeting where the attendees are the protagonists and interact in the different activities. There is no audience, only actors and protagonists.
The activities are designed for heterogeneous support, like life itself. This means that you don't have to have done yoga or dance or learn sing to attend a practice of yoga, an African dance workshop or a kirtan.
All activities are affordable for everyone. All you need are eager to explore.
Activities and participants
Elohim Festival is born with three sections: Yoga, dance and sound mystical. We believe that they are three slopes to climb, share and make Summit at the top of the mountain where we connect tod@s in one.
