 Each one of us will be able to celebrate his/her deepest, true and wild nature in the midst of the most beutiful and magical summer time.

The festival includes the celebration of Summer Solstice and rituals during Līgo night in our own special way which is different from traditional. It will be a call from the depths of our hearts to reunite with the Soul of Mother Earth – it’s quintessence!

Four fulfilled days where the forces of East, South, West and North are intertwined. Three nights filled with mistycal experiences. To honor Mother Earth, her power and support. In honor of her sacred union with Heaven, from which, we were created. In honor of our ancestors and their heritage. We celebrate in the prayer of dance and song for our Divine future.
