Getting set up for Soul Circus 2018!

Getting set up for Soul Circus 2018!

As I was packing up from what felt like a weekend of mental, physical, and spiritual fulfillment, I overheard a mother and daughter asking about next year's event and watched as they eagerly purchased early bird tickets for 2018. Regardless of schedules and calendars; the two threw caution to the wind to ensure one thing; they would be coming back to the Circus next year!

What makes Soul Circus so different from other festivals out there? I suspect that it's because it doesn't feel like a festival. It feels like a family reunion. I don't know what the percentage of repeat participants is, but anecdotally, I certainly recognized a handful of people (often, by name!)  that made the pilgrimage across England to attend.

It's a small intimate environment, where people let go and regain their trust in others. They allow themselves to be vulnerable; try new classes, meet new people, and share different thoughts without the fear of judgement and ridicule of peers.

When a gathering of like-minded people come together in a field to celebrate the simple things in life like good food and health in an intricately balanced setting of indulgence and mindfulness; it feels like family. It's the reason the mother and daughter were securing their spot for next year, the reason I travel so far to get there, and the reason the overwhelming staff of volunteers are so happy to help.
