A home to spiritual practice and cultural exchange, at the heart of the festival. Classes, workshops, treatments.
Mesa is a wellness space guided by participatory principles, acknowledging the beauty & sacred nature of the Rhodope mountains we reside in through movement, restorative, conversational and ceremonial sessions. We aim to create a platform celebrating the richness of Bulgarian - and wider global - cultural practice. We focus on exploring the potential of a consciously lived life; and the eternal question of 'how might we be of better service?' Our programme is full of sessions elevating the voices of native Bulgarian and Thracian artists, presenting work that is joyful, celebratory & curious. Soak up some Haven healing time, in one of our beautiful Thracian wood massage cabanas to help you unwind in the blissful hands of our experienced therapists. Recharge with either Indian Head Massage, Thai, AYM, Deep Tissue and Holistic massage or Reiki and Theta healing. And expect experienced guides leading talks on sustainability issues or Tantrik philosophy, daytime plant medicine workshops melting into ambient nighttime soundscapes from some of Berlin's finest, with our yoga and breathwork classes providing a balm for post partying nervous systems. Love mycelium or fascinated by the uplifting practice of Kirtan? We may just have a little something for you. Mesa is comprised of three areas: MESA. Our beautiful stretch tent overlooks the valley, and presents a diverse program of wellbeing practices, somatic movement, sound healing, medicine song, workshops, conscious conversation, and cultural-exchange. HAVEN. Cabanas offering floor or table-based bodywork. Indian Head Massage, Thai, AYM, Deep Tissue and Holistic massage. THE READING ROOM. Our bell tent space offering intimate readings, Theta/Reiki healing, tarot & tea culture. Mesa sessions are ticketed. Pre-bookable, with some spaces opening up on live days too.
