Bulgaria June 1 - 4 2023
A home to spiritual practice and cultural exchange, at the heart of the festival. Classes, workshops, treatments.SOLD OUT
Mesa is a wellness space guided by participatory principles, where all genders, views, backgrounds and beliefs are actively welcomed. Acknowledging the beauty and sacred nature of the native Rhodope mountains, 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?' Thursday - Sunday we offer a daytime schedule of ticketed classes, ceremonies, workshops and talks, which unfurl into an evening programme of ambient music sets. Within the programme we offer a number of free sessions, to support those needing open access to wellness.
Unwind, invigorate and reconnect with your body. A deeply restorative massage in one of our wooden Haven bodywork cabanas overlooking the bountiful valley. Buy your treatment and then come to the Mesa reception at the festival to book in a specific slot with one of our expert therapists. Choose from Traditional Thai, Holistic, Deep Tissue, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, Indian Head Massage and more. Please note: treatments are valid for their specific day and cannot be swapped if missed. Time slots are booked in on a first come first served basis.
Reiki is beneficial for deep relaxation, releasing stress and tension, dissolving energy blocks to restore harmony and balance to your mind, body and soul, activates the body's self-healing ability and immune system, relieves physical and emotional pain, improves sleep and deepens spiritual growth and development. I use the elements, fire, water, earth and air to guide me energetically in what’s happening for you. You’ll be cleansed, healed, charged, blocks and sticky stagnant energy released. After your session, we talk about findings and you can receive guidance for your forward journey.
Cha Dao (‘the way of tea’) philosophy honours the principles of balance, grace, quietude, mindfulness, simplicity, and harmony with nature, which we align with as part of a Rasa Tea Ceremony. Join Ella for an intimate ritual in The Reading Room immersing in the essence of intricacies of temperature, aroma, flow, resonance, and the unique taste of this Organic Earth Medicine. Bring a cup for your tea!
Our expert healers specialise in Deep Tissue, Holistic, Sports + Remedial, Traditional Thai + Indian Head Massage.
Mesa has a main reception where you can book in your time slot with one of our welcoming team. Daily time slots are allocated on a first come first serve basis so we recommend swinging by Mesa reception as soon as you arrive in the festival. You will need to bring email/printed confirmation of your treatment to book in.
Our opening hours are 9:45am - 7:00pm Thurs - Sunday.
To find Mesa, look out for the big red stretch tent overlooking the valley by the pizza oven.
While we understand traversing a festival can take time, all our sessions are usually fully booked with limited capacity, so any missed ones cannot be re-booked or refunded.
