Buddhafield Festival 2019: Meditation and Buddhism with a difference

Dates for 2019: July 17 to 21

"Buddhafield Festival is an intimate and joyful gathering of around 3,000 people, celebrating community and connection with the land. Song, dance, arts and crafts, yoga, meditation, and play blend together without drink or drugs to create a loving and life-affirming space. There will be Buddhist teaching, workshops and ritual, under sun and stars. The Festival is family-friendly and open to everyone, however you practice.

The Buddhafield Festival is held in the UK each year, on a beautiful site in the Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), about 7 miles South of Taunton, at Culmhead.

We offer a full programme of activities, including the teaching, discussion and study of Buddhism and Meditation in the Dharma and Meditation Space. If it’s relaxation you’re looking for, take your ease in one of a number of vegan and vegetarian cafes, while waiting for one of our extensive range of workshops to start. There’s a full performance program of music and cabaret. We have a set of specialist Areas and Spaces including Permaculture, Social Change, Women’s Space and a terrific Kids Area. Among the delights of healing and bodywork on offer, you could learn or practice Yoga, Tai Chi, Chi Gung, book a massage or investigate one of the dozens of other treatments."

"Buddhism is about getting out of our head. Into the body. Into the abundance of the present moment. Away from stale thought loops that regret the past or worry about the future; away from a dulled, dumbed down experience; away from avoiding parts of ourselves, into the full vividness and beauty of now."

Open to anyone interested! More information about the festival and Buddhafield retreats at the website here.
