Apart from wellness professionals and their insights, the five-day Soul Festival also incorporates multiple well-being exercises. Panel discussions, keynote addresses and workshops are only a segment. In the idyllic Soneva Fushi, one can engage in meditation, yoga, fitness boot camps, qi gong, breathwork and cacao ceremonies promoting a more holistic activity-based lifestyle. That said, the festival also acts as a stage for artistic expression and culture through music and art.  Food at Soul is soul nourishing quite literally as the dining takes a plant-based, adaptogenic-focused approach to promote physical and gut health as well. The festival curates a weeklong truly immersive journey of restoration and well-being, surrounded by the bountiful gifts of nature in the Maldives also complemented by a 24/7 Barefoot Guardian butler service

“Magic healing powers and soul connection conversations. It has left a really big imprint on my heart and on my soul, and I’ve had some wonderful, deep healing. It’s been the best trip I’ve ever had because it was 100 times more than just a holiday and just education,” said Oli an attendee of the first Soul Festival, talking about his transformative journey.

Hidden away from urban worries, the festival taking place at the Soneva Fushi in the Maldives’ Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve creates a holistic getaway to not only experience the peace of a vacation but also elevate one’s lifestyle and well-being. The festival guests find an opportunity to reconnect with themselves in the heart of nature, surrounded by pristine sands and tranquil waters as well as a range of thought-provoking experiences.
