Bhakti Fest 2019: Gutsy and Grounding

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Got a fever? (Don’t worry, that’s just the heat of the desert!) We’ve got a prescription…and it’s called more CONNECTION!  

It’s been an unusual year…. unexpected, joyful, and relentlessly full-on. Life has truly been in session. Lately the name of the game here at One Great Gut has been truly walking the walk and embarking on a path of radical healing, recovery, and transformation. And it is amidst these moments of acceleration and activation that we crave, more than anything, those tried and true systems and pathways for whole body/mind/spirit wellbeing and harmony.


That tingling in our tummy? We’re feeling the bhav in our belly! This month we can’t wait to attend Bhakti Fest 2019. This is one festival guaranteed to enliven your mind, nourish your body, and ignite your soul. Exactly my kind of unusual. Just our brand of extra-ordinary. It’s one serving of gutsy, with a side of grounding for dessert.


This September Bhakti Fest blossoms alive at its new location – the stunningly beautiful Roadrunner Dunes at 29 Palms in Joshua Tree, CA. Bhakti Fest is the preeminent sacred music and yoga festival dedicated to bringing spiritual and earthly empowerment. Headlining are some of world’s greatest teachers of spiritual knowledge, yoga, dance, and breathwork, while nonstop sacred music will be performed (participation and chanting encouraged!) Engage in guided mediations, immerse yourself in the healing sanctuary, or flow alongside global yogi attendees this September 25-30, in Joshua Tree, CA.


Ok, but really…what?
Get ready to be invigorated, energized, and revitalized by the buffet of offerings, including continuous Kirtan, yoga, guided meditation, wisdom workshops, fire ceremonies, massage and bodywork, energy work, intuitive readings and countless other healing and life-optimizing modalities. This event is totally kid-friendly as well with plenty of activities and entertainment for all ages. Also on the festival grounds is an eco-friendly village, holistic marketplace, and healthy vegetarian cuisine from incredible vendors and community partners. You’re guaranteed to plenty of OGG-approved nosh and nibbles.

Mother knows best…Choose to commune with Mother Nature, whether in a tent/RV/yurt/or local hotel, there’s nothing quite like savasana beneath the stars.
