"Humanity needs Restival" Navajo Elder

RESTIVAL – RECONNECT TO LIFE

Restival fuses the best of festivals and retreats with the creation of a brand new wellness travel get-away. The event landscape is evolving and we have created a five night ultra-travel transformational retreat in the Arizona Desert, offering you the rare opportunity to reconnect with yourself, others and nature in eco-lux comfort with a curated program containing writing, dancing, yoga, meditation, gong baths, nutrition, sweat lodges, Navajo art, Peacemaking, workshops, Navajo astronomy, sound immersions and the chance to visit “secret Arizona” with Navajo elders, off the beaten track, to places with captivating stories from the beginning of time. Become part of our movement and meet amazing people at Gateway Ranch in unity with the Navajo. It’s a bit of game changer.

Register now for tickets for Restival Arizona, September 2017.



After you’ve gained accessed this magical wonderland, the rules of the game change forever, so, read on, and then imagine you’re viewing the Harvest Moon at sunset, inhaling the clean air from the San Francisco Peaks, observing the silence and then watch the videos, to see what Restival feels like.
You too can join our movement.

Breathtaking terracotta scenery punctuated with green cacti, homeland that stretches back till time began, the unique landscape of Grand Falls and the Painted Desert that takes your breath away. You learn from the people who live with Mother Earth and Father Sky in beauty – the Navajo. Arizona was the perfect landing pad for Restival, to hold our very special celebration of nature, being human, re-connection and life, in collaboration with our Navajo friends and the owners of Gateway Ranch, the founders of the award-winning STAR School – the USA’s only off-grid educational facility, a cause that Restival wholeheartedly supports. We celebrate life, love and beauty nightly around the campfire with performances, music, astronomy, stories with the moon and stars looking down on us.

Restival gives you full permission to slow down and take in the view. You won’t be alone – there’ll be about 90 or so like minded travellers with you in comfortable eco-lux accommodation, regardless of age, be it 21 to 61, male or female, single or married, such a  diverse crowd, but we like it like that – our gatherings are exclusively intimate  – it forges stronger connections. Restival often appeals to those who live in densely populated areas, who feel like life is speeding up, who don’t have time to rest as they find it hard to keep apace modern life with bodies that weren’t designed to take on so much pressure.  Just a short stay at Restival changes all of that and you become part of the Restival movement – an antidote to modern living, that gives you a sense of thriving, of being human again.
