    “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,”

    Taking place over five days at the idyllic Soneva Fushi in the Maldives’ Baa Atoll UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, festival guests will be able to reconnect with themselves and nature across miles of pristine sandy beaches and tranquil turquoise waters, complemented by 24/7 Barefoot Guardian butler service, exceptional dining journeys and rare experiences that delight.
