WHAT IS MAGNESIA FESTIVAL?
Magnesia – A New Way
The original magic of magnesia rose from our need & will for more heartful living, a stronger connection and balance among us in unity with nature. Magnesia Festival was born in 2016, when Mari Rasimus, Kaisa Kärkkäinen, Oded and Asaf Peled came together with a vision to create an event in Helsinki archipelago, a festival that combines yoga, holistic wellbeing, beautiful music, nourishing food, archipelago nature and city festival vibe.
Magnesia stands for a gentle heartful revolution to reach a happier everyday with ease. Feel the joy, freedom and compassion for what we are while enjoying moments of harmony together. We believe that this gives the right amount of strength and courage for all of us to follow the path we need & want with a good vibe - in a loving, mindful way.
The first three years Magnesia were held at the intimate and sweet island of Lonna island, right outside of the centre of Helsinki. In 2019 Magnesia moved to the UNESCO world heritage site of Suomenlinna fortress island, which is now the home for the growing festival.
In 2019, one third of the program was in English and the amount of international guests and guest teachers is increasing every year. In January 2020 we celebrated the first Magnesia Winter Getaway retreat day in Suomenlinna.
Magnesia Festival’s atmosphere has been described as very warm, even magical! Everyone is welcomed exactly as they are. Magic has really been in the air from the beginning and Magnesia has gathered a committed community to help to create the festival every year - a community that feels the importance of our mission in today’s world: more balance, more creativity, more joy, more courage for change, more connection and harmony.
You are warmly welcome to join the heartful revolution!
