Wow!

The World has changed since we last celebrated dance & community in Goa. We all have changed and so has Arambol. What is left of what has been? The truth is we don’t know. What we do know: We will go, find out and create something meaningful together. Pre-pandemic we have experienced that Arambol is a place where we can connect in beauty, dance with life and transform deeply. Individually and together as a family. Our intention is to reconnect to that spirit.

Now is the time: After not doing the Goa Ecstatic Dance Festival for 2 years, we feel ready to go back to Arambol in 2023. To co-create on the magic beach one more time. Going forward and dancing in all directions with curiosity, a beginners mind and an open heart. Let’s be together and support each other with awareness and community

Our proposal

Please stay! Rather than coming for a short-time visit we encourage you to stay for the whole season of events in January 2023, as there will be many offerings at our festival hub Forgotten land. This is an opportunity to immerse ourselves not only in the GOA ECSTATIC DANCE FESTIVAL and the GOA CONTACT FESTIVAL, but also other festivals, partys, jams, and trainings for the whole month of January. The more we get involved, the stronger the support of the local and international communities.
