After being a huge success last summer, the Awakening Festival returns again this year for another weekend of wellness and self-love away from all the hectic responsibilities of day to day life.
The weekend will feature a variety of wellbeing workshops alongside yoga and self-care sessions. But that’ just the tip of the iceberg
About the Festival
Awakening Festival was the brainchild of founder Kate Taylor, who tragically lost both her parents due to stress-induced illness. Since then she has dedicated her career to hosting events such as Awakening to help out people “who feel they’re at the back of the queue when it comes to their own needs”.
Saturday will be a very busy day and it will be organised in a way that you can create your own roster and decide which activities and talks you want to attend. It’ll be filled with a range of workshops, yoga and movement sessions, self-care sessions as well as conversations. There’ll also be a wealth of journey sessions, a zen zone, creative spaces workshops, slow living activities compassion conversations alongside several holistic therapies and readings.
The festival will also feature a wellbeing marketplace where you can get glittered up, purchase local handmade products and even self-care subscription boxes to ensure when the festival is over you still take out time for a healthy self-care routine.
On Sunday, you can expect things to go much slower compared to Saturday as you take part in the Soul Sessions featuring music and yoga classes lead by Tracy Mulas, Namastrave, Serenity Sounds and Kate Taylor herself; with more yoga and sound line ups still to be announced.
Where and When

Better Body and Mind
Mental health not just here on the isle but in the whole of the UK is a huge topic of conversation right now and although services here have improved of late, it’s still important that we take some time to reflect on ourselves on a regular basis for a better body and mind. This festival is the perfect opportunity for that but there are still some great self-care tips you can do at home too. Scheduling time off, eating healthily, exercising, practicing aromatherapy routines and including things like essential oils into your daily routine can all help give you better balance in life.
