Shakti Fest Returns to Joshua Tree on Mother’s Day Weekend

The Shakti Fest community of yogis, meditators, conscious parents and spiritual seekers comes back together for its ninth season, this year on Mother’s Day weekend May 9 to 13. This year’s event will be held at a new location, the  Joshua Tree Lake RV & Campground, in Joshua Tree, offering panoramic views of the north face of Joshua Tree National Park, exceptional desert vistas and spectacular night skies.
              Organized by Bhakti Fest, recently surpassing 10 years of producing conscious events, Shakti Fest is a unique springtime celebration. Driven by the divine feminine spirit, described in Eastern philosophy as the "dynamic force which moves the universe,  "this transformative festival features world-famous yoga teachers, sacred music stars, kirtan, kid’s activities, spiritual and emotional growth workshops, sound baths, a healing sanctuary, bodywork and much, much more.
              Musical artists include MC Yogi, Jai Uttal and Jaya Lakshmi and Ananda; yoga practitioners include Shiva Rea, Mark Whitwell and Kia Miller; and workshop leaders include Zoe Kors, Dharma Devi and Manoj Chalam.
              “We are so fortunate to be staying in the sacred vibration of Joshua Tree. Shakti and Bhakti Fest are all about heart-centered community, a conscious and uplifting experience, and the amazing line-up of artists, teachers and presenters in a family-friendly, drug and alcohol-free environment. We expect to offer the same amazing experience our events have always been known for,” notes Sridhar Silberfein, founder of Bhakti Fest.
