‘Tattva’ in Sanskrit means ‘reality’ or ‘truth.’ This residential festival is a celebration of our True Self without the embellishments of ego, money and social status. It’s all about going back to the basics… where the ‘Self’ exists in its pure elemental form.

In the luscious energy of Zorba the Buddha, you will find a chance to indulge in joyful experience of self-exploration. People from different walks of life … home makers, artists, musicians, office goers, expats, facilitators, diplomats… come together to celebrate the individual and the whole with music, dance, art, food, bonding & a whole array of workshops and activities. We have the choice to participate in sessions of pottery-making, dancing, singing, meditation, yoga, whirling, painting, cooking… all gifted by the participants like you and me.

The Tattva Festival is the darling of Zorba the Buddha so join us for these soulful and sacred three days and embrace the spirit of Tattva.

Some of the attractions:

This exclusive ceremony-series brings together the diverse and often elusive ways of Eastern Himalayan shamanism and healing and puts forward a powerful journey into the esoteric ways of self-transformation using rites, rituals and sacred lore.

Community arts, also sometimes known as “community-engaged” or “community-based art,” refers to artistic activity based in a community setting. People come together to express concerns or issues through an artistic process, sometimes this may involve professional artists or actors. These communal artistic processes act as a catalyst to trigger events or changes within a community or even at a national or international level.

The Community Cooking is a participant-driven, experimental cooking class that engages the public in preparing and eating food together.It often features recipes from guest artists, authors and educators who have a passion for community-centered cooking and eating

People come together to play hand-drums, dance, click pictures and enjoy music in a casual atmosphere! You can dance or just enjoy the music amidst the natural and serene surroundings of this mystical field.

Concert of a different sort, where sound and music has as much as an effect as medicine. The same beauty of music, the same peace of listening but a different impact on your body, senses and spirit.

3rd March 2018 – Concert by KIRTANIYAS

We get together to sing as one voice and through it connect as one spirit. It is by coming together as pure sound that we can raise consciousness at an individual and collective level. We begin with basic long sustained notes, slowly going into rhythm, breath work, noise and singing in melody.

The vibrations of singing bowls resonate with the 7 chakras and activate our awareness. The different layers of the singing bowls have a unique tonal quality to take our mind into a deep meditative state.

For you to be an inhabitant of your own inner landscapes, and dance from your cells, your organs, your heart, your skin, your bones, your tongue.The essence of this workshop lies in listening to the authenticity of our body, in movement or in stillness, and allowing the inner dance to unfold

Learn this exquisite and beautiful art form from the Middle East. Bellydance is renowned as a sensual and empowering dance form. It is an amazing way of connecting to your sacred feminine and inner diva!

Bollywood dance is about storytelling. The songs are from the movies and are there for a particular reason- for example, a celebration song, a seduction song, a love song, a song of sadness. So when you dance it out, you are dancing to the words and mood. Different songs are used at different occasions.

The workshop ‘Rejoice yourself’ works on the idea of bringing out the best in a child.  We can engage kids in different theatre activities like storytelling, poetry, portraying different characters or describing a particular emotion in various ways and giving them an engagement that hooks them for an hour.

Yoga is a group of physical, mental, and spiritual practices or disciplines which originated in ancient India. There is a broad variety of yoga schools, practices, and goals in Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism.

Meditation is that which gives you deep rest.The rest in meditation is said to be deeper than deep. The benefits of meditation are manifold. A calm mind, good concentration, clarity of perception, improvement in communication, inner strength, and relaxation are all natural results of meditating regularly.

Tarotology is the theoretical basis for the reading of Tarot cards, a subset of cartomancy, which is the practice of using cards to gain insight into the past, present or future by posing a question to the cards.

We all respect a few unspoken Tattva Facets:

Pure, uninhibited Self Expression – be it face paints or fancy dresses, musical jamming, or even simply sitting quietly. You are absolutely free to do what you want!!

No Judgment & Community Living – we don’t judge people and we are, in return, gifted with this liberated feeling of not being judged – we can laugh out loud, dance the way we want, sing at the top of our voices, act as silly as we can!!!  No worries — the community will take care of things and each other

Gift Economy – Except for the nominal contribution for the stay and meals, we will not involve money in any of our interactions for the weekend. We will learn to gift as much as we can.

Love for Nature – We understand that it is a daunting task, but if possible, we would want you to leave Zorba the Buddha more beautiful than you found it! Also, it means that we will all be aware of our surroundings and not litter.

 

Participation in the festival is absolutely free. We only contribute a minimal cost for our stay and meals at Zorba the Buddha.

 

Scholarships available for Performing and Visual Artists.
