Restival Sahara @ Spring Equinox
It’s in the stars

The sky at night in the Sahara is a wonder of the world. You’ll see shooting stars, the Milky Way and our astronomer will guide you through the solar system.

The spring equinox is a time of renewal and rebirth. The equinox marks the midpoint when day and night are of equal length, a precious moment of cosmic balance. 

There are amazing astrological aspects for the full moon on the spring equinox. All about stable and inspired transformation in a grand trine of the moon, Pluto (conjunct Saturn), and Mars. Trines are the most divine configuration.

With our astronomer, we will discover the secrets in the stars & hold a ceremony to celebrate new awakenings on the spring equinox.

Restival’s workshops include Peter Oppermann with the Future Self Method, Francesca Oddie and her Astrology Masterclass, a Writer’s workshop with the BBC’s Richard Hamilton.

In the evening, we enoy live music around the campfire and dance barefoot beneath the stars.

Our new version of music - MEDATRONIC will be experienced with our brilliant team of artists.

Our final night at Restival is at Ait Ben Haddou. Along the former route between the Sahara and Marrakech in present-day Morocco lies an abandoned Kasbah. There is one private hotel based within this ancient village and we get the chance to stay there. Inside the walls of the ksar are half a dozen (Kasbahs) or merchants houses and other individual dwellings, and is a great example of Moroccan architecture.

 

Restival has so much to offer….
