World Class Music, Movement, Art, Bio, Construction, Health, Community, Permaculture, and Spirituality at Costa Rica's Envision festival.

If the long dark nights and cold frosty days are getting you down, then you need to know about Envision Festival. Taking place from February 22nd to the 25th 2018, it is a way to reset mind, body and soul with a series of workshops, yoga and meditation classes, educational activities and regenerative strategies. As if that wasn’t enough, the four day wellbeing festival also offers plenty of night time fun in the form of some world class DJs, percussionists and live acts.
The location for all this is straight from a perfect fantasy holiday brochure: a coastal location where the Pacific Ocean meets the wild jungle of Costa Rica. It’s a place where you can watch the sun sink into the ocean way off on the horizon, and watch it rise out of the lush green mountains. A place of long hot days and warm and balmy nights. This exotic paradise alone, with the warm ocean and verdant jungle, is enough to do wonders to rebalance your inner energies, but when paired with the festivals ‘eight pillars’ it is a truly magical experience. 
Those eight pillars the festival live by are World Class Music, Movement, Art, Bio, Construction, Health, Community, Permaculture, Spirituality” so expect those values to characterise your whole trip. Helping you improve your knowledge, open your mind and relax your body along the way is world class yoga instruction lead by Gina Caputo, Carson Clay Calhoun, and Robin Martin, Thought Leading Workshops with astrologer Kaypacha, activist and Dakota Access Pipeline Protest leader Winona LaDuke, and Bioneers co-founder Nina Simons.
Musically, there are many different sounds and scenes covered, with cult indie dance act Bob Moses, empowering singer-songwriter Xavier Rudd, South American live band Matanza, Italian techno legend DJ Tennis, globetrotting party-starter Behrouz, Spanish techno giants Audiofly, Israel’s desert-tinged house music shaman Chaim, German live electronic purveyor Monolink and plenty of Latin America’s most experiential sounds to give you an authentic flavour of the local music scene past and present. 
Add to all this mouthwatering local cuisine, a wallet of future outside the festival and friendly locals who are gracious and happy to help you find what you need, and you have an idyllic getaway that will help you get over the winters blues and new year slump in unforgettable ways.

I traveled alone from the United States to meet up with some friends working in San Jose and some other friends who used to live in Uvita (which is how we found out a out the festival). I was extremely hesitant to come because of fear traveling abroad from time I been in college, especially alone. I have never made a better decision in my life. The experience I had here is unlike anything I could ever compare too or explain. I have never felt more centered and at peace. The love that is spread from person to person is amazing. (by the way, I felt so safe once I entered that I ended up wondering around alone for a few hours and met awesome souls from other countries) The love for the land and nature is so contagious. I like what I saw in someone else's review "you get out what you put in to it." People are posting negative comments about the death and the drugs. I am not a drug user and I did not have an issue with people coming to me asking me to purchase drugs. So this did not effect me and I think that statement was very accurate and important. Despite the high cost, I loved the shuttle that took one directly to and from the airport especially since I traveled alone to the airport (didn't worry about safety and knew I would arrive directly at the airport on time. I will absolutely be coming back from this year, onward

I had a student(Also teach in China), who was 20 years old. His spoken was sooo fucking terrible..Couldn't understand a word he said. But his written was on par with mine. A fair bit, in my experience, are similar to this.

Thank you for this incredible article. Very interesting music approach to promote education. Education is the most powerful tool for everyone. Writing, like many things in life, demands effort to be applied in sufficient force and duration in order to be successful. All you need for self-education you can find here https://handmadewritings.com/
