bali spirit festival is an annual event held in Ubud, Bali to celebrate yoga, dance, music and all the other good things in life. connecting people towards positive change and togetherness through this inspiring event, WE'AR will be taking part this year and would love to share with you a little bit about the festival and the people involved...

2012 will mark bali spirit festival's fifth year of celebration, and as their vision states, continues to grow as a premiere international holistic-wellness and world music destination event. From March 28th - April 1st there will be global music, yoga demonstrations, classes and workshops, flowing between two stunning locations - Pernati Centre for the Arts in Batuan, and ARMA in Ubud. The Dharma Fair (open to the public!) provides a marketplace and healing sanctuary for local and international arts and crafts, as well as sustainable products. The festival also endevours to support the community by raising money for charitable organizations such as the Bumi Sehat birthing foundation (founded by CNN hero if the year Robin Lim) and in 2010 the Festival founders launched an HIV/AIDS Awareness program to alert families to the prevalence of this rapidly spreading disease. Wonderfully, in 2010, sponsorship was introduced to support the Festival for the first time.
