This was the fist time I taught a handstand workshop at a festival. It was very well attended with between 30 – 50 people attending each day.
This is the 4th time I’ve attended Buddhafield festival. As usual I was part of the Triban crew erecting the Word Up tent which is a marquee used as a space for workshops and open mic.
I enjoy being part of the team, it’s nice to have a group of people who feel like a family at a festival. We hang out together and eat together every day.
Apart from errecting the marquee and running he handstand workshops I also enjoyed another activity which is being body painted. Debbie Payne was the artist this year and it’s always good to work with her since she understands me and she know the glamourous striking style I like to be painted with.
The weather was good and we enjoyed many sunny days. I took the opportunity to get some handstand photos with the sun setting.
Buddhafield is known for being drunk and drug free which makes it a very nice atmosphere. There is no lack of energy since everybody is sober and connecting on an equal footing. There’s plenty of music, workshops, yoga, dance, saunas, and of course Buddhism.
Sunday night as the Sun sets is my favourite time outside of Small World. There is a sense that the festival is almost over and now is the time to have the conversations and make any connections wanting to be made before everybody goes their separate ways.
