Salvaje Sound Festival
What a magical day at Salvaje Malibu! We hosted our first ever Salvaje Sound Festival on Saturday, June 29th 2019; a full day experience featuring sound baths, yoga classes, plant meditation, reiki, facials, panel discussions, wine, healthy food and local health conscious vendors. Guests were immersed in a day filled with relaxation, rejuvenation and all things wellness.
Now, if you’ve never heard of a sound bath or a reiki session then this is for you! A sound bath is an acoustic sound healing journey that relaxes the body, clears the subconscious, calms the mind, and activates your body's natural healing systems. It is a great way to de-stress and give your body the self-love it needs. Reiki is a way of channeling energy through the hands of an attuned practitioner, which are placed above different parts of the client’s body. The healing energy flows to wherever it is needed in the body, promoting deep relaxation, relieving stress, and promoting a feeling of profound well being and greater inner calm. As for plant meditation, you will just have to experience it for yourself!
Upon arriving to the event, guests were able to plan out their experiences for the day (i.e yoga classes, reiki sessions, facials, plant meditation and sound baths). Each experience offering a unique twist on self reflection and relaxation. In between sessions, guests were encouraged to explore our vendors including Saje Wellness, Little Brittons, Beauty Bar Chocolate, No.8 Organics and other wellness-focused brands. In addition to vendors, Beaming Super Food Organic Cafe and Lady and Larder Cheese & Charcuterie were served for attendees to enjoy throughout the day. OKI CBD Tea as well as FLOW water were sponsors of the festival covering our hydration needs. Alongside all things wellness, guests were given a glass (or two) of wine to enjoy at the festival. After all, life is about balance, right?
Here at Salvaje, we love DIY projects. It was important to us to have something guests can enjoy making and customizing to their unique styles. We decided to have a DIY Essential Oil bar at the event, allowing guests to create their own essential oil blends with various crystals for additional wellness benefits. Guests were also able to enjoy temporary floral tattoos for an added DIY fun.
Additionally, we love hearing from powerhouse CEOs and girl bosses that have started their own ventures. Our Chat Corner featured these business owners who shared insight on their struggles, successes and all things in between.
After all sessions had ended for the day, we had our last sunset sound bath and closing ceremony to conclude the event. The ceremony included mantra cards, tea and connectivity, forcing guests to take a moment for themselves; something often forgotten in todays world. For Salvaje, this was a special moment for us as we had successfully brought a community together for a day of self love and rejuvenation.
You could say Sound Festival attendees had the ultimate Saturday. Heres what guests that joined us had to say:
“This event was breathtaking! Everything about it was so insanely thought out and so well planned that it flowed effortlessly! The vibe of the festival was so calming and so welcoming! Definitely felt like an escape from the craziness of day to day life! I would absolutely come again and bring all of my friends to enjoy a beautiful day like this again”
“A very enlightening event. The Reiki was phenomenal.”
“Loved the mantra cards after the amazing sound bath and learning about the plant meditation! So awesome”
A small idea created by the Salvaje Team has turned into a huge success and we cannot wait to plan our next wellness event in early October 2019. Stay tuned for exact date...
