The Women Behind Bali’s Ancient Futures : NewEarth Festival


The much anticipated Ancient Futures : NewEarth Festival launches April 5th – 9th 2017. Festival goers will experience dynamic talks and debates from world class speakers, a range of healing modalities including yoga and transformational breathing, spectacular evening shows from global musicians and performers, ecstatic dance, high vibrational nutrition, artistic expression, ceremony and more.

Behind the scenes curating and producing the event are a team of powerful and dynamic women, who are professionals from diverse backgrounds and countries. This is another reason why the NewEarth festival is inspiring a shift from the old paradigm of male dominated patriarchal society to a new paradigm of greater equality where the feminine is seen, honoured and celebrated.
