Revelry Reinvented: Restival Announces Restival Award And Dr. Nikki Starr, Sebastian Siegel, Murray Hidary + More To Join Oaxaca NYE Creative Workshops
Restival is thrilled to announce their first round of programming which will bring pioneers in the realm of mental and physical wellness to Oaxaca this New Year’s Eve. Consistently showcasing world-renowned speakers, artists, teachers, artisans, alchemists and performers, this is just the beginning as Restival will soon unveil additional programming alongside a musical lineup for their first ever New Year’s Eve party.
Restival’s ethos of Revelry Reinvented can be broken down into five stages: release, dream, celebrate, embrace and manifest. Over the course of the five-day event, revelers will travel through this transformational arc to emerge refreshed and ready to tackle 2019.
From engineers to musical virtuosos, Restival will host a myriad of speakers including master ethnic percussionist and composer Nacho Arimany, spiritual healer, life coach, love doctor, health/wellness expert and yoga instructor Dr. Nikki Starr, German engineer turned meditation teacher Peter Oppermann, British actor and leading author on intimacy and the eternal life Sebastian Siegel, classical pianist and tech pioneer Murray Hidary, Oaxacan local and artist in residence Guillermo Olguin, intuitive healer and psychic Noah Berman, and alchemist and dream guide Blair Lauren Brown.
As the Restival narrative continues to unfurl, the programming offered will encompass a vast array of subject matter and immersive avenues for guests to explore and connect through art, craft, music, meditation, movement, herbology and astrology. More speakers to be announced soon!
Restival is also excited to present the first ever Restival Awards, which seeks the World’s Best Human. This is someone who has endured challenges, is an advocate for the environment and a defender of the disenfranchised; someone who has persevered and never given up, who is noble, selfless, humble and altruistic. Restival wants to bring light to the life of an unsung hero by encouraging people to nominate who they believe is the World’s Best Human.
The winner will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to Oaxaca and access to all things Restival. The award will be bestowed on November 17th at a grand reveal party hosted by Restival and The Confluence in a stunning event space in downtown Los Angeles. Nominations are now open and can be submitted here.
In addition to their critically acclaimed cadre of enlightening speakers, innovators, artists and indigenous elders, Restival will—for the first time ever—close out the final chapter of 2018 with a lineup of soon-to-be-announced musical guests curating underground indigenous beats for guests to revel and groove beneath a sequinned sky. After an epic soiree of mezcal, dancing and music, guests can decompress within the stillness and serenity of the Oaxacan countryside through daily yoga, resting their bodies and soothing their minds. The full music lineup will be announced in the near future!
This week-long transformational experience allows guests to dive into a diverse array of activities, designed to inspire reverence, creativity and reconnection. Restival Oaxaca will offer visceral and authentic experiences such as yoga at the base of geological phenomenon Hierve el Agua, a petrified waterfall, and sunrise meditations atop a nearby sacred temple. Bask in the prevailing spirit of one of the most unique regions of Mexico while enjoying a New Year’s celebration surrounded by music, dance and vibrant creations by local artists within the Mezcaleria—a work of art in itself.
Be whisked away to a breathtaking landscape and gift yourself with a much-needed sabbatical from the miasma of urban life. A diverse range of individuals—from white collar workers to Burning Man devotees—gather to disconnect from their busy lives and reconnect with the stillness of nature. In a world blinded by backlit screens and deafened by digital noise, rest has become a lost art. Restival serves those who seek to rediscover themselves and escape from the hypnosis of modern society.
