Now in its second year, The Balispirit Festival is the result of a unique collaboration of three individuals, each bringing a unique perspective to life and how it should be celebrated. Established in March 2008, The Balispirit Festival is aimed at creating a community-based event in Bali that would attract people from around the globe to contribute to creative collaborations in yoga, music and dance.

Each of the co-founders shared the strong belief that any eventual event should reach out to young people. The Festival also seeks to create an environmentally conscious even; one which will inspire on-going responsibility to the environment through Festival activities highlighted on the Free Family Day (Hari Cinta Keluarga).

The Founders

Meghan Pappenheim

Meghan wants Bali visitors to experience the beauty and serenity all yogis enjoy when they come to Ubud. It is her belief that teachings through Balispirit are meant to be shared with the collective, so that everyone can actively participate and ‘give back’ to the community.

I Made Gunarta

Made Gunarta believes in the preservation of a wide variety of Balinese creative forms. His vision is to showcase and share the true essence of Balinese culture with a wider audience in order to positively impact the consciousness of people throughout the world.

Robert Weber

Robert is creating a platform for conscious performers to gather and share their unique forms of music with a new audience from Bali and Southeast Asia. A producer and musician, Robert has a deep understanding on how music can have a profound and lasting effect on many people’s lives.

Balispirit 2009 – Back for a Second Successful Year

The Festival has grown from an initial four-day festival to a six-day celebration, adding more workshops and performances by international and local artists. Acclaimed Yogis and outstanding performers from Ghana, Guinea, Uganda, USA, Canada, Mexico, UK, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, India, Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and from across the Indonesian archipelago will be participating across the entire six days.

The Festival grounds have also been expanded through the kind support of the Purnati Center for the Arts. With the addition of a 1,400 square meter lawn area that will serve as the main venue for the Festival Night performances and Dharma Fair, there is also an attractive outdoor amphitheater, a beautiful two-storey floating pavilion with a 240 square meter yoga space on the 2nd floor overlooking lush tropical greenery, a 148 square meter swimming pool, and expansive lawns that are perfect for yoga and dance workshops during the Festival.
