The Mornington Peninsula’s idyllic Peninsula Hot Springs has just announced Awaken, a first-of-its-kind celebration of wellness, community, art, culture and music. Set to take place on Sunday the 26th of March, this holistic event has a full program of activities, including live music performances, yoga glasses and a range of bathing experiences.
A number of wellness sessions will be facilitated by a host of leaders in the wellness world, including best-selling author and stem cell biologist Dr. Bruce Lipton and beloved yoga instructor Shiva Rea, both making the trip from the US to share their knowledge. Workshops will also be hosted by local experts including Marc Cohen, Uma Spender, Jem Stone and Maggie Carr, amongst others.
The newly-opened food bowl and amphitheatre area of the Peninsula Hot Springs has a capacity of 1400, and will be a host to a variety of live music throughout the day. Hot spring pools are arranged around the stage area, so you can dip in the soothing waters as you enjoy the live sounds of Garrett Kato, Kyle Lionheart, Mama Kin Spender (with the Macapella Choir) and Edo Khan.
Attendees are also welcome to wander around the pristine, natural grounds of the Peninsula Hot Springs and enjoy the variety of bathing experiences they have on offer, including cold plunge pools, wet and dry saunas, an ice cave and a selection of geothermal hot springs.
Co-owner of the Peninsula Hot Springs Bharaat Mitra is excited to host such a unique event, “We are inspired and grateful to bring Awaken into the world. Many of us feel deeply the urgent need for a positive change for humanity and the planet. Awaken recognises that a meaningful change will not come to us but will happen through us when we are awake to our pure nature.”
Awaken will take place on March 26, 2023 at Peninsula Hot Springs, Springs Lane, Fingal, Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. Tickets to explore Awaken’s arts, culture and wellness offerings are available for $110, guests can enhance their experience with a more immersive experience that includes bathing for $180.
