Just off the Dalmatian coast of Croatia, Obonjan, a tranquil and historic island that was almost desolate for decades, is taking shape as Europe’s first wellbeing and arts island. For yogis, artists, astrologers, dancers, and music lovers alike, the island launches its first-ever summer festival this year.
Obonjan’s founding tribe (an experienced team of producers, creatives, and adventurers) want the spacious island to “grow through ecological practices.” That means inviting anyone interested in learning more about nature and ecology while enhancing life experience to join their “microcosm” baby for as long as they wish, enjoying the rum bars and DJs as little or as much as they feel like.
In order to live better, we must be active in nurturing the healthy interests of ourselves and others, and listen to our body’s calls for better treatment. Whether that means practicing yoga at dawn, taking moments to meditate through the day, and letting our hair down for dance and a little indulgence by night; we all have our routines and rhythms for happy-making contentment.
In order to work better, we must open our eyes and ears to new voices and environments. We can share our skill sets and stories with others, apply new ideas and collaborate, moving forward with an altogether more successful working ethos.
