In addition to providing an inspiring space for personal transformation and sacred celebration, the Festival emphasizes giving back to the local Balinese community through creative outreach initiatives. Since 2010, the BaliSpirit Festival has worked alongside partner organizations in Bali, as well as international yoga teachers and musicians, to raise more than USD $200,000 for the Festival’s annual Karma (Giving Back) outreach initiatives. Funds have contributed to children’s programs, multicultural education & performances, health clinics, HIV & AIDS awareness, & environmental protection. The BaliSpirit Festival currently operates two outreach programs annually: the HIV & AIDS education program Ayo! Kita Bicara HIV & AIDS and the reforestation initiative, Bali ReGreen.
The BaliSpirit Festival is indeed a celebration—of the richness of culture, the sanctity of the environment, and harmony between people of all nations. Celebrate with us, and in doing so, help us to make the world a better place.
