Het Grote Fijne

Starting the year in Divided I Unity in the midst of a blissful crowd, full of wildflowers and creative spirits.

 

Grote Fijne is a full immersion in what life has to offer when we Tune in and Align, Expand, Resonate and Vibrate Together.

 

Welcome, into our delicious bubble of blissfulness. It’s a 3-day gathering with a free flow program with workshop areas, a special wellness & healing area and a Chocolate Club bar to treat yourself.

By honoring our body as a vessel for divinity, we flow, connect and resonate in our expressions. With a mix of chemistry that attracts and alchemy that builds. 

We create a safe space for each other to take an inward journey towards an outer expression which is authentic and judgement free. We are holding that space for you to be freely you.

free flow

There is no centralized program and we encourage you to go and flow! You can join the elements that feel right and participate in ceremonies and workshops that sound exciting.

 

Captivating workshops, transcending dances, beautiful ceremonies, gorgeous yoga sessions… you name it and so much more.

 

Enjoy the nature or the wellness in between or just hang out and do nothing. A nature-emerged camping spot is included in your ticket, or choose to stay indoors in the cozy castle estate buidlings.

concept

Lose yourself in an ecstatic dance experience or go on an inner journey during our transcending ceremonies. Chill out in nature, find your inner wonderland in a hammock, join an inspiring workshop, or let yourself be moved by sounds at an acoustic concert. Feel the deep connection at a bonfire or just be present in the very moment.

 

We shift our thoughts, visions and feelings into a prayer. A prayer of dance and movement, as we ground and center, radiate love and expand into something new, comfortable and exciting.

Can I bring my children to the festival?


No, children are not allowed at this festival. Looking back at the previous gatherings, we are pleased with our decision not to include our beloved offspring in the activities. The program is tailored to adults and their precious me-time. Our experience has taught us that there are certain responsibilities involved when children participate in a festival. We realize that both parents and the organization may focus too much on the well-being of our children and thereby loose focus on our main goal: creating the most powerful gathering experience. We invite all mums and dads to find a suitable solution for their kids, so they can be free to claim the necessary me-time for beautiful days of the gathering.




Is there anything special I need to bring with me to the festival?


Additionally to your usual travel and festival necesaties, it is good to also bring a yoga mat and pillow for the concerts and meditative moments.

For every wildflower

Wildflowers are essential for a healthy ecosystem. They nurture the soil and stabilise the surroundings by their complex root system. They are keepers and protectors of soil particles and nutrients much needed for plants and soil to stay healthy. That is how we see our community.

The better we root and ground ourselves, the healthier it is for ourselves and the eco-system around us. Our own health anchors in our bodies and becomes contagious for others. 

The beauty of wildflower nature is the ability to evolve alongside native wildlife developing shapes, sizes, colours and scents.People in our community, like wildflowers, have the ability to naturally evolve into all the different shapes, sizes and colours and so to connect with wildlife around us. That’s the inner resonance and magnetizing connection between each other that is so dear to us.
