integration, creativity, presence & community. SOMAfest enlivens artists,
audiences and participants from all walks of life to move beyond expected
experiences of both physical self-discovery and expression.

inquiry of embodiment. We provide people from around the world to grow the
capacity to take their health and creativity into their own hands, to deepen into the
greatest version of who they truly can be.

can inspire, lead, and transform the world around you. The festival is geared toward individuals who have an interest in
exploring the body-mind connection for creativity, health and life performance in a process oriented and experiential way.
