Shoonya – Festival of Nothingness

Shoonya – Festival of Nothingness

Shoonya is a festival that its organisers say “focuses on the journey towards the joyful discovery of inner contentment”. It can simultaneously be described as a camping/travelling, arts and wellness festival where attendees are invited “to flow through the rocks and forests like a river stream via curated pathways of experiences, activities, and workshops” such as drum circle, mandala making, sound healing, yoga and Zumba sessions.

The festival, which was launched in 2018, is held in different parts of the country with the aim of finding untouched spots in picturesque and serene locations.
