Sukhava Bodhe Yoga & Music Festival takes place August 30th through September 2nd (Labor Day weekend) at Stonehouse Farm and Eco-Retreat and Sanctuary, located approximately 90-minutes from Chicago by car. Event passes grant access to all events, which include classes, lectures, and musical performances (the farm-to-table dinner and stand-up paddle board yoga are not included). 2013's lineup boasts the likes of Daren Friesen—founder of Moksha Yoga Center in Chicago—and Paul Fowler, an expert in the areas of massage and meditation. Other events include bands such as The Householders, whose music blends the sounds of hip-hop, electronica, and call and response. People camp overnight for the duration of their stay, so attendees should bring their own tents and supplies. While passes do not include food, vendors sell healthy options throughout the event. Check-in times last from 9 a.m. until 10 p.m. each day of the festival. Guests must bring a photo I.D. when checking in.
Sukhava Bodhe Yoga & Music Festival
Days at Sukhava Bodhe Yoga & Music Festival end around the campfire. As flames flicker, they spill light over a group of like-minded individuals: yogis, musicians, activists, and anyone else who has found his or her way to the annual celebration of mind, body, and spirit. According to event organizers, Sukhava Bodhe means "joyful awakening." That's what attendees hope to experience when they emerge from their tents each morning and start a journey into new areas, both physically and spiritually.
Vibrant flowers blanket the festival's venue, the 37-acre Stonehouse Farm. Walking paths meander around the grounds and lead to different events, passing by a tranquil pond and a limestone farm house from the nineteenth century. Across these grounds, experts lecture and lead classes in areas such as yoga, massage, and even organic farming. Live performers score the day with international music that ranges from American Folk to Kirtan, a form of call and response. Dancing often breaks out during these shows, which allows everyone in attendance to become part of the performance and show off their well-oiled Macarena moves.
