Since the summer of 1997 the Spiritfest Retreat, originally called the Aleila Festival, has brought together people to co-create with each other. Co-created by artists Darinka Blagaj and David Berger, the retreat presents a variety of artists, healers, and creative individuals who create playshops, workshops, performances, and installations which encourage inspired participation.
Spiritfest believes in gathering like-minded, like-hearted friends and offering them an experiential, interactive and creative retreat festival weekend in sacred space - outside of the city. It has run in a number of locations throughout southern Ontario, including Parry Sound, Haliburton, and Muskoka. We are very excited to host this year's retreat at a new location, Mansfield Outdoor Centre, which boasts 300 acres of beautiful land just two hours away from Toronto.
