What is ManaFest?

Mana-Fest is a gathering of souls with the intention to raise the vibration of all beings and the planet. The festival will be located on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica in the small rasta beach town of Puerto Viejo. The festival venue is a colorful beachside hostel called Rocking J’s, a hidden gem covered in mosaics, art and a one of a kind massive floating Mayan pyramid. Mana-Fest festivities will include yoga, DJ's, live music performances, uplifting talks, art workshops, ecstatic dance, cacao ceremonies, meditation, sand castle building contests, hoop workshops, fire shows, sacred plant workshops, mosaic creations, body painting, permaculture, cooking demos, healing elixir and local craft beer bar, delicious food and much more. Explore your fullest potential and let’s transcend this world to a New Earth where we live in harmony and abundance with all beings, nature and spirit. Come down to a 'Pura Vida' place – First, Envision. Then, Mana-Fest.

What Makes Us Unique?


We are planning a memorable weekend of inspiration by combining high vibe music, dance, plant-based nutrient dense food, healing modalities, indigenous cacao ceremonies and art events for a retreat of self-discovery and connection. We focus on raising awareness, sustainability, eco-living, and building community. We believe humans are crying out to go back to their tribal nature so that we can unite together and raise consciousness. We believe in connecting with our ancestors with a mission to bring indigenous and shamanic traditions to the people and to REMEMBER who we truly are.

Project Manifest

Project Manifest is a community-based initiative designed to empower individuals with an active blueprint for manifesting and co-creating the dreams of our divinity into reality. This multifaceted project first took shape in Chicago, IL. We are now based in Sedona, AZ, but continue to have deep roots in the Chicago community. We are manifesting a variety of events and collaborative projects in both locations, connecting these two amazing communities. As we grow and evolve, our intention is to expand nationally and globally. While each event is unique, our overarching message is to remind each of us individually of our true nature and to awaken the divinity within. Each event carries with it the goal of personal empowerment of each individual involved or attending to manifest the life and world of their dreams while stepping into their highest power.
