Take the Shambhala Virgin Train Tour to experience the lay of the land.
For those who have yet to join the Shambhala “Farmily” – a wonderful icebreaker that can help you get acquainted with the layout and people of Shambhala is the Shambhala Virgin Train Tour! Now in its ninth consecutive year, the Train Tour is a collection of fun and experienced Shambhala veterans creating a walking tour that everyone is welcome to take. It’s a great way to meet people and see where the various stages are at. If you want to see the schedule, check their Facebook page with more information.
Leave a note for a loved one or your hopes for the future at the Wishing Tree.
A very heartfelt and intimate part of Shambhala is the wishing tree held in the middle of the room. Anyone can write whatever they want and attach it to the tree. Over the years, there have been mentions of loved ones, life advice, funny jokes and wishes for the future. At the end of the weekend, the tree has hundreds of floating wishes tied to it.
Discover the unique works of art at the BASScamp gallery.
This impressive art gallery houses many unique pieces created for Shambhala audiences. The BASScamp The geo-dome sits in the center of Shambhala’s “downtown”, close to food, water, and other amenities. At night, the BASScamp dome lights up inside, giving attendees a place to relax and bond around the artwork. Of course, if something interests you, each piece is also for sale!
Spin the Salmo River Ranch spirit animal wheel and find your true self.
A fun and quick activity is to try the animal spirit wheel! Spin the wheel to see what your spirit animal really is and compare it to what your friends are getting. The Animal Spirit Wheel is also a point to remind festival-goers not to litter around the farm and to keep the Salmo River clean of soaps and lotions.
Immerse yourself in the floating parties that take place on the Salmo River.
The Salmo River is the perfect place for a great float party, so don’t forget to bring your favorite float if you have one. Although the Canadian weather can fluctuate greatly throughout the weekend, the floats will still be in circulation even on the coldest days. These floating parties are a great way to get your groups of friends to party or meet new ones!
Rejuvenate yourself with a morning yoga session!
Start your mornings with a little zen by relaxing and stretching those tired dance muscles with guided yoga routines. If mornings aren’t your thing, be sure to check out some of the breathing circles, acro yoga or yoga classes held daily at Yoga Garden. Timings are yet to be determined, but the only requirements are a mat, water and a happy body!
