So - what is Barefoot?
Well, it's a musical, dancing, healing, arty, inner hippy type festival held down in Middle England every summer. Price wise it's really, really reasonable - I think it cost us around £70 each from Friday afternoon to Sunday tea time, including parking. And for that you get two free shows, an extra outdoor fire show and as many workshops as you can take! Jan has been before and sang its praises loud and long so that Jo and I just HAD to try it this time around. And are we glad we did!
Namaste Tribal blog. Suffice it to say here that we had a fantastic time on both nights and that there is really something very special about dancing your way across a field, following a fantastic Samba band to a blazing campfire surrounded by whirling fire poi!!
To cut a long story short - we'll definitely be back next year, hopefully with full Namaste AND Sakura contingents! It really does leave you feeling very chilled and peaceful - a special place!
And as the fabulous Karen of the Mai-ni-Axe said on the Namaste blog; 'Barefoot vibes have reached deep into my soul!'
Until next time, happy dancing - barefoot or otherwise!
