What is the PRANIC Festival?
PRANIC Festival is the ULTIMATE INSPIRATIONAL & EDUCATIONAL EVENT for Consciousness Explorers*, Yogis*, Visionaries* and Human Pioneers* — a new generation living in the Pranic Consciousness. A rare & sacred opportunity to study with True Living Masters from around the world!
Immerse yourself in the New Paradigm, experience the most powerful & practical tools for Self-healing* & Illumination* — merging ancient alchemical traditions with futuristic inner sciences, (re)uniting with soul-family, and celebrating the birth of a Conscious New Humanity!
This event is limited to just 100 people, creating the most intimate, heart-opening environment to nurture soul-friendships that will last lifetimes.
Together, we explore topics such as:
* New Human Physiology – Self-healing & Rejuvenation – Inner Sciences & Alchemy – possibilities for Living on Light, Breatharianism, Immortality, Telepathy & Enhanced Perceptions and other gifts & interesting “side-effects”.
* New Paradigms in Health, Medicine, Wellness

* Raising and Nurturing a New Generation of Awakened Children,
* the Creation of Permanent Peace & Harmony on the personal, local, global and cosmic levels.
and much more! (see Workshop Schedule for full details)
In these 3 days, we go from theories & philosophies, into the practical nuts & bolts of daily Pranic living. Be inspired and charged up, as we exchange personal experiences and learn the most powerful tools, practices, inner-technologies for creating a beautiful blissful Pranic life! With lifetimes of wisdom transmitted within these 3 days, each of us will emerge more inspired*, empowered* and joy-filled* than ever before!

It is a gorgeous new wellness/meditation retreat space and social club called Harmonia Wellness. We’re thrilled to be supporting this beautiful conscious local business! And this new venue is only 10mins away from the previous venue in the Presidio.
So our inaugural PRANIC Festival will be held at Harmonia Wellness – located at 2200 Marinship Way, Sausalito CA 94965. More detailed directions, parking, transportation, etc. will be posted by July 4th!
What time do we start & end each day?
PRANIC 2015 will be in session Saturday August 8 9:30am-7pm, Sunday August 9 9:30am to 6:30pm, and Monday August 10 9:30-4:30pm. This schedule may be subject to minor adjustment, and of course we will notify all attendees of any such changes.
** What is the Cancellation or Refund policy? **
First a note — while we trust that circumstances will align perfectly for you to join us as planned, we also suggest you consider investing in travel insurance in case of extenuating circumstance which prevent you from attending. Due to our limited capacity, and to meet the financial commitments behind this incredible event, we must adhere to a strict cancellation policy. Thank you friends for supporting and understanding this!
Tickets may be cancelled by July 7 2015 for a 50% refund of purchased ticket price. There is strictly *no refund* after July 7 2015. (one month prior to the event date).
If you need to transfer your ticket to someone else, you may do so up until July 31 2015 (8 days before the event) for a small $20 transfer processing fee.
All transfers or cancellations must be requested in writing from the original ticket owner – please send requests to Info@PranicFestival.org . To ensure that your request is processed promptly, please use Subject line: “Ticket Transfer Request” or “Ticket Cancellation Request”.
This event does not support partial ticket-swaps or ticket sharing of any kind; nor do we prorate ticket costs if you are only able to attend certain conference days.
In the extremely unlikely event that the conference is cancelled, we will refund all tickets. We will not, however, be able to refund flight, hotel, or other purchases people may make. (again, please invest in travel insurance accordingly.) All listed speakers are confirmed — however, sometimes life events such as family emergency may prevent them from making it at the last minute. Speaker cancellations do not affect the cancellation policy.

Are children and/or pets permitted? What about my teenager?
We love children and pets! However, this year’s event does not allow pets, or permit any attendees under age 16.
Because of the consciousness-expanding “out-of-the-box” nature of this event, and the powerful meditation practices that our speakers share, participants age 16 or 17 may only attend if they are accompanied by parent or guardian. Thank you for understanding!
How can I become a SPONSOR? Do you have table/booths at this event?
Thank you in advance for your support! We have limited space for a few Sponsors whose products/services are fully aligned with the spirit of PRANIC Living. (e.g. Sacred Art, Music, Crafts, Healing Tools, Conscious/Eco/Enlightened technologies, etc.) Please email us at Info@PranicFestival.org – we love to hear about your products or services, to cocreate a synergistic experience that is supportive and nurturing for all!
What should I wear for the event?
The weather in SF Bay Area can be quite variable – sunny and warm some days, and cold and foggy on others. Even on warm days, temperatures can drop significantly after sunset. So we suggest dressing in comfortable layers for changing weather — be cozy during our sessions of meditation and gentle movement, enjoy the sunshine when available, and also stay warm if it becomes foggy. Please check weather.com for the latest weather updates and plan accordingly!
What should I bring? Will any physical foods be available?
Please be sure to bring a photo ID (driver’s license, passport, etc.) for check-in at the entrance.
Re: food — Besides the all-you-can-eat-Prana-buffet :-), we are excited to offer the most high-vibrational, delicious organic vegan gluten-free snacks, juices, teas, and soups made with love from a beautiful california vendor. called EARTHLY JUICES. Their pre-order menu here:
Please bring cash or creditcards to purchase and support them. We also invite you to bring your own re-usable drinking vessel to refill on spring water or juice. Thank you for helping us to minimize waste.
There will also be a small bookstore area, where you can purchase books by our speakers and other items. So we invite you to bring cash/creditcard even if you don’t plan to purchase any food/drinks.
What about accommodations?
