The Mind, Body & Soul area

We are excited to announce the return of our area dedicated to feeding the mind, body and soul! Kisima means “well” in Swahili, a safe space to be held and nourished. An exciting and dedicated space away from dance floors where you can recharge and engage with a wealth of holistic practices.  Here you can feast on workshops, talks, discussions, therapies, art, performance and movement that enhance the festival’s values of holistic living and conscious education. It’s a space for human connection, creativity, mutual understanding and grey matter stimulation! Be prepared to learn and laugh- a lot!

We will have a number of micro-venues, hosting an incredible array of offerings.

Kilifi New Year University:  


Last year we had the absolute force of nature, Kenyan conversation queen Ciru Muriuki join us for six mind pumping sessions at our ‘Kilifi New Year University’ hub! The conversations she hosted during the festival were thought provoking and insightful. These included: Racism in Kenya, Finances for the Average Millennial, LGBTQ Rights, Sex and Taboos, Freedom of Travel, and Feminism. Soon, we’ll announce the hosts and schedule for Kilifi New Year University this year.

Keep your eyes on our website and social pages to stay updated with all the goodness Kisima will deliver for the 2020 edition of Kilifi New Year!
