KISIMA
2021

The Mashujaa Day Weekend 2021 marks the inauguration of Kisima, a 4-day wellness festival where we come together to celebrate our minds, bodies, and souls.

Hosted at Beneath the Baobabs in Kilifi, Kisima is our commitment to your wellness and consciousness. We welcome you to a safe space to relax, recharge and reconnect with others like you.

From Thursday October 21st til Sunday October 24th 2021 our 50-acre venue will be transformed into an oasis of peace, joy and relief for you and your loved ones to build bridges beneath the beautiful Baobabs.

KISIMA is a celebration of ourselves and a loving + fierce reminder that we all can be the change we want to see, and that together that mission gets more possible.

We believe that everyone has the capacity to be the change they wish to see in the world.

We believe that change first comes from within.

Our mission is to unite a diverse group of like minded people in a Kilifian space of wellbeing. We invite you to join the movement!

THE KISIMA STORY

KISIMA first came to be as an added feature to the Beneath the Baobabs Festival in 2018/2019. The KISIMA Mind, Body & Soul area was dedicated to holistic practices, workshops, discussions – all centered around creating space for human connection, creativity and mutual understanding.

A Celebration for Mind, Body and Soul

The KISIMA festival is a transformational experience where we celebrate life and all its wonders and focus on finding balance between Mind, Body & Soul. And then we party to good music!

MIND

Picture yourself in the serenity of nature, distraction-free, under 2000 year old baobabs over the source of the Takaungu Creek. Try not to levitate!

KISIMA Mind is where you go to challenge your perspectives, explore new topics and release pressure by speaking your truth in a safe space where you will be listened to.

Our Baraza Hub will host thought-provoking & insightful conversations on topics such as Sexuality, Identity, Mental Resilience and the Science of Embodiment.

Other conversations will touch on unity across the African diaspora, who owns land on the continent and what we can do about it, what our cultural heritage means to us today and how we take back our power.

Expect to be encouraged, enlightened and invigorated by our talks, readings, workshops and panel discussions.

BODY

Science has greatly advanced our knowledge of the human body over the last many decades. At the same time the modern world is filled with new-age stressors (junk food, long commutes, auto-pollution, peak capitalism, inaccessible healthcare). As a result our bodies are more vulnerable than ever.

Come to KISIMA Body to discover how far you can push your body, learn how to de-stress and develop a sharper instinct for what your body needs.

Our unique site will lend itself wonderfully to our Body Workshops. Get ready to reconnect with every cell of your being by exploring a world of Yoga and Dance on our breezy viewing decks and stages, Aerial Silks from our mighty Baobabs and Martial Arts and Conscious Movement under the Tamarind Tree!

Oh and not forgetting to make some serious shapes on the dance floor!

SOUL

At Beneath the Baobabs we believe that we are all united as Distant Relatives and our differences in spiritual practice only makes for a richer melting pot of humans!

Today’s world offers secularism and religion as the only two ways we can be as humans. We disagree.

KISIMA Soul is a space where people of all backgrounds and traditions come to connect to their wider consciousness.

We will open up the deeper corners of our tropical oasis for Ceremonies, Sharing Circles, Sound Therapy, Drumming Circles and Rituals, so that you can at once connect with yourself and the collective consciousness, no matter what your beliefs are.

Come to our Soul Workshops to fill your spiritual cup, let go of worldly limitations on what you should and shouldn’t believe and get in touch with your own divinity.

Expect soul nourishment, elevated consciousness and connection with your true self.

THE HEALING AREA

KISIMA Healing welcomes you to explore the offerings of our amazing Therapists ensconced within the natural environment of Beneath The Baobabs Venue.

The Healing Area offers the opportunity for you to have one on one with some amazing practitioners for some truly indulgent healing with Massage, Acupuncture, Physiotherapy, Trauma release therapy amongst a host of other offerings.

MUSIC, FOOD & FUN

No Festival at Beneath the Baobabs is complete without some straight up entertainment for all! We are excited to build a vendor, bar and performance area for all those revellers looking to connect over the age old traditions of eating, drinking and dancing.

You can expect Super Juices, Artisan Beers, Tropical Smoothies and Healthy Food options to nourish the body and the odd treat for your wild side. We will also be setting up a sound system to keep the vibes real, showcasing some of the best performance talent that Kilifi has to offer.

Bring your inner child to KISIMA let go in our Water Park! Complete with a water slide and shower swings set in nature to add to the general silliness and merriment of the weekend.
