The «Ural Round Dance» festival took place in the kin's settlement «SvyatoRusye». This festival is for everyone who is looking for the spiritual growth of awareness. As the organizers of the «Ural Round Dance» say, it is difficult to build a space of love if there is no harmony and tranquility inside. So the festival is organized in order to be filled with light, happiness and unity with others.
All guests are delighted with the rich program and atmosphere of the «Ural Round Dance». They willingly share their impressions:
«You always come spiritually fulfilled from such events. You feel inspired, and you definitely make new friends and find like-minded people. This year the festival takes place on a wonderful land, kin's settlement «SvyatoRusye». Amazing people live there. The land gives strength there. It was the best festival I have ever attended. Trainings, master classes, a fair, round dances, and gatherings around the fire - everything was lively and great»
The «Ural Round Dance» program included recreational and creative activities. There were lectures on self-knowledge, sports games, theatrical improvisations, and meditations. Every evening, musical bands performed on the main stage, and guests danced. There were master classes designed only for women. For example, women's gymnastics to extend childbearing age.
Competitions in traditional Slavic wrestling were held for men. Both the participants and the audience were delighted:
«I really liked the Slavic wrestling!
It is a complex of men's games that develop strength and dexterity. Throughout the event, there was a great and warm atmosphere. This happens when like-minded people gather. Uncompromising fights on the battleground! But outside the battleground there is friendship, mutual assistance, and heartedness!»
It was impossible to attend all the events, but everyone found something for themselves at the festival.
«The festival is of extraordinary power, bringing together amazingly unique people. What a great thing the organizers of the event are doing: the preservation of Slavic traditions and crafts! How many master classes I have attended, how much knowledge I have gained! And I also managed to get acquainted with the amazing musical duet Divyaros and their soulful songs!»
For a long time, all the participants of the festival will reflect on everything they saw and what they learned.
«The Ural Round Dance is one of the best events that happened in my life! For four days I have lived a life full of joy and laughter, discoveries, realizations, cosmic energy, and unity with nature, with friends, with the whole world, and the Universe! I felt my strength in acceptance and trust. When you trust, you gain confidence, and you become strong. A powerful stream carried me away, filled my heart with love, gratitude for trust and care! THANK YOU to all the Organizers and Masters!»
