WHAT IS CATHARSIS?
Catharsis is about Liberation, Purification, Freedom and Fun! It about getting in touch with the wild dancer who doesn't give a F*** what people think. To open up and make friends with our anger, our power, our passion, our playful nature and our tender heart - all accompanied by a scorching psytrance and electronica soundtrack.
“Each of us is a moving centre, a space of divine mystery. And though we spend most of our time on the surface in the daily details of ordinary existence, most of us hunger to connect to this space within, to break through to ecstatic states of consciousness, to be swept away.” -Gabrielle Roth
