This year’s theme is:
Bacchus was the Greco-Roman god of wine, festivity and revelry (also known as Dionysus), who was typically attended by cavorting satyrs (representing lust) and carousing maenads (dancing girls or nymphs)!
As Bacchus/Dionysus represented the sap, juice or lifeblood element of nature, lavish festal ‘orgia’ (rites) in his honour were widely instituted. And according to Wikipedia “his wine, music, and ecstatic dance free his followers from self-conscious fear and care, and subvert the oppressive restraints of the powerful” 🙄… so what better way to welcome back our beloved Puravida and mark Niraj’s 60th birthday than with an epic sandals, robes, vines, crowns, pipes and drums party (complete with goats feet!) Bring your own goblet!
We therefore cordially invite you to prepare yourselves to really let your hair down and celebrate with us in good old fashioned Puravida style this September and….#@&*ing ‘AVE IT!!
A message from Niraj himself!
Calling all fauns, nymphs, satyrs, and maenads…
Hailing all Roman senators, legionnaires, and sexy Centurions…
Shouting out to the wild, untamed inner you waiting to express its liberation…
The Temple of Bacchus awaits you at next week’s Puravida. A loyal army of celebrants are already diligently and lovingly creating a fairytale playground for you to surrender into and enjoy yourself like never before!
Taste Bayari’s sacred elixirs and potent potions to assist you on your journey. Imbibe medicinal cacao or dare to sip the nectar of kykeon, the mystery fluid used in the Rites of Eleusis 2000 years ago.
Take your turn to ask or dispense dubious wisdom at the interactive Oracle of Delphi booth!
Prepare your act, solo or collective, for Puravida’s Got Talent, (bacchanalian style), and await the judgment of the thumb up or the thumb down!
Expect a multitude of other surprises and delights at the party to end all parties to celebrate Niraj’s 60th!
And that’s without mentioning the music….! Wondrous, talented DJs dedicated to your dancing pleasure till the late morning hours…
The bacchantes are gathering…will you join us?!?
Camping only places available, but the weather looks set fair, so come and let yourself play…
