The Stretch Festival can be both a powerful and overwhelming experience. And on top of that we still live in the midst of turbulent times. Are you looking for a space where you can express your feelings and share your experiences in a loving and supportive community? Then join us.

The Heart Circle is a practice that originates from Native Americans, adopted by the Radical Faeries as a way to build community. It is a place where we can speak from the heart and listen with our hearts, honouring the different ways from which we come in a safe and non-judgmental space.
