About Secular Sabbath
The Secular Sabbath collective consists of artists who aim to bring something special to the human experience, evolved out of the societal need to celebrate a day of rest, a time to settle, to set all compasses north for the approach week. Thus, observing the Secular Sabbath. The space is constructed of sensory experiences that invite guests to drop into their sensory selves: the way they hear, smell, taste, touch, and see.
The centre point is music, which is proven to have deep psychological and subliminal effects on human beings. Secular Sabbath have also played host to tea ceremony, a bodyworker with natural anointments distilled from her garden, a foraged plant installation in which guests sit, a poem store (your poem, your price), an interactive musical space, a singing plant zone (where people interact with a plant hooked up to a midi) and a collage zone. This experience usually flows for 4 hours, in which people are invited to come and leave, and lay down as they please.
Soul Stretch create beautiful healing spaces that invite people to relax and unwind. At Secular Sabbath they will integrate some Soul Stretch signature treatments for guests to have an enhanced evening and ease away those final knots of stress. They will offer a combination of Shiatsu, Acupressure and Chair Massage focused on the back, neck and shoulders all delivered by Soul Stretch top therapists, helping you to feel relaxed and nourished.
