Lost Paradise's Shambhala Fields Line-up, Lost Feast and Eclectic Beats

Lost Paradise, the New Year music, arts, yoga, performance, food and glamping event has announced its Lost Feast menus by Michelin-restaurant trained Hunter Gatherer Chef Paul Mickleright, and the Shambhala Fields line-up of enlivening yoga and workshop teachers and instructors.
More than a music festival, Lost Paradise is a feast for the senses with Shambhala Fields, home to all things mind, body and soul; Lost Feast, lavish communal dining set beneath a mystical canopy over three nights; and Glamping Gypsy Village, a decadent abode on the outskirts of the event grounds complete with porter service.
Shambhala Fields

Nestled by the water, this year the Shambhala Fields will occupy its own space with extended hours and a broader yoga and wellbeing program. Curating the Shambhala Fields line-up for the second year, passionate yogi Catriona Byrne has drawn on over 15 years’ experience practicing and teaching to hand-pick a diverse group of inspirational teachers and speakers.

“We’ve listened to our Lost Paradise community who told us they wanted even more talks, more yoga and more workshops. And so this year we are opening 'Shambhala fields'. A secluded area with beautiful teepees and hammocks offering everything from laughter yoga to Vedic meditation."

“My dream is for people to wander into this magical space and experience something new and inspiring. Sitting down to listen to some aboriginal wisdom or have a profound full body experience while being bathed in a sound healing. It’s all about entering a certain way and leaving with a new fresh open hearted and happy perspective.” Catriona commented.

Yoga and Workshop highlights include:

- Simon Borg-Olivier, Director of the Yoga Synergy School in Australia and internationally renowned lecturer and Yoga teacher.
- Nicole Walsh, one of the original founders of Body Mind Life and owner of studio InYoga, infuses traditional yoga practices with an innovative twist incorporating asana, pranayama, music and meditation.
- Jeevi Ramtel, “The Laughing Chef”, is the certified Raw Food chef and a Laughter yoga instructor.
- YogaRhythms visionary DJ R.I.A is joined by Sydney based Vinyasa Yoga Teacher and world- music dance junkie Shian Love.
- Brooke Elliston flows from east to west, from ancient to modern in this infusion of traditional Tantric practices with a smooth Vinyasa flow.
- Dr Arne Rubenstein, an Australian of the Year nominee, has over 30 years’ experience as a doctor, counsellor, mentor, speaker and workshop facilitator.
- YARN Australia, the Aboriginal organisation will explore ideas, culture, conversation and history between cultures on the land of the Darkinjung people.

Lost Feast

This year’s Lost Feast will be food for the soul, quite literally, with Hunter Gatherer’s Michelintrained chef, Paul Mickleright, crafting the menus. Lost Feast offers communal dining at lavish long tables set beneath a mystical canopy over three nights. A menu of cured king trout, Ottolenghi-style salads and rhubarb and stem ginger eton mess, promises everything but standard festival fare. 

Glamping Gypsy Village

Nestled on the outer reaches of the event grounds lay the Glamping Gypsy Village. Your decadent abode includes porter service, spacious ready-made dwellings, home comforts and additional luxury features all provided for you in this welcoming space.

Lost Paradise is respectfully constructed on ancient land known to local Indigenous elders as 'Paradise Lost'. Led by indigenous elder Gavi, the land and event will be blessed with a traditional smoke ceremony while the group will also lend a true Australian cultural element with basket weaving workshops and at night, dreamtime stories around a fire pit.
