“What could be more fulfilling than supporting a curious new generation?
They can be aware, innocent and alive.”
Inspired by the new generation
If the new generation is going to invent the world of tomorrow, let’s facilitate the tools and knowledge that they need, in a fun way through the biggest “playground” for exploration and expression possible.
The idea behind Impulse has been building up through 20 years of collective and individual training led by Vasanti. To witness the beauty of the energy of the young generations has touched her so deeply, that it served as the inspiration to create Impulse Festival.
Through her experience Vasanti understood that, far from the idealized vision of youth, the “quarter-life crisis” is marked by a lack of meaning, pressure and the quest for happiness. This crisis —whether it is societal, ecological, human, biological or identity-based— is real, and taking this turn is essential.
The Festival Founder
Vasanti : The soul of Impulse
A forerunner Body Psychotherapist specialized on Sexual Grounding Therapy® and Vegetotherapy (original therapeutic of Wilhelm Reich). She has been teaching “Love and Ecstasy Training” for many years. And enjoyed 15 years of experience working with the young generation.
She works with people of all generations, backgrounds, and cultures, leading workshops of her own creation. For over 20 years the common thread running through her work has been the energy of life, a synthesis that incorporates the full complexity of the person. She is committed to bridging the gap between psychology, ancestral rituals and Tantra.
Inspired by Babaji’s teaching and her life as a wife and mother, Vasanti facilitates a transformation process full of humanity and professionalism.

Claire is an infectious disease specialist at Bichat hospital (Paris) and at Avicenne hospital (Bobigny). Within the infectious diseases and tropical medicine departments, she welcomes people with a sexually transmitted infection, in particular HIV and hepatitis B or other types of infectious pathologies (tuberculosis, malaria, etc.).
She coordinates a sexual health course for migrants who have suffered sexual violence during their migratory journey and who are far from being supported with holistic support (medical, psychological, sexological, social, legal, etc.). It works in partnership with the Panzi hospital in the Democratic Republic of Congo specializing in sexual violence.
She will be there to answer your questions on these subjects and to guide you in the event of medical problems.
IMPULSE FESTIVALS has been created in October 2018 with the intention of organizing and supporting the festival throughout the years.
Thanks to Marceau Guerin (President), Baptiste Savatier (Treasurer), and Lyla Morel (Secretary), the festival has a clear structure and a helpful governance.
This project is also supported by a great team of incredible young adults and thirty (Marceau, Karine, Lyla, Mathilde, Victor, Léo, Lola, Simon, Edouard, Olivier, Noé and Angèle) and lots of volunteers who will be present during the festival. Without their impulse, this creation of beautiful madness would not have been possible.
