Refining the Art of Being Alive!

“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 Founders

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.

 

Emmanuel : The organization Madman

He is the founder of the IVOLVE training organization. Coach in relational development, Holacracy, collective intelligence and shared-governance organizations.

Emmanuel works in organizations and institutions, on the themes of power and authority, group therapy facilitation, individual and collective development, emerging models of governance, stress management, creativity and collective intelligence.

Driven by his passion for human people and shamanism, he explores links between traditional healing and occidental therapies. His approach is inspired by the dynamic spiral of Clare Graves, Augusto Boal’s theatre-forum, MAPS research and Brian Robertson’s Holacracy.

Through his experiences at Burning man and Nowhere, he brings a part of the Burn identity to Impulse.

THE CONSTRUCTION LEAD  

Did you ever see a man who is known to every Leroy-Merlin official in France and every Home depot official in the United States?  

Did you ever talk to a man who can build shared-homes in Paris and who can study the trees in Amazonia and new-mexico at the same time?

This guy, Marceau guerin, P.H.D. uses his brain and hands every day to save our planet from collapse, and every summer since last year uses them do the building of Impulse Festival. 

If you need a tool, a scientific or a work one, go to him.

Thanks to her experience in organizations, Mathilde will be our support in helping our teachers and artists to be in the best conditions possible. 

She will bend the program thanks to her powers, and thanks to her, we’ll have the best line-up for 2020. 
No time or budget constraints will resist to her will!

 

 

OUR SWISS-KNIFE, THE ALL LEADS ASSISTANT

She can change your day in several seconds with her skills and her smile. We’re looking forward to be helped by her talents again this year. 

THE ASSOCIATION

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.
