VENUE & FOODwe want you to feel good!
Château Anand lays on the banks of the river Anglin in the center of France, a peaceful and protected land surrounded by overwhelming scenery.
Since the moment you arrive you can feel the beautiful energy that has been building up after years of hosting Kundalini Yoga events, and students and volunteers from different spiritual horizons.
We are really grateful to 3HO association —owner of the Château— for making this possible.
Take a walk in the forest, swim in the river, gaze at the stars... and feel One with nature

The vibrant center of the festival. A huge tent where we will all gather every day, and a perfect spot to chill at anytime. It is the space where the main night events will take place.

Food to reconnect with ourselves, others, the Earth and the Sky!
For us food is a very important matter —maybe because the team is mainly french?— that’s why we have chosen HÉLOÏSE FERBER and La Cuisine qui relie, a site-specific catering company which uses food as a way to deeply reconnect with ourselves, others, and even the Earth and the Sky!
Offering a nutritive plant-based diet to support our bodies with energy and lightness. Caring for our intimate self with comforting food made with love.
RECONNECTING WITH OUR EARTH —always beneath us— as we enjoy food locally produced and organically grown. Re-discover the gifts that our land has for us, in its own season and time. Receiving this abundance in acknowledgement of the state of our soil and environment, welcoming it with respect and giving back with conscious consumer choices.
RECONNECTING TO THE SKY, the divine and the spiritual, as Life’s energy travels through every single food to feed our body, soul and spirit. Seating back in the circle of Life, as eaters and consumers and, one day, as eated and consumed. Touching the fragility of one’s existence by acknowledging our finite human presence fueled by earthly matters.
Our chef Héloïse Ferber discovered her passion for cooking as she was working the land in farms throughout the globe, and realized the need for connection between our earth and our plates.
Her travels allowed her to broaden her vision of food and to receive knowledge and techniques from different traditions. She has been trained as a sustainable vegetarian chef at The Natural Gourmet Institute in New York City and is now focusing on bringing awareness and connection through food and cooking.
Impulse festival is a great inspiration for her work and she is delighted to offer the nourishment for this powerful youth gathering supported by her amazing team of young talented chefs from diverse countries.
