Our Envision guests have decompressed and made a statement about their Envision experiences.
Community, new-found friendships & bliss radiate from these statements from our Envision attendees.
We want to highlight these experiences that encompass our community and share how our gathering has transformed, educated and rejuvenated the lives of our attendees into a single collective. We relish on the love our community and it is truly one of our holistic and founding pillars that completes Envision.
Stephen Brooks, Co-Founder of Envision, recently conducted a Facebook Live and dive into all the different elements that truly make up a one living and breathing community.
“It’s amazing how we can make these communities grow. How we can make them deeper and stronger. Since we started Envision that was one thing that was always very important to us. We wanted to deepen that level of community. Within the Envision community there’s a bunch of different micro-communities that we celebrate,” Brooks said.
He continued on to explain these micro-communities range from music, yoga, to permaculture aspects and all bring people to Envision for many different reasons. These communities break the randomness that can encapsulate our lives. From the people we work around to our physical housing neighbors, Envision dives away from this sort of curated randomness, to bring people of similar interest together.
We want to highlight our Envision Community and ignite special interest groups to form. Take the first step towards your Envision community experience and hear it from Envision attendees themselves.
“I am from the United States, and I have attended quite a few festivals within my country. Last year was my first experience at Envision and my first time in Costa Rica. I cannot believe the magic that occurred in this beautiful location. Every other festival I have previously attended now pales in comparison to the rich culture and wholehearted values that Envision promotes to their guests. It was like a whole family of 5,000 people moving together as one to create something worthwhile. I cannot wait to journey back to this festival in the upcoming year. I can’t imagine missing it!”
“Envision a place where you meet people from all over the world, where palm trees applaud, where the sun is being celebrated for lighting one more day of our lives, where you feel joy as intense as a child. I kept telling to myself in those Envision days how lucky I am to be there. Now I only hope that I will be as lucky next year.”
“Una de las mejores experiencias que uno puede tener. Mucha comunidad, amor, luz, arte, música, yoga, natualeza; todo en una misma vibración y lugar. Inolvidable!!!”
“One of the best experiences you can have. Lots of community, love, light, art, music, yoga, natualeza; all in the same vibration and place. Unforgettable!!!”
“A potent seed was planted nearly seven years ago. Witnessing this thriving living community take root and grow skyward, now branching across the globe has been a true dream manifest. The fruits are now coming again into season, and I will be there once again to share them with you all!”
“Beautiful experience in so many ways. You haven’t seen a sunset quite like this one, while enjoying a phenomenal collective of art, sounds, & creative activities. A lot of love and magic shared at Envision.”
“Lo llaman festival, pero realmente es una Familia. No la conocía al llegar, no me imagine lo que me enseñaría, ni como me curaría. Sin embargo, hoy en día espero todo el año por volver a sentirme hallado, una vez mas en casa con mi familia global.”
“They call it festival, but it’s really a family. I didn’t know her when I arrived, I didn’t imagine what she would teach me, nor how I However, today I hope all year to feel again found, once again at home with my global family.”
“Envision was the door I opened to the rest of my life. I could not be happier and more thankful for the opportunities that envision has created for me. The friends I met there and right after have lasted and will last a lifetime. Pura vida!!”
Faces of Envision Sharing Their Stories
“Pura Vida- I have fallen in love with the connection we all share. This connection is love, a love so deep you can’t help but feel your heart open with pure happiness. I hope that everyone will come to know this love in order to truly understand why we are here on this planet. Words seem silly in order to describe this sensation I feel but I hope you will come to understand. I love you…
Envision is a community, I have been to other festivals before where the energy is welcoming, but when I came to Envision I felt like I was home. No other festival has ever given me the wholeness I felt while I was at Envision. It provoked one of the reasons I travel the world. I want to spread the love that I found with others, while also finding the like minded individuals who I know are out there wandering too.”

Finding Your Meaning In The Jungle
“Envision was where the veil lifted and I learned to see myself outside of myself. The oneness of everything without separation. True connection with the jungle, the community, and everything else in existence. I figure that’s what what love really is.”
– Vinny Calogero
Knowledge and Intention
“Envision is the most pure, intentional and sustainable festival I have yet to experience. The energy of the jungle, music, art and the festival family infiltrates my veins and empowers me to connect fully to the pure, wild, strong and ecstatic creature that lies in the root of my being. The workshops left me inspired with priceless new knowledge and full of tools and practices for a healthier existence on this planet. Gatherings like this are helping to heal the wounds of human existence…
To me, I feel that Envision Festival is the leader in being mindful of the health of the planet, and therefore the health of all beings on earth. The infrastructure feels more intentional and pure than that of other festivals. Instead of a wild party, Envision does a wonderful job of creating a held space where we can devotionally and ceremoniously celebrate life, love, nature, and most of all interconnectedness.”
