The Heartfulness Festival is a unique, two-day event, which will take place for the first time in the Republic of Moldova. The Festival is organized by the Moldovan representatives of the international network Heartfulness (

The Heartfulness Festival is an absolutely unique event – it is a two-day experience of how living in harmony with our hearts and with nature can improve our lives.

Meditation is a way of living and not a religion. It helps us reduce stress and lead a calm and successful life.

Meditations are very useful for efficient work.  Many international companies and successful people around the world use meditation.

Meditation, healthy food and yoga are very easy to practice – just try it.

The Heartfulness Festival is an event for people who are open to new experience – it is an opportunity to learn new things and to have a nice joyful practice.

The Heartfulness Festival is not a typical fest with noisy music, barbeque and dances – just harmony and health. And it is free of charge.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Heartfulness Festival!
