Yoga, pottery and workshops are just some of the experiences waiting for you at the Shambhala Fields instalment of Lost Paradise 2023.
Spanning yoga sessions to seminar talks, the purpose-built instalment runs day-through-night across all three dates of Lost Paradise’s run from December 28 to January 1.
This year’s Shambhala Fields itinerary boasts a starry list of speakers including uber-viral ceramicist Pottery Boy, Australian actor and Love Simon star Keiynan Lonsdale, world-famous biologist and yogi Simon Borg-Olivier and musician Darcy Stokes, among many others.
They’re joined on the program by over 35 yoga teachers, artists and facilitators, each of whom will guide specialty experiences you won’t find anywhere else at Lost Paradise.
One such experience is the much-anticipated return of Soul Sanctuary, a healing arts space within Shambhala Fields hosting tarot card readings, massage and astrology activities.
If Lost Paradise is a desert, then Shambhala Fields is its tranquil oasis; a much-needed space for reprieve and rest amongst the bustle of one of the country’s biggest music festivals.
Offering a quieter retreat within the festival site, the instalment makes room for holistic experiences for the mind, body and soul, emphasising wellness and creativity.
Included in this endeavour is a ceramics workshop hosted by Pottery Boy, a liberating dance session guided by Mimi Elashiry, and Borg-Olivier’s renowned 5 Dimensional Flow yoga class.
Elsewhere, Dear Pluto will run a speed dating session to help you land your festival crush, while Ambience After Dark, Stokes and Chaitanyashree will offer workshops and music-focussed sessions around sound healing, ambient music and breathwork.
If all of that wasn’t enough, Shambhala Fields will also be home to an extensive cultural program curated by local First Nations Australians.
Here, festival-goers can immerse themselves in traditional song, storytelling, and meditation, with weaving lessons and traditional dance classes led by Charleen Aguiar Dos Santos and Phil Walford, respectively.
All of this without even mentioning the surrounding festival, which boasts a lineup so starry it warrants its own constellation. This year’s edition of Lost Paradise promises to be its biggest yet, with Australian juggernauts Flume, Dom Dolla, Lime Cordiale and PNAU each set to grace one of the festival’s many enticing stages.

The lineup elsewhere includes the likes of Foals, Bicep, Carl Cox, The Jungle Giants and BIRDEE 王煒, just to name a few. The sheer volume of talent should be enough to get you to Glenworth Valley for the ultimate new year’s party, but the promise of Shambhala Fields makes Lost Paradise 2023 basically impossible to miss.
