An annual event for spirit junkies and health enthusiasts, Modern Nirvana Summit, scheduled for September 23, will once again be set in Austin, TX. During the summit, participants will discover new practices, listen to transformative talks with world-renowned thought leaders, meet an incredible community of wellness lovers, and connect with top wellness brands to experience their products firsthand. 

This year’s lineup of wellness experts includes the humanitarian and recipient of this year’s Modern Nirvana Award Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Toni Garrn, the recipient of this year’s Modern Nirvana Consciousness Award and founder of the Isha Foundation Sadhguru.

In addition to the speaker series, there will be talks led by experts from a variety of backgrounds, live energetic healings from teachers, special gifts and classes not available anywhere else, and opportunities to work with typically booked-out healers. Participants can enjoy powerful activations with Modern Nirvana’s co-founders, including a class with breathwork master Bryant Ikar Wood, an energizing movement dance activity, and a powerful speaking panel led by Kat Graham, an actress, singer, producer, and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador. Certified emotion code practitioner Frank Elaridi will also be on-hand to clear negative trapped emotions for volunteers from the audience, live on stage.

Attendees can also enjoy treatments from HigherDose, an infrared technology company, and Braintap, an app and headset that optimizes the brain’s potential. In between activations, ticket holders can sample carefully crafted supplements, skincare, and beverages from conscious brands like Fable and Mane, Tru Kava, Radical Roots, Wizard Sciences, Akasha Sacred, Troscriptions, Roots, and more. This year, attendees will also receive a copy of The Modern Nirvana Oracle Deck: Awaken Your Intuition and Deepen Your Awareness one month ahead of its official release. 

“Whether you are an experienced yoga practitioner or just starting out on your wellness journey, The Modern Nirvana Summit is going to have something new and transformative for you,” says Frank Elaridi, co-founder of the Modern Nirvana Conference and co-author of The Modern Nirvana Oracle Deck. “I can’t think of any other place that so perfectly combines ancient healing from Ayurvedic hair oil and herbs to modern technologies like red light therapy and meditation headsets, plus cold plunges, trying out Dave Asprey’s new coffee called Danger Coffee, and a speaker lineup of mind-blowing thought leaders.”
