The FourЭ ethnic ecological festival

The "FourЭ" ethnic ecological festival is held in the middle of August, and "Э" represents four words: ecology, ethnicity, emotions, and evolution. These principles are important for human spiritual development. The festival's decoration and overall ambiance are designed to reflect these four colors, each symbolizing a different aspect of the festival's concept: green for ecology, purple for evolution, pink for emotions, and orange for ethnicity.

The festival, which celebrated its ninth year in 2018, takes place in the Almaty region of Kazakhstan. It showcases the world's best traditions, featuring music, dance, legends, fairy tales, and participants in national costumes. The festival also brings together masters of various spiritual directions, yoga practitioners, and psychologists.

In the evenings, musical performances entertain the guests, featuring musicians from Kazakhstan and neighboring countries. The festival provides a unique opportunity to experience the rich cultural and spiritual traditions of the region.
