River Rituals – A Full Moon Celebration

City life can be a draining experience and living in urban areas can have a major impact on our biological clock and health.

As a way to reconnect with ourselves and nature, Chi-Bu Vietnam and La Holista Co. Ltd. are extremely proud to launch the first full moon celebrations on the beautiful banks of Ông Kèo river, 50 km away from Thao Dien, D2, in collaboration with Kashew Cheese, Yoga Pod, The Hive Saigon and Bookurshows.

Chi-Bu is a community driven, multipurpose, wonderland. It’s a growing space that brings people together to nurture, inspire and share in creative expression.

About Full Moon Celebrations:

The Full Moon is considered to be the harbinger of an ending era…a time for unburdening our lives of the things that no longer serve us…to release…to gather your tribe…to harness the cleansing energy of our natural elements.
