3 mins read

Patina Maldives, Fari Islands is set to host ‘Cosmopolitan Ocean’ festival, the second installment of its signature Pathways series, from 26 to 29 October. 

From elevated West Coast streetwear to innovative Kentish skincare; ocean art activism to transformative healing; the resort is collaborating with a stellar ensemble cast that will headline the four-day festival.

“After the success of series opener, Experience as Healing in June, Cosmopolitan Ocean brings together the worlds of fashion, art and healing for a four-day cross-cultural festival that puts the ocean centre stage – recognising and celebrating the true depth of its historic role in the evolution of today’s interconnected human culture,” Patina Maldives said. 

An inter-sensory opening ritual will see Welsh electronic musician Kelly Lee Owens soundscape the launch of a bespoke Cosmopolitan Ocean scent from Margate’s natural skincare and wild fragrance wizards, Haeckels. LA- based streetwear label Stampd will drop Patina’s much-anticipated debut clothing collaboration, a capsule collection that reimagines the role of the ocean in the circle of life. Activist and Oceanic Society’s Artist-in-Nature, Pam Longobardi will add a large-scale installation addressing the pressing issue of ocean plastics to the island’s notable permanent collection; while healing arts practitioner and Experience as Healing alumnus, Avery Whitmore, will reprise his rapturously received sound healing, breathwork and meditation residency. 

Pathways is a new signature series of events from Patina Maldives that seeks to stimulate and nurture lasting personal transformations, habitualise new lifestyle practices and imbue guests’ lives with greater depth and intention. The series debuted in June with Experience as Healing, an inspirational weekend of wellness encompassing ancient spiritual practices, positive drinking and the fast-moving frontiers of biohacking. Leaders in psychosocial health, nutritional science and esoteric practices including Æcorn cofounder Claire Warner, digital wellness expert and global healthcare futurist Tony Estrella and the aforementioned Avery Whitmore hosted a two-day programme encouraging seasoned yogis and curious dabblers alike to unfold, unfurl and open the hidden doors within, in pursuit of transformative healing.
