Music & Dance

Live concerts, singing circles, ecstatic dance, movement workshops, sound healings… Movement, silence, laughter, singing – a nourishing ground for body, mind and soul.

Personal growths

Sustainability, spiritual philosophy, satsang, self-development, inspiration, reflection and looking ahead – an oasis in everyday life, arriving and pausing in the safe harbour of our growing tribe.

Tony Sarantopoulos

„If you can dream it, you can do it.“ This quote has been the common theme in Tony’s life for a long time. When a burn-out demanded his attention a few years ago, he went on a trip around the world, gathered many different experiences and impressions and transformed his burn-out into a burn-in, with the help of alternative healing methods he encountered along the way. Tony’s awareness and belief ever since: He loves his life and lives his dream. His motto: Let go of what has previously made you unhappy and only do what makes you happy. As a believer in permanent paradisiac states, Tony provides us with one thing above all through AGAPE ZOE – courage … to live a self-determined, conscious, loving & liberated life. The dream: Creating a place of mindful encounters and an homage to love (Agápē) & the good life (Zoé). The AGAPE ZOE Healing Arts Festival was born with regular WE festivals in Berlin and Hamburg. And once the annual AGAPE ZOE Summer Festival on the Greek island of Corfu had been established, another international destination soon followed: the AGAE ZOE Koh Phangan Holistic Gathering in beautiful Thailand. As a passionate host with Greek roots, Tony knows how to bring people together and give them a platform for diverse encounters and (self-)healing. AGAPE ZOE Festival is Tony’s invitation for all of us to EXPLORE our very own of many ways to ENJOY life and BE conscious.

Anika Studenroth

With lots of experience, foresight and empathy, Anika manages all things essential in front of and even more so behind the scenes of AGAPE ZOE. Here, she rocks the whole administrative load all the way to sending out festival tickets. She also overlooks the festival cash desk & check-in procedures. Nothing can faze her, and her smile is immediately contagious. Always optimistic and full of energy, she sets processes in motion and keeps them running, even when everything around is upside down. Also, in previous positions as head of editorial department, academy lead or project manager, she has always kept an eye on the big picture and excelled in managing background structures, ensuring everything runs smoothly. She first came in touch with AGAPE ZOE as a volunteer at the Corfu Summer Festival 2018. Her enthusiasm and strength in implementing processes quickly fell on fertile ground in Greece. Thus, ever since she unfolds her practical and creative side as part of AGAPE ZOE’s core team. She keeps grounded and in the moment with lots of yoga and meditation – our “organization angel” within the dream team!

Vera Jakoby

Greeting, hugging, listening, connecting, looking out for others, and holding space … since 2017, Vera has been swarming through the AGAPE ZOE cosmos with much emotion, always foresightful and thinking outside the box. It all started as a volunteer at the first ever Corfu Summer Festival, and since then, she has been the smiling face of the welcome desk & check-in at festivals and gatherings, she co-hosts the opening & closing ceremonies, looks after the workshop leaders, team & participants during the events, and is “just always there”. Being the creative word factory she is, and with her professional background as a copywriter, translator and editor, Vera also creates content for the AGAPE ZOE newsletters, flyers, and website. Besides that, she’s busy doing what she does best: spreading love & attention, lending an ear & a shoulder, finding solutions, twirling around with a helping hand, and holding the tribe together – as tribe mama & space holder, full of joie de vivre & soulfulness, empathy, and with an infectious laugh.

Olivia Wellensiek

LIV is the creator of the visual appearance of AGAPE ZOE. As a trained media designer for digital and print media and a graduate communication designer, she loves natures magnificent beauty with its complexity in combination with modern simplicity.
Liv has not limited herself to one design discipline – she conceives, advises, photographs, collages, illustrates, layouts, programs, etc. for the environmental projects, culture and healing arts – depending on the need, communication channel and means. What counts is the person, the content, the product and the message that wants to be understood.
Liv is on a journey to explore and unfold her and your potential to create healthy connections between people and nature. She is currently focussing all her energy into the oasis in her forest garden and her horses at home in Biesenthal after her travels in recent years. For her, it is time that we finally (re)discover ourselves – and lead our world back into a healthy system. She herself has been an enthusiastic “breather” and dancer for 7 years and keeps various breathwork groups in motion. She became a certified breathwork therapist and is holding space for events and sessions. She combines her experience from Berlin’s nightlife, where she was at home for a long time, her time in deep nature and travels, spirituality in its natural understandings and offers us the Oase Rave Berlin and the Oase Forest Weekender. Find LIVs offerings  in our program, too.

Alena has been working for AGAPE ZOE in the social media department since 2019, and mainly feeds our Instagram & Facebook channels with all the updates about our festivals & gatherings. In addition, as graphics support, she adds her creative spark to some of our flyers and marketing material. When she visited the AGAPE ZOE Festival in Berlin for the first time, she found exactly what she had been missing in Berlin: a wonderful power place with great people, where so much happens and everyone can just be. Exactly the type of slow movement that is often neglected in our fast-paced world, especially in big cities. As a yoga teacher and media scientist, Alena deals with the intersection & connectivity of media and spirituality. In addition, she is busy travelling and deep into the practice of Ayurveda and meditation.
