The concept

Here's what forms the foundation for everything we do.

Let's share experiences that help us redefine the rules by which we live.

Founder of Nibana

Nibana is about authenticity

Nibana's mission is to create shared experiences where we (re)define the rules by which we live and where we can be our most authentic selves. We invite you to experiment and explore. To connect with others and to reflect on your experiences. Nothing is ever expected of you, yet the possibilities are endless.

Everyone is different. And when everyone does exactly what feels right to them in each moment, it creates a wonderful environment. There's so much we can learn from each other. There's so much we can learn about ourselves. Come play and find out what it means to be your most authentic self.

Back to the beginning

It all started with a brainstorm in the park. We want to acknowledge that some people have commented that this video mentions tantra and kink right at the start. This makes these topics seem more prominent than they're meant to be.
