About the Summit
The Sandbox Global Summit is the flagship event of the Sandbox community to gather and connect in person, on a global scale. Originally a 5-day experience, this year changed to 6, the Summit is a space for attendees to co-create an unforgettable time. It is a collaborative effort with workshops ranging from personal and professional development to wellness and creativity, creating local and global impact initiatives, performances and dancing, dining experiences, games, and other activities.
Previous workshops ranged from poetry writing, storytelling, sacred shadow theatre, anger management, breathwork, and creative movement, to climate change initiatives, problem-solving, money management, and crypto – all hosted by attendees.
The Sandbox Summit in Mexico was just incredible - it’s difficult to put into words what I felt as a guest, coming into a community and allowing myself to feel vulnerable with 249 strangers over 4 days. The truth is… it came naturally, and I realised that you will only feel as vulnerable as you allow yourself to - so you make your own experience. I really found a community where people are open to helping and connecting with each other. Everyone is so warm and friendly, hugs lovers and cuddle puddle champions. I left the summit thinking that I wanted to be with these people all the time - so contagious, inspiring, and motivating! I have learned so much about myself and others. It was a life-changing experience!! I can’t wait for the next one!

I came to the summit in Mexico as a guest, a friend of Sandbox. From the very preparation stage of the summit, I decided to be involved and fully experience the power of this gathering. The openness, creativity, and diversity of the Sandbox community were astonishing. I felt welcomed to share and shine and co-create the magic. There were so many unique, heartwarming, and enriching moments: a crazily beautiful talent show, different out-of-the-box experiences offered by others, my own workshop on sexuality, and the mind-blowing fiery party night: all that in a place lovely embedded in the heart of Mexican nature. The Sandbox Summit could be a dream but luckily it was the reality empowering and never forgettable: I found friends, loved fully, and was my true deep self.

Exhilarating is the word that comes to mind when I think of the Summit. From the world-class speakers to the deepening of old friendships and the novelty of new ones, every minute was packed with depth and laughter. The impact of this event reverberated for months jolting my joy and creativity to new heights!

No, unfortunately not. While it’s great that you’re dating a Sandboxer, we want to ensure guests really want to experience the Summit for their own personal benefit and are willing to contribute rather than merely being a +1.
That’s great! We endeavour to get back to you within a month of your application.
