If you’ve ever wondered about trying reiki, acupuncture, massage, healing crystals, intuitive readings, astrology, essential oils or tarot (and more!), the Illuminate Annapolis Mind-Body-Spirit Festival, from 11 a.m to 6 p.m on October 22 is a great place to start. The event will be held at the Student Union at Anne Arundel Community College. Throughout the day, practitioners will conduct mini-sessions on a walk-up basis. Vetted intuitive readers, angel communicators, psychic mediums and astrologers will offer their services at special festival rates.
Attendees will have the opportunity to choose from three free intensive workshops per hour. These talks will feature a wide range of topics, from the power of crystals to accessing past lives. Participants will also have the opportunity to shop their way down the feng-shui-inspired aisles for handmade jewelry, unique holiday gifts and clothing, luxurious spa products and fascinating books.
This wonder-filled day of natural health and spiritual rebalancing seeks to create a welcoming as well as an inclusive place to learn, connect and enhance one’s well-being. Festival founder, Judy Bazis encourages attendees to “just look around, see what you are naturally drawn to and give it a try.” There is always plenty to discover, for everyone from the newly curious to the avid practitioner.
