If you’ve ever been curious about trying reiki, acupuncture, massage, healing crystals, intuitive readings, astrology, essential oils or tarot (and more), the Illuminate Frederick Mind-Body-Spirit Festival on April 22 is a great place to start. It’s a wonder-filled day of natural health and spiritual rebalancing, open 11 a.m. till 6 pm.
Throughout the festival, 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. Choose from three free intensive workshops per hour on a wide range of topics, from the power of crystals to accessing past lives. Or just shop your way up and down the aisles for handmade jewelry, unique holiday gifts and clothing, luxurious spa products and fascinating books.
Illuminate Festivals seek to create a welcoming, inclusive place to learn, connect and enhance 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.
Admission is $4 (online); $6 (at the door) with free admission for active and veteran military and children 16-and-under. Location: Clarion Inn Conference Center, 5400 Holiday Dr., Frederick. For more information, visit IlluminateFestivals.com/Frederick.
