If you’ve ever wondered about trying reiki, acupuncture, massage, healing crystals, intuitive readings, astrology, essential oils or tarot (and more), the Illuminate Columbia Mind-Body-Spirit Festival from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on January 20 is a great place to start.
The participating 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. There will be free intensive workshops every hour on a wide range of topics, from the power of crystals to accessing past lives. Or just shop your way down the feng-shui-inspired aisles for handmade jewelry, unique holiday gifts and clothing, luxurious spa products and fascinating books.
It’s a wonder-filled day of natural health and spiritual rebalancing, 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.
Cost: $4 online tickets in advance/$6 admission at the door, with free admission for active and veteran military, children 16-and-under. Location: 8975 Guilford Rd., Ste. 170, Columbia, MD. For more information, visit IlluminateFestivals.com/Columbia.
