The Illuminate Festivals announce their upcoming mind-body-spirit events: Illuminate Solomons will be held on October 15 and Illuminate Frederick will be held on October 22. Both events will run 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Each is a wonder-filled day of natural health and spiritual rebalancing to include acupuncture, massage, reiki, reflexology, energy work, essential oils and more, in mini-sessions that can be sampled on a walk-up basis. Vetted intuitive readers, angel communicators, psychic mediums and astrologers will offer their services at special festival rates. Free intensive workshops are offered each hour on a wide range of topics. Or just shop your way down the feng-shui-inspired aisles for crystals, handmade jewelry, unique 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: $5 with free admission for active and veteran military, children 16-and-under. Locations: Hilton Garden Inn Solomons, 13100 Dowell Rd., Solomons and Clarion Inn Frederick Event Center, 5400 Holiday Dr., Frederick. For more information, visit IlluminateFestivals.com.
