If you’ve ever wondered about trying reiki, acupuncture, massage, healing crystals, intuitive readings, astrology, essential oils or tarot (and more), the upcoming Illuminate Festivals, held throughout the region, are a great place to start. Illuminate Frederick will be held on October 20, at the Clarion Inn Conference Center. Illuminate Solomons will be held on October 27, at the Hilton Garden Inn. Illuminate Annapolis will be held on November 3. at the Anne Arundel Community College Student Union. All three festivals will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Throughout the festivals, practitioners conduct mini-sessions on a walk-up basis. Vetted intuitive readers, angel communicators, psychic mediums and astrologers offer their services at special festival rates. Free intensive workshops are offered every hour on a wide range of topics, from the power of crystals to accessing past lives. Bring your gift list and shop for handmade jewelry, unique gifts and clothing, luxurious natural spa products and books.
It’s a wonder-filled day of wellness and spiritual rebalancing. Illuminate Festivals create a welcoming, inclusive place to learn, connect and enhance well-being. Festival founder Judy Bazis encourages attendees to “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.
