Festival of Light Psychic Fair and Alternative Healing Expo
Saturday and Sunday, November 14 & 15, 2015
10am – 5pm
@ the Ice House
$5 admission each day
The 18th annual Berkeley Springs Festival of Light showcases nearly 100 readers, healers and purveyors of sacred objects in the largest psychic fair and alternative healing expo in the region. Staged at the Ice House on Saturday and Sunday, November 14 and 15, the festival is open to the public from 10am to 5pm both days. “Attendance is almost 1,000 people over the two days so we urge them to come early to arrange appointments with some of the most popular readers and bodyworkers,” said Maryelen Willinghan, a longtime organizer of the event.
In addition to the practitioners, admission each day includes entry to any or all of 16 lectures, mini-workshops and demonstrations. Topics include everything from palmistry, shamanic journeying and dowsing to Akashic Records. Major talks include astrologer Jeanne Mozier’s predictions for 2016 and Rosemary Gulley’s interactive improving psychic protection on Saturday and Mare Cromwell’s “Hope During Times of Great Change” on Sunday. The event closes on Sunday afternoon with Eddy Rubin’s participatory yoga a divine sound vibration.
Throughout the two days, attendees can seek individual answers and insights from practitioners reading everything from past life patterns and Tarot cards to etched stones, auras or the swing of a pendulum. “With all the uncertainty in the world today, we can anticipate lots of people asking questions about finances and jobs along with health and romance,” said Willinghan. A wide range of products are also available including jewelry, crystals, essential oils and flower essences.
”We have the bodyworkers, massage therapists, Reiki masters and the like, set up on the second floor” said Willinghan. “People can go from one to another in their own version of an alternative health buffet.”
The festival began in 1998 by a local group as a way of taking their spiritual work out into the larger community. “Each year the event keeps expanding,” said Willinghan. “This year is the biggest ever. We simply could not fit any more vendors into the space.”
She encouraged attendees to visit the special gallery exhibit at the Ice House. Warm and Wonderful is a holiday gift show featuring the one-of-a-kind work of nearly 30 regional artists.
