A DAY OF HEALING TREATMENTS, CLASSES, MUSIC & GOOD VIBES
Set in Ventnor Botanical Garden - 22 beautiful acres of subtropical bliss on the South side of the Isle of Wight. The Healing Festival is a non profit event started in 2011 to raise money for the garden which at the time was threatened by closure. The whole garden is open and very family friendly.
We do it for the love, to spread healing and positivity to others and to raise money for local charities. In the past we have supported the Friends of the Botanic Garden, giving them every penny raised in the first year, totalling nearly £2000. We also donated to Mountbatten Hospice and this year, like last year we will support the Wight Squirrel Project and Red Squirrel Trust which protect the islands red squirrel population and their habitat. The money on the door goes to the garden and the £1 gift aid to our chosen charity.
As usual we offer free stalls to local charities. Please get in touch to reserve your place.
Our aim is to raise awareness of as many therapies as possible and to give a first-hand insight into the healing arts. Qualified therapists of different backgrounds are here to help, to explain, teach and heal. A minor injury; bad posture at the computer or family stress for example can affect other parts of your body and have a negative effect on your energy flow and overall health. Learn how the importance of breathing, diet and regular exercise can lead to a healthier, more balanced lifestyle, mentally, physically and spiritually.
Have your favourite treatment or try one you haven't heard of before, join in free classes and workshops or just relax and take in the therapeutic sounds and wonderful scenery. There is a great choice of healthy food and invigorating drinks available from the Edulis Restaurant using fresh ingredients.
We want to give you a mind opening experience so you leave calm, balanced, energized and smiling!
Loads of fun stuff on all day, so bring your family, there's so much for them to see and do!!
Remember sunscreen and remember to drink plenty of water everyday - it has healing benefits!! It stops headaches and dizziness, clears your skin of spots, reduces wrinkles by hydrating your skin and helps with weight loss, leads to a healthier heart and makes exercise easier. It is particularly important to drink water if you receive any kind of therapy.
Please get in touch if you would like to be involved in some way. We see the Healing Festival not as our festival but as 'your festival'. It is our energy and hard work that goes into organising the festival so people can come together to share, help heal and be healed. Please help us if you can. We look forward to seeing you soon!!
A massive thank you to everyone that gets involved, it can't work without your continued support, hard work and generosity.
