The Mind Body Spirit Festival Healing, Meditation and Music
with Shophound Alexia .
he 31st annual Mind Body Spirit Festival takes place over the May Bank Holiday weekend at the Royal Horticultural Hall. This is an immensely popular event which has seen New Age concepts and practitioners progress from what was once considered to be the rather dotty lifestyle fringe to mainstream. A daily programme is packed with workshops, performances, music, meditations and treatments providing immensely varied paths to inspiration, mental and spiritual expansion and fulfilment, body and soul healing and detoxing.
Each day brings different presenters, authors, performers and exhibitors from around the world; familiar speakers such as Dan Millman and Dick Sutphen from the USA, new faces such as Barbel Mohr (The Cosmic Ordering Service) and Dr Mark Atkinson (GMTV Doctor), and musicians from many backgrounds.
I look forward to enlightenment at Australian Chris James's workshop, (Friday, 25 May), To the heart of Sound where we shall explore the relationship between meditation, sound, healing & singing; discovering the power & beauty of esoteric, or innermost sound & its ability to reconnect you to your heart. Which takes me to gongmaster Don Conreaux and his deep gong bath meditations, (Monday, 28 May), used for sound healing and transformation. Sound has always had a particular resonance in my life as a spiritual, meditation and healing tool and I have personally experienced its power as a healing medium for chronic back pain.

Burlington Bertie's Accommodation Choice:

Thistle Victoria is adjacent to Victoria mainline railway station, within walking distance of the Royal Horticultural Hall, Westminster Cathedral and Buckingham Palace, should you be invited to afternoon tea. All the West End attractions - shops, Theatreland and restaurants - are just a short hop away. I have always liked this elegant Victorian hotel from a bygone age which has now been upgraded and offers really excellent value for money. Take advantage of its special May/June discounts. There a good restaurant, lounge and bar facilities.
