Natural Awakenings of the Coastal Carolinas

Two Illuminate Mind-Body-Spirit-Arts Festivals Coming to Area

If you’ve ever wondered about trying reiki, acupuncture, massage, healing crystals, intuitive readings, astrology, essential oils or tarot and many additional modality forms, consider attending an Illuminate Festival from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both on March 1 in Carolina Beach and on March 21 in Myrtle Beach.

Enjoy a day of wellness and spiritual re-balancing, and get to know the best of your local holistic community. 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.”

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. No two festivals are the same—check Illuminate Festival’s website for exhibitor details.
