A Kildare man who began studying the art of Accunect after noticing an imbalance in how people view themselves, is set to take part in the Mind, Body, Spirit and Wellness Festival and Dublin’s RDS from October 29-31.
Ireland’s longest established wellness festival celebrates its 21st birthday this year with 75 life-enhancing talks from top Irish and international experts in the fields of positive psychology and self-help, plus exhibits by over 150 complementary and healing practitioners.
David Doran, from Inchaquire, Cookstown practises the relatively new therapy which, he believes, allows inner healing.
“I began studying Accunect because I saw an imbalance with people in how they see themselves,” he said.
“Accunect accesses the whole of our consciousness and allows the body to heal inner scars and fears.
“It activates the body’s ability to heal at all levels, working on the basis that the mind, body and spirit are all connected.”
Leading US Feng Shui expert Amanda Collins, whose clients include Bloomingdales and Dreamworks filmstudios, will reveal how you can set up your home to find financial freedom.
Top New York personal trainer Kaman Ryan will provide a taste of Animal Flow, the latest exercise trend from the US.
Psychologist Michaela Avlund, author of Happiness Skills, will be explaining how increased joy and well-being is within everyone’s reach, while nutritional therapist Ola Mazurkiewicz will be giving diet tips to tackle your personal energy.
Free yoga taster sessions are also being provided at this year’s festival with 20 minute to one hour classes available three times a day in a variety of disciplines including laughter yoga, soulful yoga, yin yoga and animal flow yoga.
“The amazing spectrum of holistic and complementary practitioners at Mind Body Spirit makes for a truly stimulating, vibrant and potentially life-changing experience,” said festival organiser Louis O’Sullivan.
“People will leave the Mind Body Spirit with a smile on their face having enjoyed eye-opening new experiences and meaningful engagement with people and ideas that can benefit them.”
With over 150 stands, visitors can explore everything from angels and aromatherapy to reiki and reflexology, with sound therapy, massage, meditation, mindfulness, bio-energy healing, crystals, chakra tools, Tibetan bowls and yoga therapy there to be discovered.
The live stage will be buzzing with free entertainment as a lively mix of 45 performances including music, dance, drumming and yoga demonstrations take place over the three-day event.
