Eighth Festival of Light slated for Nov. 11 and 12

October 17, 2006

BERKELEY SPRINGS, W.Va. - The eighth annual Festival of Light brings more than 30 practitioners of psychic, spiritual and physical healing techniques to Berkeley Springs for two days of readings and treatments on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 11 and 12.

The psychic fair is open to the public from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days at the Inn and Spa at Berkeley Springs.

"As chaos in the world seems to increase, people more actively seek guidance of various sorts," said Jeanne Mozier, an astrologer and longtime supporter of the event. Festival attendees can spend the days seeking answers and insights from practitioners reading past life patterns and Tarot cards or using tools like pendulums and etched stones. A wide range of products are also available, including drums, essential oils, homeopathic medical remedies for humans and pets, jewelry, books, art and more.

Ongoing demonstrations and activities include aura photography, Ayurvedic aromatherapy, angel communication and live blood cell analysis. There will be an acupuncturist and practitioners of Huna and re-connective healing techniques. Maps also are available for an informal psychic tour of town including more than a half dozen shops and spas.

The Festival of Light began as a way for a group of local participants to take their own spiritual work out into the larger community. "Each year the event keeps expanding," said Mary Ellen Snyder, one of the organizers. "It gives us a central focus at least once a year." Snyder highlighted the location at the Inn & Spa. "The Garden Room at the Inn and Spa is so light-filled that it makes the ideal location for the work of this festival," she said.

Activities begin on Friday at the Ice House with a drumming and dance circle from 8 to 10 pm.

The Inn and Spa is adjacent to Berkeley Springs State Park downtown. The Ice House is at the corner of Independence and Mercer streets.
