RELAX THE BODY, FEED THE MIND, CHEER THE SPIRIT
What could Elvis Presley, the chakras, and nature spirits possibly have in common? All are subjects of talks at the annual TheosoFest in Wheaton held by the Theosophical Society in America. This free event offers the public an entertaining opportunity to explore topics related to spiritual and physical well-being. More than twenty presenters will speak on diverse topics including Ayurveda, astrology, numerology, social action, healing, forgiveness, and freedom from stress. Visitors may learn about crystal bowls and reflexology; walk a labyrinth; have a psychic reading; and experiment with Qijong. A Kid’s Korner provides storytelling, face-painting, sing-along, and a puppet show for children of all ages.
Visitors may also enjoy informational booths and a variety of arts-and-crafts vendors, sample tasty vegetarian food, browse in the Quest Book Shop, explore the world-class library, or simply enjoy the elegantly landscaped forty acres of grounds. Yoga, tai chi, and meditation practices will take place throughout the day, and an outdoor drumming circle closes the event.
The festival showcases the Theosophical Society’s mission, which is to promote unity among all peoples, respect for all life, exploration of consciousness, and spiritual transformation for the individual.
TheosFest takes place on Saturday, September 7, from 10 am to 5 pm at the Theosophical Society’s national headquarters, 1926 N Main Street in Wheaton. While admission is free, parking is $5, with no charge for hybrid cars or bicycles. For details, visit www.theosophical.org or call 630.668.1571.
