Orgasm coach comes to town

EXPLORE FEMALE sexuality with an orgasm coach; do some floating bodywork in the pool; or hear the wisdom of the elders from William Two Feather, of Apache descent, sharing the ancient verbal history of Native American people.

These are among many options on offer at the first annual Byron Bay Spirit Festival, being held at Mullumbimby from today until Sunday.

Bringing together yoga practitioners with musicians, peace advocates with a "healing soundshower" of Tibetan ringing bowls and chimes, chanting monks with dancing devas, and encompassing the esoteric healing arts, the festival will be held in venues all over town.

Its nerve - or soul - centre will be the Spirit Village, around the Civic Hall.

Here you can buy your yogi gear, chill out in a family or healing space, or check out the chai tent and stalls selling special yogi meals and locally-designed sacred jewellery.

And you can just pop into the cuddle tent for some warm fuzzies.

Festival director Alex Grant said the event unifies the worlds of yoga, tantra, music, dance and healing "in celebration of the self and our community".

"The Byron region has been a magnet for explorers and seekers," he said.

"We feel the time is ripe to integrate this diverse community within one transformative event that reflects our dreams and aspirations."
