Starlight Wellbeing Expo beams in

THE TRUE believers were getting their crystal rocks off down at the A&I Hall at Bangalow on the weekend as the 13th annual Starlight Wellbeing Expo kicked on with another full program of eclectic therapies, practises and workshops from the playfully exotic to the unapologetically bizarre.

Festival founder Raym Richards beamed as he watched over the labyrinth of stalls and consultation rooms.

“We’ve been going strong for 13 years now,” he said.

“It was my baby, my brainchild. I could see there were so many amazing therapists that people didn’t know about because they were locked away in their consulting rooms.”

The program welcomed healers, readers and practitioners espousing on the virtues of meditation, finding success, crop circles, crystal skull activation and ‘the fractal harmonics of bliss’. Star speaker Dan Winter spoke on the golden mean ratio and sacred geometry.
