WhatsOn Sep 02, 2015 by Brenda Jefferies Flamborough Review

A healing fair is coming to north Flamborough this Labour Day weekend, and residents are welcome to attend the free, multi-cultural event.

The sixth installment of Fix Our World All Ages Healing Fair, which has been held at several locations throughout the Hamilton area, will make a stop at Fernbrook Resort Sat, Sept. 5 and Sun., Sept. 6.

Linda Lannigan, a member of the Fix Our World team, noted that it’s important to move the non-profit festival each year.

“We move it around because everyone needs to learn and have access to it,” she explained.

With a focus on education, the fair’s schedule is packed with demonstrations, musical performances, workshops and ceremonies.

Saturday’s activities kick off at 9 a.m. with an opening address led by Mohawk Elder Allan Loft, followed by an artistic dance performance by students from the Nancy Campbell Collegiate Institute in Stratford.

From 12-5 p.m., Shanti Yoga Studio will lead yoga, meditation and chanting sessions; at 1 p.m. guests are invited to join Tribal Thunder in a drum circle.

At 5 p.m., attendees can take part in the Perpetual Peace Project, a fusion of songs, stories, chants and dance.

On Sunday, Ottawa author and holistic consultant Jane Burning will be on site.

In addition to leading a Tai Chi and Tao meditation session at 11 a.m., she will also be available to explore the exercises she provides at her ChunHwa training centre.

From 12:10-1:30 p.m., Yaya Maria del Carmen will conduct the ceremony of the Archangels of the Solar Wheel, a non-denominational practice which has roots in the ancient mystic and magic Mediterranean culture.

Live music will be featured throughout the afternoon. TribuMusic, with sounds from the Andes, performs at 5 p.m.

The Sun Healing Fair, featuring Reiki, Massage Therapy and other natural healing methods, will run Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m.-4 p.m. and will be available by donation.

Lannigan hopes people will come with the intent of learning in a relaxed atmosphere.

“People will get so much knowledge, and they ‘ll have fun,” she noted.

The Fix Our World All Ages Healing Fair takes place Sat., Sept. 5 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 6 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Fernbrook Resort, 57 12th Concession East. Admission is free.
