The seas were raging and the winds were blowing this weekend,but inside The Mind Body Spirit Festival at The Brighton Centre I felt like I was in a cocoon of love and inspiration.
On entering the main exhibitor market place I was handed my goody bag – a fab treat indeed – Any goody bag with a book about love is a sure way to put a smile on my face. I am looking forward to reading “What Is Love” The Spiritual Purpose of Relationships by Frank Vilaasa, so thank you Frank and Thank You MBS.
I tend to always do a bit of a lap when I arrive at large scale events, so I can find my bearings and get a good idea of what’s what. I had limited time at the show unlike when Sophie and I visited the London event so I wanted to make sure I was being organised and making the most of all that was on offer.
I decided to head to the free stage and compose myself a little after my blustery arrival. One of the first things to really capture my attention in this area was the exquisite work of Mark Goulding – what an incredible talent. I actually felt quite hypnotised as I was drawn into the work of his fabulous Mandalas. I then had the honour of speaking with this fantastic and beautiful man who quite literally had me spellbound with his words. We spoke about the impending solar eclipse that was to take place in the next hour and how he was super excited to be there at the show and around all the love of family and community on such an auspicious day. After reciting his poem to me, The Fleeting Moment, he highly recommended I take a few moments to connect with that energy of this Solar Eclipse. Not words I was likely to ignore, given what I had just experienced.
Feeling a bit peckish (to be honest I really did not even need to feel hungry) I made my way to the InSpiral food counter. Never a disappointment, there was an array of healthy raw bites to get those taste buds going. I opted for an Avocado boat followed by a scrummy pot of raw vanilla berry tart. Delicious. I really do hope that one fine day Brighton will have it’s own InSpiral too, best get manifesting!
The MBS team really do a fantastic job and I truly hope the show will return to The Brighton Centre again. There was so much to see and do. With the Love Dome, Mantra Tent and meditation Pop Up Temple people were blissing out at every opportunity.
I witnessed Tim Wheater’s divine vibrations and sublime sounds in the free stage and thoroughly enjoyed chanting with him throughout the eclipse phase – Big smiles all round.
Connecting with new like minded, heart centred individuals is a blessing in my job and this occasion was no exception as there was an abundance of you lovely lot everywhere.
I discovered my colour personality with the The Colour Ministry – that will be Red for me then – passionate, enthusiastic and susceptible to energy highs and lows. Alison is the pioneer for The Colour Ministry and has over 18 years experience in working with colour, a fascinating tool for healing I believe. The Colour Ministry have lots to offer so I really can only recommend a visit to their web site to learn more and receive your free e-book “Exploring Colour”.
I also had the pleasure of bumping into friends I had not seen for a long time and that, added to the the whole experience of the show, made the whole day quite magical.
Due to family commitments I was unable to stay as long as I would have liked and am disappointed to have missed some of the fine speakers that were there. I heard much praise for Charley Morley and his talk on lucid dreaming. I can only say that next year I will be sure to attend the full weekend to immerse myself fully in it all.
Thank You MBS, you have delivered a holistic event with something for every one of us.
