On The Path To Healing
Education is the key to healing – that’s the message from the organisers of the Heal Yourself Expo, which will take place this month.

Event organiser Wayne Pina-Roozemond said the idea for the festival started more than 10 years ago.

“Friends of mine went to a larger festival, based around mind and spirit, and they came away disheartened because it was all about sales,” he said.

“So we decided to go for a different model – we wanted to assist home-based businesses, the smaller business run by passionate people looking to connect.

“For patrons, it’s all about education. We want people to take charge of their healing. So many people are happy to hand over their healing to their doctor, or their naturopath and say, ‘you fix this’.

“They don’t want to take responsibility for their actions or take control. And taking control of that journey is what we really push at the Expo. And here, you will find people to help you.”

Initially scheduled for July, the expo had been postponed due to COVID-19.

“We’ve spoken with the Department of Health numerous times and we have a COVID-safe plan,” Wayne said.

“So things will look a bit different this year – fewer stall holders as we need to space people out; of course we have hand sanitiser and masks there for people who wish to wear masks.

“I think this is just something we have to get used to, it’s the new reality.

“And this year in particular, local business really needs a leg up and these businesses here at the expo are local, they’re run by local people and we’re all about the local community.”

Stall holders include natural therapists, psychics, tarot readers, healers and essential oil providers. Workshops will cover everything from connecting to spirit with local clairvoyants, to “awakening your sexual being”.

“Truly something for everyone,” Wayne said.
