Against a background of continual tones emanating from the chant-a-thon, the sixteenth annual Starlight Wellbeing Expo was another successful festival held in the Byron shire over the Easter break.

The chant was a first for the festival: a ‘no experience required’ opportunity to sing until your heart was content.

Chanting wasn’t the only ‘-a-thon’, with a free healathon event held by local therapists.

Other activities included crystal singing bowl music, and workshops on the joy of ‘truly living to your highest potential’ and the power of play.

With a huge range of stalls, visitors had the opportunity to be ‘read’, massaged, healed, hit with healing lights and even have their aura lights photographed.

The Wild Fox organic wine stall also proved to be popular.
