Wellbeing expo goes off with a sparkle

The 17th annual Starlight Wellbeing Expo in Bangalow went off with a zing, sparkle and Om yesterday as hundreds converged on the A&I Hall in Station Street for a taste of light.

The event that started in Byron Bay, moved to Bangalow 13 years ago as the need for more space squeezed them out of town. Organiser Raym says that the A&I Hall has a lovely feel to it which adds to the ambience of the expo.

As well as a large contingent of natural therapies, sound healing, psychics, kinesiology, iridology, numerology, astrology, essential oils, crystals and tarot, as well as jewellery and organic wines, this year’s special workshop presenters include Steven Strong who is a researcher, author and former high school teacher with a background in archaeology. He will be talking about concrete evidence that prior to any known human occupation of Australia we were visited by Ancient Egyptians.

Jost Sauer is a motivational health speaker, ex-drug smuggler, deserter and gun runner who will be talking about the mystical chi cycle and the map to destiny.

Local Chris James’ teaching offers a way for everyone to experience freedom and deep inner connection to their own voice through the power of sound.

Chicchan will be offering a Sacred Healing Ceremony.

New this expo is an interesting device on exhibit which is said to release DMT into the brain through light stimulation.

The Starlight Wellbeing Expo is on until Sunday from 9.30am until 5.30pm.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
