Bangalow blackspot puts school children at risk

Will action ever be taken to protect school kids getting on and off the bus on Lismore Road, Bangalow as trucks fly by at 80km/h?

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.
