Mark Watson, Billinudgel

I have been surprised not many people know about the Fields of Healing Festival at North Byron Parklands running 23 and 24 November. It’s a convergence of peoples of all types to get the healing of our Earth moving along. Google it, get along – the more healing energy the better – if you cannot get there set aside a few minutes on these dates to support peace and help heal our tired mother.

Note I have nothing to do with the organisation of this festival. I just care about my four children and all the children of the world, so they can enjoy the wonders of Mother Nature. OM Shanti
