Mind Body Spirit Wellbeing Festival

A little treat for myself

This year, I decided to find some time to visit the Mind Body Spirit Wellbeing Festival at Kensington Olympia, in London.

A big thanks to the Health Bloggers Community and the organisers for inviting me! It was definitely worthwhile.

It’s been a very busy 3 years for me, studying at the College of Naturopathic Medicine. And as much as I wanted to attend all the wonderful wellbeing festivals and events these past years, I simply couldn’t find any time to do it.

Every time there was an awesome festival or an event, it clashed with my lectures or exam studies.

A bit of a bummer.

However, this time I took an entire day off, convinced my fiance to go with me, and I could not have felt more excited leading up to the actual day.

And guess what folks, I wasn’t at all disappointed!

The Mind Body Spirit Festival rocked.

The Wim Hof Method

I was especially excited about attending the Unleash Your Inner Power workshop with Tim Van Der Vliet. A Hay House author who was trained personally by Wim Hof aka The Iceman. Whose unprecedented and revolutionary techniques for mastering the mind-body connection are being studied by scientific institutions around the world.

I loved how Tim shared the knowledge and techniques—in a very simple and approachable way—which have allowed Wim Hof to master his body and thus break over 20 world records.

He guided us through each step of the famous Wim Hof breathing method. I could instantly feel the difference in my body and mind; I felt so relaxed and at peace. It really motivated me to practise this method on a regular basis.

You can learn more about the breathing method in this video clip from Tim.

Some of the benefits of the Wim Hof Method are:

  • Instant increase of energy
  • Improved focus
  • Lowered stress levels
  • Overhauling of the immune system
  • Influence of the hormonal system

This can be applied to us to revolutionise our wellbeing and our experience of life, our mind and body.

It is truly fascinating.

You can join Tim’s full training on the 23rd or 24th June 2018 in Brighton at Southend on Sea. I bet it will be a life-changing experience.

Barefoot Shoes

I was also looking forward to visiting the Vivobarefoot stall, as I recently listened to Dr Rangan Chatterjee’s podcast, where he talked to Galahad Clark, the co-founder of Vivobarefoot, about the importance of Barefoot Shoes. It was super interesting to hear about all the benefits we can get by allowing our feet to move naturally.

PandoraStar 

I also stumbled across a mysterious, yet intriguing, machine called PandoraStar, which is a unique light entrainment technology. 

“PandoraStar stimulates various brain regions by focusing rays of light on the retinas. Through closed eyelids, users experience a visible frequency entrainment of complex kaleidoscopic patterns of colours. This provides an immersive environment for deep level brainwave entrainment.”

So by using flickering light, PandoraStar gently guides the brain into altered and expanded states, which are beneficial for experiencing the Pandora Spa’s wide range of holistic therapies.

This is a futuristic “Mind Spa” dedicated to the exploration of consciousness and human potential.

I have to say: I’m pretty curious. So I will definitely revisit this in the future.

So many cool experiences

I spent several hours with my fiance at the festival, absolutely amazed by the variety of different holistic therapies, workshops, yoga stuff, talks, exhibitors etc

I went for a talk called Heal Your Money Story by Lidija Rosati, which I really enjoyed.

And I was impressed by the powerful mantra humming at the Mantra Lounge with Vaishnavi Brassey.

I left the festival feeling peaceful, enlightened and inspired. There was just so much to see.

Look at all the lovely stuff I got in my goodiebag. 

Thanks guys!

I am already planning to attend the Mind Body Spirit Wellbeing Festival in Birmingham on the 5-7 November.

I can’t wait.

With love,
