Kootenay Spirit Festival returns for second year

You’re invited to the second annual Kootenay Spirit Festival in Nelson, Sept. 18 to 20.

You’re invited to the second annual Kootenay Spirit Festival in Nelson. This weekend of yoga, meditation, music and dance will take place Sept. 18 to 20.

Aspiring to ignite and unite community within this region and beyond, this spiritually charged festival has it all. Whether rising early to meditate or dancing late to the beat of world music (or both) participants will be inspired by top local and visiting teachers, speakers and musical acts.

Events are hosted in many eclectic studios, venues and parks, where you are encouraged to walk and cycle between events. Nelson provides an ideal location to celebrate mindful-living, love of nature and engaged community.

What to expect with your weekend pass purchase: “The workshops are diverse and explore many different spiritual traditions,” says coordinator Trisha Wilson. “Some are suitable for beginners while others may appeal to more advanced practitioners. Some are physically active while others are contemplative and meditative. Body, mind, spirit. Promoting balance in our personal lives, loving kindness for others, respect for nature, collective peace.”

There will be an expanded Spirit Market at Lakeside Park with local vendors. As part of the festival’s mission of accessibility within the community, there will once again be a free concert, acro yoga, hoops and new this year, a kids zone.

The focus this year includes youth (teens and young adults). There will be programming by and for youth. Get your tickets early and take advantage of early bird pricing. They’re available until Aug. 1. To purchase, go online at kootenayspiritfestival.ca.
