Staff, friends and family of The Oracle at Sechelt is hosting its inaugural free Faerie Festival this Saturday, May 4 from noon to 7 p.m.
The Oracle invites all ages for a magical afternoon of creative crafting and experiential workshops. The festival is a celebration of Beltane an ancient Gaelic festival celebrated in Ireland, Scotland and the Isle of Man that marked the beginning of summer.
Four adult workshops are offered including crystals and chakras, learn to use Oracle cards, exploring faerie realms, and angel numbers 101. In addition to the workshops, mini-readings and intuitive massage sessions are also available for a nominal fee of $10.
Children are invited to participate from 1 to 4 p.m. with the highlight being a ‘Wee Folk Parade’ at 2. In preparation for the parade, Oracle leaders will provide face painting and help create a magical scene with the little faerie and gnomes. A wand-making workshop and fishing for fortunes are also events kids may chose to participate in. After the parade, a storytelling session is scheduled before programming reverts back to focus on the grown-ups at the festival.
Workshop leaders, reader and contributors to the festival include Ariane Dicaire, Sandra Wagman, Caren Cameron, Kim Lyon, Raven Light, Anita Gertz and Vicki Starfire.
The Oracle is located at 1-5549 Wharf Avenue in Sechelt. See more details at www.theoracle.ca.
