Holistic Festivals presents their fall festival being held October 20 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Cen-terPlace at Mirabeau Point Park in Spokane Valley. Admission is $6, and includes over 50 booths, free lectures, and a special hour-long presentation on the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull.

Co-sponsors of the bi-yearly Holistic Festivals, Sybil Vaughn and Cindy Gardner, had a vision in 2003 to offer education and presentations on alternative healing modalities to the public. “Our orig-inal goal was to offer an educational and fun day to the public at a reasonable cost that allowed peo-ple to talk directly with local alternative healing professionals in our area to learn more about vari-ous modalities and natural products,” says Vaughn. “Our festivals have chiropractors, acupunctur-ists, readers, healers, hypnotherapists, massage therapists and energy workers as well as new alter-native technologies and health scans, EMF devices, essential oils, herbs, weight loss, detox, aura pictures, books, art, jewelry, crystals, gifts and more.”

In addition, Vaughn and Gardner are excited to announce a presentation by Bill Homann, the guardian of the Mitchell-Hedges Skull, which was made from a single piece of quartz crystal and weighs 11 pounds, 7 ounces. “For over 80 years, the Mitchell-Hedges Crystal Skull has been re-garded as an archeological treasure, a technological marvel and sacred artifact. It is proclaimed to be one of the 13 Crystal Skulls in the Mayan Skull prophesies,” says Gardner. “In a special one-hour lecture being held at 12:30 p.m., Bill will talk about this ‘Skull of Love,’ share the story of the ad-venturer Mitchell-Hedges and take the audience on a guided meditation with the Skull.” In addition to the lecture, private sessions with the Crystal Skull will also be available at the festival.
