Mind/Body/Spirit Health Fair offers myriad choices

The Mind/Body/Spirit Health Fair is the place to learn about -and even try out – modalities such as Ayurveda, an ancient health system from India; a reading with an intuitive; or even something as mainstream nowadays as a chiropractic adjustment.

Formerly known as the Psychic Fair, it was renamed a few years ago to better reflect the variety of participating vendors. This year, organizers have had to turn away vendors when they reached their maximum of 50.

This fair “will be packed to the gills with intuitives, tarot readers, artists, crystal and jewelry, bodyworkers, movement specialists, chiropractors, naturopaths, spiritual counselors, Ayurvedic practitioners, herbs and more,” says the intuitive Suzie Daggett, who is expecting more than 700 visitors from as far away as Chico and Reno.

Sometimes a modest fee is involved, as when you get your aura photographed, but often getting onto a table or settling into a chair to have a brief consult can be free. There is plenty of product to buy, including Rebecca’s mighty muffins.

Coming with an open attitude can help a lot, says Daggett. “You may find just the right person or treatment that will send those lovely and true chills up your spine, which is your inner self saying ‘try this, it will help.'”

Such a “chills up the spine” happened in the case of a particular Tarot reading conducted by Bennett Dear of Starr Phoenix Institute, who says, “Two female friends wanted to sit in on each other’s readings. The cards for friend ‘A’ showed a jet-setting life of fancy homes, designer vacations, and many romantic affairs. The cards for friend ‘B’ showed the typical suburban housewife with kids, station wagon, white picket fence, and dog. Each was tired of her life and wanted the other’s. But the cards didn’t show it happening.

“Somewhat dissatisfied, they left, then returned late in the day asking for another reading (more or less as a second opinion). I shuffled the cards and an amazing thing happened: the readings were virtually identical … The Tarot always knows the truth.”
