The 2nd Annual Grand Monadnock Healing Arts Festival will take place on Saturday.

This event offers an opportunity to meet the growing group of professional complementary and alternative, therapeutic healing arts practitioners and artists in the region and beyond. Festivities will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 4 p.m. at the Peterborough Community Center, 25 Elm St.

The event is free and participants are encouraged to bring a donation for the Peterborough Food Pantry.

A wide variety of services, including healing arts and foods, intuitive readings, workshops, presentations, original hand-crafted artwork and entertainment, will be provided. Practitioners will be on hand to answer questions, and demonstrate therapies and healing arts. Over 30 exhibitors and vendors are offering a multitude of books, crystals, gemstones, fashions, jewelry and more.

Vendors include Kelli Pixa, henna body artist; Kyle Russell, crystal expert and teacher; Susi Marrotte, Soul Aura intuitive artist/reader; Attar Herbs & Spices offers an herbal workshop for children; and Harold Danser of Danser Art, creator and teacher of dichoric glass jewelry.

Our speakers schedule includes eight keynote speakers covering current interest topics on energy medicine plus a cymatic demonstration, nutrition, breath work, angelology, power of meditation, spiritual healing, organic produce versus GMOs and transformation.

Cornucopia will be offering tours of the Peterborough Community Garden, while Brenna Manuel, an installation artist will be presenting a special photography slide show that will be ongoing all day and accompanied by harpist Beverly Boyer.

A raffle fundraiser is being held with the entire proceeds going to the Peterborough Food Pantry, which serves communities in the region. Dozens of winners will each win a raffle of a service or product from the participating exhibitors.

“We are pleased to bring this inspired group of complementary, holistic practitioners, counselors and artists who are motivated to combine their gifts and talents to bring this transforming event to the heart of New England,” said Arlene Smith, owner of Hancock Holistic Health Care and festival organizer. This festival is created to introduce and provide neighbors and friends with take-away knowledge and experience of the variety of safe, effective gentle and natural approaches to healing body, mind and spirit.
