Shanghai to hold healing arts festival on Sunday
The 9th Shanghai Healing Arts Festival will open on October 15 with bilingual events and workshops teaching participants to relieve and heal themselves.
The festival, organized by Suzhou-based Octave institute, will present all-day non-stop healing events around the theme of "Healing oneself, your loved ones, and the Earth".
According to Octave, healing is not out of reach, but is hidden in every moment of people's lives, such as the practices of thinking and acting.
Everyone can experience their own self-healing and understand the true meaning of the art of healing, the institute believes.
The workshops will have different themes and participants can start their healing life through workshops on themes including diet, breathing, sleep, and exercise.
There will also be healing art activities such as tea tasting, singing bowl therapy, dancing, meditation, and art therapy.
Some of the teachers are foreign healing experts and the workshops will be bilingual.
