As well as drumming workshops, Reiki, aura imaging and shamanism will be explored.

Reiki is a Japanese form of spiritual healing, which uses "universal energy" to mend and empower people.

Aura imaging, is a form of photography, used to record and display the electromagnetic energy that comes off a person's body.

Shamanism is a religious practice, where the workshop leader will attempt to connect with a spirit world through altered states of consciousness, such as trance.

Healing the soul

Alongside specialist workshops will be a main exhibition, guest talks are also organised.

Previously, these holistic minded events took place at the Guttman Centre at Stoke Mandeville Stadium.

Exhibitors specialise in holistic and alternative therapies, provide one to one readings and offer self-help advice.

Retailers sell crystals, spiritual goods, jewellery, salt lamps, crystals, arts and crafts.

A host of speakers will be at the event

At September's event the workshops will focus on fear, crystals and healing, numerology, changing your life and further ideas based around self-help.

There’ll be a gong bath, another workshop which uses the healing vibrations of sound to soothe paritcipants.

Ottaway, has run a drumming workshop at previous events, he's also set up ‘Buckets for Bongos’, an ongoing mental health support project.

The event shaman, John Odinsson based in Gloucester, will centre his talk around the power of animals.

Steve Williams and Chris Frith will use aura imaging to analyse people's individual auras. The pair use equipment based on Kirlian photography, invented by Semyon Kirlian in the 1950s.

“We want to give local people a chance to speak with and listen to spiritual, holistic and wellbeing experts,” says Reiki teacher and Deer Spirit event organiser, Julie Fenn. “Come along if you need some guidance, advice or just a bit of understanding, support or a kind word. Or if you just want to meet like-minded people and enjoy the positive energy.”
