If you have been searching for an action-packed event that will broaden your understanding of the world around you and invite you to consider a breathtaking array of new perspectives, look no further than the Open Minds Conference taking place in Co. Waterford this spring. This three-day conference will play host to speakers such as DJ and music researcher Mark Devlin, health and fitness advocate Damien Mooney, and yoga teacher Tracy Boland. The inspirational two-time cancer survivor Bernadette Bohan and the well-known musician, artist and researcher Max Igan will also be in attendance.
Aisling Fitzgibbon, one of the Open Minds speakers, will be discussing the evolution of activism, and how people can effectively deal with pressing social, environmental or political issues while maintaining their own wellbeing. She brings a wealth of campaigning experience to the event, having spent many years raising awareness of the fluoridation of the Irish water system in her role as the Girl Against Fluoride. She is also the director of the Energy is Your Currency Community and the weekly Aisling’s Holistic Health Show. “The purpose of the Open Minds Conference is to bring conscious awareness to different topics that affect everyone, and then connect like-minded people,” she explains. “Once people start learning about health and political issues that impact everyone, they can start to feel quite isolated and negative. The idea behind the event is to highlight those issues, and then present positive solutions as to what we can do.”
Other topics that will be covered during the conference include natural health and wellbeing, nutrition, shamanic drumming, and lively discussions on a range of political and social issues. A full list of speakers can be found here. The video below – featuring the conference’s Executive Producer Trevor Eivers – will give you an idea of exactly what you can expect.
Trevor sums up the event by saying, “be prepared for a life changing experience, and to feel an amazing energy and vibration – the ripples of which will spread far and wide.” Aisling echoes this, adding that the fundamental idea behind the Open Minds Conference is “not to feel hopelessness or despair, but to actually realise just how powerful we are.”
The Open Minds Conference will be taking place on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of March 2018 in Dooley’s Hotel, Co. Waterford.
