North Devon Mind, Body and Soul Festival (22nd Apr - 23rd Apr)
North Devon’s Mind, Body & Soul Festival
EWE2 Arena at The BIG Sheep
Saturday 22nd & Sunday 23rd April 2017
North Devon’s second Mind, Body & Soul Festival will take place at The BIG Sheep family attraction in Bideford on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd April. With all the pressures of modern life it’s so easy to feel stressed…. but what exactly is stress? Stress is a modern, widely used buzzword that’s used to describe the pressure of modern day, leaving people unable to cope. This new festival will be like no other and promises to leave visitors feeling relaxed, pampered and give them all the tools they will need to lead happier and more fulfilled lives
We may live in a world that has more appliances and technology to make for a more comfortable life than previous generations – but does that mean we have better and more fulfilling lifestyles? In today’s busy world where more of us have to work in demanding jobs as well as raising a family we have very little time left over for ourselves and when we do find time, we feel guilty about enjoying some ‘me’ time and this undoubtedly plays havoc with our well-being. The Mind, Body & Soul Festival which is sponsored by ‘My Town: Bideford’ will give visitors an opportunity to come along to find out ways in which to nourish their mind, body and soul.
There is already a wealth of exhibitors and activities planned for the event including yoga, tai chi, allergy testing, beauty treatments, relationship and personal life coaching, healing, pilates, holistic therapies, massage, physics, prayer and much more.

In 1866, after many years of study, an American woman, Mary Baker Eddy discovered what she considered to be the Science of the Christianity which Jesus taught and lived. By 1879, she founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, 'to commemorate the word and the works of our Master, which should reinstate primitive Christianity and its lost element of healing' (church manual p.17) The best way to understand Christian Science is to delve into the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy's book Science and Health. Anyone can find God to be 'a very present help in trouble' (ps. 46.1)

There is a prevalent misunderstanding in the world about where problems come from and how to solve them.Pretty much all of us are fooled by this misunderstanding at least some of the time. Having it pointed out to you and then insightfully seeing the truth of it for yourself - changes how you view and deal with every problem you encounter after that point.
Be prepared to be introduced to a completely new view of the world, and yet one that somehow feels very familiar as if you have been looking at it your whole life but never really ‘seen’ it! Your newfound understanding will have you viewing your world in HD!
