As a genuinely full-day affair consisting of workshops, music and vendors, the Healing Arts Festival was put together by Alexandria Pettit, who recently moved to Athens with a vision of bringing together healers and artists. Pettit graduated high school and yoga school just as COVID hit, which left her feeling displaced, and she says, “With only being in this area for a short time, I have already found more open, aware and like-minded people than I’ve ever met, and [I] felt the call to bring these individuals together to create an experience Athens has never seen before.” There will be workshops on the topics of yoga, massage, astrology, manifesting success, plant identification, medicinal cooking and more. In between the workshops, attendees can participate in drum circles and shopping with vendors. The day will end with a burn and music to celebrate the personal and group work everyone has put into their day.
