A Kildare town man who began studying the art of well being after noticing an imbalance in how people view themselves, was selected to take part in the Mind, Body, Spirit and Well being Festival at Dublin’s RDS last weekend.
David Doran, from Inchaquire, Cookstown practises the relatively new therapy called Accunect, as he believes it helps inner healing.
“I began studying Accunect because I saw an imbalance with people in how they see themselves,” he said.
“Accunect accesses the whole of our consciousness and allows the body to heal inner scars and fears.
“It activates the body’s ability to heal at all levels, working on the basis that the mind, body and spirit are all connected.”
This year's festival offered a variety of disciplines including laughter yoga, soulful yoga, yin yoga and animal flow yoga.
Dubbed Ireland’s longest established wellbeing festival it celebrated 21 years this year with 75 talks from top Irish and international experts in the fields of positive psychology and self-help, plus exhibits by over 150 complementary and healing practitioners.
“The amazing spectrum of holistic and complementary practitioners at Mind Body Spirit makes for a truly stimulating, vibrant and potentially life-changing experience,” said festival organiser Louis O’Sullivan.
