2014 Healing area

Seemingly the biggest healing area yet at Peace in the Park, 2014 brought together a powerful team of skilled health, healing and creative practitioners!

You had the option to treat yourself to the skills of some of Sheffield’s excellent therapists. Choose from, amongst others, deep tissue massage, Chinese medical experts, head massage, energy healing, ethical health teas and products, and even crystal and birthing advice. While people looked around, the big yellow Shaman-bulance, made its festival debut. Nice to see so many people check out the workshop schedule.

We were really happy to house skilled leaders bringing workshops including Qigong, poetry, self-massage and energy massage, and the wonderful laughter yoga! We also had so many yoga teachers coming that we had to open up a new structure to house the many different classes available. Therapists and workshop leaders gathered in a new area this year, a little further up the hill than previously, and sitting at the heart of the healing area was the creater hedron, a loving powerful sculpture.

There was a real buzz about this year’s Peace in the Park, and all of us at the healing area.
