The Health and Healing Show at Clay Cross Social Center on November 6, 2021 features Reiki and Reflexology, Tarot Readings and Mediumship and runs from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
This year’s event is the 21st fair and proceeds from admission will go to Clay Cross Hospital. Since its launch, the fair has raised funds for Ashgate Hospice, British Heart Foundation, Headway North Derbyshire, Derbyshire Carers, Sheffield Children’s Hospital and Macmillian.
Originally created by Reiki master Christine Coffey, who directs Colors For The Soul, and Janet Roome (Peak School of Reiki), the Clay Cross Health & Healing Festival was launched at a time when life was difficult in the city. . The closure of Biwaters had affected many families and morale was at an all-time low.
Giving something back to the community was very important and all proceeds from the event went to Friends of Clay Cross Hospital.
In 2007, Tracy Pittuck and Jane Birkin took over the management of the event to keep it going with Christine, a Reiki master for over 22 years, who has remained a large part of it.
Tracy said, âMy first Reiki healing experience was at this event in 2004. Christine asked me if I had tried Reiki and when I said no she suggested a tasting session. . I lay down on the sofa, my eyes closed to help focus on the treatment in a crowded room. I was absolutely stunned to feel something moving in my stomach, so I had to take a quick glance, to see the healer’s hands hovering above me working in my aura … I closed eyes then I started to visualize the color red in my third eye … It was definitely an experience, the first in a long series. I was so excited to attend the workshop the following January.
“I am very passionate about this incredible healing energy, which is why I love to present it to others.”
Tracy, who has run the fair with her partner, Shane, for the past few years. said: “Each year the fair raises between Â£ 200 and Â£ 500.”
Entrance to the fair is Â£ 1 at the door and free for under 16s.
