Something To Believe In

Religious differences have fueled endless wars, mass inquisitions, and plenty of political turmoil. But forget about all that.

Pagans, Christians, Hindus, and Buddhists are putting their differences aside for this weekend's Spirit Fest at the Holiday Inn Express in Germantown on Saturday and Sunday. The fair will feature lectures by folks of varying faiths as well as intuitive readings, channeling sessions, and plenty of vendors peddling jewelry, crystal skulls, and other New Age wares.

"The more we know about each other, the more we realize how similar we all are," says festival organizer Mary Ellen Smith.

Representing Buddhism is Candia Ludy of the Pemo Karpo Tibetan Buddhist Meditation Center. She will offer a lecture on using meditation to open the heart. Local author, musician, and Hindu Keith Blanchard will talk on combining spiritual philosophy and music. Former Baptist minister Steve Lancaster will speak on the link between biblical prophecies and modern-day spiritual awakening.

Energy healer Edd Edwards will talk about how he uses energy to heal, a power he considers a gift from God. After the lecture, Edwards will demonstrate sending energy into the bodies of volunteers.

Also, Ms. Margo, a Chippewa Native American, will perform intuitive animal-bone readings, and she'll be selling dreamcatchers and other goods. Plenty more intuitive readers also will be on hand connecting folks with angels, the dead, or their futures.

Spirit Fest, Holiday Inn Express (2748 Wolf Trail Cove), Saturday, August 21st, 11 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday, August 22nd, noon-5 p.m. $5 each day
