Embrace Life

Promoting inner and outer health and wellbeing is the aim of Embrace Life. The message is spread through festivals held across the state with an event to be held in Dee Why in November.

The organisers say the festivals are a natural extension to their online community, who continue to build an awareness of the benefits of adopting a healthy and balanced lifestyle incorporating all areas of mind, body and soul.

“We aim to showcase sustainable and ethical lifestyles, wellness, music, art and celebrate local, conscious businesses. 

“By providing a platform that allows for all levels of creative expression, connections are created, information is shared and we all become engaged in co-creating the life we live.

“It’s all about the experiences. From the time you walk into the festival, you will instantly feel it; flowing into the interactive workshops, food demonstrations, sound healings and meditations, to participating in a yoga class,” explains festival organiser Deborah Shepherd. 

“Even our treatments are positioned out of the ‘hustle and bustle’ of a trade area, and instead you are immersed in a spa-like environment with beautiful music, aromatherapy candles and a cup of herbal tea,” she adds.

She is excited about bringing the festival to the Dee Why RSL, as their event centre area will allow for multiple places for people to browse, allowing time to connect and fully embrace life on the Northern Beaches. This is the fourth festival to be held in this area.

The stage program on the day will be showcasing local musicians and performers, and Deborah says people often stay for hours, as the energy of the day encourages this.

“In promoting our destinations, we always extend beyond the festival showcasing what else is on offer in the local area. With the natural beauty of the beaches, yummy cafés and restaurants and a general zest for life, what better place to complete our yearly Embrace Life festival program then on the Northern Beaches,” explains Deborah.
