Intentionfest: Free Festival Inspiring Wellness and Peace

IntentionFest, a free, one-day festival designed to help people create powerful intentions for peace and personal and communal well-being, will take place from noon to 5 p.m., September 25, 2022, at Saugatucket Veterans’ Memorial Park, in Wakefield, Rhode Island. The event will feature peacemakers and healing artists sharing their wisdom and craft with all ages.

IntentionFest will open with a mindful peace walk ceremony at noon. Attendees will then spend the afternoon with various practitioners offering ongoing sessions in massage, reiki, reflexology, coherent field technology and more intended to provide relaxation, relief, peace and healing. Exhibitor booths can be located by one of these nine categories: compassion and nonviolence; energy work, sound and light; life journey coaching and intuitive readings; nature and the environment; nutrition and relationship with food and water; physical body work; plants, oils and honey; therapies for youngsters; and wellness centers and collaboratives.

Throughout the day, individuals and families will find inspiration and guidance to heal and be at peace in life. “Peacemaking is not merely abstaining from violence; it’s an active process and way of life that can change how you live in the world,” organizers explain.

Music performed by local community artists playing ukulele, dulcimer, guitar, percussion and vocals will set a peaceful, healing vibe. Other offerings will include healthy food for purchase, the Intention Peace booth, where people can set intentions for peace and wellness, and a meditation tent, where in 20 minutes, visitors can reset and recharge with a guided meditation or mindful breathing exercise. Children’s activities will include peace rock painting, peace flag making, storytelling and sing-alongs about peace, the environment and joy. 

Whether suffering from illness or just curious about the many ways we can heal ourselves, IntentionFest will open new possibilities and connect people to those that can help them on their journey to peace and wellness.
