“The Sun Valley Wellness Festival” is celebrating its 18th year this Memorial Day weekend May 22-26 2015.

The Festival was launched Memorial Day weekend by The Ketchum Chamber of Commerce, Elkhorn Resort and  Chapter one Bookstore.

The chamber sent out to the community a questionnaire asking what people most wanted to see in the Spring Slack season. We were given 10 options and the idea of a Wellness Festival was unanimously chosen.

The Festival brings “light“ to the bleak time of year between the ski season and summer season. It is the time when many local residents used to go on vacation and tourists didn’t visit. Now our town is full of visitors from everywhere, including four return visitors from New Zealand. It has been

named one of the top Wellness Festivals in the country.

Over the years the Festival has drawn many visionary speakers such as Deepak Chopra, Byron Katie, Robert Kennedy Jr., Eban Alexander, Ram Dass, and many, many more. The festival has many informative, inspiring
workshops all day long on Friday before the festival and Monday after the festival.

“Hands on Hall” is where one can find a peaceful array of choices of healing. Thai massage, foot reflexology, psychic readings, energy sessions, tarot card readings, astrology readings, reiki treatments, healing massage. Many of the
practitioners in this room are “local friends”. It is room that once you enter, it is hard to leave.

“Exhibit Hall:” this room is full of a variety of Holistic products and information booths.

Health, crystals, jewelry, Organic products, environmental information and so much more.

Movement Studio: yoga classes taught by the most well trained yogis. Tommy Rosen, Richard Odam, Cathie Caccia, Saul David Ray.

Musical Presentations: past musical events, Shanti Shanti, Deva Premal,Wah, and Begi and Heather. Chapter one is the place to find information about the event, the speakers, and the workshops. We have brochures , programs
