It’s one thing to attend a conference where the theme is holistic living, but when you add the luxurious setting of the Queen Mary ocean liner, the atmosphere is bound to be more exotic. Although no longer a seagoing vessel, this venerable (and some say, haunted) ship is sure to be uniquely equipped to give all those aboard a more than memorable experience. Just being on such a famous ship, offering views that will be breath-taking, will charge up the event for anyone participating. The event begins on Friday, September 13 (for those not nervous regarding that date) through Sunday, September 15, 2013, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., in Long Beach, California.
The primary aim of this conference will be more than a thrilling setting, however. There will be practitioners of such modalities as Ayurvedic medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, yoga, energy healing among others. Demonstrators and purveyors of a multitude of natural lifestyles and products will also be available. There will be displays of raw foods, healthy nutrition, and lectures you may attend on any of these topics. Workshops will also be given on many subjects. Panels and forums with experts in various holistic fields will run throughout the weekend.
This is going to be like a combination health fair and holiday for attendees. You won’t have the worries of the ship’s infrastructure failing, as in so many cruises these days. Instead you can browse the displays, shop for natural products, and even relax as you listen to experts in one or more healing methods discuss their practices. On top of it all, the cost for this “trip” is relatively low: advance tickets are $15.00 per day or $25.00 for all three days.
If you dare, try the “bonus” tacked onto this weekend: a tour of the haunted Queen Mary on Friday evening. For advance tickets for this special event, at $39.00, check out the website http://www.purplev.com/mediakit/?KVmhTuaL and scroll down for the opportunity. Otherwise, at the door tickets are $75.00. No guarantee of seeing any actual ghost or having any paranormal experience. Still, with it being Friday the 13th you never know what might happen, especially on the sea!
