 East Meets Westerly
East Meets Westerly: Downtown Health & Wellness Exhibition returns to Westerly's own beautiful Victorian strolling arboretum known as Wilcox Park. With free wellness services offered all day, the event's mission is to educate the public about the multitude of healing modalities thriving within it's town's borders. "The idea is to promote Healing Local", states Keith Cowley, the event's founder and instructor of Personal Circle & Embodiment Clinic in downtown. "The only way I could think of to show the town how many we are was to band together into an outdoor exhibition. Teaming up with the existing Garden Market Fair in the park seemed like a natural fit. With nothing for sale and no competition, local practitioners of healing modalities, from Tai Chi/Qigong to Massage Therapy, have joined the cause to educate and provide free consultations, demonstrations and classes. Martial disciplines like Iaijutsu/Kenjutsu Japanese Sword, Karate and Judo, and healing modalities Acupuncture, Reflexology and Reiki, practitioners exhibit their experiences and abilities to the public all day long. "I was elated when five different schools and styles of yoga volunteered their teachings to the public during our first year," Cowley recalls. "How humbling it is to know that we aren't alone on the path to self-discovery and better health." This path, as Cowley refers, has finally become a local one for many (whom only 10 years ago had to travel great distances for the modalities they sought), now downtown Westerly is rooted with the dedication and training of indispensable area healers and guides. Opening ceremonies begin at 10am. Stay all day, or just drop in. Bring your yoga mat!
