MD of the Mind Body Spirit Festival
High Wycombe, Bucks
Mel Carlile has transformed and evolved the Mind Body Spirit Festival to appeal to a whole new generation of spiritual seekers. The Festival, founded in 1977, was the first exhibition in the world entirely devoted to the pursuit of healthier, more creative and fulfilling lifestyles. It offered a home for spiritual seekers and pilgrims from across the globe, offering them a safe place to commune, share ideas, beliefs and philosophies. For the first time ever, the Festival brought together foremost authorities, best-selling authors, pioneers and leading organisations in the seemingly diverse areas of eco-living, natural health, complementary medicine, alternative technology, spirituality and personal growth. This unique, ground-breaking formula created a blueprint for all future shows of this kind. Today, it remains the largest and longest running event of its kind in the world.
