Mind Body and Soul Festival

3rd and 4th October 2020

North Devon’s fourth Mind Body and Soul Festival will take place at The BIG Sheep on Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th October (rescheduled from 18th and 19th April due to Coronavirus).  With all the pressures of modern life it’s so easy to feel stressed…. but what exactly is stress? Stress is a modern, widely used buzzword that’s used to describe the pressure of modern day, leaving people unable to cope.  This festival is like no other and promises to leave visitors feeling relaxed, pampered and give them all the tools they will need to lead happier and more fulfilled lives.

We may live in a world that has more appliances and technology to make for a more comfortable life than previous generations – but does that mean we have better and more fulfilling lifestyles?  In today’s busy world where more of us have to work in demanding jobs as well as raising a family we have very little time left over for ourselves and when we do find time, we feel guilty about enjoying some ‘me’ time and this undoubtedly plays havoc with our well-being. The Mind, Body & Soul Festival will give visitors an opportunity to come along to find out ways in which to nourish their mind, body and soul.

Well behaved dogs are welcome to the festival only. They are unable to enter the BIG Sheep attraction.
