The Theosophical Society will host TheosoFest, an annual mind-bodyspirit festival, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., September 8, in Wheaton. This free, familyfriendly event celebrates the wisdom of the ages, the unity of all life and spiritual selftransformation.

Visitors can join thousands of likeminded people and learn about meditative practices from many traditions, enjoy tasty vegetarian fare, peruse more than 200 holistic vendors in the outdoor marketplace and take part in soul-enriching spiritual talks on a wide range of topics and traditions.

Activities include hands-on demonstrations, the Labyrinth Walk, qigong, tai chi, the Kid’s Korner and a drumming circle. Attendees can visit the Quest Book Shop, explore the Olcott Library or stroll around the grounds. The first visitors will receive a free gift while supplies last.

Cost: $5 parking. Location: 1926 N. Main St. For more information, call 630-668- 1571, email Info@Theosophical.org or visit Theosophical.org/theosofest.
