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.

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.
