Metaphysical fair introduces energetic, spiritual practices


Explore the soul, discover yourself.”

This is the goal of the Mind over Matter Metaphysical Fair, coming to Gresham 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, at 33 S.E. 223rd Ave., Suite 200.

“We want people to come in and learn what spiritual, energetic practices are all about,” said Tina Foby, an event organizer, medium, channel, reiki practitioner, angel reader/healer and hypnotherapist at Mind Over Matter Hypnotherapy.

“People can answer questions and get healing or readings done in a more relaxed environment. We hope this broadens everyone’s horizons.”

The public is invited to visit with healers and readers and attend classes throughout the day related to the practices of psychics, mediums, reiki practitioners, angel readers and healers, channelers, reflexologists, transchannels and energy manipulators.

A practitioner in Gresham for 4 years, Foby will offer readings and healings at the fair, along with selling smudge boxes and energetically charged pendulums.

Foby said between 15-20 practitioners will present at the fair, some in pairs.

A psychic/medium with 21 years of practice, Seth Michael of Camas, Wash., is co-founder of a paranormal team, White Light Paranormal Insight, and the host of a radio show, Into the Light with Seth Michael.

Michael will offer two classes, “You are Psychic” and “Embracing the Empath Within.”

“(The fair) offers people the opportunity to develop an acute sense of self-awareness and networking with like-minded people interested in these practices who understand where they’re coming from,” he said.

Another practitioner is Soodabeh Mokry, a registered nurse, and wellness and holistic health consultant. She will teach a class on boosting your immune system.

“There is so much negativity out there,” Mokry said. “This is focused on the positive and light.”

Throughout the day, classes will center on metaphysical aspects, including grounding, increasing your psychic ability, living as an empath and more.

“Some skepticism is OK,” Michael said. “It’s actually healthy. Have some openmindedness with it. It’s another layer of life that not everybody has explored.”

The event will feature healthy refreshments and items for sale, including energized crystals, sculptures, essential oils and smudging boxes .
