Living a Conscious Life

Conscious Life Holistic Wellness Festival returns to the Sunshine Coast! Georgia Beard meets the enlightened mind behind the expo and her lineup of life-changing seminars, workshops and experiences. 

According to Laura Di Mambro, living a conscious life means surfacing from the unbroken stream of daily existence. It means breathing air you never knew you needed. You develop an awareness of your own being and the others around you – and then you listen to them. 

As the founder of Conscious Life Events, Laura has practiced this mindful approach to living since 2011. In her childhood, she was always intuitive and interested in spirituality. But a series of traumatic events in her adult life ended with a moment of spiritual awakening. 

“Something inside me came alive,” she said. “Energy and life filled my soul, and there was purpose and everything about life made sense.”

After this transformational experience, Laura has lived in tune with her physical and mental needs. When she started receiving intuitive visions of holistic and spiritual communities, she reacted. 

Laura put her career in architecture and interior design on hold to reach like-minded people living esoteric lifestyles. The response was greater than she anticipated. 

What started as humble gatherings over coffee became the Conscious Life Holistic Wellness Festival, a weekend celebrating holistic health and wellbeing, alternative medicine and personal development. 

The expo invites local communities to connect with small businesses in the holistic and spiritual sectors for education and rejuvenation. After two challenging years, Conscious Life Festival returns to inspire, empower and transform lives from 2 to 3 July 2022. 

“It’s not just an exhibition,” Laura said. “It’s an experience.”

Held at Venue 114 in Bokarina, the program is overflowing with workshops, seminars, meditations and intuitive readings – not to mention more than 100 exhibitors specialising in kinesiology, hypnotherapy, astrology, numerology, crystals and more. 

Visitors can discover new and alternative health modalities in the exhibition halls before settling in for a series of seminars with industry leaders, practitioners and healers. 

Hear from Dr Sandeep Gupta, specialist general practitioner of integrative medicine; Dr Espen Hjalmby, quantum healer, conscious business mentor and ‘soulpreneur’; nationally renowned psychic medium Amanda De Warren; numerologist and spiritual teacher Sarah Yip; crystal specialist Bryony Gamble and so much more. 

There is also plenty of opportunity to organise and rest your mind with meditations and sound baths in the outdoor market space. In between sessions, visit the courtyard to soak up back-to-back live music and tuck into organic, diet-healthy snacks and sips. 

But Conscious Life Festival isn’t only for the wellness warriors and spiritual gurus! Laura welcomes anyone willing to explore lifestyles beyond their everyday periphery. 

There’s abundant space for families too, with an extensive kids’ program to entertain and educate the little ones – after all, it will be during the school holidays. Two dedicated areas will feature kid’s workshops, yoga classes, sound healing sessions and more.

As holistic and spiritual lifestyles become less of a trend and more of a movement, Laura is confident these modalities are here to stay. They transform mind, body and soul and produce real results for health conditions when modern medicine won’t work.

“There’s a place for western medicine, but there’s also a place for alternative medicine and a combination of both,” she said. “Conscious Life Events is here to promote practitioners and experts, but also to set up individuals on the journey to creating the best life they can.

“We have the potential as individuals to create everything and anything in our life. It’s just whether we choose to do that, and whether we have the tools.”

Conscious Life Festival provides access to explore a variety of services and reputable businesses in one location. 

Laura’s tribe of changemakers in holistic wellbeing, natural therapies and spirituality will be there to open your mind and balance your body and soul. 

Before long, Sunny Coasters won’t be the only ones experiencing this vital transformation. 

Laura has recognised a national need for mindful modalities – and easy access to them. 

“I want to create new events and conferences and franchise them across Australia,” she said.

“After the two years we’ve just experienced, people are questioning whether there’s more to life. 

“What’s important now is family connections, health and wellbeing.

“It’s time to get out there and help people.”
