Victoria’s Energy Expo continues to grow

Psychics, shamans and other mystical practitioners on hand in James Bay this weekend

Psychic Andrea Zonnis flips tarot cards in her studio on Belmont Street. She is organizing this weekend’s Energy Expo in James Bay.

If you’ve ever had one of those feelings you can’t explain, this weekend offers up a workshop to help you develop your psychic abilities.

It’s one of 20 workshops taking place at the third annual Energy Expo, organized by Victoria-based psychic Andrea Zonnis.

The event, featuring 40 exhibitors, attracted 400 people last year, up from 100 the first year.

Psychic ability is something very similar to music, Zonnis said.

“We all have the capacity to be able to pick up and learn an instrument.”

Similarly, she said, we all have psychic gifts, though some are more naturally inclined toward them. “Those would be the Mozarts.”

More than just psychics, however, the two-day Energy Expo brings together practitioners of many kinds, including shamans, cranial sacral therapists, holistic healers and more.

The commonality, Zonnis said, is “connecting the mind and the body through spirit – knowing that everyone can heal themselves through the power of their mind.”

For people who are seeking out a practitioner, using discernment is “very important in this field,” she said. “Follow your own intuition and go with what feels right.”
