SPARKS Symposium 2012
Saturday, August 11, 2012 at 9:00 AM - Sunday, August 12, 2012 at 5:00 PM (EDT)
SPARKS SYMPOSIUM 2012:
Seeking Passion, Adventure, Renewal, Knowledge & Spirit
The SPARKS Symposium was created out of a desire to bring holistic, health, lifestyle and wellness information to the Southern Ontario Region through dynamic, interactive means. Neither trade show nor conference, it is a forum through which to explore the creation of a healthy, inspired life presented by experts from varied fields and backgrounds.
Sparks bring kindling to flame, bring excitement to light and bring connections to fruition. The intent of the SPARKS Symposium is that each lecture, workshop and activity can act as its own spark to inspire attendees to carry the flame back into their own lives. Recognizing the power of the holistic model, the event is organized around energetic principles. Moving from the more physically-focused events on Saturday morning through to more spiritually-focused events on Sunday afternoon. Each of the 4 venues at the Symposium location allows for a different approach in presentation, from conference-type lecture to activity-friendly open space.
