We asked each member of the team what they bring to the Festival and why they support it. Here’s what they said.


The Enlighten Adelaide Festival was one of Sue’s dreams that came true when she managed the first festival in 2011 with the philosophy of bringing like-minded local businesses together from the health and well-being industry to increase awareness of the wonderful Practitioners we have here so that visitors could discover, explore, learn and experience something new.

Sue’s aim was to create a South Australian event that fosters team spirit and working together for the same unified goal.

This year will be the eighth annual festival in South Australia thanks to our loyal attendees, local SA exhibitors, the local community and business support, as well as sponsors who have helped to continue to expand and grow the festival.

Sue brings a wealth of event management skills, marketing, sponsorship, communication, graphic design, and PR experience to the team. She is also a Reiki Master, Certified Angel Intuitive and Psychosomatic Therapist.

Pina brings her vast wisdom and experience of working with the Divine energies, as a direct channel, to assist with clearing the sacred space and filling it with love and light. She advises on preparing and organising the space to deliver the highest vibrational energy flow for the event under the guidance of the Divine realm. The higher vibrational energy is set using a combination of the ancient language delivered through the angelic voices, assisted by Crystal and Tibetan bowls, for the high vibrational healing of all.

I see the Enlighten Adelaide Festival as something Adelaide has to have, a showcase of Adelaide’s spiritual wares and services, to help with a growing awareness and hunger for wellness, spirituality, alternative and complimentary modalities, enlightenment and joyfullness.

From little things BIG things grow. This little sprouting acorn (EA) has no limits where it can spread out to. If it can be The Adelaide Tree of Enlightenment then I want to water and mulch this little one. I want to nurture and protect this little one. I want to see it grow till we can take away the wind breaks and let it stand tall and strong. I want to hear the Wisdom emanate from this OAK and see the Elementals dancing around the trunk. I want to smell the fresh leaves growing and feel the radiant aliveness of its Spirit. This Gardener will do any job for Enlighten Adelaide (Tree of Life).

Supporting, advertising, helping set-up and take-down, nurturing people involved and being on call for whatever is needed, this is my Gardening pledge.
