About Us

Welcome to the Enlighten Adelaide community!

The Enlighten Adelaide Festival was created by Sue Shaw, Festival Director, to provide a welcoming and friendly environment where people can learn from professional and quality local South Australian businesses how to take care of their own health and well-being, have more energy and balance in their lives.

South Australia’s “feel good” Festival has something for everyone and provide people with the opportunity to experience and try something new with a full program of free workshops, demonstrations, and come n try classes.

The festival has rapidly grown in its 11 years into South Australia’s leading health and well-being festivals offering professional, quality and authentic products and services in the wellness space.

Sue’s extensive experience (over 30 years) in corporate event management, advertising, sponsorship, media, marketing and promotion, combined with her experience as a Health & Well-being Practitioner herself (owner of Shara Sanctuary & Retreat), provide the perfect foundation to create a unique, professional and quality festival.

The sublime energy that emanates from this festival can be felt the moment you enter. 

Enlighten Adelaide continues to grow, thanks to the support of the local community, sponsors and volunteers.

The sister festival to Enlighten Adelaide was created in 2013 with the first Riverland Wellness Festival held in Renmark, which is now a permanent annual event on the calendar for the Riverland region. Part proceeds of this event support the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Sue also facilitates Corporate Wellness Programs, a weekly meditation group, runs workshops, weekend retreats and self development courses as well as being a Wellness Practitioner herself at Shara Sanctuary & Retreat, Centre for Health & Wellbeing, located in Hallett Cove, South Australia.

With the recent launch of Enlighten Tribe – Community Making a Difference, people can get involved with monthly gatherings and connect more regularly with like-minded individuals wanting to make a difference.
