Sun Valley is rightfully known for consistent, perfect vertical on our slopes; the best cross country skiing in the country; hiking and mountain biking and rock climbing. But Sun Valley is also famous for its thriving arts scene. Local galleries feature top artists that draw collectors from near and far. Renown speakers and performers grace stages and podiums year-round. The calendar is dotted with star-studded film festivals and conferences.

The highly regarded and much anticipated Sun Valley Wellness Festival starts tomorrow and there is so much to enjoy. From the amazing keynote speakers and presenters: Jewel, MC YOGI, and Marianne Williamson, to workshops, ways to get outside or get moving, specialty shopping and experiences, it is quite the lineup.
The popular Sun Valley Wellness Festival returns this weekend and there is truly something for everyone in the lineup
And there are lots of ways to go deep into whatever it is that captures your imagination most. Many speakers offer workshops, as well – a great way to keep the conversation going in a small group setting. Whether you are interested in meditation, building resiliency, finding your own voice, embracing grace, practicing yoga, or frequency vibrations, there is a workshop for that. And that’s only on Friday! Workshops are a terrific way to practice what the teachers are teaching, to ask questions, and to really explore something you are interested in.
A host of presentations dominate Saturday and Sunday’s schedule. For a full listing, please click HERE but a sampling includes: Mindfulness and the New Brain Science; Finding a Life of Love, Passion, and Laughter after 50 and Beyond; Anatomy for Energy Medicine; and There is No Try, There is Only Do. No matter what subjects draw your interest, these presentations are sure to be enlightening.
The Experience Hall is filled with wonderful things to buy, smell, explore, and, well, experience
In addition, the free-to-the-public Experience Hall is a great way to explore the Festival. Here, purveyors of essential oils, hand crafted jewelry, fashionable togs, fine art, books, and vegan products share space with soul readings, neuro astrologers, Thai massage therapists, and mediums and spiritual healers. The Experience Hall is located at the Sun Valley Inn and is a feast for the senses!
If you need to nourish your body while nourishing your mind and soul, the Konditorei at the Sun Valley Village will take care of you. Manager Matt Robinson is offering a healthy and delicious special for the weekend. Come and power up for the day with Pesto Cauliflower Hash with red pepper, onion, roasted artichokes, housemade thyme rosti potatoes, and two fried eggs for $13. Yum! Next door at the Short Line Deli, another special will make it very easy to enjoy a quick, healthy meal and get on to your next event. There, for Wellness weekend, they will make a Hummus Wrap – locally made hummus with cucumbers, carrots, cherry tomatoes, and romaine lettuce in a spinach tortilla.
