If Ali Skiba looks familiar, you may have been watching The Voice on Channel 7 where this multi-instrumentalist singer, songwriter, sound healer, breathwork instructor and voice activation coach mesmerised judges and the audience with her unique vocal performance while ‘stirring’ quartz crystal singing bowls.
The Outback Spiritual Festival is on this weekend so visitors from far and wide are on their way to our unique region for a soulful weekend in the desert that organisers hope will become an annual event.
Ms Skiba is on her way to perform at the festival, so we caught up for a quick chat about her performance on The Voice and asked how she’s feeling about driving across the state from Sydney to play in front of our community this weekend.
“I’m so excited. I’ve never been out there so I don’t know what to expect. I just know I’m destined to be there in that sacred land to share my medicine.”
“I’m on a mission to raise the vibration of humanity so I was asking around about festivals I could attend and I heard the Outback Spiritual Festival was on. I’d never heard of it, but it felt right to be there,” said Ms Skiba.
The outback event has exhibitors offering a range of ancient practices such as Barkindji bush medicine, breath work, sound healing, yoga, kinesiology, and psychic/tarot reading, working alongside soulful artists, authors, musicians, dancers, as well as more contemporary practitioners discussing mental health, men’s empowerment, and much more. For fun there’s facepainting, henna body painting … and don’t forget to check out Australia’s Cowgirl Medium, Tonia Reeves!
How about creating some good karma by purchasing a ticket for someone in our community who’d otherwise be unable to attend. Pay-It-Forward Tickets are just $50 to make someone’s weekend very special!
