The Mind Body Spirit Festival is a festival that first took place at the Olympia Exhibition Centre in London in 1977. It was founded by Graham Wilson. The theme was the relationship between religion, the paranormal, spirituality, natural healing, consciousness and personal growth with the aim of making these ideas more accessible to everyone. Now under the stewardship of Melvyn Carlile the show is now relocated in Olympia for 2019 and continues to grow year on year.

Today thousands of visitors from the UK and abroad attend the celebrations in London, attracted by an eclectic mix of musicians, international workshop leaders, best-selling authors, artists and cutting edge exhibitors

The Mind Body Spirit Festival was subsequently presented in New York City, Los Angeles, Cork, San Francisco, Sydney, Melbourne and in most major cities, often using the Mind Body Spirit name and following the successful formula of exhibitors, leading authors and authorities giving lectures and workshops, as well as a mix of music and performances.
