This event was educational and spiritual ! Ital food and healthy smoothies available and prepared with pure and clean hands and heart! The music was sweet!! Truths and rights ...Legend! No slackness ! Iyahful location...on the water with cool breeze a

I am a registered nurse and found this event to be very medically informative and necessary. I was glad and feel it was important that some of the her/history of this Precious herb was taught; especially how the RastaFarI Istren and Idren endured so much cruel, unjust persecution for the possession and consumption of only a very small amount! Many people are not aware of this. It was the Rasta, who from way back, knew the medicinal and ritual purposes of this Precious herb. So InI give thanks and honour InI Istren and Idren for their teachings, strength, livity and endurance! Good, positive, irie vibes! Ital food and smoothies prepared with pure and clean hands and heart! Music sweet! No slackness.... Legend music! Nyahbinghi drumming! Iyahful location on the water with cool breeze and Iyahful sunset. Lots of arts and crafts, nicely set up tables with chalices, clothing, jewelry, accessories, edibles and sampling of various Precious herbs! Will definitely attend in 2018!!!! Thanks for bringing the Positive to Jamaica again......InI need it! Greatly missed! Blessed ❤️
