Admission is free to the fair — while tea and cookies, books, crystals and tarot decks will be available for purchase.
For those interested in 25-minute readings from the various workers, the fee will be $30.
All of Saturday's activities will be in the Unity center, 3918 San Juan Ave.
“We've assembled a pretty impressive group of practitioners, healers and teachers,” said Kristin Mineah, a spokeswoman for the center.
A sampling of the people, many of them from Sequim or Port Townsend, who will be present Saturday:
Spiritual medium Sarah Nash, channeler Sherri Anderson, intuitive healer Jenny Allen, Akashic Records reader Erin Lamb, hand analyst Brwyn Griffin, astrologers Jeff Peters and Glenna Bain, tea-leaf reader Kristine Rose-Walsh, tarot readers and energy workers Zorina Wolf, Zylpha Elliott, Trudy Roush, Suzanne Rodgers and Unity's the Rev. Pam Douglas-Smith.
Mini-classes will be offered during the day on soul retrieval, teachings of the medicine wheel and introductory tarot.
A group channeling, with a maximum of 30 participants, also is planned.
During Saturday's Psychic Faire, parking will be plentiful across the street from the center at Blue Heron Middle School, 3939 San Juan Ave.
“Whether you come for insight or entertainment, this event has something to offer everyone,” said organizer Dianne Diamond.
The day also will be about healing, added Nash, a nationally known psychic who lives in Port Townsend.
“It is my deepest belief that we all have a plan, and we all know how to heal ourselves,” Nash said.
“However, sometimes we can use a little help from someone who understands how to shine the light on a path that may seem invisible to us.
“I have come to understand that the law of attraction means that you have to give in order to get.
“It never ceases to amaze me how many people sit around waiting for the cosmic Federal Express truck to deliver their perfect lives to their front door . . . Many people have developed an unhealthy sense of entitlement.
“If I discover that, I will sit you down and point it out.
“I will not soft-shoe around difficult issues . . .
“If you are sincerely ready to heal, I can help you on your way.”
Anderson is a Sequim resident who has studied Native American and Peruvian medicine ways for two decades.
She started in the early 1990s with the work of Cherokee teacher and author J.T. Garrett, then expanded her studies to Peru, where she's lived half the year for the past six years.
Anderson will give individual readings and convene the group channeling session with a group she calls the “Spirit Doctors,” or her “peeps,” as she lightheartedly calls them.
“There is a central theme that 'the peeps' delight in sharing,” Anderson noted: “one of unlimited and unconditional love, hope and possibility.”
In recent months, Unity of Port Townsend itself has undergone a transition.
After almost 30 years without a permanent home, the organization moved in August into what used to be a roller-skating rink.
“There are huge plans,” said Mineah, “for classes from all spiritual paths, a healing center for energy medicine, opportunities for meditation . . . as well as the opportunity for others to rent our space for their own events a bit down the road.
“We hope to start a children's center once we get settled in,” she added.
