Later on, TV host Atz Kilcher and his daughter, singer Jewel, hosted a “Healing a Parent-Child Relationship” discussion on the Johnson & Johnson stage. Meanwhile, mixed martial artist Michelle Waterson and her 8-year-old, Araya, held a mother-daughter workout with Bodyarmor.

The “Intuition” singer, who cofounded the three-day festival, returned for day two on Saturday, August 17. She signed copies of her book, Never Broken: Songs Are Only Half the Story, and visited various booths with Kroger Health CEO Colleen Lindholz. She also took the stage again, this time with Josie Dunne.

Jewel previously described the festival as “a combination of my passions: health, wellness and music,” saying attendees can “hear from the coolest people and experts who have spent a lifetime seeking wisdom on how to live a healthier and happier life.”
