Connect with holistic and spiritual vendors from all over the East Coast at the sixth annual Inner Light Holistic Expo, being held at the Coventry Mall, in Pottstown. The expo will run November 12 from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and November 13 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. There is no cost to attend this community-based event. Over 100 vendors are expected, including reflexologists, psychic readers, aura photographers, reiki practitioners, chiropractors and massage therapists, as well as organic products such as candles and soaps.
Expo organizer Cristina Leeson, who owns Inner Light Holistic Center, in Gilbertsville, says the focus is on the energy of spiritual community that has been created at the expo since the beginning. “Our vendors come back every year and are so caring and committed to our expo. They show their passion of their gifts and share so freely, making it a very loving event,” she says.
Free lectures will be offered all weekend, with topics such as essential oils, meditation, spiritual and intuitive development, chiropractic care and healthy herbs. “People are hungry for knowledge and are seeking more spiritual and holistic avenues. It’s time to put our focus back on ourselves and what we feel resonates with what our spirit craves. We have the answers within,” Leeson says. Attendees are encouraged to try something new and connect with others that are interested in spiritual and holistic growth. “In these modern days of technology, we find ourselves more and more separated from each other. It is my mission to show just how many of these caring and compassionate people are out there, empowering our community and the world,” says Leeson.
Natural Awakenings of Bucks & Montgomery County is the official media sponsor of this year’s festival. “The mission of our publication is to support and promote the holistic health practitioners in our area, and to spread their good work to the increasing numbers of local people that are embracing a holistic lifestyle. Cristina’s expo is an incredible opportunity to do that in a concentrated way,” says Publisher and Director of Advertising Partnerships, Karen G. Meshkov. In reference to the wide range of vendors that will be at the event, she offers, “Their success is our success—we are interdependent, and together, we are Making the Awakening here in BuxMont.”
