Take the first step toward a healthier, more fulfilling lifestyle at the Empowered Light Holistic Expo. The expo runs from 5 to 9 p.m., April 28, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., April 29 and 30, at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, 100 Station Avenue, Oaks. Admission is $5 on Friday, $10 on Saturday and Sunday, and $20 for a weekend pass.
Now in its second year, the expo’s focus is on holistic lifestyles, spiritual classes and personal development. “So many people are looking for answers! They need healthier ways to handle the increasing stress they’re facing,” says the expo’s founder, Sue Greenwald, who is also the owner of Thrive Yoga, in Malvern. “The Expo offers structure, new friends, new ideas and, most of all, a community where people feel supported.”
Participants can take part in yoga, meditation, tai chi, sound healing, reiki and massage demonstrations, and choose from over 30 workshops and lectures over the course of the weekend. Renowned spiritual medium Joseph Tittel is among the scheduled speakers, as well as experts on topics such as essential oils and developing your intuition. “We have dozens of vendors with a variety of merchandise, such as salt lamps, candles, tapestries and gems,” says Greenwald. “But the expo isn’t about selling stuff; it’s about fostering a fun and healing environment for the community to explore and connect.”
In keeping with its mission to promote healthy living in a healthy planet and engage with the community, Natural Awakenings magazines from Bucks and Montgomery counties, Chester and Delaware counties and Philadelphia are proud to be this event’s media sponsors. Natural Awakenings BuxMont publisher Karen G. Meshkov offers, “One of the most powerful ways we have to create transformation is when we are together, in community.”
