Deeper Connection to Self and Community at Empowered Light Holistic Expo

Featured

This fall’s Empowered Light Holistic Expo is just around the corner, running from 5 to 9 p.m., October 27, and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., October 28 and 29, at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, 100 Station Avenue, in Oaks. Plenty of free parking is available.

The expo’s focus is on holistic lifestyles, spiritual classes and personal development. “Most people feel stressed and distracted, and are looking for more connection and answers,” says the expo’s founder, Sue Greenwald. “They need healthier ways to handle the increasing stress they’re facing. The expo offers connection with new friends, new ideas and, most of all, a community where people feel supported in a fun way.”

Empowered Light seeks to engage attendees through experiential types of classes, like yoga, meditation and sound healing, or mini-treatments, such as reiki and massage. Attendees can choose from over 50 workshops and lectures over the course of the weekend, all designed with the goal of enlightening and empowering, as well as encouraging participation. Most workshops and lectures are included with general admission tickets, with advance sale discounted tickets for the featured speakers.

Author and energy healer Ataana

Renowned Gaia TV host and intuitive Corey Goode is a featured speaker, as is author John Van Auken, director of the Edgar Cayce Foundation. Professor Semir “Dr. Sam” Osmanagich, who discovered the Bosnian Pyramids, will be presenting, as will Ataana, author and energy healer from Nashville.

Other scheduled speakers include psychic mediums, published authors and experts on a variety of health-related and spiritual development topics, including developing one’s intuition. Guests will be able to linger and shop in between workshops and talks with more than 150 holistic vendors. “Our vendor halls will host a variety of natural products and holistic merchandise like crystals, clothing or locally made jewelry,” explains Greenwald. “They can also try healing treatments, and many people come for psychic and intuitive readings to help guide them. Everyone will have an opportunity to get what they need out of the expo—connection, information, contacts, new experiences… it’s different for everyone. The expo is a fun and healing environment where the community can 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, Philadelphia, Chester and Delaware counties, Berks and Lancaster counties and Lehigh Valley 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.”

Cost: General admission tickets, $7.50 to $27. For more information, visit EmpoweredLight.com, call 484-459-3082 or email EmpoweredLightExpo@gmail.com. October 2017
