Natural Awakenings Fairfield Cty/Housatonic Valley, CT

Awaken Fair, Body-Mind-Spirit Expo, Returns to Tarrytown

Mar 02, 2015 01:00AM

Awaken Wellness Fair returns to its home base in Westchester on March 15 from 10am to 5pm at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown, New York.

Designed to be fun and educational, the body-mind-spirit-green expo includes two rooms of speakers with a continuous program of 45-minute presentations. The focus in one room will be more scientific, the other more metaphysical, with no additional charge to attend the talks. Another area will feature more than 20 intuitive readers and a dozen healers practicing a variety of modalities. (Discounted appointments with readers and healers can be made in advance after purchase of an expo ticket online.) In the hotel’s main ballroom, a variety of vendors will offer the latest products and services to support a healthy lifestyle, ranging from Ayurvedic doctors to vendors of crystals, nutritional supplements and organic cleaning products.

For 13 years, this wellness-focused, educational and experiential event has attracted well over 100 exhibitors each spring and fall to Tarrytown, says organizer Paula Caracappa. “Attendance has grown from 42 people at the first event in 2002 to a thousand in recent years, and this year the fair has expanded to seven events in the tri-state,” she says. “But the goal remains to introduce wellness services and products that are available today. The fair attracts people who are curious about holistic practices, from ancient modalities to cutting-edge healing and wellness methods.”
