Paula Caracappa, founder and director of the Awaken Wellness Fairs in Westchester, is launching additional fairs in nearby states. Caracappa plans to bring the popular event to Ft. Lee, New Jersey, on September 15 and to New York City and Connecticut in 2014. The traditional Tarrytown Awaken Fair takes place on November 3 this year.
The popular body-mind-spirit-green expos have been part of the Westchester wellness scene for 12 years, and now Caracappa plans to offer her model for creating Awaken Fairs as a franchise or license across the country. “I’m committed to educating the general public about the variety of health services and products that are available today,” she says. “I present the fairs in a hotel setting because I want to ease people who are curious, but undereducated, into the world of ancient and cutting-edge healing and wellness practices.”
Caracappa is the long-time chairperson of the Westchester Holistic Network, an organization of “spiritual beings on a human journey,” who meet monthly for breakfast presentations. She is also an ordained reverend, a certified Reiki Master and a polarity and Emotional Freedom Technique practitioner. “Part of my new business plan is to promote these skills worldwide via a new website and teleseminars,” she says. “I also love to help other holistic practitioners promote their businesses with eblasts to my vast address list.”
