The Revolution of Consciousness, or RevCon—a healthy living, healthy planet expo founded by Maisie Raftery, publisher of Natural Awakenings in Boston—is expanding to Albany on May 6, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center, 660 Albany-Shaker Road. It will feature local exhibitors and presenters from “the seven dimensions of wellness”: physical, social, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, financial and environmental.

Highlights will include a morning screening of Secret Ingredients, a new documentary by Jeffrey Smith and Amy Hart, which shares stories of people who regained their health after removing certain “secret ingredients” from their diet. The film will be followed by a panel discussion with Hart and Kathleen DiChiara, who is featured in the film.

Visitors can also experience various types of bodywork, energy work and sound healing; movement classes; and workshops and presentations from local experts. There will be a labyrinth for walking meditation, space for quiet contemplation, a local food truck, and exhibiting vendors from within the “healthy living, healthy planet” realm.

“When we brought forth the concept of the Revolution of Consciousness, we wanted to create an experience that brings our magazine to life—a place where our advertisers and their colleagues could gather to meet each other, as well as for our readers to connect with them face to face in a relaxed and high-vibe atmosphere," Raftery says.

Tickets cost $16 and can be purchased at RevConEvents.com (use code RevConEB2018 for $5 off registration). Interested vendors should call 401.589.1321 for information.
