The Awaken Wellness Fair, the long-running “body-mind-spirit-green expo,” will return to New York City July 29, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., in a new location, the Roger Smith Hotel (on the mezzanine and the 16th floor), at 501 Lexington Avenue at East 47th Street. Free tickets are available from Eventbrite.

“Men and women who are curious about holistic practices are attracted to the Awaken Fairs,” says their founder and director, Paula Caracappa. “They find abundant information encompassing the world of ancient as well as new, cutting-edge healing and wellness methods. Often guests have come expecting to spend a couple of hours and find themselves spending the entire day, because there is so much exciting knowledge to gather.”

Two rooms will be devoted to free presentations on how to “awaken to your best self,” she says. In the vendor area, visitors can learn about products and services such as essential oils, chiropractic, nutritional supplements, organic cleaning products and healing crystals and jewelry.

Intuitive readers and holistic healers are a big part of the fair, Caracappa says. “This group offers insight through tarot reading, mediumship, angel reading, pet readings and many more, for entertainment purposes only. The gifted healers practice a variety of energy healing, including Reiki. Healing practices have become more and more mainstream, and many people sample a healing practice for the first time at the Awaken Fair.” Until July 28, discounted appointments can be made with readers and healers online at
