Free Spirit Holistic Expo Coming to Area: June 2, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The first annual Free Spirit Holistic Expo is coming to Fable: From Farm to Table, in Ossining, on June 2, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Michele Bell, who created the wellness and holistic healing event, says she’s in the process of lining up sponsors and vendors from a broad range of spiritual and yogic disciplines, with the aim of fostering “a deep sense of healing connection, with everybody joining the fest.” She anticipates that more than 400 people will attend the day of food, fun and motivational talks.
“This will be a hybrid show, featuring vendors, practitioners and presenters,” she says. “We’ll showcase everything from wellness centers and integrative medicine to aromatherapy, yoga, meditation and even intuitive consultants. Eco-friendly wedding and real estate vendors are encouraged to join the organic fest too. Our goal is to open the hearts and minds of all who attend, providing a doorway into a deeper understanding of our highest potential.”
Workshops will focus on diet, exercise and spiritual development to prolong and improve quality of life, Bell says. Vendors will offer natural health, beauty and home products; organic foods; alternative medicines; and meditation, yoga, massage and other natural therapies.
The expo is being sponsored by Natural Awakenings, Sarah’s House of Health and Westchester Concierge. It will benefit Skippers Angel Wings, a nonprofit Bell established in 2003.
“When a family is brought down by the devastation of a critically ill child, we aim to elevate the emotional wellbeing of families so they can fight for their kids’ lives,” she says. “Our next project’s proceeds will go towards The Sanctuary, the future location where critically ill children can be in harmony in between medical treatments to improve their quality of life. We need land, an expert team with vision, and donors.”
