The Awaken Wellness Fair, the long-running “body-mind-spirit-green” expo, will return to New York City from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., July 28, in its unique location: the ground floor, mezzanine and 16th floor of the Roger Smith Hotel. Free tickets are available at

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

Throughout the day, guests can stop by the Screening Room on the hotel mezzanine level or the Penthouse on the 16th floor to hear expert presentations on “awakening to your best self.” Among the many presentations are Beyond Buddhism Blueprint: Steps to Reclaim Personal Power and Freedom from Limiting Culture and Tradition; A Celebration of Life after Death; and World Change: A Spiritual Perspective.

An assortment of vendors will be on hand offering products and services to support a healthy lifestyle. “They present huge variety, ranging from essential oils to chiropractic doctors to nutritional supplements and organic cleaning products,” Caracappa says. “Of course, the best vendors of healing crystals and jewelry are at the fair too, offering love-focused rose quartz, healing turquoise, serenity-inducing amethyst and all the others, both as loose stones as well as embedded in handmade jewelry.”

Intuitive readers and holistic healers are always a big part of the show, she adds. “These practitioners offer insight through tarot reading, mediumship, angel reading and pet readings, for entertainment purposes only. There are also gifted energy healers who practice a variety of modalities, including Reiki. Healing practices have become more and more mainstream recently, and many people sample a healing practice for the first time at the Awaken Fair.” Until July 27, discount-rate appointments can be made with readers and healers at
