2015 Natural Healthy Living Directory Issue
How appropriate that we kickoff the year with our 2015 Natural Healthy Living Directory issue. The special annual super-section has more than 60 directory listings and profiles of local practitioners and businesses for you to explore, starting on page 36.
Natural Awakenings is designed to benefit our readers from beginning to end. We intend the magazine to be your go-to resource to use throughout the year. We understand that when you learn about a practitioner, modality, product or business that resonates with you—and that you may not necessarily need it immediately—that’s where this annual directory edition comes into play, so you have what you need at your fingertips when you’re ready for assistance. As a friend of mine says, “We can all use some assisted living.”
We are also thrilled to announce that 2015 brings our first official Natural Awakenings of Boston event. We’re still in the planning stages, but are able to leak a few details. We’ll be presenting a community screening of the documentary film, The Connection. It reveals groundbreaking research by leading global experts in mind-body medicine and true stories of recovery. It’s a must see, with many experts from Greater Boston also participating.
A panel discussion will follow the viewing, featuring local mind-body experts eager to engage in the conversation. The next course of the day for movie goers will be experiencing a range of mind-body modalities and techniques. We anticipate these will include Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, meditation, qigong, tai chi, yoga therapy, guided imagery, breathwork, hypnotherapy, tapping, biofeedback and art and music therapy. We’ll have all of these practitioners in one place in one afternoon, ready to help in your explorations. Stay tuned for more details, we’ll keep you in the loop as we finalize plans.
We invite you now to turn the page and read on… you never know when there’s a gem within meant especially for you.
