7th annual Natural Living Expo coming to Marlborough Nov. 16-17
By Bonnie Adams. Managing Editor
Marlborough – If you have ever been curious about such things as ways that you could eat healthier, deal with stress more effectively, tap into the spirit world or live life “greener,” then you are in luck. Over the course of Saturday, Nov. 16 and Sunday, Nov. 17 those topics and many more will be highlighted at the 7th annual Natural Living Expo which will be held at the Royal Plaza Hotel and Trade Center.
The expo is organized by mother-daughter team of Carol Bedrosian and Michella Brudner, who also publish the popular monthly magazine “Spirit of Change.”
This year’s expo will feature 225 exhibitors ranging from holistic and green products, fair trade shopping and information about body-mind-spirit healthy living. There will also be over 90 workshops over the course of the weekend featuring nationally known speakers such as Gabrielle Bernstein, John Holland, Matthew Sanford, Dr. Will Tuttle, Dr. Bernie Siegel, and Southborough resident Marilyn Taylor.
Popular new age musician Wah! will be performing Saturday, Nov. 16 at 7 p.m., with 100 percent of the $35 ticket price donated to Amma’s worldwide humanitarian projects of Embracing the World®.
In previous years the show was held in Sturbridge. Brudner said the decision to move the expo to Marlborough this year was an easy one.
“Over the last few years we have been getting many more people attending. This location will allow us to expand – we have over 100 more exhibitors this year. It is a very easy location to get to from all of the major highways and there is plenty of free parking,” she said.
The expo, she noted, truly does have something for everyone of all ages, whether they are fully devoted to a holistic lifestyle or they are just starting to become curious about a particular topic.
“It’s a great way to explore a new topic and learn more about it,” she added.
Taylor, a licensed massage therapist, certified life coach and owner of Confident Directions Life Coaching, will be one of the keynote speakers. She will be discussing her “Crazy Busy Cure.”
“People nowadays have a deep need and hunger to feel more connected. And with so much chaos and stress in the world, we all are personally affected,” she said.
Her workshop will help people identify chronic energy drains and learn techniques that can help them deal with all of that stress, in a way that aligns with their own personal values, commitments and life purpose.
Taylor has been associated with the expo since its inception.
“Michella and Carol do a wonderful job bringing such a wide variety of exhibitors together,” she said. “It’s a great way to bring information to the public and help them learn more about how to increase their health and well-being.”
The Royal Plaza Hotel and Trade Center is located at 181 Boston Post Road, Marlborough. The price of admission is $12 for the entire weekend. (90+ workshops are included in the price of the admission. There is an extra charge for some of the workshops.) The expo will be held Saturday, Nov. 16 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
