Natural Awakenings Washington DC Metro

Healthy Living Expo in Rockville

Oct 01, 2014 08:57AM
Natural Awakenings and Dawson’s Market have teamed up to bring an exciting new event to the greater D.C. healthy living scene. On Sunday, October 12 from noon to 4 p.m., some of the area’s finest natural, holistic, green and organic practitioners, businesses and experts will be available to meet, talk, listen and share. The event takes place at Dawson’s Market, both inside and out on Rockville Town Square, with the talks, demos and workshops taking place at VisArts, just adjacent to Dawson’s. The best part is---it is all free.

During the expo, attendees will have the opportunity to chat and learn more about naturopathic, alternative and complementary healing methods, with experts and practitioners so it is a wonderful opportunity to ask questions and find answers to your health questions. Have you ever wondered what acupuncture was like? Is there a way to train your brain to be “unstuck” in unproductive thought patterns? The expo will provide opportunities to learn and explore.

The always-fun group, With Love DC, known for bringing meditation and yoga flash mobs to unlikely parts of the city, will be on hand to lead everyone (who wants to participate) in a bit of unstressing, so keep your yoga mat at hand.

There will also be a variety of products---to consume, to clean, to wear and to make your life a bit easier. Dawson’s will also be providing tastings from some of their regular chefs and bakers. Organic skin care items will also be available to try and purchase.

A series of talks will be offered at VisArts on a wide range of topics, including meditation and detoxifying your life. VisArts is a nonprofit arts center that engages and encourages the community to make the world a bit more beautiful, with extensive programming for children, teens and adults as well as a gallery exhibition.

Dawson’s Market, as they approach their second anniversary, is becoming well-known for bringing highly innovative food and drink related events to the area in addition to their high quality local and regional products, and stands by their tagline, “To be the heart and soul of our community through a strong commitment to local and organic foods.” As such, Dawson’s is the perfect partner to work alongside Natural Awakenings, whose team is committed to forging a strong community of health seekers in the greater D.C. area.

The event is open to one and all. Invite your friends or plan to make a new one at the first (of many to come) Healthy Living Expo on October 12.

Location: Dawson’s Market is located at 225 N. Washington St., in the Rockville Town Square. VisArts is located at 155 Gibbs St., Rockville. Free parking is available and metro accessible via the Rockville station. For more information and a schedule of events, visit:
