The Illuminate Expo Returns to Flat Rock

Illuminate: The Psychic and Healing Arts Expo, returns to Flatrock, North Carolina, on Saturday and Sunday, October 28 and 29. The producers of the expo, Julie King and Itha Trantham, describe the event as “a celebration of the wonderful holistic and spiritual communities in the Upstate and mountain areas” which offers “real intuitive guidance, alternative healing therapies and great information.”

King comments, “The first expo in July 2016 was a great success and the 3rd event promises to be more expansive.”

Illuminate Expo hosts 40 intuitive, psychic readers and healers offering their services for $20 per session, and there are free lectures and seminars each day on a variety of topics. Vendors offer gifts, books, healing tools, crystals, jewelry, art, music and more, and a variety of practitioners, spiritual organizations and tools can be found to enlighten participants and help them thrive during stressful times.

King explains the purpose of the expo: “Our world is changing at an ever-accelerating rate and it is imperative that we find ways to cope and stay balanced. We are all unique, so experimentation helps us find the modalities, counselors and techniques that resonate with each of us.”

The Illuminate Expo is co-sponsored by Crystal Visions Books, Natural Awakenings Upstate, and Channel 70 Video Productions.

Time: 10am-6pm both days. Cost: $9/day; kids under 12 free. Admission includes raffle. Location: Blue Ridge Community College Conference Hall, 180 W. Campus Dr., Flat Rock, NC.
