Illuminate Expo Returns to Flat Rock

The Illuminate Expo, a bi-annual psychic and healing arts event, will return to Flat Rock, North Carolina on Saturday and Sunday, April 13 and 14 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Produced by Julie King and Itha Trantham, the expo offers intuitive guidance and alternative healing therapies. Over 70 vendors, including a variety of practitioners, spiritual organizations, and those providing tools for sale, will be at the event to “assist and enlighten attendees and help them thrive during these stressful times,” King explains. “We are all unique, so experimenting is helpful in finding the modalities, counselors and techniques that work for each of us,” she continues.

Admission is $9 per day, free for children under 12, and includes free lectures and seminars as well as a raffle. The expo hosts psychic/intuitive readers and intuitive healers offering their services for the low price of $20 per session, which enables patrons to sample the talents of several practitioners. Eclectic vendors will offer gifts, books, healing tools, crystals, jewelry, art, music, and more, and food will be available for purchase. “We invite you to join us. Your spirits will be uplifted,” King declares. “Our intention is to create the space for a more positive future.”

The expo celebrates the holistic and spiritual communities in the Upstate and mountain areas. Community support and attendance continues to grow with 500 participants and over 800 readings per weekend.

The Illuminate Expo will be held at Blue Ridge Community College Conference Hall, 49 E. Campus Dr., Flat Rock, N.C. For more information, call 831-601-9005, email or visit
