Letter from Publisher, September 2018

September is shaping up to be a busy month with lots of activities in the Upstate. On September 25, Natural Awakenings is presenting the documentary film, HEAL, at Zen Greenville. You will find more details on this event here. We are excited to be bringing you this film featuring leading medical and spiritual leaders like Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Marianne Williamson, Gregg Braden and others whose names are familiar to many of our readers.

Besides tapping into the brilliant minds of today’s leading scientists and spiritual healers, the film takes us on a scientific and spiritual journey where we discover that our thoughts, beliefs, and emotions have a huge impact on our health and ability to heal. The film follows the case histories of two individuals on actual high-stakes healing journeys, and reveals that—while healing is extremely complex and deeply personal —it can also happen spontaneously, in a moment. Following their journeys, we find out what works, what doesn’t and why.

Registration starts at 6:15 pm. There will be light refreshments served and the ability to interact with leading natural health and sustainable living vendors from the Upstate prior to the start of the film.

Another event to put on your calendar is the first annual Women in Business Expo being held at McAlister Square on Saturday, September 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., with free parking and admission. There is a 3-pronged approach that includes the expo, a networking event and a fundraiser, reports event coordinator and owner of Circulation Nation, Linda Craig. The networking event takes place Thursday, September 27, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Zen Greenville. Food, beverages, and a cash bar will be available at this event where women can share their business passion with others, and even practice their 15-second action-oriented business introduction on all who attend. Tickets are $100 each. Read more about this event here.

As part of the networking event, the fundraiser will benefit Miracle Hill. A video and a short presentation will be shown focusing on their Shepherd’s Gate Division, which helps women in dire need in the Upstate. A portion of the funds from the events will be donated to them.

Don’t forget to mark your calendar for these entertaining, educational and worthwhile programs coming in September.

Peace and Blessings,

Roberta Bolduc
