Bestselling authors Don Miguel Ruiz and Neale Donald Walsch, whose books have changed the lives of millions throughout the world, headline the 13th annual MIND BODY SPIRIT EXPO, the largest alternative health expo in the Northeast United States, taking place October 22 to October 24th at the Valley Forge Convention Center.
Don Miguel Ruiz was born into a family of healers and is a Toltec teaching master. His book The Four Agreements was on the NY Times Bestseller list for seven years and has been read by millions throughout the world. With his newest book, The Fifth Agreement, he offers a fresh perspective on the Four Agreements, and a powerful new agreement for transforming our lives into our personal heaven, one that takes us to a deeper level of awareness of the power of the Self and returns us to the authenticity we were born with. In 2002, Don Miguel survived a near fatal heart attack. Its impact prevents him from widely lecturing throughout the country and world, so the Mind Body Spirit Expo is honored to host Don Miguel in a rare appearance on the East Coast. Don Miguel will be accompanied by his son, Don Jose, who co-authored The Fifth Agreement with his father.
Neale Donald Walsch is a modern day spiritual messenger whose words continue to touch the world in profound ways. His Conversations with God series has been translated into 34 languages, touching millions of lives and inspiring important changes in their day-to-day lives. The With God Series has redefined God and shifted spiritual paradigms around the globe. Neale’s newest book, When Everything Changes, Change Everything, speaks to the heart of every person who has lost their bearings in the aftermath of a major life change—and to those who would help them.
Joining this impressive guest list are Colette Baron-Reid, Deborah King, and Psalm Isadora.
Dubbed by the international fashion magazine ‘W’ as “the intuitive’s intuitive,” Colette Baron-Reid is an intuitive counselor, educator and best selling Hay House author who helps others recognize and connect with their own intuition, potential and purpose. She has been featured on Oprah and Friends with Dr. Mehmet Oz, George Noory’s Coast To Coast and many others.
Deborah King is a contemporary master healer and recognized expert in the health & wellness field. Deborah is featured regularly in broadcast, online, and print media, making frequent appearances on national TV, including CNN, Fox News, ABC, and NBC, and is a featured blogger for Psychology Today and the Huffington Post.
Transformational yoga teacher Psalm Isadora is known for a deep and fiery style of teaching with fierce compassion for the individual’s growth and connection to the Divine. She dives into the physical, mental and emotional layers with great faith in the students capacity for healing, transformation and empowerment.
We are especially thrilled to have the European phenomenon, Braco, making his first East Coast U.S. appearance. Braco (pronounced “Braht-zoh”) does “gazing sessions,” 5 to 8 minute group events in which he becomes a channel for positive energy that is then sent it to his audience with impressive results.
Two popular psychics also headline the expo—Michele Livingston and Joseph Tittel. Michele Livingston, author of Visions from Mary, has been a popular guest at previous expos, and we are thrilled to see her back. Rising young psychic Joseph Tittel has been packing in halls and special events and gathering a significant reputation for his abilities. Noted psychic James Van Praagh has said, “Rarely have I met a medium as in tune as Joseph Tittel. Not only does he give remarkable evidential details, but he brings with it an other worldly compassion I have never witnessed before.”
Also on hand is Carol Bowman, a pioneer in reincarnation studies and past life regression. Her workshop at the Mind Body Spirit Expo will explain how past life memories can emerge in childhood and influence our present personalities, and she’ll lead a group past-life regression session.
Many other interesting and profound subjects will be covered at the Expo, including Mayan Prophecies, Chi Energy Healing, the Healing Powers of Drums, the Wisdom of the Earth’s Essential Essences, Reiki and Magnified Healing. Thomas Jefferson University Hospital’s internationally respected Jefferson-Myrna Brind Center of Integrative Medicine will also have a presence at the Expo. A tasty and nutritious natural food court will be available and free yoga classes.
