Annual Earth-Spirit Expo returns to Lockport
The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 20 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 21, at the Holiday Inn, 515 S. Transit Road in Lockport.
This is the ninth year for the Light Bridges Magazine sponsored event, which first started in Lockport. Organizer Leesah Jackson said when the event first began it had 22 vendors and about 60 people in attendance. It was the first “holistic expo” in the region.
It was then expanded into Erie County and two shows a year. This is the first time in nine years the expo will return to its “roots” in Lockport.
“This show presents a variety of healers and artists all in one location,” said Jackson.
She said those curious about reflexology can come talk to a practitioner, those wanting to try Reiki can get a mini-treatment and see how it feel.
The expo will also feature a number of lectures and shopping.
Jackson said the drum circle is always a favorite among visitors, who come together and drum. No experience is required. The drum circle will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. Oct. 20.
Other lectures on Oct. 20 include dream interpretation and psychism by Bernice Golder from noon to 1 p.m.; eat you way out of pain — foods that heal, foods that harm by Dr. Tammy Bialck-Lehrer from 1 to 2 p.m.; making love by Camille Jarmusz from 2 to 3 p.m. and quantum sensory experiences by Shad Diamond from 3 to 4 p.m.
Lectures on Oct. 21 include cell salts for creating harmony in you body by Lisa Jackson from 11 a.m. to noon; reflexology for all ages by Michelle Clark from noon to 1 p.m.; the wonders of Reiki by Dawn Young from 1 to 2 p.m. and nine years and still running … by Larry Jackson from 2 to 3 p.m.
Vendors include the Niagara County Community College Massage Therapy Program, Salt Lamps Etc, Gifts of Gaia, Readings by Donna & Dan, Just feels Good Jewelry and Crystals, Donald W. Scott, LMT, Peak Leaf Tea, The Health Junction, Reiki by Dawn, Bernice Golden- International Psychic, Diamond Crystal Music, Inner Balance Chiropractic, Braymiller Builders of WNY, Natural Image Care, Reflexology by Michelle, Lockport Homeopathy, Port of Light Studio, Light Bridges Magazine and more.
Jackson said many of the vendors are offering mini-treatments, ranging in price from free to $30. Visitors can get an intuitive reading for those needing some insight into life, a massage, a facial or shop for unique holiday gifts.
“Just being around like-minded people feels great,” she said. “It gives you a chance to meet new friends and check out different modalities without spending a fortune, or driving all over the county. It’s a whole days worth of interesting activities for just $5. You can’t beat that”
Admission for the event is $5 per day and lectures are included in the admission price.
