WELCOME to Wholistic Wellness Communities,
Home of 2019 Spiritual Symposium and Expo
The Wholistic Wellness Communities team is so excited to bring you our first ever Spiritual Symposium & Expo this spring. We invite you to join us on Sunday, April 14th at the Burlington Holiday Inn & Conference Centre for an amazing day of Community, Meditation, Live Music, Speakers, Dozens of Exhibitors & more!
This one-day event features two exciting components (Symposium & Expo) and is an exceptional and fun way for you to meet with many like minded souls. It is also a fantastic way to shop, experience, and connect with everything you love about spirituality, health and wellness. This is such a great day as everything is under one roof!
Wholistic Wellness Communities have been running Spiritual/Wellness expos since 2012 and to celebrate our 7th year in the Burlington community, we are getting back to our roots by hosting a gathering in the morning to start off what is sure to be a beautiful day. Our Symposium will take place from 10-1pm (more details below), with the Expo beginning at 1pm and continuing until 6pm.
Symposium: The morning gathering will include a mix of Community Meditation, Opening Sacred Space (4 Directions), Qi Gong, 4 Inspiring Speakers, Live Music, South African Dancers (Izimba Arts) and more!
Expo: Get ready to enjoy FREE admission into our afternoon Expo. This will include access to our FREE workshop series, our Non-Profit/Charity Village as well as the opportunity to explore over 50 unique exhibitors!
Angel Network: We will also continue to run our Angel Network which has raised over $40,000.00 to local charities and individuals who have needed the Angel Community behind them.
For those of you that are interested in services offered by practitioners, you will have the opportunity to receive services much more readily as there will no longer be line ups to get a reading of any kind, Reiki session, Card Readings, Thai Massage, Channeling, Mediumship, Ayurvedic Treatments and so much more!
You can simply walk up to any practitioner and have your service provided either immediately, or when your time is scheduled. (please note, practitioners may charge a small fee for service)
We love offering these community events in the Spring to bring everyone the Holistic Community out to connect and re-connect together, as well as in the fall just before everyone breaks for the holiday season.
