Natural Awakenings Central-Eastern Connecticut

Connections & Community

“Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie
As our April edition focuses on eco-travel—whether far away or close by, by water or by land—we at Natural Awakenings have our own new adventure starting this month. Just as I celebrate my first year as the publisher and owner of the New Haven/Middlesex Counties edition, we are already expanding into familiar and new Connecticut counties starting with this first Central and Eastern Connecticut edition! The magazine returns to Hartford County as well as expands its reach to three new counties: New London, Tolland and Windham. My past experiences as an editor, writer, business owner and reflexologist have enabled me to peacefully, energetically and meaningfully be there today for our amazing readers and business owners. With you, our present is helping to create an amazing vision for tomorrow of great content, connections and community. I am truly grateful.

Our content continues to inspire change and curiosity in all of us. A local article by Christina Bafumo focuses on ways to explore the waterways of the United States while another article offers advice for sustainable travel. In our Eco-Tip section, see what you can check off on your “doing better” checklist with your foods and goods, water use, energy use, toxins, and transportation. Want to get messy on vacation? Explore agritourism options with the Farm Vacations article. We also cover best farming practices, connecting to the earth, single-use plastics and preparing for outdoor treks. For our Healthy Kids section, we look at nurturing healthy minds through travel.

Due to continued demand, we decided to extend our free ad size upgrade campaign for new advertisers by another month. Be a part of the expanded magazine reaching thousands of readers and potential clients in six counties. Reach out before April 15th (2024) to secure this great deal.

Follow us on Facebook (@NANewHaven) and Instagram (@NaturalAwakeningsNewHaven) to keep up to date with articles, happenings and more.

Continue to inspire yourselves as we welcome spring’s arrival and the promise of outdoor exploration and fun!
