In response to a strong local holistic health community’s eagerness to explore myriad avenues for health and wellness, healthy living entrepreneur Sharon Bruckman launched the initial Natural Awakenings Magazine in Naples, Florida in 1994. Natural Awakenings New Haven/Middlesex Counties was developed in 2006. It is one of nearly 50 editions (with more added each year) offering cutting-edge information as a roadmap to a healthier, more vibrant life for millions of readers.

Along with being a prime resource for local news, events, tips and articles from area health experts, we also include national and international features. Among those presented have been internationally recognized leaders in healthy living, such as Dr. Andrew Weil, Rodney Yee, Dr. Christiane Northrup, Dr. Wayne Dyer and many more. Each edition offers fresh perspectives around a timely theme sure to pique your interest.

The Natural Awakenings Central-Eastern Connecticut edition is committed to social responsibility and sustainability in our business practices. We print on recycled paper and use soy-based ink. Additionally, believing creative expression is a vital aspect of an abundant existence, our cover always features colorful art or photographs. Inside you will find meaningful articles touching on all aspects of body, mind and spirit.
