About Us

Early Roots

Healthy living entrepreneur Sharon Bruckman launched the first Natural Awakenings magazine in Naples, Florida in 1994 in response to a strong local holistic health community and thousands of like-minded readers eager to connect with each other. The publication became an immediate success. A second, Sarasota, edition soon followed.

Today, there are 91 editions of Natural Awakenings, printing more than 1,600,000 copies, distributed at more than 45,000 locations, and read by more than 4,000,000 people nationwide.
