Natural Awakenings Charlotte

The SOUL Expo Brings Charlotte Wellness Community Together

The first annual The SOUL Expo will be held at the Central Piedmont Community College’s Harris Conference Center from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on April 30. The goal of the event is to reunite the wellness community after two years of COVID-19 isolation, inspire positive change and bring awareness to exciting alternatives to traditional education, health and business practices. 

The landscape has changed in recent years and many people are in search of alternatives to their job, their child’s education, their healthcare options, and the products they buy. The expo will inform on alternatives that already exist and encourage people to develop their own businesses around their passion. 

“The goal of The SOUL Expo is to not only expose people to new healing modalities and information, but also to let them know that there is a community of like-minded souls they can connect with,” says Katie Sutton, co-founder of the event along with husband Josh Vogt and colleague Holly Whitman. 

An intuitive channel, vibrational healer, energy medicine teacher, and founder of Zen Within Academy, an online and in person community to help guide people on their personal path to wholeness and fulfillment, Sutton adds, “It’s time that we begin healing the collective trauma that we have experienced over the last two years and The SOUL Expo is a part of that.” 

Presenters will include Dr. Cammy Benton who is working with the nonprofit organization, Compass Integrative Health, to launch an integrative health center/hospital, LitPro, a litigation and counseling service taking on Big Pharma, and educators that have created alternative schools and programs to the traditional public education system and more. 

Twelve workshops and 40-plus vendors will be featured including 30-plus healers and readers practicing reiki, tarot, astrology, aura, ancestral eye readings, mediumship, massage and bodywork healing, and sound therapy. Healing sessions can be booked in advance or as walk-ins. 

The SOUL Expo will follow the required COVID-19 safety protocols of Mecklenburg County and adhering to the guidelines of the college. 

Tickets: $35/in advance, $45/at the door. Location: 3216 CPCC Harris Campus Dr. For more information, follow the SOUL Expo on Facebook and Instagram, email [email protected] or visit
