Happy Heart Health Month! As you can see, we’re big fans of the heart around here. This edition features articles related to living a heart-centered life, taking care of our heart health (even while at the dentist) and listening to our heart’s deepest desires.
What do you really want? Honestly? In “Heeding Your Heart’s Desires”, on page 21, you will be asked to look within and examine what makes your heart beat each day. How can you focus more on what you desire and get closer to living a truly joyous life? Read on to find out.
At the heart of Natural Awakenings since 1994 has been founder Sharon Bruckman. Without her desire to connect people with health living resources, you wouldn’t be reading this magazine today. Recently, she passed the torch to new CEO Kimberly Whittle, who is also CEO of KnoWEwell, which acquired Natural Awakenings Publishing Corporation in December 2022.
“We’re growing a movement as we share knowledge, celebrate healing success stories, provide access to evidence-based resources and create meaningful connections while helping today’s consumers, whole-health providers, mission-aligned nonprofits, businesses and advertisers prosper,” says Whittle. “Together, we’re addressing global, local and personal issues—the nexus for consumer consciousness, healing and hope.”
Learn more about the mission of Natural Awakenings, the merging with KnoWEwell and this new chapter, in our feature on page 22. Almost 30 years later, we are still going strong across the country, connecting communities to the most timely information related to living a healthy life on a healthy planet.
Thank you for joining us on this journey. We are looking forward to a bright, long future.
