Natural Awakenings

In 1994 the first Natural Awakenings magazine was established in Naples, Florida in response to the local holistic health community’s need for an effective way to share information and connect with people searching for alternative therapies. Success of the original Naples/Fort Myers edition was immediate. It didn’t take long for many more community editions to take hold.

Today there are more than 30 editions of Natural Awakenings throughout the United States and Puerto Rico and growing strong.

In April 2002, Kris Urquhart with the help of her sister Laurie Davey published the first issue of our Brevard/Indian River edition of Natural Awakenings. As a grassroots free publication it quickly became a favorite resource for the community that is currently serving over 35,000+ readers each month.

Natural Awakenings Magazine is a healthy living publication dedicated to providing insights and information to improve the quality of life physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In each issue readers find cutting-edge information on natural health, nutrition, fitness, personal growth, green living, creative expression and the products and services that support a healthy lifestyle. Each issue features articles by national authors as well as from local leaders in the natural health field. Additionally, you’ll find news and events that are happening in our community – and around the globe.

“This magazine works magic each and every month,” says Kris, “I continue to enjoy stories of connections that have been made as a result of someone picking up a copy of Natural Awakenings.”

Natural Awakenings can be found in over 500 local businesses, libraries, and cafes throughout Brevard and Indian River counties. Bringing together people who are seeking help, assistance, workshops, or just tips and knowledge with those that can provide it is the real mission of Natural Awakenings magazine.

Kris shares, “Our staff, participants, readers, writers and advertisers have become like family, it is something everyone can feel a part of.”
