Wellness Gala Expo Live and In Person
The Wellness Gala Expo—Balance Your Life, will be held in person from 12:30 to 6:30 p.m., November 14, at Birchwood Manor, in Whippany. Experts in the fields of health, beauty and wellness will provide mini-sessions, workshops and demonstrations.
Guest speakers will discuss massage, anti-aging, medicine, nutrition, acupuncture, chiropractic, skin care, energy medicine, art and jewelry, mind-body stress, management and aromatherapy, plus there will be intuitive counselors, unique vendors, refreshments, live music and a silent auction. The mission is to create awareness, educate and promote the benefits and effectiveness of holistic health and integrative healing modalities
Event host and founder Debbie Peterson, says, “Since 2008, we have produced over 500 Wellness Gala events nationwide. These include our own Wellness Galas, corporate events, fundraisers, spa and beauty, and grand openings. We have also produced events in hospitals, schools and department stores, helping to educate and create awareness to all the benefits of holistic and integrative medicine.”
A graduate of Old Dominion University with a degree in marketing, Peterson was a successful sales executive for 15 years before branching out on her own. She shares, “I was a marketing professional working for Russ Berrie & Co., Inc. in outside sales for 15 years when quite unexpectedly, my oldest son started to display unusual behavior. From that moment on, my life was completely changed.”
Her son was diagnosed with severe Tourette’s Syndrome. “I exhausted all traditional medical treatments available, yet his symptoms worsened and his prognosis was bleak. The mainstream medical community states that there is no cure for this syndrome and that over time, symptoms can worsen. Even though I was completely unaware of holistic healing techniques, I was so desperate to help my son that I turned to integrative healing practices as a last resort,” says Peterson.
Dr. Robert Kandarjian, an energy healer, completely healed her son in conjunction with a Columbia University neurologist, medication and other therapies. His philosophy is to work with the parents first to begin a child’s healing process. It has been more than 16 years since her son has displayed any symptoms and has not been treated since.
Peterson states, “The idea to create a Wellness Gala event grew from my realization that integrative healing modalities can work miracles. My goal is to inform people everywhere that these modalities are legitimate options that can help any type of physical, emotional, mental or spiritual issues or concerns. I wanted it be different from anything I had ever seen or attended before.”
The Wellness Gala Balance Your Life event has established itself as a unique event that allows attendees to experience the special gifts of a select group of experts in the fields of health, beauty and wellness. A portion of the proceeds from each Wellness Gala event are donated to selected local charities within the area the event is being held.
Keynote speaker Anthony Mrocka (anthonymrocka.com) is a renowned intuitive medium. He believes that everyone has an intuitive sense, but of varying levels. Mrocka is more sensitive—able to connect his energy vibrations with higher energy forms from other dimensions and stream information into his consciousness.
Traumatic early childhood experiences taught him to block part of his memory to deal with pain and suffering. In search of approval and acceptance, he fell into a vicious cycle of addiction, rehabilitation and relapse. It was during one of his lowest points that he began to pray to God and surrender his life a higher spirit. He meditated and prayed to Mother Mary.
He began to hear, see and feel things that were not of this world and tried to control or shut them out. Serendipitously, he encountered mentors and teachers that guided and honed his natural ability to connect and receive messages.
Mrocka uses his psychic mediumship with evidence by establishing a connection and showing that energies from other dimension are present around us. Regular mediation and breathing exercises have helped him to channel his spiritual talents to new levels.
Keynote Speaker Concetta Bertoldi is a medium and New York Times bestselling author. She was interviewed and selected to attend the Edgar Cayce Institute, in Virginia. She shares, “It was a big help, and later Ginger Grancagnolo helped me to believe in forgiveness. She helped to be more spiritual and believe in God and build a bridge between this world and the spiritual world.”
Her husband started to believe after experiencing some very prescient events, and Bertoldi has been in public life helping people to get messages from other side for about 30 years. She has been sought out by royals, scientists and politicians from around the globe, as well as regular people living in the New Jersey suburbs.
Bertoldi believes in everyone making their own choices, but wants to help everyone to heal and get closure though messages from their loved ones. Her books are is about having faith and belief to attain peace and spirituality. “From time to time, certain individuals are born with extraordinary abilities—they are able to do, see and hear things most people cannot. I am one of those people,” says Bertoldi. “I share heartfelt messages from the other side that can provide comfort and insight. She will conduct a book signing of I Kissed A Ghost from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
