Local author to deliver keynote at next Heights Holistic Fair
Warren Grossman, a well-known author and speaker who lives in Shaker Heights, will present a talk titled "Healing is Natural" at the upcoming Heights Holistic Fair.
The fair, the third in a series this year, will be held Oct. 12 and 13 at the Open Office Community Space, located in the former Coventry School building at 2843 Washington Blvd. in Cleveland Heights. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.
Grossman, author of To Be Healed by the Earth and Earth/Heart, will discuss tools found in nature for healthier, happier living. He will also lead an interactive workshop, "Strong, Pain-Free Feet," sharing methods for relieving foot pain and building a strong foundation to support the body.
A gentle yoga class will follow the workshop, helping people at all levels of ability—including beginners —to achieve proper alignment in their poses. The two-day fair will feature other speakers, as well.
The holistic fair, co-organized by Cleveland Heights resident Judith Eugene and Pat Uhr of Lakewood, will offer products, services and information on healthy-living options for all ages. Vendors will have products for sale and will provide sample healing treatments. Psychic mediums will be on hand to give personal readings, for a small fee.
Musicians will perform, and children's activities will include all-ages drum circles, child-oriented yoga classes, and a tambourine-making project. An all-ages play area will feature toys from Big Fun. Eugene said, “We want to reach out to the community to provide information on healthy living for all ages—kids, parents and grandparents—and have a lot of fun in the process."
Tommy's Restaurant will donate food for sale at the fair. All proceeds from food sales are donated to the Heights Libraries. The fair is sponsored by FutureHeights, the local nonprofit that publishes the Heights Observer, and promotes a vibrant and sustainable future for Cleveland Heights and University Heights.
Admission is $5 per day and includes all activities and speakers. Admission is free for children under 12.
The Heights Holistic Fair is presented jointly by Eugene’s Loving Hands Yoga and Reiki, and Uhr’s Harmonic Journeys. For a schedule of activities and speakers visit www.holisticfairsohio.com or call Judith Eugene at 216-408-5578.
