Meet our Founder - Sharon Bruckman
Healthy living entrepreneur Sharon Bruckman established Natural Awakenings magazine in 1994 in Naples, Florida in response to her local holistic health community's need for an effective way to share information and connect with people searching for alternative therapies. Two years later, an avid reader convinced her to launch a second edition in Sarasota, Florida. Its destiny was to become the prototype for an unprecedented franchise network (formed in 1999) of like-minded people who value what this magazine brings to their community. Today, franchise owners publish more than 80 local editions, with new magazines added each year. In each market 10,000s of free copies are circulated at hundreds of public distribution points.
"The wellness revolution I saw emerging years ago is now in full swing," says Bruckman. "It's propelled by the kind of people who read our magazines and website. Our job is to keep our finger on the pulse of cutting-edge advances and keep readers apprised of the best healthy-life choices available. We love what we do. We love to spread light. Our delight is in awakening one community at a time...naturally." says Bruckman.

We present special features, interviews with national figures, and guest columns right along with local news briefs, stories, resource directories and a community calendar.
