The Hudson Valley Holistic Market started in 2016 as a fusion event bringing artisans, readers, and healing practitioners together with affordable class opportunities. These Markets have been put together to give our vendors, readers, and practitioners an opportunity to bring their gifts and soul paths into our community and to create a sacred space where the community can come, seek, and receive healing of body, mind, and spirit. We will continue to accept vendors with love & gratitude until we are at
capacity. We have spent a considerable amount of time infusing the Hudson Valley Holistic Market with healing intention & the intention for all of our vendors to be abundant.
In order to stay true to our vision, we continue to jury all of our vendors for every event as well as check references on all of our readers and practitioners. We do not allow vendors whose products or company are destructive to our environment or to anyone's health, and we remain stringent in our screening of direct sales and multi-level marketing companies. All participants (and the companies they represent) are screened for products, services, knowledge, kindness (to customers, colleagues, and our planet), and energy.
We strive to offer 3-5 classes per event that are lovingly taught by our vendors/readers/practitioners. In the effort to keep all aspects of our events affordable for our attendees, admission to the events themselves are almost always free, and admission to the classes are "by donation" to the instructors. That means that we honor the teachers' time, materials, and preparedness, and we hope that the students who attend these classes recognize that there should be an energy exchange of some sort for the classes. We also don't turn anyone away.
The Hudson Valley Holistic Market evolves every year. In 2016, we ran every Sunday morning at the Overlook Drive-In Theatre in Arlington. We moved to the Ramada in Fishkill for the Holidays that year. In 2017, we kept the same format and venues. In 2018, we experimented with venues like the Best Western in Kingston, Locust Grove in Poughkeepsie, and finally the newly built Comfort Suites in Fishkill, which will be our consistent venue through 2019. We added a two day gem show to our event roster in 2017. "Healing ROCKS! Gem and Mineral Show" primarily showcases crystal, stone, and mineral vendors as well as crystal readers, crystal healing practitioners, and other vendors, readers, and practitioners who appeal the same customer audience.
