About Natural Awakenings
In 1994, healthy living entrepreneur Sharon Bruckman saw a need in her community for a better way to connect people seeking reliable information about natural health and green living with those qualified to provide helpful products and services. This desire spurred the birth of the first Natural Awakeningsmagazine in January, 1994, serving Naples and Fort Myers, Florida. Two years later, her team launched a second edition in Sarasota, Florida, that became a franchise prototype. In 1999, Bruckman formed the Natural Awakenings Publishing Corporation to support the growing demand for the magazine in other communities.
With more than 1.3 million total monthly copies published, Natural Awakeningsis one of the most widely read natural living magazines in North America. Magazines are published in cities as diverse as Miami, New York, Phoenix, Portland and San Juan, Puerto Rico. In every community where we publish, thousands of loyal readers pick up their free monthly copy at hundreds of convenient public distribution points. The New Mexico edition was founded in 2006 and reaches 35,000 readers through the print edition in 475 locations and 7,000 readers check out the magazine digitally.
Natural Awakenings offers a synergy that other national publications in our field can’t match, seamlessly integrating both local and national topics, expertise and resources. Our staff enjoys a long track record of exploring the cutting edge of the natural health and green living movements with our readers. We present original features, interviews with national figures and contributions by guest experts, along with local and national news briefs, resource directories and a local community calendar. Each month brings fresh perspective, centered on a timely theme that is sure to pique readers’ interest.
We invite you to pick up a free copy of the New Mexico edition at a nearby distribution location. You will find them in health food stores, health and wellness facilities, education and recreation centers, yoga studios, integrative and complementary practitioners’ offices and wherever free publications are generally available. Let us know if you would like copies placed at your business.
We welcome your feedback and participation. Please contact us to share your thoughts and suggestions.
