Green Living

It is time to make a difference. We can no longer use resources thoughtlessly - we can no longer live as though there is an endless supply of the raw materials that make our lifestyles possible. We must learn to live in harmony with nature and to minimize our impact upon our earth. Natural Awakenings is dedicated to making its readers aware, educated, and leading advocates of a global shift to green living.

Creative Expression

Each month the Natural Awakenings Calendar of Events lists more than 250 opportunities for meeting and networking with other Triangle residents with shared interests. These classes, seminars, services, workshops and workouts open doors to a wealth of new experiences, new friends and new meaning for the thousands who take advantage of these offerings.
