SUN CITY CENTER – Intuitives, angel readers, psychics and mediums will descend on the community Saturday for the annual Metaphysical Society Expo. The daylong event dedicated to the mystical, supernatural, unknown and unseen will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Community Hall, 1910 S. Pebble Beach Blvd. Admission is free.

It promises to be an enlightening and engaging experience, say organizers. You don’t have to be a believer to take something away.

“I always tell people that metaphysics is the study of possibilities,” said Vicky Sand, president of the Sun City Center Metaphysical Society. “We encourage people to come with an open mind and leave with whatever resonates with them.”

Everyone’s welcome.

“Whether you believe or don’t believe in certain metaphysical concepts, taking a look gets you thinking and challenging the ideas you’ve always taken for granted,” said Linda Bleser, a vendor and three-year member of the Metaphysical Society. “Even if you’re not into having a reading or handwriting analysis, you’ll find have of beautiful jewelry, books and lots of gifts for people of all interests.”

“Its about bringing love, light and awareness to the world,” Sand said.

Forty-three vendors will be on hand this year. These will include authors, psychics and Tarot Card readers; Reiki, reflexology and yoga practitioners; numerology, handwriting and astrology experts; and sellers of crystals, Himalayan salt lamps, essential oils, Native American crafts, handmade drums and other gift items.

Six hourly speakers will discuss topics ranging from soul trauma healing; good health and how to keep it; your physic potential to sound healing; achieving abundance in your life; and the ancient Chinese medical practice of acupuncture.

Visitors may purchase tickets for $1, $5 and $10 to buy merchandise or services, with proceeds going to the 117-member society, which in turn donates funds to nonprofit groups like Bullet Free Sky, Elmira’s Sanctuary and the YMCA.

The Metaphysical Society Expo, originally called the Whole Life Expo, was founded in 2010 by Kings Point resident Ed Leary, whose goal was to bring together like-minded people in the community to build greater consciousness.

That’s what brought Sand and her husband, Dewayne, to Sun City Center.

“We were so impressed with the expo and the fact that it was here, we decided to buy a house that same year.”
