The Natural Awakenings Story Healthy living entrepreneur Sharon Bruckman launched the first Natural Awakenings magazine in Naples, Florida, in 1994 in response to a strong local holistic health community and thousands of like-minded people eager to connect with each other. The publication was an immediate success. A second, Sarasota edition soon followed. In 1999 John Voell stepped it up, bringing extensive franchise experience to bear in co-founding Natural Awakenings Publishing Corp. After establishing a third magazine in Fort Lauderdale, Natural Awakenings quickly spread up the Florida peninsula. Since then, Natural Awakenings has expanded to encompass more than 80 markets across the United States and Puerto Rico. Natural Awakenings is now enjoyed by more than 3.6 million readers. Finding a free copy is convenient via unsurpassed market penetration of more than 42,000 distribution points.
