Holistic World brings the New Age to Toronto

Whether you're interested in paraben-free cosmetics or want to hypnotize yourself free of that pesky ciggie addiction, this weekend's Holistic World Expo has something for the hippie in all of us. Of course, in 2007, the New Age is fairly mainstream--hence yoga demonstrations, lectures on alternative approaches to osteoporosis and breast cancer, booths by the purveyors of Tom's of Maine and Liberte yogurt, and information on setting up your very own composting worms.

This year's keynote speaker is James Redfield, author of the very popular The Celestine Prophecy, holding forth on his theories on the evolution of human consciousness. There will also be a showing of the movie The Secret, the "law of attraction" philosophy that's currently all the rage, thanks to Oprah.

Other sessions include a breakdown on holistic dentistry, managing chronic pain, all about the healing power of horses and, of course, insight into "The Wisdom of the Penis." In other words, a little something for everyone.

The 2007 Holistic World Expo is on this weekend at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
