Blue Star Holistic Expo will be held at the Holiday Inn, Cumberland, MD November 3, 2012.
Featured speaker is Robert Harding, author of Blue Star, The True Story of One Man's Awakening and Vision Quest.
Robert Harding, an ordinary salesman leading an ordinary life, just doesn't fit in. Not bonding with his peers, and with a constant, yet sublime feeling that something more than his routine life awaits him, he plods along like so many others.
He had a vision of blessed Mary, looking like The Lady in Clearwater, FL, that mysteriously appeared on the side of a building. This vision signals the beginning of a complete life makeover for the author. Inexplicably drawn to a quest to the U.S., He traveled from London to the home of the Hopi Indians. Along the way, he encountered fascinating people - veritable guideposts - and spiritual signs that help him in his vision quest.
