Both full payment and completed application with photo are required in order to be considered complete.
 

TO APPLY: Please read the below and then scroll to the BOTTOM of this page for the form!
 

New readers must either have a recommendation from someone we know and trust, or may be asked to try out. 
Thanks and namaste! We look forward to seeing you and serving you! 

QUESTIONS/PROBLEMS: readers@enlightenedsoulexpo.com or call/text Christina DePugh at 734-968-9723.

 

ABOUT THIS APPLICATION: (some things may appear different if registering on your phone; COMPUTER recommended)

  • You'll need to submit a maximum 100-word description (approx. 600 characters) for the website and Reader Handout.

  • We'll want a digital headshot of you and you can upload it at the link on this page.

  • When done with the application, hit the "Submit Application" button. After that, the page where you filled out the form should be blank.

  • After hitting the "Submit Application" button, IF the page is still there and doesn't go to the Paypal page, then there is likely an error in your application. You may see an error message at the bottom that says "Please fill in required fields" if you missed a required question, or you may not if it's a different problem. Either way, scroll back up the form to find a required question that was not filled out, or not filled out properly. (OFTEN it is because you have gone over the 600-character limit in your description.) Answer or fix, and then submit again.

 

PAYMENT:

  • Once you successfully fill out and submit the form, you'll be automatically taken to a Paypal page. Your total registration amount will be given there. We no longer accept checks for payment.

  • No Paypal account is needed to pay at Paypal; at the bottom of the Paypal box, you may select “Pay with a debit or credit card” instead of using a Paypal account.

  • If you experience problems paying online, please contact Christina to pay with credit or debit card over the phone: 734-968-9723. REMINDER: Only applications with payment are considered complete.

  • If you have paid online at Paypal after submitting the application, you'll receive an email confirmation message. IF YOU DON'T PAY ONLINE, YOU WILL NOT get an automatic confirmation email; please contact Christina about payment and wait for us to send a confirmation email manually that your application was received.

 

 

WHAT'S NEW/REMINDERS:​​​

  • NEW: Sunday hours are extended to 6:00 PM! (Tables must remain open until closing time or risk not being invited back.)

  • NO REFUNDS unless your application is denied.

  • PROMOTION: We list all bodyworkers on our website, on a Facebook post, and on a handout given to attendees at the Expo. 

  • NEW! SPONSORSHIP: We now offer Sponsorship Opportunities that can increase the visibility of your business at the Expo! There are various levels of perks, depending upon the monetary donation, from being included on the At-a-Glance handout to exclusive sponsorship of a physical area of the Expo. Please see the PDF link below to download the Sponsorship document for more information. 

  • We are only accepting applications for both days of the Expo. 

  • We are restricting readings in the Vendor Area (Commons and Hallways). There will be a few exceptions for people who offer unusual services (e.g. intuitive paintings) that cannot conform to the time limit of the Reader Rooms.

  • We take reading appointments and payments centrally for the Reader Room readers, and pay readers via check at the end of the show on Sunday (minus a 3% fee for handling & credit card processing).

  • There will be up to 15 readers in the 20-minute Reader Room and up to 15 readers in the 30-minute Reader Area. NEW: The 30-minute readers will be in their own secluded area along the back wall of the Commons. The 20-minute readers will be located in the room they have been in before.

  • VOLUNTEER PRIZE DONATION: We're asking everyone to donate a gift certificate to reward our volunteers. Gift certificates should be for full free offers — no coupons or discounts. ALL donations should be brought to us at the Volunteer Office ON SATURDAY or given to the Vendor Coordinator or Vendor Assistant who make the rounds of the booths, so that we can allocate the right amount of certificates to cover our volunteers each day. PLEASE DO NOT GIVE YOUR DONATION DIRECTLY TO VOLUNTEERS unless these are "extra" donations, to reward a volunteer who has helped you, separate from the donation you give to the Volunteer Office. We will have blank certificates at the Expo for you to fill out, or feel free to bring your own.  Thank you for helping to support our hard-working volunteers!

  • Please bring EXTRA business cards for the Reader Promotion Table!!! It will be prominently placed adjacent to the Reading Appointment Tables, so that clients have access to reader information even if they can't book appointments with everyone. Please be mindful that there may be up to 30 readers that will be displayed on the promotion table, so please do not bring multiple flyers with brochures and business cards that take up a larger amount of space or they may be removed. 

  • Please no candles, incense, sprays, or anything scented — to respect those who have allergies or sensitivities. WHEN IN DOUBT, please ask permission from Christina DePugh, Reader Coordinator and Expo Co-Director.

  • For those who wish to stay overnight in Ann Arbor, blocks of hotel rooms will be arranged for Expo weekend.
