Tulsa Pop Culture Expo Coming Nov. 2-3

This year’s Tulsa Pop Culture Expo will be loaded with famous celebrities and will be held on Nov. 2 and 3 at the vacated Sears location at Woodland Hills Mall.   The hours of operation will be Saturday, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.  As part of its ongoing mission, on Friday, Nov. 1, celebrity guests who are scheduled to appear at Tulsa Pop Culture Expo will make appearances at local schools, The Children’s Hospital and other organization within the community.
Tulsa Pop Kids and OKPop are excited to announce Lindsay Wagner will be among the celebrities at Tulsa Pop Culture Expo (TPCE) 2019.  Wagner is best known for her role as The Bionic Woman. In addition to her talent as an actor, she has long been acknowledged as one of the top leading spokespersons in the United States, a role she took very seriously with regard to the impact it would have on the public, which in turn reinforced her position as a respected voice in the community. She was given a Genii Award as “Performer of the Year” in 1985. Wagner has co-authored a bestselling vegetarian cookbook, “The High Road to Health” (1990) and “Lindsay Wagner’s New Beauty: The Acupressure Facelift” (1986). She has recently released a meditation CD, “Open to Oneness.”
Off-screen, Wagner is passionate about the study and sharing of holistic healing modalities, integrating mind, body and spirit. For 25 years, she has been the Honorary Chair of ICAN (Inter-Agency Council on Child Abuse and Neglect). She has also been heavily involved in human rights, domestic violence, animal welfare and the environment. From 2003-2006, in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Wagner co-facilitated a counseling group for convicted batterers and their families. Her work utilized a range of psychological and spiritual techniques.
For the public, Wagner facilitates experiential “Quiet the Mind and Open the Heart” workshops and retreats. These programs are designed to help overcome our own personal challenges, while accessing the peace and joy that is naturally within us. Lindsay offers these programs to the public as well as special interest groups as a way of sharing, that which has greatly impacted her life.
