The original natural network
HK heartbeat was born on 21 October 2001 as a simple text email from Kinzie in response to requests from friends and colleagues looking for things like yoga and meditation and spelt. The result, a few months later, was the birth of a idea to feed a growing appetite for natural options. We started by sharing fresh content and local connections by email every week with our small but active and influential community and the Natural Hong Kong Directory was launched in 2003.
The network has grown steadily and quietly, connecting people who meet in the real world. Today, the HK heartbeat community is a dynamic network and home to thousands of individuals and organizations making a difference.
In addition to staying in touch and providing regular member updates, the business:
+ Promotes local professionals, companies and volunteer organizations
+ Encourages personal growth, responsible social development and active public engagement
+ Supports positive action by connecting members to encourage sharing, collaboration and cooperation
+ Shares member events, including annual gatherings, ongoing programs and special celebrations
+ Curates and distributes information via the website, social media channels and community partnerships
+ Produces and publishes a range of publications to raise awareness and spark conscious everyday choices
