This week we are exploring the options.
On Saturday, hundreds sloshed through their way through the rain to enjoy a day of indoor sunshine provided by local natural health professionals and businesses dedicated to keeping us well.
The trend is no longer a trend. People are making a commitment to move beyond surviving life in the fast lane and find out what it takes to keep well in our full-on city.
There are many roads to wellness and lots on offer to meet your fancy. I am particularly fond of chocolate therapy, along with gentle hugs from friends. Saturday was my first big day out since Earth Day and I am still feeling a little vulnerable. As I struggle with the challenge of going slow, I am making it my new mantra.
Whatever your starting point, whether you love food or fitness or flower power, there are no simply excuses for not taking better care.
We are determined to make it even easier for you. If you missed the The Wellness 360 Fair or didn’t have time to meet everyone, this week’s fresh listings below are dedicated to our members who participated on Saturday. We send a special shout-out to Jo Soo-Tang and Laura Paul for hosting a fabulous and fun event.
If you haven’t seen it, yet, our friends at Ecozine keep reminding us to take the pledge for Zero Waste Week next month. HK heartbeat has been invited to join as event partner and offer you fewer excuses for not attending the Global Summit on June 11. We are working out the details, so get in touch when you’re ready to get your green on and we’ll keep you posted.
Green was definitely trending at Luxarity 2.0 where our fashionable members converted second-hand designer labels into $350,000 cash for Mother’s Choice, PathFinders, Redress and HK Design Centre. Community is the theme as we continue sending love to Nepal.
When we keep well, we have a positive effect on our world. Taking care of ourselves provides fresh energy to help each other and make cleaner choices. When we feel healthy, we begin to see the connection between personal wellness and the state of our little blue planet. Everything is connected.
How are you keeping well?
Adopt-A-Temple – June 12 at KEE Club
Fundraising Dinner and Talk with Laurence Brahm
Laurence Brahm, founder of the Himalayan Consensus Institute, is leading a restoration project to rebuild damaged buildings and temples in Durbar Square and the adjacent Royal Palace representing the spiritual identity of Nepal. These community gathering places provide a direct link to the cultural heritage and identity of Nepal’s people. The revival and reconstruction of the temples will create employment for unemployed crafts artisans and benefit entire families, giving directly to the community a sense of re-empowerment. Join us in protecting our world spiritual heritage. Tickets are HK$1,000 for the fundraiser on Friday, June 12 at KEE Club (32 Wellington Street, Central, HK) with networking from 7pm followed by a 7:30pm talk and dinner at 8pm.
