Wellness Community Festival
A few months back I met a rather engaging passionate business woman by the name of Deb Shepherd. We talked about community, wellbeing and the Peace Day Festival she’s organizing later this year. I told her I thought Sydney's lower north shore needed a wellbeing festival, as there is emerging consciousness about healthy lifestyle and cleaning living here.
As it turns out Deb runs Wellness Community Festivals all around Sydney with her business partner Susie Wells and last year, their festival in Crows Nest attracted 550 people through the doors (clearly I missed out, as I was in new motherhood fog this time last year!)
So this year I’m joining them as the local ambassador for the festival, outreaching to local wellness professionals to curate an amazing spread of holistic health and wellbeing specialists, psychic and intuitive readings, crystals, eco-friendly products and hand crafted gifts, there will be workshops, informative speakers and performances.
What I was so drawn to about this festival and Deb and Susie’s approach is that not only is it a local, boutique festival, but the event is designed to support wellness practitioners as emerging entrepreneurs. Often folks in the wellness industry get into it because they are passionate about their modality, then they find they are all of a sudden, their own boss and have to deal with financials, marketing to find and keep clients. I can say from my experience this is a HUGE learning curve.
Deb and Susie are exciting women entrepreneurs with their heart in the right place; connecting and strengthening the wellness community wherever they go; bringing together small businesses and helping them grow their reach and flourish in a way that’s authentic.
So come along and check out the best of the lower north shore’s wellness community. I’ll spend most of the day at the Shambhala House of Yoga stall so come say hello, and if you feel like a stretch please join me for a 30min detox yoga session at 2pm, and/or check out my advanced vinyasa flow demonstration on the stage at 12:30pm.
