Wisdom Session: Everyday Wellness: Small Steps, Big Changes
Sitting at our desks, using our phones, carrying stuff, walking, standing, sleeping – Could certain habits and patterns in the way we conduct ourselves in our day-to-day activities be doing our bodies more harm than good? As creatures of adaptation we could be tolerating a lot more stress than we feel the pain of. How do we recognize warning signs when our bodies start to feel ill and what can we do to get back on track or, better still, prevent it? Join chiropractic doctor Gary Tho who works with top athletes, as he enlightens us on how easy-to-do, small steps in our daily routines can lead to big changes in the proper care of our bodies for optimal health and functioning.
Types of Events
Speaker Nights are a great place to begin an inquiry on a life topic, through inspiring shares by ordinary people who lead extraordinary lives. Through their stories and journeys, get a glimpse into aspects about the topics we may not have explored. Sharing is candid, raw and real, reflecting values such as truth, respect, and wonder that fade as we grow older.
Wisdom Sessions are a great space to explore your thoughts and experiences on a life topic in-depth, and hear from others in a facilitated discussion. Led by Professional Certified Coach Julia Ng, there are dynamic models, concepts, coaching sequences and experiential activities designed to deepen our awareness and enrich our experience around the topic.
Firesides are intimate discussions held in a cafe, over a drink or meal—perfect for sharing your lingering thoughts and questions having attended the Wisdom Session and Speaker Night on a life topic. Our Question Bucket is ever ready to keep the conversation going, with questions to ponder on, deepen the discussion, and learn about life on a more conscious level.
