An evening to inspire Health * Harmony * Happiness
Friday 4th March 2016
For our second Talk About Town our subject, “A Better You”, was all about wellness. Our panel – see below – are specialists in naturopathy, essential oils, haircare and yoga fitness, but this is of course a huge subject and we sought contributions from all present.
Wellness is generally used to mean a healthy balance of the mind, body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. It can be seen as a luxury pursuit for the more affluent societies, because it involves managing the body state after the basic needs of food, shelter and basic medical care have already been met. However, it also deals with the adverse side-effects of living in those same societies, such as over-eating, lack of exercise and exposure to unhealthy environments.
The event was held at the Cinema Cristallo in Dolceacqua and the evening started with a selection of antipasti misti and drinks provided by our generous sponsors.
The entrance fee of €10 included a raffle ticket and 6 prizes were donated by our speakers:
- 1. Consultation or treatment with Elizabeth Bright
2. 3 x 5 ml Essential Oils from Angela Collings
3. 2 x Yoga Tickets at the Monte Carlo Bay with Anette Shine
4. Hair treatment and styling with Bio Hair for 3 lucky people
The discussion and demonstrations were followed by the film ‘The Hundred-Foot Journey‘, starring Helen Mirren .
