Harlem Holistic Wellness Week 2017
By: William A Rogers
There are many reasons for the tremendous growth in the desire by many to address their health by using natural holistic wellness strategies. Many believe that it is due to the growth of the baby boomers quest for longevity; others see it as being a way to address the concern about the long term negative effects of manmade drugs. I agree with the popular thought that a greater number of people are now experiencing the quality of life benefits in learning to balance mind, body and spirit.
Harlem Holistic Wellness Week 2017 (Saturday April 29th to Saturday May 6th ) is a vehicle to bring those who would like to explore natural holistic ways to improve the quality of their lives with the practitioners, programs and businesses that offer natural holistic wellness options. Thousands of people in over 70 countries celebrate the collective mind of wellness and peace annually on the last Saturday in April during world Tai Chi and Qigong Day (www.worldtaichiday.org).
The 10th annual Harlem World Tai Chi and Qigong Day celebration is traditionally the first event of Harlem Holistic Wellness Week this year on Saturday April 29th. The event will start at 10am to coincide with tens of thousands of people throughout the world who will also start energy movement exercises at the same time; with a collective mind focused on world peace. The opening event will take place in Saint Nicholas Park located at 135th Street and Saint Nicholas Avenue.
Tai Chi, Qigong and energy treatment masters will give free demonstrations and treatments again this year. If you are interested in learning about energy training programs, this event will provide a wonderful opportunity to speak to energy movement and treatment masters from Harlem and the Tri State area. If you would like more information about this event contact Jana Cunningham at 718 314-0882 email firstname.lastname@example.org or the Ki Energy Center at 646 329-6727
The theme of this year’s wellness week is “Discovering Natural Wellness Options for Women”. The Thursday April 27th issue of Harlem Community News will carry a full schedule of Harlem Wellness Week events and locations. The Harlem Ki Energy Center will have a number of workshops during the week that will focus on holistic wellness strategies for women.
The Now We No (www.nowweno.net) feminine hygiene health awareness campaign will be introduced to the Harlem community during this year’s wellness week. Nspire Network (www.nspirenetwork.com) is the wellness company that developed the campaign to educate females about the potential dangers of leading sanitary napkins and to introduce a safe, natural and comfortable option “Cherish Premium Sanitary Napkins”.
I will also introduce a sub-division of Urbanology Systems during wellness week the name of the company is the “Onuwon Wellness Group”. In a recent Urbanology article “The Marketing of Wellness” (see www.theartofwarogers.info) I reviewed the growth of the wellness business into a trillion dollar industry.
The Onuwon Wellness Group will provide strategic marketing opportunities for wellness businesses, practitioners, organizations and their products; by producing and sponsoring events such as “Harlem Holistic Wellness Week”.
