This past week, I was fortunate enough to be part of the Global Wellness Summit held at The Breakers hotel in Palm Beach. Once again, I came away with vast amount of new data, re-connected with my besties, and became energized about making a difference in our world.
This group of now 600+ people, is connected by a mission to make the world a better place through their work in the medical, spa, hospitality, real estate…and finally, yes finally… fashion industries. Whilst delivering his presentation, the world-renowned Dr. Andrew Weil used the “F” word: FASHION. Dr. Weil expressed his views that fashion is a powerful driver of behavior. I went into my happy dance because BuDhaGirl is the first fashion company truly involved in the Summit.
I was thrilled to hear about the challenges and future of our world from Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Dr. Andrew Weil, Dr. Richard Carmona, Dr. Michael Roziens, Dr. Pelletier, Dr. Elisa Eppel, and many, many more.
I also met the Ice Man, Wim Hof…boy what an experience that was! He changed my life. At first I was curious about this guy who looked like he escaped from Margaritaville and whose claim to fame has been breaking records of endurance. This man climbs Everest in shorts, and swims under the ice in Antartica. Let me tell you, it's not all hype, he IS the real deal.
One of my favorite unexpected surprises was spending a little time with Agapi Stasinopoulous, she is a beautiful woman inside and out. She shared with me her mediations, really extraordinary, and generously she has agreed for us to share them with you on our website…stay tuned.
More on the Summit to come next week!
