South- West Wellness Festival 2018
The South West Wellness Expo of 2017 will be the wellness event of the year. To be held on Sunday the 28th October 2018 at the Busselton Precinct on Queen Street, the day will be comprised of health practitioner stalls, interactive workshops, TED-style talks by health professionals and community members, deliciously healthy food and entertainment for the kids.
The South West Wellness Festival is the love child of the Holistic Health Network Inc – a group of over 100 holistic health practitioners committed to providing patient-centred, holistic health care to their local community and has run over 3 years. The day comprises of health practitioner stalls, interactive workshops, TED-style talks by health professionals and community members, deliciously healthy food and entertainment for the kids.
This year the Holistic Health Practitioner Network Inc has decided to have a break from organising the South West Wellness Festival. We feel very proud of the Expos and Festivals we have hosted over the past 3 years, and so grateful for the positive response we have had from the community. As an organisation run by volunteers, it takes a huge amount of time and effort to create an event such as the SW Wellness Festival. This year, three of our committee members are birthing babies, so we felt it was important to honour their need to focus on nurturing themselves and their children.
Instead, our focus this year will be on building the foundations for The Paperbark Wellness Project. This project is the brain child of one of our committee members Genevieve Morrissey a counsellor with a passion for improving the mental and emotional wellbeing of our community through a heart-based approach. We will be discussing and brainstorming ideas at our next HHPN meeting on 6th June, organising another movie night with a panel discussion in July, and engaging the community to share their thoughts and inspirations on how we can all work together to achieve our goals.
We invite you all to follow our Paperbark Wellness Project Facebook page and contribute to the conversation there.
We do intend to host the SW Wellness Festival in 2020 so please continue following this page for announcements and updates.
