Being well

This week we are keeping dry and being well.

Healing is on the way and I have a lot of catching up to do. The Wellness 360 Fair is happening just in time this Saturday with 27 vendors ready to serve you at The Kinnet, just one of the many new businesses bringing new life to my old neighborhood.

When I left my central Say Fong Gaai address in 2007 for this quiet South Lantau fishing village, I often dreamed of creating a weekend haven for city dwellers and apparently I wasn't the only one. The secret is out and Green Queen recently shared their experience when discovering Sommer's Life Beach Retreat, your new local favorite -- no air miles required.

I am excited to see HK heartbeat members Lisa Christensen, Joanne Ooi, Hersha Chellaram, Jo-Soo Tang and Gabrielle Kirstein recognized by HK Tatler for their outstanding community contributions. No pressure ... but I urge you consider them or my former colleague, Kai-Yin Lo when you to cast your vote for the Women of Hope Awards.

The team at Ecozine invites you to take the pledge for Zero Waste Week next month and I invite you to consider the electronic effect when you sign up. Hong Kong has a number of reduce-reuse-recycle opportunities, although is there is plenty of room for growth in the market.

Local residents continue to organize earthquake relief fundraisers and we are all encouraged feel lucky we are here and to continue doing what we can for Nepal neighbors.

In addition to the fresh listings below on the directory, please give a warm welcome to Barry Sadleir -- our newest business member  offers healing and insights at Shakti Healing Circle on Saturdays.

Our community is growing by the minute and we have lots to be grateful for with an abundance of inspired health professionals offering a variety of services to get well and be well. To make it even easier, we are testing new member profiles and would love for you to help us help you connect members with members directly and stay in touch with the latest new and ancient wisdom available in the fast lane.

What is in your wellness plan?

Adopt-A-Temple - June 12

Fundraising Dinner and Talk with Laurence Brahm

Laurence Brahm, founder of the Himalayan Consensus Institute, is leading a restoration project to rebuild damaged buildings and temples in Durbar Square and the adjacent Royal Palace representing the spiritual identity of Nepal. These community gathering places provide a direct link to the cultural heritage and identity of Nepal's people. The revival and reconstruction of the temples will create employment for unemployed crafts artisans and benefit entire families, giving directly to the community a sense of re-empowerment. Join in protecting our world spiritual heritage. Tickets are HK$1,000 for the inspired fundraiser on Friday, June 12 at KEE Club (32 Wellington Street, Central) with networking from 7pm followed by the 7:30pm talk and dinner at 8pm.
