Ferment-Me-Not: How to Use Probiotic-Rich Foods to Grow Your Gut Garden and Heal Your Body
Limited Capacity seats available

There’s been a wealth of data in the last decade about the role the microbiome plays in warding off sickness, losing weight and maintaining good mental health. In the last several years, the probiotics market has sky-rocketed into a 30-billion-dollar global industry. These pills promise to deliver billions of organisms to the bed of your gut garden, along with any number of health benefits from weight loss to reduced risk of heart disease. But do they actually work? Join gluten-free chef and author of The Wellness Project: How I Learned To Do Right By My Body Without Giving Up My Life, Phoebe Lapine, as she discusses her journey of healing her autoimmune disease through feeding her gut. Using her experience in the kitchen and demonstrating how to make easy fermented foods at home, Phoebe will share recipes and strategies for incorporating more fermented foods into your diet, why they’re so much more powerful than a pill and how they’ll make your life that much more delicious.

Like… you couldn’t possibly quiet your mind long enough to gain any benefit or you think you need to be of some spiritual enlightenment to even try? In this breakout session with Meditation Guide, Vanessa Feils, you will be led through a brief teaching, to better understand the philosophy of how truly connecting with yourself through meditation unravels the magic that already lives inside of you.

The intention of the session is to activate you into your true power, leaving you not only with your own personal tools, but a deep confidence that you can continue to advance your practice on your own.

Why Branding Yourself is the Only Way to Stand Out in the Wellness Industry
Limited Capacity full
Adding this to your schedule will put you on the waitlist.

When you step into entrepreneurship, it's easy to get caught in the comparison trap, believing that in order to be successful you have to follow in someone else's footsteps. The truth is, your success and impact ultimately comes down to being a trailblazer—more specifically, being the REAL YOU. It's in leading with unbridled authenticity that you become magnetic and gain the power to stand out from the crowd. The first step? Leveraging who you are to create a distinct personal brand. In this talk, Blair Badenhop teaches you three essential principles of branding: how to connect with your intuitive business vision, how to weave your story, style, and voice into your online presence, and how to cultivate what she calls “client woo-power.” If you’re the face of your brand, this session is for you.
