Free Wellness Events
Since 2014, I had the pleasure of hosting free monthly Wellness Events where we held a space for meditation, qi gong, acupressure and drinking tea together. Recently I decided to start my Doctorate in Chinese Medicine (October 2017). Due to my work/ study schedule, I will have to cancel the Wellness Events with the hope that I will restart them again in the future.
