DC Mind-Body-Spirit Wellness Panelists with HolistiCitiLyfe founder, Leslie Carrington

 

On Sunday, July 15, 2017, I joined HolistiCitiLyfe as a panelist for the DC stop of their Mind-Body-Spirit-Wellness Lounge Tour at Anacostia Arts Center. HolistiCitiLyfe curates an inclusive, non-judgemental space for individuals in all phases of their wellness journey. Each panelist was able to share more about their personal wellness journey and life’s work. I spoke about the benefits of a plant-based, non-toxic lifestyle and my perspective about what it’s like to be a woman of color in the wellness industry.

Other panelists included Dr. Crystal Jones of Heal with Crystal and Avalaura Gaither Beharry MSW, LGSW of Avalaura Healing Center.

This event was more than just a panel discussion. It was an opportunity to showcase and support small, black owned businesses in the District.
