Real Talks - A Fireside Discussion about Modern Health and Wellness

https___cdn.evbuc.com_images_58581001_259314321173_1_original.jpeg

With the rise of lifestyle content on social and mass media, it’s getting increasingly difficult to navigate what it means to be healthy. All too often the conversation becomes misleading and one-sided. Living your best life is about more than smoothie bowls and gym selfies. We want to get real about all 7 dimensions of wellness - about how spiritual, social, emotional, intellectual, environmental, physical, and occupational wellness are interconnected.

Real Talks is an interactive fireside chat, hosted by Consonant Skincare, with two vibrant wellness advocates who are at the forefront of authentic conversation about healthy living. Join Madison Schill and Bianca Venerayan for this much needed chat about what it means to be healthy in today’s urban society. Join the discussion and learn more about how these women have changed their definition of health and how they channel each area of wellness.

Bring your thoughts, questions, and your friends for an evening of Real Talks. We’ll have complementary coffee, tea, fruit water, and beer on tap for your tasting pleasure.

Topics will include:

  • The social trends that affect how we view health and wellness

  • How the fashion industry and body positivity movement can co-exist

  • The financial and occupational implications of influencer brand recommendations

  • Who has the authority to take up space in the wellness conversation

  • How technology fits into health and wellbeing

And much more!

Want to join the conversation? Bring your thoughts and questions and/or DM us @ConsonantLife ahead of time and we’ll add your question to the list.

All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Bill 7 Trust - a charity that awards scholarships to LGBTQ2S+ students who are in financial need and studying to attain a post secondary degree or diploma.
