I am actually REALLY excited about this blog post today! I am providing you with a quick but stellar rundown of the 'best of the best' opportunities in wellness, fun & health that are being offered the remainder of the year in Chicago!
This post kind of reminds me of the emails that I get from Windy City Blogger Collective! One of the Founders, Kit Graham, sends all members a weekly email of really amazing opportunities/events to attend in the city that week. Speaking of WCBC, if you are a blogger, writer or content creator, becoming a member is worthwhile (beyond)!
The following is a wide variety of wellness related events in Chicago that hopefully get you as excited as they have gotten me!
1. Dr. Mercola Anniversary Health Webinar, August, 23-August 25th - Dr. Mercola is celebrating his 18 Year Anniversary as the leading Natural Health website in the entire country for the past 10 years! This is seriously a health 'gift' to you. If you want to get educated on health, you can attend this at no cost and get a health education that would typically cost you hundreds of dollars or more w/ multiple physicians. Again, this is a gift to you. He is hosting a FREE webinar for all subscribers. 'To commemorate these 18 years together, we've put together an anniversary lineup of never-before-seen content, education, live webinars, free giveaways, and fun!
2. The BeHealthful Retreat, September 27th - This is a one day - all day - transformative wellness summit where you will listen to panels of health experts on various topics, practice yoga with the best instructors in Chicago, get facials & massages, be educated on supplements and holistic nutritional products, meet holistic physicians, etc. Sarah Baker, the Curator of The BeHealthful Retreat keeps upping the anty on wellness/health education for attendees! It's my favorite wellness event of the year!
3. Storyline Conference, November 5-7 - I am sharing this LIFE CHANGING opportunity now for those of you who need to budget to attend! What IS the Storyline Conference?
At Storyline, we believe people who live clear, meaningful lives have the greatest influence on culture.
When you attend The Storyline Conference you’ll be inspired, gain clarity and leave with a life plan. Our story based process has lead thousands to discover lasting change and a life of meaning. On top of it all, you’ll hear from a lineup of world renowned speakers share their incredible stories of how they see life differently.
The conference only happens once a year, so don’t miss your chance to join our community of like minded people just crazy enough to ask themselves, “What would the world miss if I don’t tell my story?”
***The Storyline Conference is created by Donald Miller - who is aiding me in transforming my own life and as of right now, the most highly influential author and content creator, in my personal life. I didn't see the changes that are happening in my life coming but they are all a result of his mentor-ship.
Donald Miller is a student of story. He's the author of New York Times Best Sellers: Blue Like Jazz, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, and Scary Close. He's the president and founder of StoryBrand.com.
4. Food Tank is offering multiple dates for online webinars, workshops and various events for you to learn more about sustainability, the economics of ecosystems, biodiversity for agriculture, the state of the organic industry, the global food crisis, etc. Get educated on the world you live in and how you can be of service - absolutely incredible opportunities for you via education and participation in helping our environment!
And finally, some fun in sun opportunities that are a MUST to wrap up your summer in Chicago!!!!
FREE concerts on the 'revamped' Riverwalk in Chicago every weekend & Wed. evening! It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! And a serious 'must do at least once' with community in Chicago. And if you don't have community, go solo as there are so many friendly people hanging out that you can mingle with!
Sign up for a 'Fireworks Paddle' kayake adventure through the city!!!! Breathtaking! Some athletic ability is required as it's a 6 mile round trip - memorable and fun!
And if you don't have a bike, just rent a DIVVY, it's cheap! Head to the lake - get outdoors and soak in every last bit of summer. I remain convinced that there is no better place to spend an entire summer then Chicago with tons of community!
Enjoy folks! If you know of any fab wellness opportunities in Chicago, please share them with me via any of my social media handles!
