An experience that nutures the whole person
SNOWMASS In only its fourth year, The Snowmass Wellness Experience hosts an all-star line-up of wellness speakers for the Aug. 17-19 celebration in Snowmass Village. Unlike other wellness events that are confined to the classroom or conference center, our participants are learning how to nurture the whole person indoors, outdoors and through practical, hands-on opportunities throughout the resort, says Event Director Josh Behrman. Weve created a totally immersive, truly holistic lifestyle festival, from morning meditations to sampling healthy cuisine to heading out on a bike with a professional athlete.Over two days the Snowmass Wellness Experience, which is sponsored by Body & Soul Magazine, Vitamin Cottage, the Denver Post, the Crestwood, and the Shakti Foundation, gives participants access to top nutrition, fitness, and spirituality and science experts, including six best-selling authors. The popular Swing into Wellness dinner celebration kicks off the weekend on Friday and distinguished keynote speakers Marianne Williamson and Dan Millman address audiences on Saturday. Williamson examines the life-affirming principles first discussed in A Course In Miracles and in her forthcoming book, while Millman explores how to align ones life to fundamental principles at the heart of every health and healing tradition in the world.Nearly 20 other internationally respected wellness and fitness presenters such as Dr. Pamela Peeke, Michael T. Murray, Steve Hess, Janet Stone, and Belleruth Naparstek, discuss wellness topics such as stress, super foods, gluten intolerance, the healing power of music, Anusara yoga, and the wellness programs used by NBA athletes.This years event raises the bar even further by also becoming certified as an approved program for up to 13 hours of professional continuing education credits. This new designation allows professionals ranging from nurses to psychologists the opportunity to gain knowledge and credit in the workplace for attending.No other wellness event in the U.S. offers such a comprehensive and intimate opportunity to explore wellness issues, both for individuals and professionals, says Marketing Director Susan Hamley. Its not a wellness conference, but rather the opportunity to immerse yourself in a truly life-transforming weekend in a beautiful mountain destination. Snowmass Village offers a wealth of activities for the mind, body and spirit including spa services at local hotels, golf, 40 miles of scenic hiking and biking trails in the surrounding Snowmass-Maroon Bells Wilderness Area, and mountain adventures such as free concerts, horseback riding, and hot air balloon rides.For the complete Snowmass Wellness Experience schedule, please visit the official website at http://www.snowmasswellness.com.
