blog-post-fay-fresh-11%2f11As a holistic hub for community wellness, Guiding Wellness Institute is now an official gathering spot for Sustainable Neighbors, one of Fayetteville’s top organizations dedicated to local food and sustainability education! GWI and Sustainable Neighbors have collaborated to offer a monthly social and educational event every 2nd Friday on our gorgeous patio and garden space.

Every monthly social is built around the “12 Minute Mic” initiative–our version of abbreviated TEDx Talks by guest speakers meant to inspire and educate! A wide range of thought-provoking sustainable lifestyle topics will be explored. The evening also includes group discussions, food demos, networking, and even game options for family play.


Below are our Guest Speakers for November:

“How to Brew the Perfect Cup of Tea” – Susan Fraser; Founder of Trumpet Teas and Speaker

“One Meal A Day Phenomenon” – Lisa Bell; Wellness Coach and Specialist in Fitness Nutrition

Lessons in Preparing for the Storm” – Tiffany Ketchum; Massage Therapist, and Natural Medicine

The purpose of these gatherings is to bring people together to exchange ideas and build upon the communities we love. This diverse crowd of all ages and every walk of life cares about living a more sustainable, holistic lifestyle and gathers monthly to connect, learn, mingle, and network. All are welcome! We look forward to seeing you at this community event! We will also provide a food demo for everyone who attends to compliment the speaker and what is learned.
