Having embraced the majestic force of nature, Wim resolved to share his discovery with the rest of the world. He is convinced that everyone can tap into this potential without having to invest the same decades worth of study, travel and daring.

There is so much focus now on protecting your physical health, it can be easy to forget your mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. We’ll be sharing expert advice, straight talk, personal stories and ideas, along with practices and tools you can use today to elevate your mood, rebalance your thinking, boost your resiliency and even find a little bit of magic.
Some of our speakers are well-known – you’ll recognize people like Deepak Chopra, Ariana Huffington, Zak Williams and Mariel Hemingway. Others are noted experts in mental health, wellness and brain science. Meet amazing musicians, writers and performing artists bringing inspiration and hope. But just as important, people like you and me – ordinary folks with extraordinary stories.
Hey, we have all faced mental health and emotional challenges at times. This is a great time to talk openly, eliminate the stigma, and change the way the world treats mental health.
Let’s tell our stories, share our support and imagine our future. And through it all, let’s ask:
How might these times change us and our world for the better?
How can each of us be part of that possibility?
Join us to stand for our shared humanity, to say, “you are never alone.”
WE’RE HERE FOR YOU, BE THERE FOR THEM.
