Dr. Art Hister, health analyst and “media doctor”, launches the Winds of Change Speaker Series tonight with his free talk, Yes You Can: Easy Steps to Living a Happier, Healthier, Longer Life at 7:00 p.m. at Ull’us Community Complex in Mount Currie.
“The speaker series is our commitment to engage community members about wellness throughout the year,” said Sheldon Tetreault, Winds of Change Steering Committee Chair. “We have had great success with the Wellness Gathering and wanted to ensure people have the opportunity to stay engaged in our mission outside of the Wellness Gathering as well. We are glad that Art Hister is our first speaker. He is one of those wonderful individuals that combines knowledge, passion, and humour. We are looking forward to a fantastic evening in Mount Currie with him. I also hope we can show Art the healing power of the Lil’wat drums”
Following an opening prayer and drumming circle, the award-winning celebrity medic will address living longer, lowering the risk of chronic illness, slowing the aging process, lowering stress levels and living with more energy and happiness, in his trademark entertaining style. Attendees will also have a chance at winning one of Dr. Hister’s books in a prize draw.
The next event in the Speaker Series will be a special screening of We Were Children in February 2014. The feature film follows the Winds of Change Committee’s resolve to support Reconciliation Week, and exposes the impact of the Canadian government’s residential school system.
