Go to The BIPOC Wellness Summit at BRIC on May 18

The summit is part of "a movement towards re-envisioning Black wellness," the co-founders said.

Building Exponential Wellness (B.E. Well) will host its third annual wellness summit for people of color on Saturday, May 18, at BRIC Arts Media in downtown Brooklyn. 

In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, the event will showcase the expertise of Black health and wellness leaders, and emphasize the vital importance of Black wellness, according to a news release. 

The summit features a lineup of over 30 BIPOC wellness experts, including Dr. Roger Ball, Alicia Holmes, Maya Winston, Lisa Robinson, Kings Church of Christ, Melissa Philippe and Darnell Taylor, among others.

"The B.E. Well Experience is more than an event; it's a movement towards re-envisioning Black wellness," says Danielle Nicole and Nadine G., co-founders of B.E. Well. "Our aim is to cultivate a space that addresses the distinct needs of our community and foster significant health advancements." 

The event includes more than 20 engaging wellness activations, all designed to celebrate and prioritize Black wellness across eight key categories: physical, mental, financial, professional, community, relational, nutritional and spiritual. 

Attendees can immerse themselves in an array of activities, including yoga sessions, sound baths, journaling workshops, acupuncture sessions, financial literacy seminars, live wellness podcast discussions, community art and dialogues with mental health professionals.

Additionally, the event will offer a platform for local Black-owned wellness vendors, with a curated selection of wellness products, services and resources.

An afterparty will take place at 333 Lounge from 8pm until 2am with free access to all summit attendees. DJ sets by DJ Yung Blu and DJ Debonair One feature a mix of new school hip-hop, mixed with Reggae, Soca, Afrobeats and R&B.
