A four-month wellness road show is set to be held across 18 Indonesian cities from July 6 to Oct. 26.
Initiated by The Golden Space Indonesia, ALIVE 2019, dubbed as "Indonesia's first and largest positivity and wellness road show", aims to "transform lives" through talks on five issues: abundance wealth, loving relationships, inspiring works, vibrant health and empowering Earth.
“Our society is facing mental and emotional health issues with increasing pressures and challenges in all areas of life. Disruption, business competition, digital transformation, social media, unpredictable future, demand for instant success directly and indirectly have created anxiety, anger and frustration,” said Robin Muljadi, managing director of The Golden Space Indonesia, in a statement. “Through ALIVE, we intend to bring positivity and wellness back to our daily lives.”
Established in 2016, holistic health and wellness organization The Golden Space Indonesia runs retreats, workshops and meditation classes.
