PDX Events: Rose City Wellness Week

Portland's nickname (Rose City) was inspired by a small gesture of generosity. A man allowing neighbors to freely clip roses from his front yard, and by doing so, changed the landscape of this city forever. Native or transplant we are all connected by the city we live in. We want to encourage individuals to take small steps to be kinder, not only to each other but especially to themselves.

September 17th will kick-off a week-long series of experiences activated and led by Masters in Health & Wellness. These programs will focus on six dimensions of holistic wellness (Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Spiritual, and Environmental). Throughout the week there will be opportunities to engage and learn how movement, art, social interactions, music, education, and food play into our overall well-being.
