THAT WAS THE HEALING SUMMIT 2017

March 2017

Cologne, March 2017 – The fourth annual HEALING SUMMIT 2017, organized by Healing Hotels of the World, brought 115 delegates from 23 countries for a two-day conference at Rocco Forte Hotel de Rome in Berlin together. Hospitality and wellbeing professionals, holistic practitioners, social enterprise as well as sustainability specialists gathered on the 6th and 7th of March to Build a Global Healing Business Community. (...)

This year’s theme followed a universal call, a business necessity of the near future: Building a Global Healing Business Community. The HEALING SUMMIT set out to foster this global community for all the obvious reasons that come with it: being stronger as a community, a louder voice, a wider network and a more powerful impact. The aim was to provide ideas and inspiration for personal as well as economic growth and to contribute to the development of a soulful economy that aims for profit out of a higher purpose, namely the benefit of all.

“Today, a business’s sustainability rating really does impact on sales as more consumers reward good. This trend will completely change the way that the business world works”, predicted Asa Siegel, founder of STAMBA Superfoods, when talking about “Increased Brand Awareness and Profitability through Doing Good”. Living proof of what still seems to be naive or utopian to many of today’s power brokers was Rupert Schmid, Chairman of Biologique Recherche. His company does not differentiate between personal and business values: “Humility is usually not something typically that characterizes a manager. But this is how we want to lead our company.” He therefore looks at money “as a tool to achieve something”, and hence invests a majority for the benefit of all.

We don’t look at business solely as an economic matter, but believe that doing good results out of feeling good, of being at peace with oneself. That’s why we aim for a Global HEALING Business Community. And healing starts with the individual. Dr Marjorie Woollacott, Emerita Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Oregon, supported this statement scientifically. Her research proofs the direct positive impact of meditation on life, health and leadership. “Our own lab has found that meditation improves our attention and ability to focus – it also reduces stress and improves our emotional wellbeing”, Dr Woollacott said. “We are able to look and reflect about situations rather than only react to them. Meditating on a regular basis leaves you more empathetic, more caring and with the strong disposition to alleviate suffering and the wish of others to be happy.”

The HEALING SUMMIT also gave a status quo in regards to tourism and the customers’ current needs. Stella Photi, founder and managing director of Wellbeing Escapes shared that “in 2007 our clients wanted to book packages that would help them ‘look more beautiful’ or ‘be thinner’. This language has completely changed. They are looking for transformational packages – ways to become ‘a better me’. They say ‘teach me’, ‘help me’. People now want to go to nurturing environments where they can take care of themselves in a meaningful, holistic way”.

We offered content strictly dealing with business issues in all its various forms. And to balance this out we successfully offered content like meditation, yoga and even dancing to push some triggers in regards to personal development. We combined two worlds, leaving the delegates with the freedom to take home whatever suited them best at this moment.

HEALING HOTELS OF THE WORLD - THE WORLD'S MOST UNIQUE HOTEL BRAND

February 2017

As the only hotel brand for holistic health worldwide, Healing Hotels of the World has more than 100 member hotels located in 46 countries. Each location is unique in terms of focus and area of expertise. What they have in common is the highest standard of quality, a healing vision, and a passionate holistic approach towards everything they do. Healing Hotels are change agents for an enriched life experience. (...)

During their first visit to one of the founding member hotels – Ananda in the Himalayas – the creators of Healing Hotels experienced in a very short time, a transformation to a new level of wellbeing and happiness. They decided that these were the places they wanted to promote to the world and founded the brand Healing Hotels of the World.

The feeling of ultimate wellbeing is a state of happiness and contentment that cannot be achieved solely by outer stimuli. It is a state of being healthy in body, mind and soul. To achieve this state, a complex interplay of different components is necessary including nutrition, holistic therapies and a healing environment.

This is why Healing Hotels of the World developed a detailed set of criteria. Each hotel or resort is evaluated personally by Healing Hotels of the World. As a qualified member of Healing Hotels of the World, each hotel or resort guarantees a supreme experience for each guest.

The hotel collection offers tremendous variety based on location, ranging from mountains to beaches to tropical environments. Guests are able to experience the ancient wisdom of India, the healing effects of the Australian and African bush, as well as medical checks, yoga, meditation, quiet walks through nature, and much, much more. There is even a Healing Concierge to help you identify hotels or resorts that best suit your requirements, your health or wellbeing goals, preferred destination, culture and climate, or any other questions you may have.

Since the founding of Healing Hotels of the World in 2006, people around the world are waking up to see that changes in their lifestyles are necessary, and thus, are seeking Healing Hotels as centers capable of providing profound transformation. In all corners of the world, more and more hotels and resorts are committing to healing. On six continents, the same passion for a more healing, a more sustainable, and a more compassionate lifestyle has emerged.

The brand is also at the forefront of supporting the global paradigm shift towards a soulful economy through organizing the HEALING SUMMIT – COMMITTED TO HEALING. The HEALING SUMMIT is an annual event which provides space for individuals and businesses to meet, debate, discuss and learn from the expertise of extraordinary speakers from all over the world.

HEALING SUMMIT - BUILDING A GLOBAL HEALING BUSINESS COMMUNITY

February 2017

Cologne, February 2017 – The fourth annual HEALING SUMMIT 2017, inspired and organized by Healing Hotels of the World*, takes place on March 6/7, 2017 in Berlin. The HEALING SUMMIT is all about bringing together like-minded people who are seeking a healing lifestyle in all areas of their life, both personal and professional, and who want to contribute to the wellbeing of others. (...)

What does it take to live a life filled with purpose, contentment, joy and prosperity? How would it feel, if, by our actions, this dream became a reality for all? What would this new reality look like for you personally and professionally? How can you be actively involved in this evolutionary shift? These questions and many more will be explored at the HEALING SUMMIT 2017.

Topics include “Healing and Business”, and in this context, how a holistic lifestyle influences the economy. The “Global Healing Economy” and “Business for Benefit versus Business for Profit” will be part of the discussion with delegates from six continents presenting their vision for a united, peaceful world. Finally, it will be examined how the ancient wisdom of indigenous peoples can influence both our personal and professional lives.

This year you can expect transformative talks from global business executives, scientists, integrative medical professionals, healers, psychologists and thought leaders.

Among the speakers at the HEALING SUMMIT 2017 are Catherine Parrish and Dr. Marjorie Hines Woollacott. Catherine, Founder & President, NextLevel Leadership Inc., served as the CEO of International Humanitarian organizations for over two decades and will be talking about „FROM ‚MONEY MONSTER‘ TO THE GODDESS OF ABUNDANCE – MAKING MONEY WORK FOR YOU“. Dr. Marjorie, Emerita Professor of Neuroscience at the University of Oregon, has authored the book: “Infinite Awareness: The Awakening of a Scientific Mind”, and will address „MEDITATION AS A MEANS TO EXTEND COMPASSION TO OURSELVES AND OUR PLANET“. A workshop will explore specific ways of how to “TURN HEALING INTO BUSINESS”. Amongst others Stella Photi, founder of Wellbeing Escapes, will share her experiences on “HOW TO PACKAGE AND SELL YOUR PRODUCTS: REACHING THE NEW CUSTOMER”. Valerie Smaldone, a 5-time Billboard Magazine Award winner and well known for her unprecedented success holding the #1 on-air position in the New York radio market, will be hosting the event. Valerie has hosted, produced and created several nationally syndicated programs featuring in-depth interviews with top recording artists.

Anne Biging, co-founder of Healing Hotels of the World and founder of the HEALING SUMMIT, announced: “Besides being inspired, this year we delegates will receive tools to implement a holistic understanding of business and economy into their business and personal life.”

THE HEALING SUMMIT - COMMITTED TO HEALING - CREATING A NEW WORLD

Cologne, April 2016

CREATING A NEW WORLD
The HEALING SUMMIT – COMMITTED TO HEALING, organized by Healing Hotels of the World, and now in its 3rd year, is a conference that presents all aspects of a holistic lifestyle. (...)

The title of this year’s conference was “Creating from the Core of Goodness: Life, Business, World”.

There is a world-wide movement, a waking up, based on the understanding that we are responsible for our personal wellbeing, our destiny and how we treat our fellow human beings and the world. It is a shift of values from exploitation of ourselves, others and our environment towards a more sensitive and healing understanding of who we are and what we do. It acknowledges that at the core of our being we want goodness in our lives.

The HEALING SUMMIT addressed the different topics of the new worldview.

On an economic level it revolved around the question how we can redefine business success to create a soulful economy that diminishes the inequality of our world. It showed the interconnectedness of our own healing lifestyle with the business practices of the future. Business leaders gave examples of how they created a business based on these new paradigms.

A holistic lifestyle implies the awareness of the relation between body, mind and soul. The HEALING SUMMIT provided space for the ancient wisdom of different cultures that do not only have a deep understanding of this relation but also of our bond with nature and the spiritual realm.

At the HEALING SUMMIT a cosmopolitan audience, including delegates from Saudi Arabia, China and Russia, explored our global identity and what mankind has in common albeit all differences.

“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” (Gandhi). At the HEALING SUMMIT leading personal development experts showed ways how to realize that. This made the HEALING SUMMIT a unique conference that did not only provide knowledge in regards to what to do but also about how to be the best version of you.

The speakers as well as the delegates of the HEALING SUMMIT 2016 came from 27 countries, encompassing business leaders from different industries, who understand that the world is rapidly changing into a new direction.

The aim of the HEALING SUMMIT is not only to share knowledge but also to allow like-minded people to find an atmosphere of mutual support and the encouragement to take a necessary step into the future.

In years to come the HEALING SUMMIT will branch out to different other continents and cities such as Shanghai and New York.

THE WORLD’S MOST UNIQUE HOTEL BRAND CELEBRATES ITS 10TH ANNIVERSARY

Cologne, May 2016

When Anne Biging and Dr. Elisabeth Ixmeier experienced that spending even a short time in a hotel or resort that offers holistic healing can create a transformative experience, they made it their mission to make these properties known to the world. This is why the unique hospitality brand Healing Hotels of the World was founded 10 years ago. (...)

The feeling of holistic well-being is a state of happiness and contentment that cannot be achieved by any outer stimulus. It is a state of health of body, mind and soul. To achieve this state, a complex interplay of different components is necessary including nutrition, holistic therapies, a healing environment and atmosphere.

This is why Healing Hotels of the World developed a detailed set of criteria to secure only the leading global health resorts. Each vetted hotel or resort become members by invitation only, and are evaluated individually by Healing Hotels of the World. As a qualified member of Healing Hotels of the World, each hotel or resort guarantees the most supreme experience for each guest.

There are 110 member hotels located in 46 countries and each one is unique in terms of focus and offered specialties. However, what they have in common is the highest standard of quality, the healing vision, and a passionate holistic approach applied toward everything they do.

The hotel collection offers tremendous variety based on the location of each region, ranging from mountains to beaches to tropical environments. Guests are able to experience the ancient wisdom of India, the healing effects of the Australian and African bush, as well as medical checks, yoga, meditation, quiet walks through the nature, and much more.

The holistic health and wellness travel market is growing rapidly. It is projected to increase by more than 9% per year through 2017, nearly 50% faster than the global tourism overall. It is a sought after market as wellness tourists are high-yield customers, spending 65% more per trip than the average guest. In the future, the markets will shift from Central Europe and the United States to Asia, especially China, India, and Latin America.*

The brand is also at the forefront of supporting the global paradigm shift towards a soulful economy through organizing the HEALING SUMMIT – COMMITTED TO HEALING. The HEALING SUMMIT is an annual event which provides space for individuals and businesses to meet, debate, discuss and learn from the expertise of extraordinary speakers from all over the world. Topics include insights into a professional and personal healing lifestyle, sustainable practices and inspiring charity or not-for-profit projects. Furthermore, with an office in China and hotels and resorts on five continents, Healing Hotels of the World represents the global movement towards a healthier and happier lifestyle.

As a contributor to the enhancement of the world’s welfare, Healing Hotels of the World was invited to become a member of the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI). CGI is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving global health, increasing opportunity for women and girls, reducing childhood obesity and preventable diseases, and creating economic opportunity and growth through the power of creative collaboration, and much more. https://www.clintonfoundation.org/clinton-global-initiative
