Heal One World

Heal One World was formed to help connect people in need of preventative health care, non-traditional/complementary modalities, including non-invasive treatments and guidance learning self help techniques, that are generally not covered by insurance, and offer access to this help on a sliding scale, free or donation basis. We help to serve children, those with chronic illness, as well as the general disadvantaged population to be sure everyone has access to all options available to them.

Awareness Film Art & Music Festival + New classes!

Awareness Festival Volunteer Staff
Awareness Festival Volunteer Staff

Here it is again! School Time!  We are partnering with the Bresee Foundation again, to offer yoga PLUS meditation, nutritional support and dance every Thursday afternoon to two sets of middle schoolers and sometimes high school youth!

We are recoverig from the biggest event of the year here at HOW.  The Awareness Festival!

The festival weekend vibrated with energy along the 3rd Street Promenade. Attendees were able to stroll along Santa Monica Boulevard from the Laemmle Theatre on 2nd Street to the Promenade Playhouse on 3rd Street to Magicopolis on 4th Street. Extra activities were both holistic and fun. The Zen Den, which originated at Sundance Film Festival, treated 70 filmmakers and celebrities to acupuncture, cranial sacral, and massage. A yoga class with renowned instructor Hala Khouri was followed by an energetic Vegan Boss rap performance at the Dance Doctor studio.

The festival was created as a Zero Waste event, in collaboration with Zero Waste Co zerowasteco.com. By rethinking, recycling, composting, and donating waste materials, all waste were diverted from landfills. Bins were provided at each venue. The weekend Eco Market at the Magicopolis included presentations by Solfusion (solar initiatives), LegalShield, Benedetta Holistic Skin Care, Farm Fresh to You, Cerraeh Laykin, Zero Waste Co, with art by Jodi Smith.

Engaging and well attended filmmaker panels covered subjects such as how to adapt films and movie theaters for the blind and deaf, as well as how to market your socially conscious film. The opening and closing nights were held at the Aero Theatre on Montana Ave. Lori Rischer of KIIS FM hosted the closing night. 

Children and pets were included in the festival. Young Cameron Nino performed as part of the Kids Aware afternoon which also featured activities like recycled art projects and eco face painting plus numerous films. There was even a Flash Mob for pet adoption with Megan Blake and Smiley the Dog, during which he 4th Street sidewalk swelled with people performing the Smiley the Dog dance from the movie.

Here at the Healthy Living Center we welcome Julia who is doing guided Meditation every Monday at 11am followed by Yoga.  Zumba will be back again this Fall as well, and welcoming new energy workers on board for weekend clinics.

Have a wonderful Fall and work towards your health goals knowing we are here to support all people who need resources, including you!

Springing into Health at Heal One World!

Zen Den Sundance

Springing up this season at Heal One World are some cool new classes! Awareness Through Movement is starting in June.  Tai Chi is expanding and the classes at front porch at the Vista Towers will be broadcast to several different senior centers in Southern California.  We are also implementing a Summer Yoga Program at A Place Called Home in South Central for youth which will continue until the Fall with Zumba! in their regular weekly program. We are taking part of their Health Fair in May offering free yoga and Zumba classes. Additionally, the founder of Amayoga, Aimee Schoof, has recently joined forces with Heal One World and under our name, arranges free yoga classes at homeless shelters and transitional housing. She is also a new boardmember of the project. We are happy to announce we were a finalist for the LA Business Journals Healthcare Leadership Awards

This year, Heal One World is also proud to present the Fourth Annual Awareness Festival! Started in 2010, the Festival’s intent has been to promote awareness of today’s issues through the art of film. In addition, it has been the largest annual funding source for Heal One World. This year, we have expanded our reach with new venues, sponsorships, initiatives and a number of engaging films targeting issues such as mental illness, environmental deterioration and spirituality as well as social action campaigns. Some of the films, shorts and documentaries we will be showcasing include “Home,” Turning Point" and “Beauty and the Breast.” We are also proud to announce that we will be having our opening night in Santa Monica with many awesome venues around town also taking part.  Lastly, an idea I spearheaded and introduced at Sundance was the Zen Den – a space that  provided meditation, yoga and film screenings. It was more than well received and we were able to network with a number of people who are now connected with the Awareness Fest and Heal One World for the foreseeable future.  We are also planning on incorporating Zen Den at this festival for filmmakers as well as attendees. Join us if you are in LA for some free classes!
