Natural Awakenings San Diego

Local Holistic Chamber President at International Event

Ever heard of the Holistic Chamber of Commerce? San Diego's North County Chapter President, Eileen Kurlander, of Carmel Valley, and others from around the continent met last weekend to determine how to make sure everyone knows about it. Meeting at a conference center in Estes Park, Colorado, leaders of this organization hammered out plans for expanding the focus and scope to reach more holistic-minded businesses and consumers, as well as help to establish government policies that promote wellness.

The Holistic Chamber of Commerce is a gathering place for professionals who practice with the intention of creating healthy people and healthy businesses on a healthy planet.

Since its creation just a few short years ago, it has grown consistently with chapters springing up all across the United States and Canada, as well as the United Kingdom, and membership increasing steadily. The conference in Colorado was the first opportunity many of these leaders had to come together to determine the next steps needed to build on this momentum. “It's an exciting time bringing businesses together to explore conscious options, and steer the direction towards education and policies that promote wellness,” says Kurlander. “Together, we are creating something greater than we could have individually.”

Currently, the international organization boasts three chapters in San Diego County, and more than a dozen throughout California.
