The Future of Wellness: A Message from Bea and the Team

By: Beatrice Dixon

I have always been passionate about healing. Whether it's my mind, body, or spirit - I understand that this is a lifelong journey that requires humility, vulnerability, and grace. This is something that I have practiced and embedded into everything that we do at The Honey Pot. I am so passionate about making sure that we have access to tools that can improve our wellbeing, we are always looking for ways to serve humanity. 

While preparing for our 2024 Reclaiming Wellness initiative, we realized that our individual healing is very much connected to the healing of the collective. We realized that one cannot overcome challenges alone and one cannot overcome challenges without helping others. Going into this year the team and myself have been really focused on creating more balance in our lives. If we are being honest, many of us have felt out of balance at some point in the past year. We started to ask ourselves a few key questions to gain more clarity around what our focus should be for the year: 

  • What does it mean to create a new definition of wellness based on the needs of the collective community? 
  • How can we each individually move the needle towards collective wellness and how can we hold each other accountable? 
  • How can we make our individual resources and knowledge shared resources and knowledge? 
  • How can we continue to create space for us to truly be seen, supported, and encouraged while on this wellness journey? 

Once we started answering these questions, we realized that there are several areas that require care, aside from the physical body. Yes, it is our goal to create efficacious and clean wellness products for humans everywhere, but it is our soul mission to use our voices responsibly to give back to the humans who support us and carry our community with us wherever we go.  

In 2020 we started Reclaiming Wellness as an offering to the humans that we serve during a time that many of us felt needed healing and comfort. Over Zoom, we shared a collective meditation. We spoke positively about the well-being of ourselves and our loved ones during a time of grand uncertainty. After this pause and reflection, we knew we had to commit again the next year.  

Within the following years, we explored the impact that Black women have had in healthcare touching on the importance of generational storytelling. Reclaiming Wellness evolved into a Masterclass tour for 4 HBCUs to connect our community to some of our favorite authors, advocates, doctors, and humans of influence.   

This year we invite you to look inward as a collective and we are traveling to the future of wellness as we focus on our individual healing that is very much connected to the healing of the collective. 

Over the last couple of years, it has been such an honor to commit to this tradition and continue to support our collective healing. Please join us on Wednesday, February 21st, 2024  5:30pm - 6:30pm in person or via zoom and participate in a guided conversation led by myself and some of my favorite thought leaders. 

See you there. Love you, mean it.
