About the event
On January 29th, in partnership and co-hosted with Athleta, our next MoxxieMade Supper Series kicks off with an amazing panel of wellness experts on the topic of Defining Wellness. Join us for a rooted, raw and real discussion on the true meaning of wellness and how can we cultivate more of that feeling in our lives.

Come enjoy a delicious meal, dynamic dialogue, and an opportunity to build meaningful relationships in an intimate setting with both like-minded peers and our courageous speakers.

Event Flow
After mingling at the cocktail hour, the event starts off with a panel discussion with our incredible speakers and followed by a family-style shared meal to form friendships and gain true mentorship. Oftentimes, with panel discussions, speakers are put on a pedestal. At our event, we want to give all women a seat at the table, letting you dine side-by-side with your girl crushes.

You will love this if you want - 
• One-on-one mentoring from power-house women
• To form authentic relationships with both the speakers and like-minded women
• To connect with an intimate group of women on topics that matter
• A courage-boost for your daily life
• To enjoy delicious food, wine, and great company

Our Co-host Partner - Athleta Athleta believes in the #powerofshe but also that we are strongest when we support one another. Athleta believes that “when all women come together, we’ll be unstoppable.” So they aim to inspire that feeling of community in everything they do. Their mission is to ignite a community of healthy, confident, active women and girls to unleash their limitless potential. Now, that’s a mission we can get behind.

Topic Focus: 
Defining Wellness

Holistic health.

Our topic will be focusing on getting the real-real on the definition of wellness from today’s wellness experts. We'll explore the different meanings of wellness - physical, spiritual, and intellectual- because wellness is so much more than our physical health. We'll tap into the different dimensions of wellness, how there is no one-size approach, and figuring out how to explore your own definition of wellness.
