healing arts symposium – autumn 2024

Event Proposal for Teachers/Workshop Leaders

Welcome holistic practitioner! We are thrilled to invite you to join us for onda ola’s first Healing Arts Symposium. This event is designed to bring together practitioners and educators from diverse healing modalities to share their knowledge and foster a supportive community of healers.

Our two-day schedule is filled with enriching activities, with a focus on the educational aspect offering workshops on a specific healing practice or topic, providing valuable insights and resources to our attendees. There will also be mind-body events including movement practices, sound baths and sacred dance sessions.

We aim to create an environment that promotes learning, growth, and mutual support. Through this symposium, we hope to build lasting connections and enhance our collective impact on the community.

Day One (and Day Two) Example Schedule:

  • 10:00 am – 11:00 am: Opening Circle, Meditation
  • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm: Movement Practice
  • 12:00 pm – 12:30 pm: Snacks, Elixirs, Tea
  • 12:30 pm – 2:00 pm: Workshop
  • 2:15 pm – 3:45 pm: Workshop
  • 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm: Workshop
  • 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm: Sound Bath
  • 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm: Sacred Dance


  • Each workshop will be approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes in duration.
  • Workshops will focus on educating attendees about specific healing practices or topics within your area of expertise and passion, while providing valuable resources.
  • Some workshops will be available for individual purchase with a drop-in fee
  • A full day pass and a two day pass will be available for purchase¬†

We will have a couple artisanal healing vendor tables with goods for sale. The table costs will go towards covering the rent of the venue.


  • After covering the primary cost of the venue and marketing materials (i.e. ads and poster printing), remaining proceeds will be allocated as follows:
    • 15% will be reinvested into the Symposium for organization and promotion. This fee covers essential marketing efforts, administrative tasks, and logistical coordination to ensure the symposium’s success.
    • The remaining profits will be equally divided among workshop hosts.

Next Steps:

  1. Securing a Venue: We are seeking a large, open, and luminous space with comfortable yoga flapjacks/seats, ideally one that is affordable and would be mutually beneficial exposure for the studio. Potential venues are considered i.e. 10 avenue pins, but we are open to suggestion!
  2. Inaugural Meeting: We will schedule an initial meeting to discuss details, including venue, schedule flow, workshop/package costs and other logistical matters. This meeting will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas and get the ball rolling.
  3. Collaborative Organization: We welcome anyone interested in assisting with the organization of this event. Your collaboration would be greatly appreciated!

We look forward to your participation and contributions in making this symposium a successful and enriching experience for all involved.
