Africa Day

As Africa Day approaches, Octoberlily Wellness is excited to invite you to a special gathering on May 25th, 2024, to celebrate the richness of African culture and heritage. This significant day commemorates the founding of the African Union (AU) on May 25th, 1963. The formation of the AU aimed to promote unity, solidarity, and cooperation among African nations and to address the continent's challenges collectively. AU was designed for African interests, which speaks to; culture, diplomacy, politics and self-determination.


1.      Gentle Vinyasa Flow Yoga

Boitumelo Mnisi (founder of Octoberlily Wellness), will guide participants through a Gentle Vinyasa Flow yoga session, themed around activating the Root Chakra. We'll explore asanas (postures) that strengthen and stabilize the body, emphasizing mindful movement and breath awareness to ground ourselves in the present moment. The session is suitable for all levels.


2.      Special Guest, Vangile Makwakwa

We are honored to welcome Vangile Makwakwa, author and founder of Wealthy Money, as our guest of the day. Vangile Makwakwa, author and founder of Wealthy Money, is a leading voice in the realm of financial wellness, particularly focusing on empowering women of color to heal their generational money trauma and cultivate financial freedom and a healthier relationship with money.

Discussion Topic

Vangile will be in discussion about her latest book, "What's Your Money Personality?: Changing the way Black families manage their finances”. Money can be a source of stress, anxiety, and trauma for many individuals, especially within communities of color. We found it especially apt to host this conversation on Africa Day because it aligns with the spirit of empowerment and liberation that this day represents. We believe that financial well-being is an integral part of overall wellness. Guests will have an opportunity to purchase signed books at the gathering.


3.      Angel Card Reading

This part of the day will be for relaxation, it entails drawing cards from an Angel Card Deck, each card offers unique messages, guidance, inspiration, and encouragement for daily life. These readings can offer insights into overcoming challenges, finding clarity, and connecting with higher guidance, motivating guests to live authentically and purposefully.


4.      Buffet Brunch

The buffet brunch features a delightful spread of classic dishes prepared with a contemporary twist, offering a culinary experience that honors tradition while embracing innovation. Whether you're gathering with friends, family, or colleagues, the sumptuous brunch offerings promise to delight your senses and create lasting memories.


5.      Tune-out Meditation

Boitumelo will guide us through a practice of letting go of any remaining tension, stress, or limiting beliefs related to money. We'll focus on surrendering to the flow of abundance and releasing any attachments or fears that may be holding us back from manifesting our financial goals.


Join us on May 25th, 2024, for a gathering filled with mindful movement holistic wellness practices, insightful discussions, and a celebration of African heritage and resilience. Together, let's engage and embrace a journey towards sustainable healing, empowerment, and prosperity.
