    Find a yoga mat, snuggle up with some blankets, and enjoy the soothing sounds of crystal bowls, chimes, tuning forks, and bamboo flute music played by experienced mindfulness and meditation teachers.

    Mex/Art, a cultural and social project of Be/Art Gallery, is an online Gallery of art that promotes the works by artists of different origins, styles and genders.

    During the difficult moments that we are living in the United States, in Puerto Rico by the devastations of the hurricane Maria and the earthquake (Mexico City, Morelos, Hidalgo y Oaxaca) that have occurred in past days, Mex/Art tries to be a bond of kindness and humanity with those whom have been affected.100% of the money collected from the sales of the opening day tickets, will be destined to support the Puerto Rican and Mexican victims.

    Mex/Art will have areas like The Green Garden, where the attendees can taste many different and delicious traditional dishes with a contemporary touch. At the same time the Pop-Up Store will open their doors to the local and Mexican Designers that are in vogue to show their latest pieces.
    Some of the Mexican artists that represent the culture with their pieces are Neón Carón Jesús Lima, Jorge Marín, Esteban Fuentes and Colectivo Madera de Lobo. As invited artist, there will be the brazilian Romero Britto.

    La Santa Taqueria is collaborating with Be/Art Gallery to curate the culinary experiences for guests of Mex/Art – a contemporary and pop art exhibition celebrating emerging and established Mexican artists, from paintings and drawings to sculptures from December 1-11. Artists featured include Romero Britto (Brazilian invited artist), Jorge Marin, Jesus Lima, Neon Caron, Alvaro Cuevas, Gabriela Montano, Robert Morleghem, Carlos Luna (Cuban invited artist) and more.

    By Guest Contributor Sarah Hirth

    “A multi-sensory and inclusive event gathering leading experts that takes us on a journey to learn, experience and practice tools that assist people on a path to sustainable happiness and well-being. Through knowledge and new positive mindsets attendees can reshape their personal, family and professional lives.” – from the WoHaSu website.

    The WOHASU 2018, that took place at the University of Miami, was a weekend filled with inspiring and educational talks about happiness. Leading experts in from various different disciplines, such as positive psychology, fashion, media, sustainability, economics, mindfulness, technology, and business, attended this year’s summit. The topics of the presentations ranged from sharing personal experiences and personal projects to talking about the science behind happiness. Of course, there were many more areas that were covered, but in some way, they all related to the main topic of happiness. This year, the WOHASU welcomed people from over 35 countries and 45 US states.

    Every morning a few early birds participated in the outdoor yoga program, before attending the first talk around 9 am. Although the weekend was filled with many talks, and panels, there were also breakout sessions during which multiple experts presented in different rooms at the same time. This allowed attendees to chose presentations that they were most interested in. Attendees also had the opportunity to meet with coaches in small groups. These sessions were great for networking, but also for talking about the lessons learned and how to best implement and integrate the lessons into a daily routine.
