I’ve found that one of the most effective ways of expressing the values of My Olive Roots is to have real touch and feel experiences that only grassroots events, like a  market, can offer.

The first such market MOR participated in, was with Body Tree Studios  in the spirit of Palestine and it was a great success, giving us the chance to connect with people from all walks of life who were committed to a meaningful retail experience. How? By buying ethically sourced products from small-scale vendors who have healing the world – at some level – as their USP.

 

This will be Body Tree’s 5th Yoga Market and will host Nancy Zabaneh as its special Yogi guest, a Kundalini Teacher and emotional intelligence mentor. Founders of the Body Tree Studios, Nadia and Sharifa Sehweil, are the fulcrum of Yoga at-its-best here in Abu Dhabi and they are  committed to exploring ways through which grassroots events can strengthen the experience of community.

This time around, we will be hobnobbing with the studios juice bar, Nectar, which is the brainchild of Mira Naaman Iskandar, a London trained chef famous for her healthy creations.  

Also at the market, Rumi Earth, Hautletic, Mala B, Mr. Fox, Shaggy Hands, Clove Essentials, Womn Cosmetics, yApparel, and Holly Holistic.

Ideal for those who want to shop for a cause, on offer will be our favourite Palestinian-inspired products, which are either produced in Palestine or lovingly recreated by refugees or by local small-scale producers with an intrinsic theme of the Mediterranean.

EVERY TIME YOU SPEND MONEY, YOU ARE CASTING A VOTE FOR THE KIND OF WORLD YOU WANT.
