Tetherow has teamed up with nationally recognized energy healer Bill Turner to offer wellness breakout sessions for groups meeting and staying at the Bend, Oregon, resort. The sessions are held at the resort event pavilion, which includes floor-to-ceiling glass doors framing views of the Cascade Mountains.

Turner has more than 30 years of experience in land, horse and human energy work. Based in Sisters, Oregon, he is also a professional speaker and trainer.

“We have worked with Bill on a number of projects at Tetherow, including breakout sessions for our own employees during company meetings,” says Chris van der Velde, managing partner. “The employees come out of the sessions clearer, more alert and ready to get back to business. Our own experience, along with the increased interest from planners, led us to partner with Bill to create unique breakout sessions meant to increase productivity and create a sense of wellness for our meeting and event guests.”

Groups can choose between two sessions: Am I Breathing? Am I Grounded? Am I Happy? and ChiGong for Health. The former takes participants through simple and engaging exercises that pertain to breathing, grounding and happiness. The goal of the session is for participants to walk away with tools to live a more balanced and productive life.

ChiGong for Health is appropriate for shorter breakout sessions that seek to refresh the mind and body. ChiGong—also spelled Qigong—is meditation through slow, flowing movements and deep, rhythmic breathing. It is said to maintain health, increase stamina, slow the aging process and create a calm mental state. 

Both sessions are $150 per participant. For information, contact director of sales Kristi DiTullio at kditullio@tetherow.com

The industry came together at The Foundry by Herban Feast on Oct. 19, 2017, for our Best of 2017 readers’ choice awards. In addition to great music and food, beer tastings, and candid photo booth snapshots, Northwest Meetings + Events raised approximately $900 for the SEARCH Foundation through a silent auction. The evening was capped off with our awards ceremony presided over by emcee Ron Hippe.
