Active Days of Summer

Busy, indeed — and we’ve much news to share with you.

Our director Dr Anne has completed her “5 continents in 5 months” introduction of EWP across the globe, expanding our network of business colleagues and listening to the needs of busy professionals everywhere. Along the way, she participated in the BPW Leadership Summit (New York), UN Commission on the Status of Women, Cross-Cultural Understanding Conference (Cairo), Cairo Women’s Empowerment Summit, Global Summit of Women (Sao Paulo), and B2B Milan Expo BPW event.

In Hong Kong earlier this month, the new chapter of BPW Hong Kong held its formative meeting and is now well on the way to official establishment, anticipated in September. Dr Anne was elected as its President (pro tem), complemented by a full 9-member ExCo.

This week Dr Anne is on Jeju Island, supporting a Hong Kong colleague by providing a round of local introductions, for the purpose of building a retreat center on Jeju! At the same time, she supports a colleague from Canada who is designing her own 3-month research project of Jeju, a Denmark-Korean adoptee seeking her shamanic roots, and a US composer studying traditional music of Korea.

Next week, Dr Anne will join two colleagues to attend the NGO UNESCO “Rapprochement of Cultures” forum in Beijing, where – as a member of BPW International – she will co-facilitate a workshop on peace & intercultural understanding, and – as Honorary Ambassador of Jeju Island – will provide UNESCO officials and affiliate NGO representatives with her books on Jeju ‘s indigenous free-diving women.

Amid all this activity, Dr Anne continues to write and publish; currently, she is developing an article for none other than NatGeo Traveller Australia/New Zealand, on the mystical indigenous women’s culture of Jeju Island — free-divers, shamans, goddesses, and more! Jeju Government has also recently invited Dr Anne to remain as Honorary Ambassador for a second consecutive 2-year term, extended through 2018.

August is lining up to be a transitional month, as Dr Anne wraps up her current research on Jeju Island and returns to Hong Kong to take up full-time residence once more. Beginning in September, she will affiliate with the interdisciplinary practice of Dr Susan Jamieson & Associates (Central), where she will maintain a part-time practice in integrative psychology.
