About this “In Pursuit of Wellness” Series

Produced for the Global Wellness Institute (GWI) by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions

Core to the pursuit of wellness is a desire to better care for our communities, our spaces and ourselves – and this is something interpreted and embraced in different ways in different places around the world.

Through human-led stories, this series collates experiences and skills from across the globe, with lessons that teach us how to care for our families, friends and communities, as well as caring for ourselves. With stories of retreats inspired by the natural environment in Koh Samui, Thailand, and in Greater Palm Springs, USA, to community-based care that’s helping with mental health and growing skills in Calgary, Canada and in Mabona, Uganda, this series brings together unique stories from wellness around the world and celebrates the core values that link these stories, of what it means to be well.

These are the stories of the people bringing established and known wellness practices into our dynamic and ever-changing world. How will you put your wellness first today?

This is the second set of films in the “In Pursuit of Wellness” series produced by BBC StoryWorks Commercial Productions. Watch the award-winning first season of the “In Pursuit of Wellness” series here.
