    A WAKE UP CALL from today’s pandemic!

    There is no way around it, we’re living through scary times. Uncertainty, constant change and unprecedented challenges are generating panic across the world.

    It is easy to get caught up in the mayhem, easy and completely understandable. However, what if we were to all, collectively, take a step back and look at the circumstances not from a victim’s perspective, but as someone eager to understand why all of this is happening? Perhaps, there is positivity to be found within the chaos?

    Science and practice show that in order to combat a virus, we need to boost our immune systems and our mental health. A low immune system is often the result of inflammation which, in turn, is often caused by an internal acidic environment. Such an environment can be the by-product of a diet excessive in sugar, processed food and dairy products. It can also be caused, and made all the worse, by negative thoughts and emotions. Perhaps today’s Coronavirus is giving us an opportunity to focus on our health and give our immune systems the attention they deserve!

    Perhaps it is a Wake Up Call, calling to us to realize the actual state of our collective health. In today’s fight for our wellbeing there are, globally speaking, two strategies:

    Short term strategy: immediate steps to support our bodies and minds throughout the period of pandemic

    Longer term strategy: lasting changes that will support us for a future and equip us against viruses and infections to come.

    Join us to take part in a discussion about which practical options we have to gain a healthy immune system. Nutritional therapy, energy therapy, emotional and biochemical balances, tune in to discover which approach could work for you. During this discussion we will:

    address the question of immunity from a variety of different angles

    introduce to you two tests that can help you assess your immune system

    equip you with handy and easy to use tools in order to strengthen your immune system right away.

    The hosts of this exciting webinar will be:

    Irina Schurov, PHD, a Nutritional Neuroscientist with over 20 years’ experience in science and health providing services, founder of LiveRight, an initiative to help others through nutrition and wellbeing strategies, personalised coaching in nutrition, with the goal to achieve the optimal balance in life. She especially focuses on neurological conditions and mental disorders by addressing the connection between the gut and brain by detoxifying, nourishing and resetting the entire body’s biochemical balance. Irina offers an individual DNA nourishing programme and personalised nutritional support in order to achieve long-lasting positive changes.

    Masha Muzyrya, founder of Mashala, a Holistic coach and Energy therapist who accompanies individuals in their search for their true path and the ability to let their talents shine. As a holistic coach, Masha helps individuals discover the resources to solve difficult life situations and find emotional stability and harmony from within, using teachings based on the “Rebirthing” breathing technique, QI-gong and an evolutional symbiotic practice “Svarga”.

    Let us support each other during this difficult period and try to find something good among the challenges of today!


    We look forward to welcoming you!

    The OWIT Lake Geneva Team

    Feeling festive? Come and celebrate with us the end of the year and reflect on your 2020 achievements!

    This time around the Afterwork will have a Christmas Twist. The objective of this edition is to make you think about your main 2020 professional or personal achievement

    We are playing Secret Santa and exchange small gifts that have a connection with your 2020 professional or personal achievements. Please bring a small wrapped gift together with a short inspirational message. Once the gift is drawn and unwrapped you would be asked to present it to the other participants and share the success story behind it. 

    The rules of the game will be further explained during the evening. The maximum value of the gift should be 10 CHF.

    Come and join us and have fun!
