Health Care

No matter what people might say, we’re all a little bit superstitious when it comes to keeping ourselves healthy. We believe in little things, from apples keeping doctors away to wearing the same underwear every game to help our team win the series (OK, maybe that one has nothing to do with health). Odds are, even our skeptical readers lie somewhere along this spectrum. So why not open your mind a little wider and head out to the “Holistic Globe Healing Arts Conference & Exhibit” from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Marriott Renaissance in downtown Fort Lauderdale? There will be yoga, tai chi, and a healthy food lounge for those interested in physical purity. And those wishing for a more spiritual experience will enjoy the Spiritual Poetry and the Sacred Altar and Healing Room or attending the Energy Party. (We assume an energy party is something you have to experience to explain.) After listening to speakers in the Wisdom Lounge, you can join in the Reiki Healing Circle. It’s guaranteed to be a New Agey good time for all. This spiritual spectacle will cost you $15 at the Marriott Renaissance (1617 SE 17th St., Fort Lauderdale).

KEEP NEW TIMES BROWARD-PALM BEACH FREE... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
