Wellness Underground has seemed to develop our own way to use some words and somewhat altered or changed their meaning to fit in with our workshop, experience and events. There we go again, doing something out of the box! Some of these words are legit and real, actually all of them are legitimate words or acronyms, some of the definitions on the other hand may be made up, fun, yet very applicable. We wanted to highlight a few of our favorites as well as define them and what they mean to us and specifically in the context of our upcoming event, A People Movement, that is taking place in February of this coming year.
If you’ve been to a previous Wellness Underground Workshop, are there any other words or terms that you would like to add to the list and define them from your experience at the workshop? If so, add them in the comments below! They can be legit or silly...because silly has its place and laughter is necessary.
