Hi, I am Dr. Omileye. I had a vision to start an award that honored those contributing to building a mindful Earth. My husband Chief Olu Derrick Lewis said, "yes, I am on board". Many years ago, the state of the waters moved us to begin the International Humanity4Water Awards - given to those such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Captain Paul Watson, Rev Desmond Tutu.
This award recognizes that the individual and Earth are connected. It aims to honor those who are working to mindfully care for our Earth, by introducing mindful living to communities, which nurtures a sense of mindful stewardship, compassion, equity, oneness, and care. We specifically aim to honor who those who show us courage and small acts make big changes.
As part of the award we recognize when we change ourselves, we change our world. Therefore, we aim to have programs and partnerships that introduce mindfulness and wellness into vulnerable communities, whose needs often go unnoticed. Dr. Omileye started what is now called, The Mindful Earth Acupuncture and Wellness Pilot 501c Program for BIPOC Women and children.
When you CHANGE yourself
you CAN CHANGE the world
MINDFUL EARTH ACUPUNCTURE & WELLNESS
FOR BIPOC WOMEN AND KIDS
I started Mindful Earth Acupuncture & Wellness Pilot Program for BIPOC Woman and Children, when I was a student acupuncture student. I knew three consecutive acupuncture treatments could pull a client back from the edge of stress, but I knew such treatments were often not affordable to women and children who looked like me.
