Bubbles and Buddha

brought to you by two besties trying to do good

Finding the time and energy to take care of our bodies, mind, spirit, and emotional needs while juggling the demands of an *extremely stressful career, and the needs of family and friends can be daunting.

Our goal is to bring together the event marketing community, of which we’ve been members for 20+ years, to share wellness resources, community stories, and provide encouragement and inspiration on your individual wellness journey.

Bubbles and Buddha is a passion project of event marketing veterans, Laurie Sharp and Alison Regenold. 

Seynabou Cisse is a Senior Events Manager at Dell Industries, where she plans exciting incentive event experiences around the world.

Born in France, Seynabou spent 15 years in the U.S. where she earned her MBA from the University of Missouri. She started her event marketing career as a TD (travel director) and experienced life on the road - long hours, late nights, and high stress.  

After experiencing health issues, she evaluated her lifestyle and incorporated wellness into her everyday life. She became more attuned to her body, slowed down when it guided her to do so, maintained a regular meditation practice, ate a nourishing diet, reduced alcohol consumption, and prioritized self-care. She achieved equilibrium and regulation of her thyroid health in a way that prevented the need for surgical intervention. Through holistic self-management, she minimized health complications and created balance.

Seynabou is also known as Liorah. She is a global citizen, intuitive guide, and soul-purpose catalyst. Though Seynabou has always been intuitive, she did not know how to harness her gifts until a life-changing soul-purpose reading, quantum leaped her into stepping into her true purpose.  

She currently lives in London and loves that she is fully living her passion, planning incentives, and catalyzing people on their soul-purpose journey.

Seynabou, as Liorah, helps clients around the world discover and ignite their purpose through spiritual coaching and intuitive readings. With certifications as a Quantum Creation Oracle and as a Soul Transformation Therapist, she blends intuitive gifts with various modalities to help clients align with their highest potential.

With diverse life and work experiences across three continents, Seynabou is a driven and inspirational woman who loves empowering people to achieve their dreams.

We have been incorporating health and wellness into our events for years, and it’s so wonderful to see that it is officially a trend as our event community is now making an effort to bring inspirational calm to their attendees experiences. Providing quiet space to meditate and reflect, offering early morning activities to kick start the day, incorporating meditation into the actual keynote/breakout agenda, and bringing in professionals to lead health-based activities can be one of the most valuable inclusions to your event.

We welcome back one of our favorite healers - 
On a heart-based mission to spread love and harmony worldwide, Lisa Rueff leads with her heart and inspires others to do the same with her joyful, motivating approach to life. As a Multi-Faceted Entrepreneur, Sound Healer, Breath-Work Instructor, Yoga and Meditation Teacher, Event Producer, Wellness Expert, Life and Business Coach, and Psychedelic Journey Guide, — she is known for orchestrating heart-opening events and transformative experiences.

If you are looking to create a nourishing and enriching experience at a future event, look no further than a Sound Bath. As you relax and feel enveloped in bliss, you simultaneously optimize your well-being on a rejuvenating journey through the healing art of sound. An acoustic Sound Healing Journey calms your central nervous system, clears your subconscious, relaxes your mind, and activates your body's natural healing systems. Just show up and let the nurturing vibrations, frequencies, sounds, and harmonies wash away stress and all that no longer serves you, creating spaciousness for what it is you desire to bring in, leading to a renewed sense of vitality and calibration within.

Lisa uses a wide variety of ancient sound healing instruments, including Crystal and Tibetan singing bowls, Frame Drums, and Gong Koshi Chimes, to guide you into a deep state of blissful relaxation and transcendental meditation that will vibrate and activate every cell in your body, leaving you feeling refreshed and recalibrated. 

To learn more, you can contact Lisa directly at 415.297.1944, www.lisarueff.com, or lisa@collectivhearts.co. She looks forward to speaking with you!

When it comes to skincare, luxury products from prestige brands promise results but often come with a hefty price tag. Many beauty experts and dermatologists agree that beauty products don’t have to cost a fortune to work. In fact, replicas, which are lower-priced beauty products with the same formulations and ingredients as originals, can produce similar or even better results than originals. Same Skincare has launched its first line of luxury beauty replicas, proving that replicas can perform just as well as prestige products from luxury brands at a fraction of the cost. 

Also known as dupes or generics, replicas are skincare products made with similar ingredients and properties to other more popular and well-known products. Replicas help skincare lovers find alternatives to products that are too expensive or overhyped, making quality skincare available to more people by lowering the price. 
Same Skincare’s replicas cost half the price of the originals. Moreover, unlike the originals, the brand’s replicas are all-natural and formulated with certified organic ingredients.The company has also innovated in the beauty space, creating blended replicas, which take two or more great products and blend them into one powerhouse product - giving even more bang for your buck.

Created by tech professionals-turned-beauty entrepreneurs Sasha Basso and Elle Shelley Black, Same Skincare aims to democratize skincare by making great products at lower prices. Even better, they have generously offered a
