Wellness in the Bedroom: Sex, Sleep & CBD at Energi with @ChinaeAlexander, @carakovacs_ & @berylaliza | NYC August 7
Join us for an intimate lecture with Chinae Alexander, Cara Kovacs, a NYC-based Sex, Love & Relationship Coach, and Beryl Solomon, the CEO of Poplar. We'll discuss how wellness pertains to nighttime activities: sex and sleep. Chinae will interview Cara and Beryl about sex and sex therapy, how to have healthy sex, and how sex life and wellness are intertwined. We'll also learn how CBD can be utilized in both sex and sleep.
Meet Chinae: Former Texan-turned-New Yorker, Chinae Alexander is an entrepreneur, lifestyle personality, writer, speaker, and wellness expert based in Brooklyn, New York. Her message is to empower people to be better through positive thinking, active change, self-love. In addition to talking about her deep inner dislike of kale publicly in front of thousands on the internet, Chinae has a YouTube channel, is in the first stages of her first book, and just launched your soon-to-be favorite podcast, Press Send. Chinae was named Adidas's global brand ambassador for 2016 through 2018, and was recently featured exuding and inspiring confidence in Women's Health Magazine and the Today Show. In addition to partnering with leading brands such as Elizabeth Arden, Hyatt Hotel Group, Sephora, Fossil and Dove, Chinae recently held a principal role in a TV and Digital ad for well known haircare brand, Pantene.
Meet Cara: Cara Kovacs is a third generation healer and Sex, Love & Relationship coach. Named as 2019’s one of “35 People Under 35 To Watch In Wellness” by Wanderlust, she combines modern science with ancient healing and spiritual philosophy to help bring people to truth through love. As a guide to sacred sexuality and knowledge of self, Cara creates space for MAGIC that you can feel is true in your very core. Her practice is inspired by the sovereign right of each human to have ownership of their desire in a way that feels as empowering as it is enlightening. Her monthly lunar club, Moon Crew, meets for magic-making and ritual in NYC on each full moon. She teaches internationally, and sees clients in person and online.
Meet Beryl: Beryl Solomon is the founder and CEO of Poplar, a modern wellness destination that curates the best in CBD and cannabis products. After 15 years of working in the corporate world for large fashion companies, Beryl took a step into the start-up space to challenge herself even further. Beryl teamed up with long time friends and STATE Bags founders to scale the one-for-one backpack business; under her leadership, revenue grew more than 100% YoY. With a keen sense in business development and an interest in the CBD and cannabis markets, Beryl discovered a major void in product education and launched Poplar in late 2018. What started as a passion project, Beryl immediately transformed into a lucrative, digital platform that not only provided insight to the “canna-curious,” but offers curated CBD products with expert insights on how they work, what they do, and ultimately, how it will benefit specific health and wellness needs.

We will provide a full refund up to 24 hours in advance of the event. Within 24 hours, we will credit your account which can be used towards payment for a future event.
I don’t know anyone, can I come alone?
Yes, absolutely! We hope you are never deterred by not having a friend to accompany you. The purpose of these events is to meet like-minded people, and we will kick off every event with a mini icebreaker game to make sure you know at least one friendly face in the crowd.
What time will the event actually start?
We will open the doors promptly at the time the event is called for. If arriving early - we appreciate punctuality - we may ask you to hang tight while we finish setting up the beautiful event space!
I’m held up with another obligation and running late, is that ok?
Yes, feel free to come at any time, and we will ensure there is still a swag bag for you. If you’re running late, we cannot guarantee that all of the on-site brands will have samples and food left, however. People get hungry -- what can we say!
What’s in the swag bag?
Telling you would ruin the surprise! But we like to vary it every time to ensure that you’re getting access to the best products in the wellness space and helping you discover new brands we think you’ll love!
I have an allergy, can I be accommodated?
We always make an effort to accommodate as many allergies as possible, and list all allergies that are “safe” in the food at the event. However, if you’re concerned feel free to email us at email@example.com.
