Short Bio: I am Julie Wright, the Chief Sleep Orchestrator and founder of WeSleep, my aim is to help people live better lives by improving their sleep. My motto is: Sleep more, Live more.
I have battled with sleep issues for almost 12 years, and embarked on a journey full of discoveries and experiments to tackle this. It gave me the idea to help myself and others with the issue of insomnia and poor sleep quality, as a powerful and meaningful ambition.
Our WeSleep events are small-scale learning and discovery workshops on the topic of sleep and the lack of sleep taking place in various locations for the general public and also at businesses and corporations around London.
We want to help anyone improve their sleep through education, inspiration and experimentation. It’s about being inspired from a wide range of perspectives, modern and ancient times, from other cultures, remedies and studies. We offer an opportunity to pause, reflect, try new things, take a break, recharge. And walk away with a personal sleep strategy.
Our educational format includes interactive workshops with talks, exercises, demonstrations, practical tips and take-aways, with the occasional use of worksheets, videos and other tools.
