SeolNal Cerebration - Second Event / Feb. 21st

Dear All InKAS Members,

Thank you everyone for showing lots of interest and support for our New Year Celebration on February 18th. You are always welcomed to our future events if unable to attend this time. All our events are designed to introduce a new angle of understanding Korean culture as well as an opportunity for adoptees to connect with the mainstream Korean community.

Unlike our previous years, InKAS will have two different Korean New Year celebrations (Seol-Nal) in the same week.

In collaboration with the “Korea Rotary Club” we prepared lunch and other traditional events at the “Korean House Restaurant” located close to Chungmuro Station. This restaurant is known for its Hanok estates, which adds to the classic Korean vibe of culture and traditional depth.

A true Seol-Nal holiday significance is found in the way family elders bless to younger generations. To introduce these values of blessing to the adoptees and adoptive families living in Korea throughhospitality, InKAS and the Rotary Club have prepared an excellent traditional meal.

*** You may attend both the Guesthouse celebration on the 18th and also attend the “Korea House” celebration on the 21st

Free Korean traditional medicine consultations

InKAS in collaboration with the Association of Korean Medicine (KOMSTA), will be providing free Korean traditional medicine consultations once a month to Korean adoptees in Korea. Doctors from the association will be present to consult with during these times.

Korean traditional medicine focuses more on treating the individual as a whole, instead of just one aspect, or ailment. It can be used to ...treat current ailments, as well as for preventative measures. Common treatments using Korean traditional medicine, include acupuncture, herbal remedies and aromatherapy.

If you're interested in getting a consultation please stop by the InKAS guesthouse on Sunday, Feb 15th, from 1:30pm to 3:00pm. You must be there by 2.30pm to receive a consultation. The doctors will be giving an overview of Korean traditional medicine so participants can have a better understanding before receiving treatment.

PLEASE RSVP BY EMAIL contact@inkas.org. The consultation is free, but we like to know how many people are attending.

This consultation is great for those suffering from ailments such as migraines, back ache, exhaustion, depression, digestion problems, etc. During the consultation, a doctor will diagnose your problem, suggest treatment options (acupuncture and herbal medication can be given that day for free), and give referrals to make additional appointments (discounts are available for additional treatment outside that day).

DON'T FORGET TO RSVP, THANK YOU!
