2024 theme: Balancing Your Four Directions
The theme was Balancing Your Four Directions, focused on the pursuit of wellness by engaging in activities that promote self-care in the spiritual, emotional, physical and intellectual dimensions. This theme emphasized the importance of finding equilibrium and well-being in the face of ongoing challenges in today's contemporary world.
