The theme of the day is to feed your soul, feed others. The day will begin with your arrival and setting intentions for the day and for your life. We will then move into soul feeding with basic Yoga (no experience necessary) led by Pamela O'Brien of Green Leaf Yoga to prepare our bodies and our spirit to receive. We will then participate in an experiential workshop to feed our hearts on Living our Truest Life. We will feed our bodies as a part of a Energy Essential Nutrition--Foods That Help Us Manage Stress workshop led by Dr. Jen Stanley of From Scratch Wellness. A healthy lunch will be served. Then we will feed our minds in the early afternoon with a Soundscape Wellness workshop in order to raise awareness on the effects of sound and music on your personal wellness. We will then discover tools and strategies for choosing your own personal soundscape. In mid-afternoon, we will again feed our souls as we participate in Qigong Moving Meditation led by Dr. Stanley before wrapping up our day together and touring the Food Bank.

Our last Winter Wellness Day filled up early! We'd love to have you!
