“Spirituality and Wellness”

Thursday, June 18, 2015

We often talk of healing Body, Mind and Spirit. In Western culture we have a good idea of what it means to heal the body with traditional medicine. We also have some good ideas and tools for healing the Mind. What we sometimes lack is an understanding of what it means to heal the Spirit. This talk will explore ways in which we can heal our Spirit and why it is important to do so. Be prepared to share your own thoughts and experiences.

  • Speaker: James Donnelly
    Licensed Psychologist
