Free Monthly Wellness Support Group
October 20 – Free Monthly Prevention and Healing Support Group. This month’s Speaker: Rev Phylis Clay Sparks. Topic: Disease and the Mind. Join us as we take a closer look at the mind-body link that was traditionally recognized in ancient philosophies and tribal medicine until the nineteenth century. When technological medicine replaced traditional philosophies, it neglected the need to consider the patient’s mind and emotional state, thus ignoring influences of grief, despair, and discouragement in the onset and outcome of illness. We will discuss ways to become aware of our personal responsibility and the role we play in preventing dis-ease, manifesting health, and sustaining a sense of joy. Don’t miss the practical and positive suggestions and guidance about the healing effects of faith, confidence, and peace of mind that you can put to work on your own journey of wholeness and well-being! Support Group Leaders: Dr. Simon Yu, M.D. and Chaplain Paul R. Johnson, M.Div.
