The Williams Wellness Initiative invites you to begin a pilgrimage toward better health. We will offer the Living Compass course for six Saturdays during February and March. Each lesson will start at 11:00 am and end at 12:00 pm. We will meet in the parish hall.
Living Compass focuses on the interconnectedness of all aspects of our being—heart, soul, strength, and mind—because each aspect affects the others. It is also important to be mindful of your life balance, taking both proactive and preventative actions as your life pushes you to grow and change.
Living Compass is based on the belief that each individual knows what she or she needs to do to become more whole. It is also based on the belief that we cannot be whole by ourselves: our individual journeys require the support and care of others as well. This course will help you name what you probably already know (though may not be aware of) and help you to risk taking the action steps needed to make the changes you truly desire and then enlisting others for that needed support.

The Living Compass curriculum was created by the Rev. Dr. Scott Stoner (an Episcopal priest) and his wife, Holly Hughes Stoner. Visit http://www.livingcompass.org to learn more.
I will teach the course. My bachelor’s degree is in health education and I worked for over 20 years on local, state, and federal wellness programs.
The cost of the course is $5 per person. Each participant will receive a 90-page Living Compass Faith & Wellness Workbook for use during and after the course.
