LIVING COMPASS WELLNESS CIRCLE BEING FORMED

Are you interested in examining and improving Wellness and Wholeness in all aspects of your life—heart, soul, mind and strength?  If this sounds interesting, consider joining the inaugural Wellness Circle at St. Peter’s.

Want more information?

A Living Compass Wellness Circle is composed of between 5 and 7 participants.  The Circle meets for six weeks to assist its participants in making the changes each decides is right for them. The program is a combination of education, spiritual guidance, and life coaching that maximizes individual success in making positive changes.

And, here is a summary of the program:

Session 1.  Whole-Person Wellness:  How Everything is Connected.  In the first session, participants will reflect on their whole-person wellness using the Living Compass Self-Assessment tool.  Participants will also choose a spiritual practice and a wisdom quote to support them on their Journey of Growth and Change.

Session 2.  Whatever You Pay Attention to is What Will Grow.  Research shows that 50-70% of all doctor visits are rooted in non-medical causes.  You will learn about the wellness continuum and how to pay attention to what you need to pay attention to.

Section 3.  Change is Inevitable.  Growth is Optional. You will learn how to turn change into growth in this session.  Participants will report on how their journey is going and receive support from the facilitators and the group.

Session 4.  Trust the Wisdom of the “J” Curve. You will learn how to overcome the most common reason people are not successful in their attempts to grow and change.  Participants will receive continued support from the group.

Session 5. Systemic Dynamics and Change.  You will learn how your growth impacts all the other systems in your life.  Participants receive continued support from the group.

Session 6. All Shall Be Well. Participants celebrate their gains and share plans for continued growth.
