Culinary Arts and Meal Preparation
The benefit of this popular Wednesday group is to learn simple meal preparations that are healthy, delicious, and inexpensive. Call on Tuesday to let us know you’re coming. Providing a helping hand is required to eat!
Each week Connections transports interested members to join the community for lunch at St. John’s Church, and provides an opportunity for members to enjoy a meal prepared by caring community volunteers, to meet their neighbors, and make new friends.
Each week we consider relevant nutrition topics. Learn to easily prepare healthy foods to improve your physical, emotional, and mental health. We cover a new topic weekly, ranging from how to improve your relationship with food to cooking new and delicious recipes.
Stress Management – A Key to Health and Wellbeing
What can you do to manage everyday stress and anxiety, before it negatively impacts your everyday activities and responsibilities? We’ll explore neuroscience, meditation, better eating habits, the importance of mindfulness. We’ll also use this opportunity to challenge our beliefs, often unconscious ones, as well as the role trauma plays in triggering anxiety and severe stress.
Stretch, Balance & Strength
Members will practice simple exercises to improve flexibility and balance as well as strengthen the muscles needed to keep us moving and independent in the years to come. We accommodate all ages and all physical ability levels.
Whole Health Action Management (WHAM)
This 8-week course is about your goals. After you write your Whole Life goal, you will create and log a weekly action plan, support each other in attaining your goals, learn ways to encourage positive thinking, and work towards finding meaning and purpose in your life.
Wellness Recovery Action Planning for Smoking Cessation
Offered annually during the Great American Smokeout in November, trying to quit smoking is a challenge. But those who keep trying eventually kick the habit. Not only will your health improve, but also your finances and mental clarity. Join this group and begin to cut down every day, every week, until you no longer smoke at all. Let’s move toward this goal together.
