Faith Lutheran Church is hosting a free Wholeness Day on from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.on Earth Day, April 22, at the church at 1115 Combie Road, Meadow Vista.

A full schedule of 40-minute mini-sessions will be offered throughout the morning, focusing on personal, community and environmental well-being. Participants will be able to choose from a variety of offerings. Activities and care for children will be provided as well. Bring the whole family!

The church believes that people are continually called to seek ways of becoming more deeply connected to themselves, their neighbors and their world. Through these connections, people grow more whole as individuals and become better able to help others grow, heal, and become whole.

— Joan Stockbridge: The Breath Prayer. Learn about and practice this ancient prayer technique. Used for centuries, it is an accessible and practical tool for increasing inner peace. Joan is a spiritual director and retreat and workshop leader.

— Mike Mulligan: Mike will lead folks on a walk through creation as he helps participants explore wholeness through improving their physical health with exercise.

— Julie Hettig: Join Julie in an experience of prayer and mindful walking through the labyrinth, an ancient meditation tool used to “circle to the center” of wholeness.

— Jessica Del Pozo: Jessica will focus on finding wholeness through the discipline of Qigong, an ancient Chinese health care system that integrates gentle movement, breathing techniques and focused intention.

— Danielle Mills and Carlos Del Pozo: Wholeness of self requires a connection to all things living. Carlos and Danielle will offer a time of caring for creation as a stepping stone to the healing of the world.

— Marc Duarte and Colleen Hogan: Colleen and Marc will present a mini service fair highlighting local service programs. Turn compassion into action, volunteer!

— Cam Bennett: Children’s activities and care.

— Kathy Van Zuuk: Kathy will present the benefits of being outdoors and information about native and non-native vegetation and offer suggestions for gardening.

— Ann Linkugel: Mandalas are Indian symbols of wholeness. Ann will offer a time of exploration into key aspects of wholeness as each person creates a simple mandala symbolizing a journey of exploration and discovery towards personal growth in wellness and spirituality.

— Lynette Beadles: Caregiving is a gift to both the giver and receiver. Unfortunately, the caregiver often gives until he or she begins to feel fractured. Join Lynette in seeking ways to find wholeness of mind and spirit in the vocation of giving care.

— Meadow Vista Friendly Neighbors — Sharon Bradford: Spend some time getting to know the Friendly Neighbors and what they do to help our community. There will also be an opportunity for hands-on help in the work of the Friendly Neighbors.

— Foothill Roots Farm — Patrick Bollinger: Patrick is co-owner of Foothill Roots Farm. He will present during the first session on local and organic foods. He says, “Community is at the core of our farm.”
