January 29, 2012

The LESS is MORE wellness series continues at 2 p.m. Feb. 8 in the Celebration Center at Friendship Haven, 420 Kenyon Road, with the focus shifting to spiritual wellness.

This free educational series is intended to explore each of the six dimensions of health in depth and to help seniors explore and embrace healthy aging. The programs are free and open to the public with no reservations required.

Of the six dimensions of health, spiritual wellness often seems to be the most misunderstood, according to a press release from Friendship Haven: "Put simply, spiritual wellness encompasses one's ethics, values, and code of living and allows one to learn how to experience love and fulfillment."

Steve Roe, executive director of the Beacon of Hope Men's Shelter, will share how the Beacon of Hope reaches out to men who are homeless, hungry and/or in need of hope. By demonstrating the Grace of Christ through food, shelter, clothing and the Word of God, the shelter provides a healing ministry to those who enter as well as those who serve at the shelter, says Roe.

The series is a cooperative endeavor between Elderbridge Agency on Aging, Foster Grandparent Program, Friendship Haven, Iowa Central Community College, Iowa State University Extension, and Trinity Healthy Living - Health Partners at TRMC. For more information, contact any of the sponsors.

Any program in the series may be cancelled due to inclement weather. If the schools are closed, or close early due to the weather, the program will be canceled and rescheduled.
