Wellness or well-being refers to the state of our mind, body and spirit. As defined by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, “Wellness has several dimensions, including emotional well-being (coping effectively with life and creating satisfying relationships) and physical wellbeing (recognizing the need for physical activity, healthy foods, and sleep).” At C3I, we aim to discover how the invisible struggles of our lives such as but not limited to stress, mental health concerns, trauma, loneliness and addiction affect our communities and the congregations serving them.
Questions that congregations may be asking
- What does it look like for congregations to cultivate a culture of wellness in their communities?
- How can we walk alongside our congregants as they strive towards wellness?
