         There are growing issues with obesity and chronic illness in society that seek to undermine the potentials of enjoying a healthy, long life. Issues such as increased use of prescription medications, lack of physical activity due to increase technology, limited access to whole un processed foods, and unhealthy emotional management have all contributed to these ills.

Establishing a knowledge base on wellness allows for people to better understand and manage the root cause of their illness or be able to prevent it. Optimal Wellness Community (OWC) creates and nurtures communities of wellness.  Using evidence based thought concerning wellness OWC develops, and reinforces healthy habits of wellness in the community. Participants will learn core principles and be able to refer to personal experiences, which will allow for the principle to be more deeply integrated into their everyday living.

OWC’s program consists of Restorative Sessions, Fitting Fitness, a Community Potluck and a Wellness Retreat.
