Spirit Room’s Why:
To be a fully developed human being, we each need to have a sense of well- being, tools to create well-being, and a creative outlet to share with others. The Spirit Room divides programming into the three primary components but, many times they overlap. Creative programming includes gallery exhibits, literary events, humanities & musical events, and dance. Contemplative programming includes mind-body wellness classes, workshops, a book club, and retreats aimed to uplift the individual and develop heightened awareness of the present. Regarding the overlap in the components of our mission, you might regard painting or writing, for instance, as contemplative art too. Healing arts such as massage, healing touch, and counseling contribute to the well- being of the whole person enabling relaxation and a sense of gratitude to become incorporated into the fabric of life.
