Mind, Body, Spirit

Fulfilling the mind, body and spirit with meaningful activities, healthy pursuits and adequate reflection helps create a harmonious sense of well being and feeling of centeredness. For some Garlands members this connection involves Bible study or exploring the various religions of the world . . . others find their peace through gardening, yoga or quiet meditation . . . and for many service and volunteerism is like a prayer. The Garlands invites you to engage in a variety of activities and opportunities that make for a well-grounded you!
