Are you well, wise and whole?

Eastern Adirondack Health Care Network and Clinton County Office for the Aging are sponsoring a Well, Wise and Whole event on Tuesday, Aug. 12 at 9 a.m. at the State University of New York at Plattsburgh Angell Center Ballroom. The focus of the days activities will be on the tools every person needs to live a full, enriching and spiritually meaningful life at every age. Healthy aging embraces the essential connection of body, mind and spirit. Keynote speaker, Richard P. Johnson, Ph.D. is the former president of the American Association for Adult Development and Aging and a nationally recognized spokesperson in the field of adult development and Spiritual Gerontology. According to Johnson, Every person has special, unique, and personal strength that supply us with the vitalizing growth-energy we need to run our lives healthfully, so we can live fully and in peace. Achieving lifelong wellness: Wellness has clear attitudinal qualities; its not simply the absence of disease. Health is a very personal thing, a state of thriving, not simply surviving. Wellness means adding life to your years, not simply years to your life! Mastering the art of living wisely: Being wise means the lifelong faith learner has developed methods for approaching life that allows her or him to think clearly, accurately, and rationally about themselves and about others, and consequently able to make wise life decisions. Discovering the pathways to wholeness: Wholeness refers to a state of personal integration: optimal spirituality and health. When a person is whole, she or he has personal integrity; all the pieces of their life are cohesively held together by unifying principles. The cost for the day is $7(includes lunch). Registration deadline is Aug. 1, so call Michelle at 564-4322 to request a form. The Senior Connection is a column provided by the Clinton County Office for the Aging.
