Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church is sponsoring “Healthy Living For Body, Mind and Spirit,” part of the on-going "Purposeful Retirement" Program. This information-packed interactive seminar will suggest ways to live a healthy life that involve your mind, body and spirit.

The program will include speakers from the community that will address a variety of topics including sleep issues, exercise, mindful eating, nutrition, and body changes as we age. The focus will be to learn that wellness is multi-dimensional, and balance is needed between all dimensions to be healthy and active social beings.  

  • Patty Crawford, Manager of the Augustana Open Circle Adult Day Care Center in Apple Valley, will present information about how to keep your mind healthy, why it is essential to be socially active, ideas around how our identity changes as we age and how others view us as we age.
  • Lindee Parson, Yoga instructor, will provide information on healthy motion including an opportunity to try a few simple yoga poses.
  • Pastor Maggie Novak will discuss spiritual health and encourage attendees to work on their own personal faith journeys.

Valley Natural Foods in Burnsville will provide a sampling of fun, nutritious snacks and will be on hand to answer your food-related questions.
