Mission Statement

The Healing WELL offers calm in the storms of poverty and prejudice, mental illness, substance abuse and addiction. Inspired by the ideals of compassion and justice, we love and guide one another so we can step into brighter futures, healing ourselves and our greater community.

Description

The most common question we hear is: "You’re teaching yoga and poetry to homeless and poor people? Shouldn’t you be focused on helping them find housing, secure jobs and complete their education?" The answer is, "We are." Until and unless people are mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually able to cope with the challenges of their everyday lives, and there are sufficient resources to address long-standing community needs, these goals are unattainable. At The Healing WELL, we offer evidence-based best practices to promote wellness for all people.

Our programming is designed to tend to body, mind and spirit and includes:

  • Movement

  • Mindfulness and contemplative practices

  • Creative arts appreciation and expression

  • Physical fitness and healthy eating

  • Social support
