The Center for Holistic Living
The Helen & Stuart Over, MD Center for Holistic Living is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to offering educational programs and retreats in the principles of holistic living, with special attention to the issues of aging.
Dr. Over and Mr. Gill wanted the Center to emphasize the importance of a tranquil mind as essential to holistic, healthy living. Stress strongly impacts the body's immune systems and general health, especially in the aging population. In contrast, peace of mind has a dramatically beneficial effect on health, well-being and the experience of joy in life.
Holistic Health Programs, Lectures and Workshops
Our programs and workshops provide the most up to date information on holistic health issues and emphasize:
- An Integrative Approach to Health
- Stress Reduction
- Relaxation through Meditation (individual's choice)
- Managing Age-Related Disabilities
The primary advisor for the Center for Holistic Living's health education programs is Gary E. Foresman, MD, founder of Middle Path Medicine. He is a gifted physician who has practiced Internal Medicine for 20 years and Integrative Medicine for over a decade. Catherine Giumini, MS, PT, is the Director of Programs for lectures and workshops on health. An extraordinary physical therapist with over 30 years experience, she also lectures on many aspects of the physical challenges of aging.
Retreats for Spiritual Unfolding
(according to individualized spiritual needs)
In addition to lectures and workshops, the Center for Holistic Living offers several Retreat Programs led by Ligia Dantes that support the spiritual needs of the individual. These retreat programs promote a calm and tranquil mind that is integral to holistic healthy living.
Organized and operated solely by volunteers, the Center for Holistic Living does not promote any particular philosophy or religious outlook and does not endorse any particular set of beliefs or health practices.
