Our Essential Wellness website is now updated, simplified, and easily accessible! Please visit.

With this issue, our old "Celebrate Wellness" becomes "essential events." During the coming months we intend to update the format of this e-newsletter as well so watch for changes.

February is the time of year to contemplate the seeds we will plant in the spring. We look through garden catalogs to find the colors and textures we envision in our yards. As outward, so inward. What do we wish to enhance or create anew in our lives? A good time to ponder while the snow nourishes our seedbeds.

The Writing of Embodying Soul: A Return to Wholeness—A Memoir of New Beginnings
By Keri Mangis
Every new beginning provides a rich opportunity for healing and personal evolution.

WHEN I BEGAN this book six years ago (coming February 2020), I was in a place in my life we in the spiritual community often call a Dark Night of the Soul. Several ventures of mine had ended abruptly, and I wasn’t sure what was next. I felt I understood what my skills and strengths were, but I couldn’t find a way to put them to use in the world in a way that would be recognizable to others (i.e., safe) as well as satisfying to me. Plus, I was tired of trying so hard, and making (seemingly) no progress. I was having an identity crisis (isn’t this what all mid-life crises are at the core?)
