Event Series Event Series: Wellness Hour (Virtual Meeting)

Mar 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

5:00 pm ET | 4:00 pm CT | 3:00 pm MT | 2:00 pm PT

This month, we welcome Isaac and Ora Prilleltensky, who literally wrote the book on How People Matter. Ora is a regular moderator for the Wellness Hour. Her husband Isaac has presented several webinars on mental health and well-being. “Mattering” is a fundamental human need,” they assert. They define mattering as the feeling that you are valued, and that you are adding value. This perception can shift as one’s physical abilities and role in the world change due to conditions like FSHD. What have been your experiences, and how does one reclaim a sense of mattering? Our Wellness Hour is a supportive, safe space in which to share our stories.

Our monthly Zoom meeting on Wellness is held on the second Monday of each month at 5:00-6:00 pm ET. Each month, we’ll have a conversation starter topic, but this is an informal gathering and if the discussion veers off in other directions, that’s OK! We hope you’ll drop by to enjoy the company of some of the wonderful people in our community.

We will open the Zoom room a half hour early (4:30 pm ET) so members can enjoy an open forum to discuss whatever is on their minds. Rick Whitehead will be on hand to welcome you in. Wellness Hour has become such a popular destination and we never have enough time for everyone to share what’s on their minds, so we thought we’d try this approach.

If you are interested, please register by clicking on the link below. You only need to register once for the monthly series. You’ll receive notifications from Zoom with the meeting information.
