“Moving from Anxiety to Optimal Wellness” Saturday May 9th, 9-Noon Cost: $15.00 Keynote: L. Read Sulik, MD, Chief Integration Officer at PrairieCare -A U of M Medical School Affiliate An interactive workshop which includes the Youth Advisory Panel from PACER Center. Participants will come to understand the Fight, Flight and Freeze response and how chronic stress, trauma and anxiety can lead to systemic health as well as severe cognitive, emotional and behavioral problems. Dr. Sulik’s teaching through stories and examples will help participants understand how individuals with anxiety are so easily misinterpreted, misunderstood and misdiagnosed. Dr. Sulik will review approaches to prepare an individual to change the conditioned patterns that often develop as a result of chronic anxiety and will introduce a framework for a personal health and wellness transformation he uses in his work with patients. Resources will be available.

Welcome!

Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice.   And the God of peace will be with you. Philippians 4:9 (NIV)

 At Mount Olivet, adult learning opportunities are all about life-long faith exploration and growth.  We want to help you draw nearer to God by discovering new insights from the Bible and exploring relevant religious topics.  We are here to help you transfer that learning into action with spiritual practices that deepen your relationship with God and invite God's peace into your daily life.  When we learn more about our faith and apply it to our lives, we are on the way to Believing more deeply in Jesus Christ, Belonging more purposefully to the community of Christ, and Becoming more intentionally like Christ.

Whether you attend a series of classes at one of our campuses, join a small study group that meets away from church, or explore our online resources, we pray that you will discover questions, Scripture, and insights that allow the Holy Spirit to deepen your faith and your growth as a Christian.

This is an area to describe the details of the event. Or you could have any information in here really, it just doesn't matter all that much. But the real test of an area like this is how much text it can actually hold. I mean, surely there must be limits. Right? Well if there are we sould probably display a Link Style.
