Are you one of the many adults that have emotional and physical wounds from broken trust and communication bridges with your birth, adoptived, or deliberately selected spouse, a "church family", and the collective "family" of a school, organization, business and community where you grew up, live and/or work?  

Here is a link to many free Intergenerational Family Resources.   Hopefully you can find some good information to help you realize you are not alone and there is help and hope for things to improve.

Coming Sooner than later...the Wellness Weavers classes, courses, events, project in the WOMAN4W(H)EALTH4ALL...the Wellness Oriented Mutual Aid Network for Health, Education, Active Living, Therapeutic Humor for Ageless Lifelong Learners that want to be well and heal, recharge, maintain, or grow brighter with plugging their personal STAR power of Skills, Talents, Attitudes, Resources into The Ad Astra Project!   Click on the offer in green above to help make it sooner than later!
 

Check the link to see if your state has the 211 call center (free to call )  It is a system to help people link with the resources they need.  

 

If you are interested in the health and wellness researched resource links...just scroll down below the photo of "Ms Merry Fitness" and all her messages about stewardship of people and the Earth.

 

Click here if you know a real webmaster that can put these resources into a more usable form.

 

"Ms Merry Fitness" and "the Ghost of Fitness Past" hanging from her ear, holding the future...  a beautiful breast-fed baby being raised in a loving, multigenerational family in a rural community that has connections to the United Methodist's Healthy Congregation in Action program.  

There were a lot of options for families to select to play with...and a lot of messages within all the props on the table.  Can you find the status from Zimbabawa of the Mother holding an infant and the compostible "take out" food box?  What kind of legacy will your generation and community leave for future generations?  What life stories will be told about the values lived by and passed down to others?

The Wellness Weavers program is the growth of all the scholarships that "Ms Merry Fitness" and the "Sister Sue(s)" have received.  Moving to Waterville, Kansas, small rural town in a very historic county offered rich territory with historic buildings being at risk of being torn down.  The local United Methodist Churches have chosen not to get involved with the HCIA or "Transforming Communities for Health" programs.  Thus, we have been stuck in a mirrored reality of judging each other and not being able to make solid headway as a unified team where everyone counts.   How fun and functional is your community?

I am currently connecting with other communities within the Mutual Aid Network that are ahead of me on the learning curve for working in community engagement and social justice programs where everyone counts.  I am hoping  that  within a larger MAN will be those that want to exchange their computer IT and database management skills for what the WOMAN, Wellness Oriented Mutual Aid Network could offer to the Time Bank members that wanted to co-develop the template to apply to their individual worksite, project, or community.

"The world is in our hands.  The only way to predict the future is to create it.  Live your faith in action."

 ~Quote heard from all the "Sister Sues", "The Tooth Fairy", "Cassandra", "Mother Nature"...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Featured sites for the Mental Health issues that the Wellness Weavers "The Ad Astra Project" is addressing: Canadian Social Worker, and President-elect of the Association of Applied and Therapeutic Humor, Maia Aziz, also does her own Morning Moments with Maia radio blog show.  She interviews a variety of people with topics ranging from Stand Up for Mental Health (Comedians with mental health issues) to Building Beyond the Walls (Enabled disabled builders for humanity).  How does that compare to the WHO Mental Health report of 2005?  
How does all that compare to the outcomes that the Kansas Governor's Mental Health Task Force envisioned in their April 2014 Report?

Let's learn from the Parents Support Network of Rhode Island that uses evidence-based programs to help children, parents, and adult survivors of childhood trauma to heal and change the course of their present and future. 

Attention Veterans***  Here is a link to the Virtual HOPE BOX App specifically designed by the military for you!   I am weaving as fast as I can so that you will be able to serve and be served with the best practices for you and your family at home, in your communities or in any of the towns that have the Wellness Weavers Wellness Oriented Mutual Aid Network.  

We are raising funds so that our "Just In Time" App can be developed that will link and MAN-WOMAN member with mental health, physical health, recreation, community projects that honor the Time Dollar system or the Health Bucks of the Wellness Oriented Mutual Aid Network.     If you have skills to help with any of the Community Service-Learning Projects within the WOMAN please fill out this survey.  Helen in your spare time, between looking for all the healthy people willing to divide the labor for the many aspects of the Wellness Weavers paradigm  ...remember to finish survey and add link!

Does your worksite have a wellness program that really addresses what employees need to improve their health.  (That is just one site that I have yet to meet with the people that know about AND enlighten the small Chamber of Commerce's and businesses of all sizes how they can incorporate excellent programs by joining our worker cooperative.  If your business or organization has wellness service providers doing an excellent job for you and your employees, please let us know about your programs so we can strengthen the cultural support for other businesses that have not been able to find solutions yet.)

Wellness Weavers are currently developing the Wellness Oriented Mutual Aid Network Community Service-Learning System with an option to join the Wellness Weavers Worker Health and Wellness Cooperative.  

Wellness Weavers will also have membership levels for businesseses with their own health insurance plan once we have the Founders Council that has connections that represent all stakeholder levels:  Individuals-families-senior citizens-Veterans-businesses-organizations-communities-agencies that advocate for healthy people and communities-health insurance providers-health and wellness disciplines-foundations-law makers.   

All membership levels will allow anyone to supplement their existing health insurance plan with an expanded way to be happy and healthy and engaged in service and learning.  We are all the center of our plan and we can serve and learn with our friends and family...as we are all served in ways that support our health and wellness.

If we do not take care of the Garden we live in...where will we live, get clean water from, or grow healthy food with real seeds that can propagate from year to year?  Here is hope for planning for products that are not toxic and actually help the environment to renew and regenerate.  

 

If you are a business owner and want to break free of the old "preditory" business practices that produce products with products known to be detrimental to the health and wellbeing of consumers or the environment, then there is hope for turning your life and your business practices around to be based on stewardship of loved ones and in harmony with Mother Nature.  

What part do you and your groups play in the emergence of the solutions

If we do not take care of our bodies and our environment, what will be the cost in pain, suffering, and finances? 

 

Hope for  Cleaning Products that are best for our health and the environment  Fresh air and sunlight can be used as sanitizers unless the air is polluted or contaminated.

Hope for the right ratios of bleach to water for disinfecting or safe drinking water   in an immediate emergency.

 

Hope for those that want to be well and become part of the Wellness Oriented Mutual Aid Network for a wholistic way to nurture and support those that are willing to serve and learn.

If you can not find a church that values your unique gifts and helps you grow in the Fruits of the Spirit then there are virtual online resources.  The intent of the Wellness Weavers network is to be a safe inclusive home for people who honor God at work in their life and seek to transform the world through the lens of love, peace, and joyful solutions.

If churches can get it together to get along with their own denominations, congregants, people that they are in ministry with (serving), and all faiths that recognize God, then it will extend to peace in our families and communities and the world! Before we can expect that to happen, each of us must have inner peace.
