Wellness at the intersection of science and spiritual practice
“Christ will exalt in my body” Phil. 1:20
Mind, Body, and the Holy Spirit
PraXis combines evidence-based wellness with ancient Christian spiritual practices. Our goal is to make healthy habits part of every Christian’s prayerful life. We cover three areas: mindfulness, fitness and plant-based eating.
“Be sober-minded; be watchful.” [1 Peter 5:8]
Contemplation, Calisthenics, Fasting, and Community
Wellness is a secular term for practices that address the epidemic of heart disease, anxiety, and depression. We partners with churches to provide classes, workshops and seminars. We also offer coaching and counseling to individuals.
[1 Corinthians 6:19-20]
“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
“Your Faith has made you well.” Luke 17:19
Three Focus Areas
We explore practices in three areas: mindfulness, fitness, and diet. We’ll show you how how to practice, while explaining the theology and science behind the practice. The goal is to deepen your relationship with God while providing tools for healthy living, and resilience against anxiety and depression.
Typically known as contemplation, this tradition goes back almost 2,000 years. Explore contemporary Centering Prayer and other forms of conventional prayer that helps exercise the mind and reduce stress.
Christian Dieting is called fasting and it doesn’t mean you stop eating. But it does mean you occasionally restrict your intake of meat and dairy. We’ll look at the health benefits, theology, and practices of this ancient tradition.
The need for exercise and movement is a fact of modern life. While there is no such thing as a traditional form Christian form of exercise, we explore exercise modalities like yoga, calisthenics, Pilates, and HIIT. The most important thing is to find a movement mode that you enjoy enough to do everyday.
