Partner with the PraXis wellness experiment

The average person need 20-40 minutes of daily exercise to reduce their rate of heart disease. Exercise makes us more resilient to anxiety, depression and other emotional and mental disorders

PraXis is a theological field education project produced in cooperation with the Vancouver School of Theology at the University of British Columbia, BC, Canada.

We seek sponsoring parishes and parachurch organizations who wish to explore the idea of incorporating evidence-base wellness and Christian spiritual practices. We are not necessarily trying to “teach” anything in particular. PraXis is a conversation about approaching spiritual practice and our bodily health in an integrated way. Partners often just get inspired by the ideas and then chose to go in a direction that best embodies the Spirit for their community.

Some possibilities:

An online contemplation class

An online fitness class

A lecture on diet, mindfulness and exercise

Host weekly online “mealtimes” where members can discuss and share their own “praxis” with the group and get support

Promote the program to their community via email list and church outreach

Or collaborate and design a program that works for the needs of your community
