Mind, Body, Spirit

What does it mean to be a balanced person?

How do the mind, body, and spirit work together to create a whole person and a healthy self? Understanding their differences is important as well: when you think of the spirit, do you include the soul, and is the soul separate from the mind? In the mind, body, spirit theme, you will explore the role the aspects of self play individually and collectively in human growth throughout a lifetime:

  • How does the mind work? How does one maintain a well-exercised mind?
  • How does the body work?
  • What is the spirit? Is it distinct from spirituality? How is it connected to other parts of life?
  • What are the challenges to creating healthy communities? And how do these challenges affect other social outcomes?          
  • How does a person or a community foster harmony among the mind, body, and spirit?
