Wellbeing at the Core
At the University of Minnesota's Center for Spirituality & Healing, Wellbeing permeates everything we do.
Wellbeing is a state of balance or alignment in body, mind and spirit. In this state, we feel content; connected to purpose, people and community; peaceful and energized; resilient and safe. In short, we are flourishing.
Our personal wellbeing - as well as the wellbeing of our families, the organizations in which we work, and the communities in which we live - is influenced by many factors illustrated in our Wellbeing Model, explained in more detail below. We encourage you to consider ways to increase your capacity and expand your potential in these areas.
Advancing the health and wellbeing of people, organizations and communities is core to the Center for Spirituality & Healing.
The Center provides a wealth of resources, events and workshops to help you learn more about wellbeing. We invite you to explore our website - and our Taking Charge of Your Health & Wellbeing website - to learn more about your wellbeing.
