Wellness Conference at Stone Harbor on Nov. 2

The morning will conclude with a drumming circle led by Edi Kwasi Gbordzi of Ghana, West Africa. “Edi joined us last year in Door County,” says Terry Lundahl, who is helping to plan the event, “and the response from participants was overwhelming.”

Ministry Door County Medical Center (MDCMC) will sponsor a half-day conference on integrative wellness practices on Nov. 2 at Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center in Sturgeon Bay from 8 am – 12 pm. “This event is dedicated to empowering people with knowledge to take charge of their own health,” says event chairperson Dr. Chona Antonio, MD, who practices family medicine and acupuncture at Ministry.

The program is open to all members of the community, and will offer participants the opportunity to learn about holistic approaches to health as well as experience integrative practices such as mindfulness and Qi Gong, a gentle, flowing form of exercise.

Keynote speakers include Sara Edwards, LPC, who will discuss using mindfulness practices to provide personal healing, and Master Wasentha Young, an expert in integrating energy work into a healthy lifestyle. As part of their presentations, Edwards and Young will lead participants in actively experiencing integrative health techniques.

“With so much chronic disease in our lives today, patients are asking for ways to be proactive about their own health,” says Dr. Antonio. “Participants in this conference will come away with simple tools they can use right away to make a difference in their own well-being.”

The conference is free and open to the public, but preregistration is required. To register, call 920.493.5979.
