What is a Living Wellness Growth Group? 

Living Wellness Growth Groups are gatherings of individuals or small groups, led by a certified facilitator, that study and work through our 8-week course focused on nutrition, fitness, and faith. A Growth Group is a safe space where participants can come to discuss the health of their whole body, mind, and spirit.

Meetings are 90 minutes long and address a variety of topics throughout the course, including but not limited to the following:

  • Practicing mindful eating

  • Mind, body, and spiritual health

  • Learning how to eat in order to nourish our bodies

  • A group grocery-store tour

  • A fermented-foods demo. Learn how to make your own kombucha!

  • Practicing accountability with ourselves and with one another

  • Exercising and stretching

  • Goal setting with SMART goals

  • Watching creative, hilarious video segments for motivation throughout the week

  • Laugh together, grow together, and...

  • Read and discuss the Living Wellness for Growth Groups book, based on the award-winning, original, Living Wellness book!
