Welcome to East and West of the River Wellness, a network of health and wellness resources. As James Haba's beautiful poem THE GREETING states, I have been busy waiting for your arrival, putting fresh flowers on the table, arranging things as best as I could so you will feel you have arrived at the right place, at the right time.
East and West of the River Wellness believes every life is precious and deserves to be nurtured to unfold its fullest potential. We envision a future where opportunities for growth and personal exploration, health and wellness are firmly rooted in the mission and vision of all institutions and community support systems. Until then, we are committed, as Gandhi said, to "be the change we wish to see in the world".
If you are well versed in the healing arts, well supported by your community, or feeling content and satisfied with life we invite you to explore our network and resources to see how we might mutually support one another, contribute to your livelihood or find something to nurture your day to day living. If you are feeling stuck, frustrated or challenged by your current life situation we encourage you to feel the possibility of discovering something new here, something essential to your journey of healing and transformation. If you simply need a nourishing recipe, an inspiring poem, a therapeutic massage, an enriching class, or a link to a community resource to fortify your journey, we are pleased to nourish your life and wellbeing in what ever way we can.
East and West of the River Wellness is committed to your journey of self-actualization no matter your background or life situation. Join us and create the best YOU possible!
Wishing you grace and wellbeing,
Robin and Wayne
