Cypress Wellness Collaborative

Exercising our Capacity for Wholeness
The Cypress Wellness Collaborative is a wellness initiative where together we practice, learn, and educate one another on the nature of health as a movement toward wholeness. Health is a state of physical, psychological, and social wellbeing, which refers to a state of wholeness, of being whole. With mindfulness we learn to pay attention in a particular and purposeful way.

Lifestyle practices such as mindfulness meditation and yoga provide a space in which we can practice being mindful in our everyday life, which facilitates wholeness, and our being whole. In addition to our weekly classes, we are facilitating practical and educational offerings through workshops and the Wellness Collaborative canvas shell, where we will cultivate different ways of exercising our own unique expression of being mindful and whole.
