Path of Bliss presents

Holistic Health and

The Basics of Natural Therapy

June 17, 2017

9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Immanuel Church, Highlands

Holistic health is a major key to greater energy and vitality. It encompasses natural therapy, a gradual and gentle process. Our workshop offers a foundation on how to honor, serve, and maintain the whole person - mind, body, and spirit. Our instructor, Dada Jyotiriishanandaa Dada, is a senior yoga teacher with thirty years of experience. Over the past twenty years, he has been traveling the world, researching and teaching Holistic Health and Naturopathy. The cost is $60.00. For more information, please contact Bob Penneys.


As we move closer to the election of a new Bishop for the Diocese of Delaware, there will be three "walk-abouts" in our diocese. The dates/locations are listed below. Starting times will be announced later but all will take place in the evening.

 • Wednesday, June 28, 2017 - at Christ Church in Greenville

 • Thursday, June 29, 2017 - at St. Peter 's in Lewes

 • Friday, June 30, 2017 - at Christ Church in Dover

What is the purpose of the Walk-About?

The Walk-About provides a way to introduce the candidates for Bishop to the people of the diocese. This is also an opportunity for the candidates to see a sample of the churches and ministries that are representative of the diocese. The Walk-About is a part of the discernment process in which people of the diocese are asked to listen and prayerfully consider who it is that God is calling to be our next Bishop. This is not intended to be a time to discuss issues but rather a part of the discernment process for both those attending and the candidates.

Who should attend the Walk-About?

All those who will be voting during the election of the new Bishop should plan on attending one of the Walk-About sessions. Other parishioners and non-voting clergy are certainly invited and encouraged to attend. This is your opportunity to hear and meet the candidates before the electing convention.

Immanuel is a Welcoming Community,

Celebrating and Sharing the Good News of Jesus

through Worship, Prayer, Learning, and Service.
