Healing body, mind and spirit

An ill friend (new to Port Clinton) said there weren’t any meditation places or organic food sources nearby.

I beg to differ.

Healing thru yoga
I love attending Linda Green’s yoga class at Magruder Hospital, from 6:30 to 8:00 pm every Tuesday. She starts every class with some relaxation techniques and ends every class with about 10 minutes of meditation. (Oh, and we do lots of yoga in the middle!) During winter, Donna Lueke runs the class and ends class with a guided meditation. It’s like a mini-vacation. Linda also offers yoga thru Bodi N Balance on Wednesday nights and in the summer at Lakeside. In Huron-Sandusky, there is the House of Yin, offering yoga and tai chi.

Healing thru meditation
The Converging Paths Meditation Center in Sandusky guides participants in a variety of meditative techniques every Tuesday night from 7 to 8:30. The night we went, they led us thru a chanting meditation, then walking and yoga meditation, and finally a quiet mindfulness meditation. On Tuesday, Mar. 12, they are featuring author and meditation practitioner Andy Douglas, who will share stories and songs of his seven-year journey across Asia as a yogic monk.

Healthy thru organic foods and supplements 
Sandusky’s Health Plus grocery store, near the mall on Milan Rd, has great prices on supplements and some organice produce, including gluten-free flours, dried fruits and nuts and some refrigerated products.

For more organic food options, I checked out localharvest.com and found lots of options. Huron’s Mulberry Creek offers organic herbs and vegetables and has a CSA (community supported agriculture) program.

Healing thru spiritual community
My husband and I come from different religious backgrounds and we like to incorporate ideas from diverse traditions, so we were delighted to find the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Erie County where all traditions and types of believers are welcome (even nonbelievers!).

If I was able to find all of that, surely there are even more options. Share what you’ve found!
