On October 20, we’ll focus on: Trust
Believing in a higher power, whatever name you give that being, brings peace during tough times and gives hope for the future.
There are many benefits of trusting in this power. Research shows that our faith, beliefs and hopes can play an important role in our health. Georgetown University Medical School professor Dale Matthews and his colleagues have shown that religious involvement helps people avoid illness, recover from it more quickly and most remarkably, live longer. The more spiritually committed we are, the greater the benefit.
Several medical studies have touted the benefits of prayer and healing. Faith creates an observable resiliency in human beings. The medical community has a growing interest in the role that faith and prayer play in our overall well-being.
In this session, learn how trust and faith, no matter what, if any religion you practice, can have measurable effects on your health and wellbeing.
