SpiritWorks Foundation

Center for Recovery of the Soul

National Wellness Week



Join us as we celebrate National Wellness Week!  This first ever National Wellness Week takes place from September 19-25, 2011.  Launched by SAMHSA as part of National Recovery Month, the goal is “to inspire individuals and organizations to get involved and take one step for wellness”.  This year’s theme is “Living Wellness”.

At SpiritWorks we have used this week to begin a new initiative, “The 10,000 Club”, and launch our new Wellness Compass:  Achieving Wellness Through Positive Self Care.  We are excited to be one of the premier organizations in the country helping individuals improve their health and wellness.  The 10,000 Club is an initiative designed to get people to move more.  We have distributed a limited amount of pedometers and are encouraging people to take 10,000 steps per day. We hope to expand the distribution of pedometers with additional funding and get more people moving.

The Wellness Compass designed and produced by SpiritWorks Foundation takes the dimensions of wellness and incorporates goals, values, and time management principles to help individuals get and stay well.  It is an expansion of the SpiritWorks Foundation Recovery Compass as it includes 2 additional dimension, Vocational and Financial.

We are thrilled to be rolling out these two new Center offerings and hope you will join us and benefit from their use.

Please contact me with any questions or if you need more information.


Until next time…

Peace, Jan


Lost in Woonsocket



SpiritWorks Foundation joins The Farley Center at Williamsburg Place in sponsoring, Lost in Woonsocket.  The film is about two alcoholics who are missing for years and discovered living together in the back woods of Woonsocket R.I.  Through a series of events the two are able to reunite with their families, go to treatment, experience recovery and achieve redemption. See what’s next for them and others like them following the screening of the film.  A Q & A Panel Discussion follows which includes professionals and members of the recovery community.  Tickets are available at the door for a cost of $10.00.  The screening takes place on Friday, October 14, 2011 at the Williamsburg Regional Library at 6 pm.

I hope to see you there.

Until next time…

peace, Jan

A Busy Summer


Many of you might ask, “where did it go?” .  Yes summer is over my friends and it’s time again to slow down and settle in for fall and winter.  We have had a great summer here.  We are coming off of our annual SpiritWorks Summer Camp which was a tremendous success.  And, a fabulous pre hurricane Irene 5K race, the Recovery Rocks Race.  I am grateful to all who participated in both events.  I am even more grateful to those who helped and supported those events.  We could not have done it without you.

We have also been busy creating trainings, welcoming our new employee Tim, putting final touches on the Barn and preparing new programs.  Fall will be an exciting Fall for us as well.  I hope that you will find a way to connect with us by either stopping by, sending an email, giving us a call or posting a comment on my blog.

Until next time,

peace, Jan
