Holistic Health Group discusses care of spirit, holistic and wholistic care

Published 10:00pm Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Saturday, May 3, from 10 – 11:30 a.m. at the Polk County Public Library in Columbus, the Holistic Health Discussion Group will discuss the difference between holistic and wholistic care and a new perspective on including our spirit in the care of our overall health.
Mark W. Neville, the facilitator of the discussion, has been a resident of Tryon since 2006 and is the founder of the Holistic Health Discussion Group.
Neville said, “I’ve been impressed by the high quality of the presentations we’ve had in our discussion group. The previous presenters have set a high bar for me. I’ve also been pleasantly surprised with the attendance.
Clearly residents in a wide area around Tryon are interested in learning more about holistic approaches to caring for their health.”
“My speciality is care of spirit within the context of holistic healthcare and that’s what I’ll be talking about this Saturday.
I’ll share my new perspective on the care of our spirit as well as some ideas about what we ourselves can do to assess the condition of our spirit and care for it.”
Neville serves as the Clinical Director of Counseling Services and Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) at Four Seasons Compassion for Life headquartered in Flat Rock. At Four Seasons, Neville directs the bereavement, spiritual, and general counseling as well as CAM services provided to hospice patients and their family members in a nine county area in Western North Carolina.
