A day of holistic events at Unity Westlake

A business structure based on collaboration instead of competition, could it possibly work?

Mary Maynard, founder of Centered Wellness, believes it will, and has seen it in effect since creating this collaborative affiliation in 2010. While many businesses today, such as banking and professional sports, use a deconstructive process, Mary is drawn to the constructive process. As a nurse seeing firsthand how the human body can break down, she also participated in the many ways the body could be built back up. Through the process of seeing that mainstream medicine does not have all the answers, she enlarged her vision and views the human body as indicative of today's weary culture.

Now is the time to build up, to reconstruct, whether a company or a human body. Fear triggers competition, as if there isn't enough, while collaboration enlivens sharing, increasing values, knowing there is enough.

Come see how this collaborative process works on Saturday, Aug. 9 at Unity Spiritual Center. Start the day with a Wellness Fair, 10 a.m. to 5p.m., designed for your total well-being. It will cover attitudes towards money, healthy food choices, types of yoga, your pet's diet, how to maximize healing, books to read, energizing jewelry, and healing oils. Tips, services and products from holistic health practitioners, personal break-out sessions, and two keynote speakers will fill the day.

Mary Maynard, who is also a medical intuitive and nurse, will speak on Diagnosing Spiritual Disease at 11 a.m. Robin Volker will discuss Treating Spiritual Disease at 12:30 p.m. Take the 9 a.m. yoga class and stay for the Wellness Fair for free; otherwise all-day admission is $5.

The day of events continues at 5 p.m. with an outdoor cookout. At 7 p.m. Bay Villager Brian Henke will take the stage and transport us on a magical musical tour with songs from his seventh titled release, "Seven Magic Spells," using his wands consisting of a double-neck harp guitar and Larrivee LC-09 guitar. Calling Brian's music "new age" doesn't fully capture it, since he strums about things that inspire and move him. Nature inspires him in a big way, everything from the seasons to waterfalls to winged inhabitants of Scottish Moors are attended to with sacred reverence on his guitar strings.

Bring a dish to share and food for grilling. Beverages provided. Tickets for concert are $10, children under ten free. Fifty percent of proceeds go to USC's Youth and Family Ministries.

Unity Spiritual Center is located at 23855 Detroit Road in Westlake.
