From a reader (yes I have one!):

Holistic Fair

"At Our Lady of Grace Center in Manhasset on September 29, almost a hundred people treated their bodies, minds and souls to a Holistic Spirituality and Wellness Fair which featured almost 20 workshops led by professionals of massage, T’ai Chi Chih, reflexology, polarity therapy, nutritional counseling, yoga, and Pilates, among others."

"Although the center has been a retreat house since 1980, it wasn’t until five years ago that the Congregation of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary decided to give it a more holistic flavor. “We realized that we have bodies as well as spirits,” said Sister Mary Dawson, a staff member at the center. “This is the adventure of the times: we are whole persons.”
