Pathways to personal wellness

Pathways to personal wellness

For the mind, body & spirit

“Worse than the desire not to live is to live without desire,” Hunter Armistead writes in his story “Inward Bound.” After witnessing his father’s fatal fall down a flight of stairs in a Nashville restaurant, Armistead finds himself at a crossroads. Not only have all the usual distractions and activities failed to comfort him, but he has lost a sense of his life’s meaning and finds himself sinking into a serious depression. His journey to a Buddhist monastery in Nepal and his experience practicing Vipassana, or “Noble Silence,” a 10-day exercise in intensive meditation, helps to restore harmony to his life.

With Glow, our annual issue dedicated to health and wellness, we focus on the different means available to achieve that same harmony of mind, body and spirit. Whether you are training for the upcoming Country Music Marathon, are curious about taking up a martial art or have a loved one struggling with depression, let Glow be your guide to reaching your goals, learning a new discipline and achieving that state we all desire most: balance.
