Additional Information: The Damaskos Way - 365 Days to Health and Healing
Cynthia Damaskos might be a familiar name, as she is also the director of the OSB! Running this vital ministry has given her the opportunity to work with many hosts and identify needs that are not currently being met in the Orthodox community at large. One is in the area of women’s wellness holistically. Combining spiritual, emotional and physical guidance in the form of bible studies and retreat material.
After 35 years of studying health and nutrition for herself, family and friends in an informal manner, she realized that all roads led to becoming a Health Coach. Currently a student at the Institute of Integrative Nutrition, she is combining her past speaking experience, health education and passion for wellness by starting a new venture: The Damaskos Way - The Road to Health and Healing.
There are many holistic programs, books and retreats offered for women who would like to rejuvenate, get healthier and find strength to tackle their hectic and stressful lives. The frustration Cynthia encountered is that they tend to incorporate non-Christian beliefs in their teaching and guidance. Cynthia’s passion is to help women understand that Christians can be holistically healthy also… mind, body and spirit. That God created us to work in a synergistic way, and that practices associated with other belief systems don’t necessarily have the market cornered on peace and serenity… their marketing has just been more compelling!
Currently Cynthia is working on creating a guided cleanse, a coaching program and a bible study/retreat guide with “The Holistic Christian Woman” as it’s working title along with a conference to be held next April in Chicago. Lessons from the fathers of the church along with saints are combined with Holy Scripture and ancient Christian principals in the areas of food, exercise and simplification of life.
