2017 Spring into Fitness Challenge – All-Campus Registration opens February 13

New for 2017 – the Spring Into Fitness Challenge is now a campus-wide fitness challenge for all Dickinsonians – including students, staff and faculty members! The annual Spring Into Fitness Challenge is an annual exercise-minutes challenge that traditionally has been between Dickinson College employees and several other local peer institutions with an additional challenge between the divisions of the college, but now is for all Dickinson community members. Online registration for the challenge opens this year on Monday, February 13 and continues through February 28. The competition officially kicks off the last day of spring break, on Sunday, March 19 and continues through Saturday, April 29.

Specific details of this new, inclusive Challenge approach are still being determined. Special program challenges and activities will be offered weekly for the mini-team challenges held this spring. Mini-teams can be made up of 2-6 participants, with combinations to include students, staff and faculty. For employees of the college, the employee divisional challenge will continue with winners being determined by two criteria – the greatest percentage of participation for staff and also the highest average number of minutes per participant. Once registered, all participants will be asked to submit their exercise minutes online at the end of each week during the challenge through a portal form in OrgSync. The online submission website address and other details will be provided to all employees registered for the challenge.

We hope that everyone will join the 2017 Spring Into Fitness Challenge by registering and participating with enthusiasm in spring 2017. Consider putting together a fitness challenge mini-team within your own division or department – or by forming a diverse team comprised of students/staff/faculty – to add to the fun and spirit of the competition. Mini-teams should include two-to-six members, and need to identify with a team name during the online registration process. Look for more details to be announced on the Spring Into Fitness webpage and Vitality. Make the steps you take in the fitness challenge the first steps you take toward getting on track to a healthier you!

Register in OrgSync via the Gateway by visiting the link below for more details and information!

Professional Development and Wellness

The Spiritual Dimensions of Health | 4 session series

Presented by Dan Cozort, Assoc. Professor of Religion
Stern Center, room 102 | noon-1 p.m.
Session dates: February 21, 23, 28 & March 2

The holistic paradigm is that body, mind and spirit form an interdependent whole. It is the guiding principle of traditional systems of medicine such as those of indigenous peoples, of great civilizations such as India and China, and even of the West until the 20th century. It is now being tested in an approach called “integrative medicine,” which is secular and scientific but open to the possibility that “alternative” or “complementary” medicine may have something valuable to offer to those who suffer. Holistic healing is concerned less about the relief of symptoms than about the restoration of wholeness through addressing the root causes of illness, which may not be physical. It is not only healing from disease but from existential suffering; it seeks to give meaning to life and death. In traditional cultures, “religion” and “holistic healing” are virtually synonymous and the primary role of religious specialists is healing. In a broader sense, however, holistic healing can also be understood as any healing that involves the spirit of the patient and which may also be affected by the spirit of the healer and of others who are close to the patient. In this larger sense, all healing is holistic healing and has a spiritual dimension, although this is often discounted and even suppressed in conventional bio-medicine.

Space is limited for this 4-session series! Registration is open and available in CLIQ via the Gateway. For assistance with registration, please send an email to devwell@dickinson.edu or call ext. 1503.

Empty Bowls Fundraiser

For 26 years, Carlisle Arts Learning Center (CALC) and Dickinson College have partnered to host Empty Bowls to benefit Project SHARE. This is a very special-and popular-fundraiser. Attendees choose a handmade clay howl and then share in a modest meal of soup and bread-a reminder that there are many in the community who may have nothing to eat except soup and bread. All proceeds benefit Project SHARE to assist the more than 1600 families facing hunger and malnutrition. Attendees keep their bowl as a reminder each day.
CALC coordinates the event and oversees the creation of over 250 bowls handmade and glazed by local artists. Dickinson College provides the food and space to hold the event, and M&T Bank is sponsoring the event again this year.
Tickets are $20 and can be purchased at CALC (38 W. Pomfret St), online at www.carlislearts.org, or at Project SHARE.
The event will be held on Monday March 20th from 6:00 PM-8:00 PM in the Dickinson College Social Hall, Holland Union Building.
