Nancy Joy Callihan
Nancy Joy Callihan, co-chair of UIL Health and Wellness Ministry, has been a passionate student, teacher and advocate for health and wellness all of her adult life. After graduating from university, she lived in the Middle East for three years, where she learned a meditation practice, experienced a healthier diet and learned to appreciate the value of organic foods and nutrition. Upon returning to the States, she recognized and joined the emerging Holistic Health culture and attended programs at Cleveland Clinic and the Gestalt Institute, Cleveland, Ohio. Natural nutrition and its healthy consequences were magnified as she studied and prepared for the birth of her first child. She carried her inspiration to serve others by teaching several mind-body movement programs such as Hatha Yoga, Relaxercise and dance.
She trained and became a certified Brain Gym instructor and consultant. With the unexpected passing of her father, she was led to a grief and trauma processing modality called Rapid Eye Technology, R.E.T. for which she received master certification.
As a child, her mother read and shared Unity’s Daily Word and other Unity books with her. She was a Unity student without a church home until she “found” Unity in Lynnwood eight years ago, to her ongoing delight!
Recognizing that the body is the temple of the soul, she continues to enthusiastically learn and grow in her knowledge and practice of health and wellness by adding tools to her “tool kit."
