Hello, friends! My name is Dixie Vargo. I am a Certified Wellness Inventory Facilitator and the founder of Still Waters.
What is a Wellness Inventory Facilitator?
Many people have recognized that working harder doesn’t necessarily lead to the holistic wellness that they desire. They recognize that they have to go deeper to achieve the balance and wellbeing they long for in life. Hiring a trained professional who listens, offers support, encouragement, perspective, and guided practices to help them get to where they want to go has often made the difference.
How Does Spirit-Centered Wellness Work?
My practice is faith-based and grounded in Christian monastic spirituality. Our time together is all about inviting life into your whole being. In our times together you will be guided inward as you determine what it is you really desire as you navigate the terrain of your life experience.
Wellness Facilitation uses all of our human faculties (intuition, emotion, imagination, senses, and intellect) to discern your personal wellness journey. When you slow down, begin to reflect, and take a long, loving look at what is happening in you, through you, and around you, you begin to become aware of the experience and presence of the Holy Spirit. The more you know yourself, the more you know God; and the more you know God, the more you know yourself and your direction towards healing. Intimacy with God leads naturally into transformation, wholeness, and action.
How is Spirit-Centered Wellness Different?
What Spirit-Centered Wellness is Not
Wellness Facilitation is not spiritual direction. Spiritual direction is also spirit-centered, but may focus primarily on the spiritual dimension of wellness. A spiritual director's work is to focus your attention on your spiritual experience and points of self-discovery, to explore with you God's will and purpose in your life. A spiritual director listens with you for the voice of God and to help you notice God's movement in your life. A faith-based Wellness Facilitator focuses on your holistic
wellbeing with the understanding that one can only experience wellness physically, intellectually, emotionally and relationally when their spirit at the core of their being is at peace.
Wellness Facilitation is not counseling. We do not look for causation in the past, though healing may happen as a side effect of increasing awareness and engaging in healing practices in an environment conducive to healing. Our work will be as much as possible in the present and focused on your desires and present time objectives. I will support you to move forward, set holistic goals and take the necessary action to create what you desire.
Did you know that wellness is not the absence of disease?
The service I provide to the old, sick and dying is to companion them on their journey towards wholeness.
Benefits of my companionship are...
discovery of a healing and sustainable life balance
finding strengths that can shore up weaknesses
a healthier sense of wellbeing
a more complete overall wholeness
through the awakening of all the dimensions of self
There are four specific types of people who are my ideal clients and who can receive the most benefit from my companionship.
A person with a chronic disease or condition
Someone who has a terminal illness
A person in the second half of life and experiencing symptoms related to aging
A caregiver of someone fitting one of the descriptions above
Why you need Still Waters now
You are ready to make changes in order to find a healing and sustainable balance in life.
You have tried other methods and have had less than desirable results.
You are interested in considering alternative and non-prescriptive options for your disease management.
Your treatment plan feels out of your control.
Wholeness is most effectively attained when it starts as an interior work that invites each part of your person into the process: physical, intellectual, emotional, relational and spiritual. Still Waters uses a whole person model to explore and realize your wellness goals.
