Roots is a program of Healing Circles Langley and is housed in the Soundview Center. The mission of Roots is to help improve individual and community well-being by creating a supportive atmosphere that encourages people to make positive life decisions, build community, and learn ways to improve health and wellness.

Roots focuses on 10 “roots” of wellness:

  • Exploration/creativity
  • Lifestyle/daily practices
  • Social connectedness
  • Stress/resilience
  • Emotional/mental health
  • Sense of self
  • Physical health
  • Finances
  • Purpose/meaning
  • Environmental

The Roots program offers classes to the community free of charge (although donations to Healing Circles are appreciated). Classes are held in the Cascade Room at Soundview Center and are selected by a committee that attempts to balance class offerings to reflect all the components of wellness.

You’ll find Roots of Wellness offerings preceded by the word ROOTS on the Soundview Center calendar.

If you’d like to volunteer to teach a Roots class, please read the guidelines for offerings. Then submit a proposal, making sure that you indicate Roots of Wellness on your proposal.

Community Salutes

Roots of Wellness and Healing Circles Langley want to recognize folks in our community who are going above and beyond to support the South Whidbey Community during this time of Pandemic.

Community Salutes will be given to people who have contributed a bit more to help our community in this challenging time. A goal of these Salutes, in addition to honoring wonderful people, is to support our local restaurants and businesses. Recipients will be recognized publicly and celebrated with gift certificates to local businesses as a thank you for their dedication and care.

Please send us your nominations! We want to know who is stepping up, and how. You may also contact us if you’d like to help donate financially for gift certificates to help support our local businesses.

As uncertain as the world is right now, our community is strong and there is a lot of good and positivity to celebrate.
Please email your nominations and inquiries to: Roots.Whidbey@gmail.com”
