John Knox Village (JKV) truly is “Where Possibility Plays™”! Possibility continues to play through the pandemic and was a highlight of JKV’s Active Aging Week. John Knox Village is acutely aware that continued growth is important at any age. This year was no exception. The global pandemic pushed us to reimagine the way we embrace life. Despite COVID, JKV focused on pivoting as events and programs focused on the 7 Dimensions of Wellbeing. Although events were scaled down to smaller gathering and most required technology for virtual participation, our events included highlighting the talent of our Executive Chef, as well as Nutritional Therapist and Chef Carol Green. Other events included a photo composition workshop with professional wildlife photographer Phoenix Marks, Group Mindfulness Meditation with Dr. Tawanda Spaulding, The Benefits of Meditation with Sara Cain-daCosta, founder of Synergy Yoga Studio in Rock Hill, SC, a Dynamic Dimensions Fitness challenge, and special guest presenters including Dr. Tereza Hubkova, former Medical Director of Canyon Ranch and Dr. Linda Sasser, author of “Brain SENSE”.
