WELCOME TO THE WHOLE IN THE UNIVERSE CAFÉ’ wherein we present holistic health and well-being subjects both macro and micro. We envision this café may have hundreds of different offerings to drink in, and we invite you to not only sip here from time to time but also to contribute a comment or question which we’ll post here. We’ll start the discussion with this introduction…
At one of our meetings, we began with a comment that “a life well and truly lived is an adventure.”
A hand shot up, and a lady said: “Great, I love an adventure!” she paused, then added: “as long as I know where I’m going!” Well of course, what makes an adventure is that we don’t know where we’re going, and that makes some of us nervous to the point of being unwell. That unwellness we may say is caused by a lack of ease… which causes disease…disease.
Be Well! is an Explorers club for easing into whole life living. That involves what we call the discovery and exploration of the “Whole U” – body, mind and spirit. It’s from this big picture perspective that we begin to recognize our place in the fullness of things. We explore our nature and discover our natural balance -that we’re living one inter-connected life expressed not only in its common similarities, but also in its common differences. It’s an adventure that allows us to become healthier, happier and wiser, and it begins and ends with our being open to change.
CHANGE IS ALWAYS HAPPENING NOW
The art of natural health and well-being is one of constant tuning-in to what is actually happening in our body, mind and spirit here and now. So we don’t focus so much on what has happened or may happen, as we do on what is actually happening now. We use pain as a pointer – as an indicator that something needs attention. And that attention may include a holistic assessment of our suffering from a whole range of SOS – Source Of Stress – indicators like poor nutrition, low self-worth and high anxiety. Indeed, they’re often connected.
At BE-WELL! our approach begins with expanding our understanding and ends with expanding our range of action. That’s because we want you to take over your own well-being, to know and manage what you can know and manage, and to clearly see what you cannot know or manage. It’s in that knowing and unknowing that we will find our own balance, our own dance, and a significant reduction of that which is the main cause of disease and disturbance in our world today: stress.
We won’t go into all the aspects of physical, mental and spiritual stress here, (you’ll find lots of info here and here) except to say that to live a full and happy life we must learn what makes us feel so empty and unhappy now – in other words, what are we so stressed about? At Be-Well! we start and finish with helping you discover for yourself what is happening when you do this or don’t do that. We give you the practical tools to fix and fine-tune your life with balance and beauty; to act from wholeness and health, and to heal by leaning into what you love!
LOVE IS THE ULTIMATE HEALER
An ancient Chinese sage once said: “Live well and long like a plant – tend the new shoots.” BE-WELL! will put you in touch with a whole universe of “new shoots” to enliven your daily experience of a life lived with balance, beauty and delight.
