Wellness has been defined simply as a state of being in good health. In order to be meaningful, good health must include one's mental, physical and spiritual health. In this way, wellness can be understood and experienced as a holistic, dynamic practice -- authentically arising and moving through our own individual yet interdependent realities.
When we apply the holistic principle of cura personalis (“care for the whole person”), with faithfulness and attention, it becomes clear that cultivating and sustaining wellness requires knowledge, self-knowledge, and presence -- skillfully evolving and thriving in harmony with the elements. Water, earth, fire, air, æther.
Whenever circumstances require it, we must seek counsel and care from qualified medical professionals; and also, we must maintain our personal responsibility for healing and well-being.
Wellness journeys are thus growth opportunities, offering experiences, knowledge and inspiration -- to integrate into a sustainable individualized wellness practice.
Wherever we are on this planet, wherever we are in our practice: the rapid and accelerating changes of our era are calling for us to speed up -- not with busy-ness but evolution-wise. And so we rise, with intention to reach the speed of change gracefully.
With Healing Springs, we enter the elements of earth and water with their respective qualities -- stability and adaptability.
