Wellness has been defined as a state of being in good health. In order for wellness to be meaningful, we must include mental, physical and spiritual well-being.
When we apply the principle of cura personalis (“care for the whole person”), a holistic wellness practice can arise and move through our individual and interdependent realities. Cultivating and sustaining wellness requires knowledge and disciplined presence, then – to skillfully evolve and thrive in harmony with the elements: water, earth, fire, air, æther.
Whenever circumstances require it, we seek counsel and care from qualified health professionals; and also, we must maintain our personal responsibility for healing and well-being.
Wellness journeys are thus more than the sum of their parts; they are growth opportunities — aligning inspiration and experiences with discernment — guiding us to a sustainable daily practice.
Wherever we are on the planet, wherever we are in our personal practice: the rapid changes of our accelerating era are calling for us to speed up – not with busy-ness, but evolution-wise. And so let’s rise with intention to reach the speed of change gracefully.❂
