Energy cannot be created or transformed – it can only be changed from one form to another .” ~ Albert Einstein

Wellness is an integrated system of 12 dimensions that make up our human needs.  Its a daily choice that we make throughout the day to move towards being well.  We take energy in and transform it.  We then release this energy into the environment.  It’s how we do this transformation that we results in use experiencing “dis-ease”.

We are energy transformers. All of our life processes, including health and illness, depend on how we manage energy. Our energy inputs and outputs form a complete wellness energy system

Dr. John Travis (grandfather of the wellness movement) created the “wellness continuum” which illustrates how you can move towards a high level of wellness even if you are unwell.

The continuum includes: 1) Self-responsibility & Love; 2) Breathing; 3) Sensing; 4) Eating; 5) Moving; 6) Feeling; 7) Thinking; 8) Playing & Working; 9) Communicating; 10) Intimacy; 11) Finding Meaning; 12) Transcending.

In this course you will learn more about the 12 Dimensions of Wellness and how it affect your physical. emotional, mental and spiritual well-being. Wellness is a journey after all, an ongoing process, not a destination where you arrive and settle in.
