What we bring:
We like to use the Learning Circle, instead of teaching. Most of what we do is in open discussions: they are an exchange of information, and this promotes everyone’s ability to share their experience. Speaking up is only part of the process — simply listening is also a significant way to participate. We have found that discussion always raises awareness and brings some valuable lessons about health.
The discussions involve sitting in the round – this format increases inclusion and encourages listening. It is an environment that creates openness and leads to discovery.
We all gain insight in the group, and it helps us be smarter about how to take our health into our own hands and create wellness. As we relate to the experience others have, and relax our social barriers, we develop key relationships: the group creates social bonds, and this outcome helps us find confidence about handling change. Learning together makes it easier to meet our own challenges.
More about our model:
We present the group learning experience as a way of demonstrating a community-based process: we promote unique health values, such as “Keep your attitude open,” and “Be willing to grow.” This view of lifestyle change is about growing. If you’re finished growing, you’re finished. This is a sea change from thinking we need discipline to force our habits to change.
Staying healthy involves growing.
We are a low-profit dedicated to showing why Prevention is central to health care. We also provide the how. We are not interested in the installation of good behaviors or discipline; we invite anyone interested in talking about increasing wellness to join us, and we gather around the desire to find genuine growth and development. Our aim is to provide time, resources, and an atmosphere of common ground, for learning ways to respond better to our health. It may sound odd, but there is power in discovering that health is something valuable that we all have in common. The reason many people find it difficult is that they are confused or struggling.
We believe that healthy lifestyle change is a natural outcome of education, and that most people just need resources, empathy, and motivation. Health Care needs to expand in ways that deliver more comprehensive messages, skills, and encouraging experiences… this will improve Prevention.
