Healthful Living Model
It is through this model that you may define your own declaration of healthful living (see our article) and performance improvement plan through deep consideration of your thoughts, feelings, and actions in the six "circles."
By pursuing "health" in these areas, we leave behind limiting paradigms of scarcity and survival and embrace empowering ways of being. As each circle is nurtured, you serve yourself and others by fostering an enhanced life experience for all things of the Earth.

Health of Earth
The Earth is not ours. We humans are one of millions of living denizens that populate this rotating orb, yet the only species capable of destroying it. Conscious attention and actions that ensure that our “ways of being” preserve our planet and it resources are critical to its ability to sustain our life upon it.
