We teach skills that help individuals and groups be more independent and aware of how day to day choices impact the health of their mind, body and spirit. Our approach in all of our services emphasizes pro-active responsibility rather than reactive emergency.Most importantly, we want to create services and products that truly support people and larger communities to live in a more harmonious, cooperative, and vibrant world.
SHC advocates for a direct and simple way of living healthy in our world. We highlight these 4 tenets:
Your Community Is Vital.
Our choices are connected to the environmental, social, and economic health of our local communities as well as to the health of the greater world in which we are all a part. For example, the choice to walk has impact on your cardiovascular system, your nervous system, your carbon footprint, and how much local advocacy exists to spend resources on building sidewalks.
Your Choices Have Power.
Sustainable means that choices one makes daily have long range impact on your body, and the community of life that you are connected to. This emphasizes pro-active responsibility rather than reactive emergency. This view is deeply connected to practices such as building a strong immune system, a healthy gut, and a nervous system resilient to the high stress demands of our modern world. Your choices are your responsibility. Make them wisely for your body, your mind, and your community.
Your Resiliency Assists You.
When systems are strong on mental, physical, and emotional levels, we decrease our chances of chronic disease, and increase the likelihood of rebounding quickly from things like the common cold.
Your Structure Is Your Home.
The body is like a house. You would never think about building a house without a front door, a foundation, or roof. Your body is much the same way: many pieces build a strong structure. Similarly, your healthcare has many components.
