We elevate the wellbeing of individuals & organizational leaders to drive healthier company cultures and communities.
The Science of wellbeing
There is no real division between mind and body because of communication networks that exist between the brain and neurological, endocrine and immune systems.”
- Oakley Ray, Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Psychiatry & Pharmacology, Vanderbilt University
A Holistic Approach
The World Health Organization states “Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
We define Wellbeing as a healthy mind, body and spirit. Years of scientific research supports the relationship between the mind, body, and spirit and the impact on our thoughts/actions, physiology and relationships.read more
Are you a front Goose?
Geese fly in a v-formation to conserve the energy of the entire flock. Each bird flies slightly above the one in front of them, to reduce wind resistance and fly longer distances. When the front goose needs to replenish its energy it shifts back, and another one takes over the lead. The flock embodies the essence of wellbeing as it is dynamic; the birds continually respond to the actions and needs of self and others.
