Nourish, Community of Support

Mission Statement for Nourish

 

The purpose of this self-healing community is to promote necessary support for those engaged in the art of self-healing--continuous, consistent, affordable support for those engaged or wanting to engage their own power within to heal.  This is an art, and as any artful endeavor, our chances of making a true lifestyle change raise dramatically when we engage the community walking this path with us. The spaces created in service to this community are born of compassion, kindness and a true desire to Nourish and see each individual thrive. Join us.    

How can I participate in the Nourish Community?  

This community has a mission to support members (sometimes with serious illnesses) in growing healthier through conscious eating, moving, thinking, and relating.   Each of these 4 behaviors can be understood here.  Relating is where we begin.  

An orientation is the only requirement for joining Nourish.  You do not need a Naturopathic Health Evaluation or to participate in a Clinical Intensive, although your greatest benefit may come from engaging from the start with a skilled behavioral naturopathic doctor.  

Once you’ve attended orientation, you’ll be invited to join the Nourish Community.  We encourage you to have a look around the online portal and complete your member profile.  You can share as much or as little as you’d like on your profile.

Being Stillness Retreat

 

All is in Order Retreat

a retreat for Acceptance

 

What if I were to tell you you could experience anything and be completely at peace with whatever arises? Nothing is wrong. There is growing and resistance..openness or suffering. 

 

Everything could not be otherwise and will not be otherwise. All hardship, all challenges are in order.  This isn’t a belief.  It’s how it is

 

The voice that says “I am weak” 

Where does this thought show up in the body?

How does it feel? Where is it? 

Can we take our kindness there?

What sort of disempowering experiences out out-of-control feelings did you experience in early years? 

Does it feel like you’ve been running through life?

When has it been slow? For how long? How was that experience for you? 

For effective healing to occur, we must bring sincere tenderness close to our hearts.  While bringing tenderness in, notice or perceive anything tensing you in your heart area.

The quality of our relationships determines the quality of our life.   

 

The greatest influence on our health and happiness is our community. All that we want to be lives consciously within our community. Our teachers, models, exemplars live within our community. 

Every one of us long is to be happy and to not suffer. This is the entire purpose of our lives. All other knowledge is a distant second at best. We have created mini fabulous, Life enhancing processes, inventions, businesses government, science, education and we are no closer to happiness and freedom from suffering.

Patients come to me because they are sick, unhappy, and suffering. I teach them what little I know of the art of self healing. I become part of their community and they of mine. It is of primary importance to me too guide and support my patients and students to avidly cultivate for themselves a community that supports there yearning and effort to heal them selves.
