Pathways to Wellbeing; A program for living well.

To gain access to living well requires an understanding that lifestyle, health and wellbeing are intimately connected.

Our state of health is influenced significantly by our present and past lifestyle choices. We make these choices moment by moment, consciously or unconsciously.

To enhance health it is necessary to be able to make health-enhancing lifestyle choices ongoingly as part of daily living.

The essential aspects of this is mindfullness, the awareness of every part of us and our connection to everything around us and self discipline.

Pathways To Wellbeing is a road map for living consciously and maintaining health.

Being aware of and incorporating the 12 Pathways to Wellbeing components into your life provides access to living well.

The 12 pathways are not necessarily distinct. Where they merge, their effectiveness is enhanced.

Human knowledge and understanding is rarely original or unique. Each understanding is based on the collective wisdom that has come before.

The Pathways to Wellbeing framework was inspired by our working with many inspiring teachers, individuals and colleagues over many years.
