Our motto is EDUCATION – SKILLS – INSPIRATION.
Pathways To Wellbeing
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 requires health-enhancing lifestyle choices to be part of daily living. The essential aspect of this is mindfulness and the awareness that our whole body is connected to and influenced by everything around us.
The framework of our approach is based on our comprehensive program called Pathways To Wellbeing.
Being aware of and incorporating the Pathways to Wellbeing into your life provides access to living well. The Pathways are not necessarily distinct. Where they merge, their effectiveness is enhanced.
The philosophy and programs of the Lewis Institute for Health and Wellbeing are based on the integration of current medical and scientific knowledge and the accumulated wisdom of many cultures.
Human knowledge and understanding are rarely original or unique. Each understanding is based on the collective wisdom that has come before. In particular, the Pathways to Wellbeing framework was inspired by working with Neal and Carla Hoptman as well as many other inspiring individuals over many years.
