|Many of us are finding that our values and interests are dramatically
changing. We are realizing that our cultural institutions cannot
provide us with the happiness and security that we seek. We are
discovering that happiness, security, and personal well-being
cannot be granted from outside sources. Instead, we are personally
responsible for creating these in our livesÑwe are the source
of our own well-being.
The current shift in consciousness toward more personal responsibility
for our lives is part of the movement we call "holism." The holistic
movement is rooted in the awareness that we ourselves are greater
than the sum of our parts. Viewed holistically -- we are more
than our body, our mind or our spirit. This perspective is creating
new approaches to health, education, and lifestyle.
In becoming more aware of our personal power, we grow more accepting
of ourselves. In doing so, we experience greater tolerance, appreciation
and respect for others. From this perspective, as a part of a
greater whole, each of us is contributing to the creation of a
more enlightened society.
I see The Holistic Networker as a resource for facilitating self-empowerment and personal
responsibility. I hope that the products, services and people
you discover here foster your growth and directly improve the
quality of your life.
