We define living authentically in the following way:
We desire to be practitioners of the information that we share as best practices for mental wellness. We believe that when we live with integrity we give our clients space to be their authentic self. This environment is essential for growth and discovery.
The core of this for me is living wholly. Whole living gives us freedom and space, which in turn gives people around us freedom and space to live wholly as well. From the beginning we said that we did not want to be mental health practitioners that had all the answers but practiced none of them for ourselves.
Our mental health is important, especially so if we are going to be talking about the importance of mental health. So I hold an open door policy with all people. Anyone at anytime can ask me how I am doing mentally, physically, or spiritually and I will answer them with the truth. Even when the truth doesn't sound good.
In my personal yoga practice I take time to ask myself this question, "How am I feeling today?" Then I give space for myself to answer that question, honestly and completely. No rushing through the response. Giving myself space and grace in this way, allows me to do the same for those who are around me. If you have practiced yoga with me at The Journey International, you will have noticed that we do this same thing when we practice together.
Can you imagine a place where you can be 100% free to be who you are without fear of judgement, rejection, or criticism? I hope that this is the space that we have created at our little center at 8th circle, Amman. We do this by adhering to this value of living authentically. If you want to experience this first hand, contact us to make an appointment with one of our therapist or register for a yoga class.
