“Understanding someone’s suffering is the best gift you can give another person. Understanding is love’s other name. If you don’t understand, you can’t love.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh,
We strive to provide resources, care and education.
We serve to uplift humanity and our world by providing resources, caring for people and the environment, and teaching skills that bring health and well-being to individuals and society as a whole.
As we look around we can see that within humanity and our world there are struggles, conflicts, and inequalities. We serve to identify problems and find solutions.
To help find solutions Tennessee Holistic Wellness, Inc. has 3 main goals are:
- Provide Resources- We believe that people have rights to having their basic needs fulfilled: nutritious food, clean water, adequate clothing and shelter, access to health care, and positive social interactions. When these needs are not fulfilled and individuals or groups are unable to fulfill these needs then it is the responsibility for others to help. Once people are able to receive those basic needs then it is easier for people to cultivate a sense of peace and well-being for themselves and those they care about. We strive to identify the places where those needs are lacking in our community and provide resources for people.
- Provide Care for People and the Environment- We believe all living things including people, animals and plants deserve care. We, also, believe that other aspects of the environment including rocks and water, as being part of our world, deserve care, too. Care for humans, animals, and plants include providing access to the basic needs in goal 1. However, this also includes believing all living things deserve respect, compassion and love. We serve to not only provide resources but also provide an atmosphere where humans, animals and plants also receive appreciation for their natural abilities, talents, and unique place on Earth. Those aspects of the environment that are not living deserve the same respect. Water and rocks should be respected, not only for their ability to help humans progress but for their fundamental existence in our world. We must use these items with intentionality and preserve them as essential parts of our world.
- Teach Skills that Bring Health and Well-being- We believe everyone has an innate capacity for health and well-being. Sometimes we need to learn skills to more fully utilize our abilities to create that within ourselves and around us. We will provide opportunities through our services, workshops, classes, retreats, and various forms of media where people can learn how activate their own potential for bringing health and well-being into their lives.
