What is the Integral Movement?
“The word integral means comprehensive, inclusive, non-marginalizing, embracing. Integral approaches to any field attempt to be exactly that: to include as many perspectives, styles, and methodologies as possible within a coherent view of the topic. In a certain sense, integral approaches are “meta-paradigms,” or ways to draw together an already existing number of separate paradigms into an interrelated network of approaches that are mutually enriching.”
Integral health therefore includes physical, mental & emotional health, healthy relationship & society. Other terms might include integrative or holistic. This “whole person” approaches to health and healing moves beyond the disease-focused system associated with many areas of conventional medicine.The Wellness Centre Wollongong is embracing this Integrally Informed paradigm as the basis of the centres philosophy and approach to its services including therapies, pilates/yoga/meditation and educational/experiencial workshops.
We believe an expanding of consciousness & awareness (waking up) to be key ingredient of an integral health approach. Becoming aware and seeing the bigger picture, moving beyond our limiting self centred beliefs is our challenge. You are welcome to join us.
