The Integrative Wellbeing Training Program
In UUI's new Integrative Wellbeing Training Program, you will discover fuller and deeper states of mental, emotional, bodily, and spiritual wellbeing. These manifest as the experience of present-moment awareness, love of oneself and others, joy and happiness, a sense of meaning and purpose in life, health, mindful living, physical health, the ability to manage stress, and profound satisfaction in the actualization of one's talents. In this program, you will explore the source of true holistic wellbeing, which is spiritual in nature, and that life is about actualizing our biological, mindal, and spiritual endowments
The Integrative Wellbeing Training Program offers two tracks:
Both tracks will feature a core curriculum of five courses plus elective courses in the areas of specialization. The five core courses focus on the basic concepts and principles of Physical Wellbeing, Emotional Wellbeing, Intellectual Wellbeing, Spiritual and Soul Wellbeing, and Integrative Wellbeing. In addition, the program will eventually include courses in the areas of social, occupational, and environmental wellbeing.
The five core areas are described below:
1. Spiritual and Soul Wellbeing
Spiritual wellness involves having a set of guiding beliefs, practices, principles, or values that help give direction to one's life. There is a religious dimension to the human mind which, when activated, contributes greatly to the person's holistic wellbeing. Spiritual wellbeing encompasses a high level of faith, hope and commitment to our individual beliefs which provide a sense of meaning and purpose in our life. Prayer, meditation, and worship are practices which foster a connection to the Spirit. The spiritual nucleus of the self is the source of the drive to seek meaning and purpose in human existence, to question everything and to appreciate the things which cannot be readily explained or understood. A spiritually-led person seeks to harmonize the values and meanings of the inner and outer worlds of the self.
2. Emotional Wellbeing
3. Intellectual Wellbeing
4. Physical Wellbeing
Maintaining the fitness of our body at genetic and cellular levels through good habits like healthy food intake, physical activity and exercise, and adequate sleep contributes to our physical wellbeing so that we can perform well in daily living.
5. Integrative Wellbeing
In addition, future courses will be added to the curriculum which will explore aspects of social, occupational, and environmental wellbeing.
The Integrative Wellbeing Coaching Track
The Coaching track requires three additional courses in coaching and mentoring in order to become a certified Integrative Wellbeing Coach.
