The intention of Humanism is for all human beings to be happy. We explore simple ways how, using Ten Keys distilled from recent research findings in the field of psychology.
Humanism is a non-religious philosophy, based on liberal human values.
We practice techniques to sustain and build resilience across the lifespan.
Scientists have now identified not 5 but 33 human senses. We focus on 10 of them.
We value compassionate self acceptance as the firmest foundation for self esteem
We move to uproot sensations, thoughts & feelings in the body - to listen to and respond to helpfully.
Lifelong learning is vital in sustaining our wellbeing. Curiosity is at its root.
Realistic optimism allows us to acknowledge life's challenges, still focus on what's good.
Moving with intention allows us to frame our practice and give it direction.
Generosity of spirit, humour and easy acceptance of individual differences are key.
Connecting with our world
We all find inspiration in nature. As a Humanist, nature is important in giving you a sense of meaning and being 'part of something bigger.' We see our walking ~ or gardening ~ or visits to green spaces ~ as being a fundamental aspect of our holistic practice.
Connecting with one another
Joining in the yoga discussion with other Lotus Leaf Yogis & Friends, we can give and receive support from one other ~ both of which, research shows us, are equally important for mental health and wellbeing.
