Have you ever felt like there was a better way to live? There are simple ways make a positive impact in my life and the lives of others by focussing on holistic and ethical living.
Ethical living means being aware of the living and work conditions of the people that are behind the products and brands we use and support in our lives. It is the philosophy of making decisions for daily life which take into account ethics and moral values, particularly with regard to consumerism, sustainability, environmentalism, wildlife and animal welfare.
Holistic living is more than focusing on holistic healing techniques which focus on healing the body, mind and spirit. When approaching life with a holistic view, a person continues to live holistically even after the healing has taken place. Furthermore, the healing is reflected out into the world to include healing others and the planet. Holistic living consists then of bringing harmony and balance to the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual dimensions of all living things, beyond the self.
Another term that is often used interchangeably is ‘conscious living’. It is usually defined as making conscious choices for a healthier environment. This too, is only one aspect of true conscious living. This conscious effort is equally important for the choices we make in how we treat ourselves, fellow human beings, and all living creatures within the larger environment.
This meetup is meant to be a place that focuses on events that support ethical and holistic living in the greater Salt Lake area. We hope you can join us!
