What we're about
We are those who have gone through the programs at Scripps Integrative Medicine since 1997: Lifestyle Change Program/Healing Hearts/Ornish Reversing Heart Disease. We are a group who realizes that staying in contact with each other offers support to maintain and sustain a healthy lifestyle and perspective of taking care our ourselves: mind/body/spirit/emotionally. We are a group who have learned about forgiveness, gratitude, appreciation, mindfulness and opening our hearts to each other and to the world. We are reminded of Gandhi: Be the change you want to see in the world. We realize that ongoing support assists all of us. We want to create opportunities where we can gather and be present and listen to each others' stories. We want to share the gift of healing that we all carry within us. We are reminded by James Hillman: We may not fix the problem or problems but we have found a larger space in which to hold the problem. This is the key element of healing.
