SALT is called a well-being basin. This is a space for like-minded individuals who engage in the #DIVEDEEPLIVEWELL practices of well-being. It’s in this place, coupled with SALT practices that we can have a shared hope for a more self-aware and grounded community (cue, “What the world needs now, is love, sweet [self] love. It’s the only thing that there’s just too little of…”). Who can name what song that movie was in?
well-being (noun) : the state of being happy, healthy, or prosperous.
For SALT purposes, well-being is conscious, intentional, self-aware, regulated connection to self and others in all areas of life. This can include our physical, sexual, emotional, financial, psychological, spiritual, social, personal professional parts. We are all of our many parts and the more we tap into and get curious about our parts, the more self-aware we can be and the more understanding and compassionate we can be with ourselves and others.
basin (noun) : an open usually circular vessel with sloping or curving sides used typically for holding water for washing.
For SALT purposes, a basin is a container for our feelings as we practice self-regulation ; a circle of like-minded salty folks ; and a space for becoming more self-aware. It’s here we can bring to the surface and cleanse ourselves of encounters, experiences, or relationships that do not meet our human needs, which will hopefully lead to improved well-being. SALT’s community is also a space to appreciate and celebrate needs that are being met!
It is with hopes that together we can better serve our salty souls, and also serve as leaders towards a more compassionate world by modeling more healthy relating for future generations. And remember, we are all similar here in that we all feel and we all have needs. May you find some comfort here …
