What is “Radical Wellness”?
“[A] way of life that is oriented toward optimal collective health and well-being, which consequently feeds individual health and well-being.
[Individuals integrate] critical consciousness into the body, mind and spirit for the purpose of working against inequality and social injustice that is deeply rooted in societal communities.”
– Javier F. Casado Pérez, assistant professor of counselor education at Portland State University and a national certified counselor
OK…what the heck does that mean?
To me, Radical Wellness is a way of caring for oneself with the betterment of self and community in mind. Giving back to and nourishing your community is absolutely a form of self-care!
