Self-Centered Wellness

Self-Centered Wellness is about resisting the cries of burnout culture and the pressure to be everything to everyone. Self-Centered Wellness is about taking the time to care for ourselves, and beginning our journey from the truth and joy of exactly who we are.

Let’s face it, we aren’t raised being told to be self-centered. We don’t want to be self-centered. And you know what, most of us are really good at not being self-centered.

Instead, we look outside of ourselves for feedback. All. The. Time.

We take care of our people and our responsibilities. Juggling their needs. All. The. Time.

We search and we push and we analyze. Our appearance, our accomplishments, our choices - we see it all from the outside looking in. Trying to see ourselves through the eyes of our families, our friends, our colleagues and our Instagram account. Once it all looks just right, we’ll feel better. We just know we will.

We grow up living in a world that teaches us we can solve a lot of problems by controlling our bodies - looking perfect, feeling perfect, perfect performance. We are so focused on fixing our bodies that many of us have never even learned how to hear our bodies. We are always looking outside of ourselves for answers, when really what we are hungry for is permission to be ourselves, to love ourselves, and to listen to ourselves.

Self-Centered Wellness is about reorienting inward - clearing the noise, saying no, taking the time and investing in ourselves. Self-Centered Wellness is about hearing the music of our soul on the road to healing, and trusting that our pleasure has purpose.

Self-Centered Wellness is brave. It is possible. It is the journey inward, the journey home.

Self-Centered Wellness is about giving yourself the time and tools that you need to heal, grow, rejuvenate and expand. You open yourself up to a more authentic relationship with yourself, one with more grace and flexibility. You put down some of the fear, some of that extra baggage, and move with more ease.

One of the most important elements of Self-Centered Wellness is to treat yourself and your body with compassion. The word Jihi is broken into “ji”, which is to spread joy, and “hi”, which means to “ease pain.” Jihi is a word that represents the joy of healing and growth and authentic living. How beautiful that the word Jihi itself translates to “compassion.”

Our goal is to bring you inward, inviting you to a place of quiet, wellness, healing and joy. We hope to help you find space and alignment so you can sink into the joy of your deepest, truest being - your self.

This is self-centered wellness. Welcome.

We can’t wait to be on this journey with you.
