Healing ourselves and our planet.
Radical Self Care is anyone who wants to play a part in healing the mess we are in on planet Earth. It is based on the premise that if we live simpler, calmer more deeply connected lives where we take better care of ourselves, we will automatically start to take better care of our planet.
Your life is so busy you have no time or energy to do anything more.
You feel overwhelmed because it all seems so urgent.
You are already engaged but trying to do too much.
You know you are on track and committed but you struggle to keep going.
Calm down, to simplify and to create deeper connections in your life.
Find your unique purpose so you can share it with the world.
Live and work in a self sustaining way.
Fuel your work in the world with love and joy.
RSC is rooted in a wider definition of self.
Instead of seeing our ourselves as individuals contained within the bodies we inhabit, we extend that sense of self out in ever widening circles.
We come to understand that we live nested within spheres of influence and interconnectedness. We belong not only to ourselves but within our families, groups of friends, our communities, culture, nation and ultimately the planet.
- How we care for our mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, social and environmental well being affects not only us but all the circles in which we belong; our larger self.
- What we put out there be it poisonous chemicals, self-loathing, anger or love will affect the world in which we live, which in turn affects us, we are interconnected.
Many of us know that something has to be done about the way the human race is living on planet Earth. There is an urgency now about the changes we need and how we might implement them.
It is easy to feel impotent in the face of the mounting environmental disasters, resource depletion, injustices and climate chaos. We know that much of what needs done will require brave and courageous law makers and politicians to act but so far there is limited evidence of this.
This is why Radical Self Care believes the place to start is with ourselves.
When we are full to the brim with self care it creates an internal abundance which starts to overflow. This excess becomes available to share, we then have the capacity to take part in the healing of our world.
The better we feel the more able we are to step into our power and potential. We fully align with our authentic self and engage with our purpose; that unique part we have to play in the Great Turning to a sustainable way of life on Earth for all.
Currently many of us live ridiculously busy lives. There’s way too much going on and life has become a plate spinning, ball juggling one person wild circus act we barely cope with. On top of all this our concern about the state of the planet leaves us with a gnawing feeling that we should be doing more.
This state of affairs can lead to ill heath either physical, mental or both. Our biological and psychological capacity is to the stressed to the limit and something has to give.
This is our wake-up call.
Our emotional and physical dis-ease are the sign posts showing us somethings out of balance.
Our feelings of anger, sadness, overwhelm or even being numb to it all, although valid responses to busy lives and distressing world events, will often be fuelled by unresolved issues in our own lives.
This combination results in ill health. Just like the planet our systems begin to fail.
We therefore practice Radical Self Care not only to save ourselves but to save our planet. We understand the interconnectedness of all things and that by healing what ails us we bring healing to the whole world.
As we recover from the madness of modern life and the other conditions that created the mess we were in, we find ourselves getting clear about what we CAN do to make a difference. We understand how important the part we have to play in healing our world actually is and the time, energy and enthusiasm to get on with it becomes available.
“I cannot do all the good that the world needs. But the world needs all the good that I can do.”
As part of my own RSC I am currently on an extended break from social media, in particular Facebook, so I am therefore grateful for any help you can offer to spread the word about Radical Self Care.
