Re: In promoting ideal health and wellness for everyone.
I said informed. That doesn't necessarily mean you have to agree with it or not, understand it or not, or practice it or not. The point is that you are informed of all theories, all various options and all application of those theories and options for the gain that one day or not you may choose to pursue more curiosity in the information or the activity module if you want. For example, if a crime happened in your neighborhood and you wanted to understand what that was about. Or another example, if you had a relationship problem and wanted to understand why did the conflict happened. Or yet even another example, if you had cancer and wasn't really benefiting from Orthodox advice and wanted to try if an Eastern or an Alternative approach hoping it might suit you better or aid and complement with the Orthodox advice. So what I mean is that there's the potential that you might even consider the information that was learned, or if some of you think passed by your head (forgotten or not learned) in such courses that the information might be of valuable use later in life. If everyone was at least inform of all options and theories and were given the understanding of complications and validity in such approaches (as another poster had concerns about) they will know how to potentially take action, understand one's symptoms (mentally, emotionally, and somatically (sp?)) and/or also understand societal phenomenon better, and also use that information for others such as family and friends if they are in need, affected, or troubled.
As another person mention of extension of such application elsewhere, this course structure ideally can go beyond college/university in high schools, clinics, hospitals, community centers, government agencies, more authentic talk shows, political analysis, and fitness and health shows on television, promoting videos, audio CDs, classes, workshops, awareness events, etc.
I believe human beings fundamental nature are to be healthy actualized beings following whatever their unique bliss is (there own personal meaning in the world, their Jungian archetypes), global world concerned citizens, physically healthy and fit, caring, supporting, understanding and all the like in relationships, yet the problem is so obvious people are primarily Pavlovian classically conditioning responses to Hollywood entertainment (like someone said), Corporate backwashing, etc. in promoting destructive behaviors, and think naive, ignorant and less educated less informed options in pursuing ideals in self and society, plus being fixated and stuck at certain developmental stages whatever scheme that is out there (Freud, Loevinger, Erikson, Maslow, Gilligan, Graves, Mahler, etc.) where psychopathology begins and finding the hard way out through the lens of one's own experience and through relationships whether healthy or unhealthy leading them to freedom and understanding from suffering or most likely not like the finally pursuance of individual therapy which are all options that don't necessarily inform the individual at the start of the potential prevention. Can everyone understand now that comprehensive informative wellness is strongly needed in society on all levels of infrastructure? Or unless you agree with the conflicts, tensions, disease, and suffering the world is in. All you need to do is the injunction of turning on the television right now and get a taste of society that is less and not informed.
