Health Realization in a nutshell
What is Health Realization?
Health Realization/ 3 Principles is a philosophy that has been identified as a best practice for resilience and strength- based programing. When used as a foundation to enhance well-being to organizations, individuals, families, and communities, the Three Principles of this model transform resilience from a good idea to an achievable reality.
A premise within this philosophy adheres to innate health and resilience as an unlimited, ever present, natural resource and capacity within all human beings. As people understand how their inner technology works they connect with this natural resource and live in higher states of well- being. They are able to care and serve others as well as themselves with common sense, compassion and understanding. This results in natural and deep connections personally and professionally. Through this understanding people are able to direct others to their own internal guidance system to navigate their way through life with greater ease. People are able to rise above and beyond their life circumstances.
Benefits for individuals
This understanding is a gift for anyone who feels stressed, overwhelmed, too busy, or for those who desire a more manageable, joyful and meaningful life. People learn how to maintain their peace of mind regardless of what is happening in their lives. It provides tools to stay grounded in challenging times and live life with greater presence allowing the experience of improved relationships. People consistently report feeling less worry, anxiety, and burnout. They experience an increase in personal effectiveness, mindfulness, creativity, job satisfaction and improved physical health.
Benefits to organizations and managers
Health Realization/Three Principles offers a "best practice" to deal with customer service, diversity, conflict resolution, transition and change, working with difficult people, and other employee issues. It provides a common neutral language that can be used throughout the organization. As employees feel empowered, relationships and team work improve. They are more creative and operate in a "state of service." They enjoy coming to work and there is an increase in productivity and morale. Organizations benefit from a cost savings when there is a decrease in turnover rates, benefits cost and liabilities. There is a natural decrease in the demands on the managers and supervisors by employees and the organization.
In times when employees are asked to do more with less, they manage the workload with improved quality and less commiseration. They create healthier professional relationships and work environments. They transition through change with more ease and notice a direct correlation between the health of the helper and the impact on clients and outcomes.

After hearing from my respected colleagues about the potential benefits of Health Realization, I decided to commit to my first class. I was a bit skeptical as it was hard for me to get past my “in-the-box” thinking. Here I am years later, valueing Health Realization and Cindi's teaching style above and beyond ANY academic, personal or professional development that I have experienced. It has given me insights into my innate core and has made me a more grounded, patient, and insightful person. If you are open to making yourself the best you can be, take the plunge- you won't be sorry. ~ann, coordinator of community education
Health Realization showed me that I have the power to create my reality. Even when faced with devastating challenges, I can be optimistic and build a life that is better than what I had before!
