Our mantra is your well-being
The name MensCorpore comes from a line of verse written by the Latin poet Juvenal.
``Mens sana in corpore sano...``
. . . a healthy mind in a healthy body.
The physical self and the mental-emotional self are interdependent. Our health depends on this relationship, the maintenance of wellness at all levels.
We recognize six key elements, six “sources” from which well-being derives: Body, Heart, Mind, Food, Relationships, and Environment. Each is inseparable from the others.
Body: physical health, suppleness, tone, posture—all maintained and in dynamic equilibrium
Heart: the spectrum of emotions—recognized, welcomed, and expressed as part of a whole
Mind: memory, imagination, expectations, prejudice—mental awareness increases our range of choice
Food: we are what we eat, everything we eat—table manners, shopping lists, restaurant menus, traditions
Relationships: cultivating, nourishing, and reinforcing links to others—connectivity increase our own quality of life
Environment: we are immersed in the ecosphere—we are the environment, we live its health
As adults, we learn through experience.
Adults primarly learn from personal experience, whether through major life challenges or everyday problem solving. MensCorpore values human experience—it is a point of arrival and departure at once. We intertwine doing and learning in our programs. Each is customize to the client, offering prompts and interactive moments that enhance the potential for learning.
Mind and body on the border between the personal and professional
More than ever, learning crosses the boundaries between our private lives and work environments. These spaces and times tend to blur together, bringing significant impact on both fronts. Such blurring can generate internal confusion, but it can also show us ways in which our tools, attitudes, and skills can be shared across the different spheres of our lives.
In both cases, however, personal and relational well-being must be protected. MensCorpore’s learning experiences help clarify and harmonize our boundaries, generating value for both individuals and groups.
