Interesting perspective on systemic living... :)
"The nematodes, it turns out, are terraformers. They change the community of bacteria and fungi that live on the brood ball, suppressing certain species while boosting others. The bacteria that become more common include species that are known to live in insect guts and help their hosts digest wood and other tough plant fibers. By contrast, many fungi, including species that could potentially infect the beetle larvae, became rarer. In other words, thanks to the nematodes, the larvae are more likely to encounter microbes that aid their digestion and less likely to encounter those that cause them harm."
According to psychological theory, awareness can develop when we rely on the critical skills involved in mental mastery. For this reason it’s not enough to know, you need to understand how and when your actions can make a difference.
This is true for all skills, no matter the context to which they are being applied. When it comes to mental balance, it is difficult to feel at your best all the time, as the mental skills involved in self-control are abstract and partially unconscious.
Skill development is a central component in Dialectic and Behavioural Therapy (DBT), where social interactions, mindfulness and acceptance are some of the most important elements to consider for promoting the state of well-being.
Applying mental skills in our day-to-day life can become a daunting task, as distress frequently reminds us of just how far we are from achieving a mindful way of living. For this reason, I created an experimental group approach, where you can learn to master the essential skills through ongoing collaboration. Below you can see the groups I currently run. Each group is focussed on specific mental skills, for approaching both distress (impaired functioning) and wellbeing (mental strength).
The mindset labs are available both online and face-to face, so that you may benefit of affordable quality support no matter where you are. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
