UGCSI Vice Chancellors Facilitate Online Environmental Wellness Session for Opioid Recovery Program

Pennsylvania, USA ---- UGCSI Vice Chancellors, Chris and Carol Green facilitated an online Holistic Wellness Presentation for Life Esteem Holistic Wellness Center in Harrisburg, PA. This session’s topic was Environmental Wellness and it featured special guest presenter, Dr. Vikram Parrarkine, the founder of PEACE, USA.

Environmental Wellness is one of the Eight Dimensions of Wellness, which are all deemed to be necessary in order for an individual to experience and have a healthy, balanced and meaningful life. The Eight Dimensions of Wellness are: Social Wellness, Emotional Wellness, Spiritual Wellness, Intellectual Wellness, Physical Wellness, Financial Wellness, Occupational Wellness, and Environmental Wellness.

“We found the session to be fascinating and enlightening,” said Professor Chris Green, “Dr. Vikram brought tremendous insight and understanding to all as he connected us, in a fresh way, to the world around us.”

The objective of the session was that all participants would:

1. Have an understanding of what is meant by the term “Environmental Wellness”

2. Identify and/or confirm at least one area where they can improve their relationship with environmental wellness, and

3. Recognize the connection between exercise, nutrition and rest to physical wellness.

According to Dr. Pattarkine, a recognized international leader in environmental sustainability and renewal energy, “Environmental wellness is realizing we are a part of the environment and the environment is a part of us.”

Dr. Pattarkine brought forth a masterful presentation as he helped the participants understand such concepts as Assimilative Capacity,  which is the ability of the environment or a portion of the environment (such as a stream, lake, air mass, or soil layer) to carry waste material without adverse effects on the environment or on users of its resources. He showed how pollution occurs only when the assimilative capacity is exceeded. He also showed how the covid-19 lockdowns have given the environment the opportunity to recover. 

In concluding, Dr. Pattarkine gave practical advice on how to respond individually. He recommended that the online audience:

Live simply – at the need level

Do not hoard unnecessarily

Eat well – eat to live; not live to eat

Exercise regularly

Help others (as possible)

Meditate, contemplate

The presentation was followed by Q & A and then Professors Chris and Carol Green led a discussion about the changes the participants have noticed in the environment, and even in the behavior of the animals in their neighborhoods and communities. They also focused on the parallels between environmental wellness and physical wellness. Then they related these thoughts to what people can do in their personal lives, to make informed decisions regarding the environment and their health and wellness.

The Wellness Series host, and founder of the Life Esteem Holistic Wellness Center, Pat Gadsden, concluded the online session with high praise for Dr. Pattarkine and thanked all of the participants for their contributions to an outstanding session.

UGCSI Vice Chancellors Promote Process of Success in Africa, Globally

 

Mozambique, Africa ---United Graduate College and Seminary International Vice Chancellors, Drs. Chris and Carol Green and Dr. Mateus Mutola, joined together today on The Africa Civility Show. Dr. Mutola invited the Greens to be his first guest to launch an epic episode to set the tone for the New Year. 

The Africa Civility Show (TACS) is a Live stream platform based in Mozambique, Africa, for the gathering of hundreds of thoughtful and iconic Leaders, Influencers, Humanitarians and Doers from around the world, who share a common interest in practical solutions for the sustainable development of Africa.

The Africa Civility Show expects to reshape the way the world thinks about and looks at Africa and help rebuild her confidence in herself, so she becomes the Oasis of the world.

"It was an honor be invited back to TACS," Vice Chancellors Chris and Carol Green commented, "Dr. Mutola is a brilliant educator and cutting-edge philosopher. We loved the way he facilitated the conversation and helped connect the discussion to the the heart of his audience. We could see that he has his finger on the pulse of his community, country and continent."

The topic centered around the Green's soon-coming book that will speak to the Process that every human being must go through in order to bring forth the Success that they are already created to be. That process involves understanding 8 keys that will help an individual or an organization navigate through life and its challenges. 

The Green's insisted that Success begins with God. Drawing from the Biblical reference of Psalm 139, the Vice Chancellors explained that Success is encoded in our DNA. The very fact that God has given us life means we are the manifestation of God's Success released on Earth. Therefore, we are not striving to be successful, but we are yielding to a process that will reveal the Success that God has created us to be.

Dr, Mutola honed in on the painful part of the process by posing questions on how the audience can get past the dead ends, road blocks, despair, dark clouds and disappointments in life. The Greens responded with a powerful message on how to push past your pain and go through the process of manifesting the Success that is already within you.

"The answers were so powerful and so profound," expressed Dr. Mutola, "After one hour of dialogue, we only covered two of the eight keys. However, I felt the listeners needed time to digest, dissect and really grasp the nuggets of wisdom that were being presented."

The new book by Drs. Chris and Carol Green will be titled: Rest, Retreats, Revival and other Comedies: You are Success in Process. These authors of several books and Searcher Education leaders said they realize the title is very different, but are confident that it will make sense as readers walk through the keys. 

In the meantime, Dr Mutola said,"We must have them back on the show to continue releasing the other six keys in the Process of Success."
