A Consciousness-based Health Education programme (CbHE)
CbHE supports the aims of CbE by cultivating balance in mind, body and behaviour. This programme involves elements such as: self-pulse reading, simple Yoga breathing to restore balance, Yoga postures and dynamic exercise for flexibility and fitness, practical knowledge about healthy eating and knowledge about healthy daily and seasonal routines. CbHE also includes a consideration of the impact of the physical environment on health.
In the context of CbE, this approach to health education combines with Transcendental Meditation, with the aim of promoting:
- a balanced, naturally healthy, restful yet lively-and-integrated state of mind and body for every pupil and member of staff
- a happy, stress-free, coherent and nurturing yet educationally challenging social environment
- a physical environment that is healthy, uplifting and supportive of the aims of CbE.
