Wellness is a healthy balance of the mind-body and spirit that results in an overall feeling of well-being. Rather than focusing on illness in human health, the Semel Institute is developing a holistic approach to empower individuals, families and communities to become aware of and make choices toward a more successful existence. We want to help individuals balance emotional, physical and social health to achieve overall health.
Our pioneering initiatives aim to foster mindful awareness across the lifespan through education and research to promote well-being and a more compassionate society.
