This work is based on my Balance & Harmony Holistic Model©, integrating the four levels of





Each level is like a leg on a table. As a table depends on the strength of each leg, so do each of us depend on each level as an important aspect in our life.

Combined, these levels help us become balanced and in harmony. Yet, when one leg is shorter than the others, the table wobbles. We all "wobble". By being present to our "wobble" we change, grow and re-balance - the process of life itself.

Some individuals, families, and peoples may have "shorter legs" - due to poverty, illness, racism, violence, or other challenges. Work to balance these levels in your life and in the lives of others.
