Wellolistic Mission Statement:
Wellolistic thinking encourages a holistic attitude and gives you a voice about issues that promote wellness for the body, mind, spirit, our society and the planet. It includes being proactively engaged in the overall well being of society and in your own state of personal health. Being “wellolistic” presumes a genuine inclusive caring for yourself, your family, your society, animals and the environment.
Wellolistic is a very broad concept which places a very high value on the health and wellness of people, the equality of women, the welfare of all animals, the sustainability and security of our food system including potable water, the wellness of our democratic political structure, the fitness of our financial-banking-corporate systems, and the environmental health of our planet."
Online Social Interaction: Social Networks
Wellolistic Inc. empowers people via our social networks to create massive positive change in the world. Issues such as "social wellness" or to be more precise "social unwellness" are fundamental to our cause. The basic premise of all our social networks is that massive change is needed: many, many people are unwell; people, particularly women, are not treated as equals; most animals, especially farm animals are being treated inhumanely; the environment is sick; and the socio-political-economic system just plain stinks. The Wellolistic group of social networks is a call to action to seek remedies for these cancerous tumours that have become our everyday social problems that we ignore at our peril. Sometimes, it seems we are all on dead end road leading to oblivion but that will only happen if we do not take action. How do we take action? In a word, we "write", we "connect" with like minded people, we "inspire" people to take action on critical causes and we "plan events" to spread the message. We use social media tools to get the "wellolistic message" out to all the people we know and they know. The tools provided consist of 8 different social networks focusing on some aspect or interest group around the concept of wellolistic as we define it. More social networks are possible and will be developed as the need arises. This is not another Facebook or Twitter. (We consider them virtual monopolies (as is Google) tied directly to the vested interests groups that want to preserve the status quo). We use these social network tools too as tools of convenience but our social networks are more about substantive issues such as health and wellness, equality, sustainability of our food system, our environment and our democratic principles, green issues, quality of life issues, and other wellolistic issues that matter for the overall health and wellness of people, animals and the planet.
In my opinion, our Wellolistic social media networks are just the right media because they facilitate public debate, organization and action but lots of support is needed for these networks to succeeed. Many members are needed to raise their voices and be heard. Tell your friends, your family, and anyone you meet. This is totally free and for all good causes. The more the public gets committed and organized using this social media, the better the future will be for the entire planet.
If we truly want to change our world for the better we cannot expect any government, political party, big corporation, or the military to do it for us. Right now most of these organizations are doing nothing but maintaining the status quo, "feathering their own nests" with no real positive directions in sight for the public at large. This is not acceptable and will lead to the total breakdown of civilization as we know it. The people with the power are making all the wrong decisions right now. This largely because, corporations (not people)are controlling the world's governments, via political donations and lobby money. Corporations only exist to make money, nothing else matters. They have no soul or conscious, no national identity or loyalty, no accountability to the people except a few select nameless shareholders. Many mega corpoarions have budgets that dwarf the budgets of several countries combined. Free trade deals between countries are only there to make it easier for companies to create more wealth and business opportunities for the owners of these companies. The general welfare of people is largely ignored except to pay lip service to new jobs to satisfy the electorate.
Our Wellolistic social networks have campaigns that focus on specific issues. Right now campaigns include "Say No to GMO", "Corporations are Not People", "Say No to Factory Farms", "Say Yes to CSA" More will be created as more members join.
Wellolistic Social Networks are created around positive sustainable causes that promote the Wellolistic Mission Statement. Health and Wellness, Women's Equality, Organics, Veganism and Vegetarianism, People with Disabilities, World Politics, Green Movement and Politics, and Animal Welfare and Animal Rights.
The good news is that we can do something but we must act fast and act now.
While all our social networks are free to join, it would be very helpful if people and businesses purchased advertising space to promote themselves and help us defray the cost associated with this service.
Direct Social Interaction
Wellolflix Inc is a sister campaign to Wellolistic Inc. Welloflix is a non profit group focused on bringing health, wellness and social documentaries to the public.
Welloflix is an example of direct social interaction as opposed to online interaction. It can also be a good combination of both.
The purpose of Welloflix is to educate and inform the public about the health, wellness and social issues that face us all. Much of the information presented in these documentaries is not made available to the general public via mass media channels but that does not mean it's not important. Mass media is controlled by Big Business and some big corporations (and governments too) would rather we stayed blissfully ignorant. The movies presented provide good discussion topics that can be continued on the social networks. Groups can be formed around certain subjects like "GMO'S" or "Plant based diets" for example.
Welloflix will always be looking for appropriate sponsors in order to offset the screening costs, hall rentals and other costs such as advertising etc.
The Expo is scheduled to be an annual event in Cobourg, Ontario. In 2013, it will held on May 25 th at the Lion's Community Centre on Elgin st E. in Cobourg. This event will showcase businesses and organizations which operate to further the cause of health and wellness in the community and will include all areas covered by our social networks : People Wellness, Animal Wellness, and Earth Wellness.
The Expo is another example of direct social interaction between providers of products and services and the consumers they serve. Unlike most health and wellness expo/shows, the relationships between providers and customers can be continued and strengthened via the appropriate social network operated by Wellolistic Inc.
