Holistic Education evolved out of the work of Dr Bernadette Carelse and became a Community Interest Company (CIC) in 2014. This company aims to improve understanding of and access to holistic approaches in educational contexts. Its goal is to inspire learning it terms of fundamental skills, including through awareness of self and life in general. The guiding principal is that meaning, and purpose develops through connecting with the community and cultivating qualities, such as compassion, friendliness and calm.
Holistic Education enables families, children, young people, schools staff and other professionals working in educational settings to improve levels of mental, emotional and physical health and well-being. It achieves this through providing mindfulness training, yoga classes and holistic therapies, including shiatsu and educational psychology services.
