Helping the Helpers
We know how hard it can be for those who dedicate their lives to helping others. Despite the joy it brings, usually the process of improving other people’s lives means that our own must suffer. And being the kind of people we are, that is a sacrifice we are willing to make. However, it doesn’t have to be so, and actually your work would be made better if it wasn’t so.
We are put under an immeasurable level of stress and and emotional duress on a daily basis. We have to deal with horrible situations in which we see and interact with people who are suffering tremendously or who have gone through traumatic experiences, and we can’t help but to go through some of it ourselves in the process of helping them overcome their pain or resolve their precarious situation.
For some of us, being witness to or dealing with monstrous situations becomes part of our daily routine, and the impact that this can have on us emotionally and psychologically is incalculable. An individual that works with victims of abuse once told us she had to be taken out of court because she was crying more than the victim herself. We can’t help it. We feel their pain. And that is exactly the reason why we dedicate ourselves to this kind of work.
However, we feel that the stronger you are, the better you will be able to empower those who you serve. The more balanced you are emotionally and mentally, the better you will be able to help those who you serve to achieve the same. In the process of feeding others, we mustn’t forget to feed ourselves. You need to be balanced, healthy and strong to really make as much of a difference in the world and in other peoples’ lives as you can. You will be happier and healthier for it, and so will all those who you help and come in contact with.
Contact us for specifics about the training program.
Our goal is to partner with agencies, organizations, institutions and community leaders that work with the under-served, and underprivileged. We offer training to help those in need to overcome their emotional and mental afflictions by empowering them with holistic techniques that will help them achieve inner balance and better health. Besides working with underprivileged individuals and families, these are some examples of areas in which we can compliment the work of partner organizations:
Seniors and Older Adults
At a more advanced age, seniors and older adults are more likely to fall ill and suffer from physical ailments as well as being less likely to recover from a poor state of health. An estimated 2 million older adults suffer from clinical depression, the second highest incidence of any age group. People 65 and older also have the highest prevalence of Type 2 diabetes.
Furthermore, escalating health care and prescription drugs cost only add to the fact that more than ever seniors and older adults should understand and practice preventative methods that will keep than from falling ill as well as helping them energize and rejuvenate their body and mind. Heart for Humanity’s goal is to bring Master Tsai’s training system to our older generation in order to teach them these methods that also include how to live a healthy lifestyle in which health and joy are their permanent companions.
