Video Transcript (with slight edits)

Welcome, welcome everyone, Dr. Stephen Hobbs here from the WELLth movement. 

I just want to share an update video with this YouTube channel (WellthLearningTV). I want to give you a sense of where we're going for 2023. 

It's the beginning of February. We've made our decisions which way we want to go, and we want to share that with you. 

And we're going to do that through seven keywords and a couple of keyword phrases. Over time, we'll be bringing videos that could be anywhere from five minutes to eight minutes to 13 minutes, to 21 minutes long. Sometimes we'll do interviews which may go longer than that, but we'll attempt to keep it within that 34 minutes. 

With that, let me just share with you what these keywords are. And I have a Google jam I want to share with you. So, here we go. Let me bring it up.

What's going to happen on the channel? We are going to be looking at the seven keywords which are on the left of the screen. [[Also, see the Vision Board image below.]]

The first word we will look at is wellth. Now, you'll notice it's spelled W. E, L, L, t, h, it's something that I found almost 30 years ago when I was experimenting with my second iteration of being an entrepreneur, and it was a play on wealth with an A. This is wellth with two l's and it lines up with the notion of well-being and well-living to the nth degree.

The other component that slid in at that point in time was the word movement. It was because of an understanding that this wellth of well-being and well-living actually expresses movement. There's the physicality of self in movement, but it's all the way up into movements. That would be socially cultural. Think of the environmental movement as an example, the water movement. There are many ways in which to look at movement through a social-cultural lens. We wanted to bring that in because there is the well-being of the movement for self and well living of the movement with others.

The next word that we’ll bring forward is the concept of legacy…Legacy is about the useful what's that you gift others. so they can learn something from your lived experience. The useful what's our time… effort… money. That's what you have available. Those are the resources that you allocate and therefore, there's a legacy that you will share. So that people understand how you intend to share and then live. Also, it's a sense of what you're going to leave. And therefore, the legacy can link back into the wellth movement. There are things you do by yourself. There are things you do with others. Being with others, your legacy story, legacy projects, legacy contributions are some things that are related to being yourself.

The next word is nature. I find that nature is a really wonderful educator. About self-care educator time, spent meditation being in the outer doors for walks, but it's also a great living systems educator. It's a way to understand what's unfolding around us. In the sense of well, there's the world that we build as humans. There's the earth that we interact with from a world into the earth and we have our, can wild kin kind of idea? What does that do for us? How do we interact with it? So there's a “nature aspect” to your legacy. For some of you, you might actually look at a nature inspired, nature aware project that you want to support. I have a couple that I'm interacting with and over time, I'll be introducing them to you. And I have a major legacy project that has a nature aware component to it. That I'll be sharing with you.

The EX is for experience. One way we learn is to experience the experiences that we create? How do we experience the extraordinary in our llives 

We guide olders to be elders, who mentor, who share their legacy, who experience the extraordinary. It's these ideas that we want to bring forward for olders to be elders. And therefore, how do we play with this notion of experience, set up experience to reflect on our experiences, and benefit from them? 

The next word is education because to do this, there is a point of view that I would offer. When you listen, you learn; where you share, you educate. Therefore, you are always in a listening or educating mode.

When you go to share who you are, share your legacy, share your movement, there is an education element that goes with that. And when you come to understand that, then you can select which kind of “educating approach” fits into what's taking place at the time!

And one way that I would encourage people who are older to be elders, to look at mentoring, because it taps into your lived experience, the experience of the extraordinary that you've had over the years. And it's a way in which to think about organizing your legacy projects and legacy stories. You want to share the legacy contributions that you intend to leave.

The next word is safety. The one topic that has underpinned my efforts over the years – my work around the world, the projects that I've worked on, the workshops I've offered, the courses I’ve facilitated, the books I’ve written, is safety.

Safety in the sense of being alert to the environment while alert to your occupation, the work that you're doing. And how are you looking at making sure no one gets hurt… whether yourself while paying attention to what's going on around you. Remain alert to mechanisms of injury and illness. 

I'll be talking more about this topic in other videos. I actually had the pleasure of writing a wilderness remote first aid book. And this is where the safety element came through from my days of spending a lot of time and extraordinary experiences with nature, and I'll be pulling from those to bring it forward that can support you in being in nature yourself.

There are two really important ideas I want to share with you. 

The first one is the notion of stay found.

There are a lot of persons in this world who find themselves in a position where they got lost or they're getting lost and that's unfortunate unless you're doing it with intention. 

Sometimes being in nature from an extraordinary experience point of view and you just sort of want to be guided by what's happening – you could say I’m intentionally getting lost (topic for another time). 

People are getting lost in the noise that surrounds them (us) and we want to bring forward ideas about how to stay found and use these seven keywords mentioned already. 

We can help you understand this notion of Stay Found and why that's important in being for the world, with the planet, from the whole. 

The other element that we will work with is walking (with nature).

If you want to move from A to B in your life? What is the way you're going to do that movement? The way we're going to suggest is walking both literally and metaphorically – with nature as an educator. 

It's not to say that you couldn't run, cycle, drive, fly, canoe, kayak, etc.. 

Those are all different ways in which you can move from A to B. We help you sense and experience C.

Activities, Behavior, and Consequences – while walking – is a great way to bring your awareness to the foreground. Questions like:
What are the activities I'm doing?
What are the behaviors I'm showing?
What are the consequences I will see?
