Being well means having a balance between not only the different systems in the body, but also between the physiological, physical, psychological, emotional, social, cultural and spiritual systems that we are a part of. This is represented in the star logo of Sitara Wellbeing, both in terms of health and in terms of collaboration, living and learning together with others. Below is a description for what it means for health.
Each side of the dented triangles represent different systems in the body: the connective tissue system, the muscular system, the visceral system, the nervous system, the immune system, and the hormonal system. The lines of the triangle are curved rather than straight, to illustrate that there are no straight lines in the body. The lines connect and intersect: the systems in the body have their own specific functions, but they blend with each other, they are interdependent and function as a whole.
The smaller circle intersecting the triangles represents breath, nutrition, touch and movement, all which will have an impact on our health. They are essential for functioning of the different systems in the body, whereby the smaller circle intersects with the dented star.
The outer circle represents the individual. Who we are affects how we engage in the context we are in, it affects how we deal with our experiences. What we experience shapes who we are. The circle includes our frames of reference, our genes, our attitudes/state of mind and our behaviour.
The square represents the context. We are all part of a particular context, and that context will affect us directly, who we become and how we engage in life. There are four parts to this: our social context, our work/study context, our cultural context and our environmental context. At the points of intersection we impact, and are impacted by, the context we are a part of.
