6 PILLARS OF BUDOKON
BUDOKON is a philosophy with guiding universal principles, specifically that all mental activity (beliefs, thoughts, consciousness) is subjective and temporary.
Under this pillar of our system, we cover a broad range of topics including belief systems, perception, critical thinking, ego state, showing up, standing in truth, ethics, and values.
Build a process of thought-watching that allows you to identify emotion as a biochemical release. Change your perception of reality (your stories) by shifting your language, beliefs, and your personal stories.
Learn the power of food as medicine and poison. We study the effects of food on the physical and emotional body and how to determine which foods are right for our individual bodies. We also learn how to choose foods that are consistent with our ethics regarding content, packaging, and production methods.
Understand the value of maintaining the earth that we depend upon for our quality of life. We study ways to make practical shifts in our lives in order to reduce waste and consumer-driven habits. We empower ourselves with choices for our future sustainability as a species.
Develop skills to better communicate your needs and understand the needs of others. We study language and its effects on perception. We develop skills to be more tolerant and to contain our emotions until they are further processed and understood.
