Scarlett Lewis is a mother of a child, Jesse Lewis, murdered during the Sandy Hook Elementary School tragedy in December of 2012. At the time of the tragedy, several organizations came into Newtown Connecticut to assist survivors, parents, teachers, and community by sharing bioenergetic wellness tools and programs through special trauma teams. Scarlett was introduced to the tools from Emotional Freedom Technique through the Tapping Solution™, Therapeutic Touch® and Masgutova NeuroReflex Integration™ (MNRI). Along her path of recovery, forgiveness, and resiliency she has received and researched many of these wellness solutions, as well as the need for everyone to have Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) opportunities to avoid future tragedies.
Scarlett was determined to become part of the solution to the issues that we’re seeing in our society—and that also caused the tragedy. She founded the non-profit Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement and became an advocate for SEL and character development that teaches children how to manage their emotions, feel connected, and have healthy relationships. Speaking across the US and internationally to diverse audiences, Scarlett urges everyone to become part of the solution.
The Choose Love program influences schools, homes, communities, athletics, and the workplace. A no-cost, comprehensive, lifespan, next generation SEL and character development program, the program includes teaching children and adults how to thoughtfully respond with love in any situation, handle adversity, and have courageous conversations by using the Choose Love Formula of: Courage + Gratitude + Forgiveness + Compassion-in-Action = Choosing Love. Choose Love has been extended into homes, communities, athletics, and the workplace. The programs have been accessed in all 50 states and 100 countries, reaching more than 1.9 million children.
CanBeWell has a special affiliate relationship with the Choose Love Movement, with four of the CanBeWell Leadership Team members being Choose Love Ambassadors for Canada. Together they are forging a path for others with bioenergetic wellness tools to support trauma situations, and to develop language and skills to be a part of the movement for every day resiliency and self-care.
“Creating a Formula for Post Traumatic Growth to Rebuild, Rebound and Revitalize with the Jesse Lewis Choose Love Movement”
For those how have had the fortune of learning a BioEnergetic Wellness technique, and perhaps built a wellness toolbox, we may realize the gifts the tools provide us for our own self-care. We also may have developed a profession or a gathering of people to grow and learn more about the tools or to share them in client sessions or workshops. What is the level of impact that they can have on those around us?
Join Scarlett Lewis as she chats with Michelle Greenwell, CanBeWell President, about the tools used in her hometown of Newtown, CT when the mass shooting occurred. She shares the value of the trauma teams that came to the area to support victims, families, community, schools and more to overcome the tragedy. She also talks about Post Traumatic Growth and the opportunities that we have to forgive, to provide compassion for others, to be grateful for new opportunities, and to have the courage to take those first few steps forward. Her knowledge of the personal success of bioenergetic wellness tools is profound and inspiring. The opportunity for all of us to use our tools for others is profound and eye-opening. How might you be using your tools and sharing with others? Would you be able to create a trauma team, or provide post traumatic growth opportunities? We encourage you to begin your Pre-Summit activities with the two presentations shared by Scarlett. Consider what her message can mean to you and those around you. You can find the two presentations on our YouTube Channel for CanBeWell.
