CanBeWell Members are Publishing Resources for the public.
CanBeWell is pleased to announce the official launching of several publications by four of our members. Natascha Polomski, Tanya Levy, Paula Nowak Droog, and Michelle Greenwell, who are Canadian Ambassadors for the Choose Love Movement, have spent the last year creating resources for parents, educators, students, and adults to support their well-being and their self-care.
Launched in the summer of 2021 was the BioEnergetic Essentials Book to share some of the simplest and most profound tools of BioEnergetic Wellness disciplines. Supporting the CanBeWell partners to help spread the word about self-care tools, this resource has been offered as a FREE pdf on our website, as well as a hardcopy version available from the authors (see below) and the Shop at the Choose Love Movement.
Also launched at this time was a Deck of Cards that brought the BioEnergetic Wellness tools to life through games and formula building. This deck includes tools from Levels 1-4 of Touch for Health, as well as NeuroReflex Integration, Yoga, Tai Chi and more. They can be purchased from the authors Levy, Droog, and Greenwell (see below) and are in the Shop at the Choose Love Movement. For those looking to learn how to use the cards there are videos available from Michelle Greenwell’s YouTube Channel. They are also available on the Choose Love Movement’s YouTube Channel.
Launched in March 2022 is the Self-Care Essentials for Educators Book. Bringing the Choose Love Formula with Courage, Gratitude, Forgiveness and Compassion-in-Action throughout the tools, this special edition was created to support the challenges that educators and leaders have faced through the pandemic. With a focus on putting Inner Compassion first, this book shares tips and tools to help people feel empowered for their well-being and provide daily plans to keep the body, mind, and spirit in balance. Now launching officially with the Choose Love Movement, with a forward written by Foundation founder, Scarlett Lewis, this book will bring special programs forward to assist with the end of the year challenges with burnout, fatigue, and anxiety. It also provides special suggestions for how to share with family and students.

The Canadian Ambassador team is proud to be representing CanBeWell in such a special way, and with some of the best tools we have, to share in our profession for self-empowerment. We hope you find the resources valuable and join us in celebrating their availability and for supporting outreach to others to help create connection in these isolating and trying times.
