The Black Hawks Organization designed a health and wellness curriculum through holistic living with a spirit, mind, body approach. The spirit, mind, body approach focuses on three components: holistic wellness (spirit), creation through mental visualization (mind) and natural healing in health education (body). Through this curriculum, evolved three life-enhancing programs: Better Alternative Life and Natural Choice Education (B.A.L.A.N.C.E), Learning Educating and Preparing (L.E.A.P), and Growing Overcoming and Living Sensibly (G.O.A.L.S). In the BHO curriculum, we are teaching students to live free from illnesses and to eat properly, being creative and a free-thinker, learning to understand the body and to keep it fit, while applying it to the things we do in everyday life through a spirit mind, body approach. The description of our programs.
B.A.L.A.N.C.E - The program is designed to teach holistic wellness (spirit), creation through mental visualization (mind) and natural healing in health education (body) through our seminars and workshops. One of the main components is to educate, by having a hands-on experience with participants and showing visual aids to learn about holistic well-being.
L.E.A.P - The program is designed to teach culture, leadership, health, nutrition, creative arts, and physical fitness while teaching on the core classes each student needs for graduation. L.E.A.P is a program that offers courses from grades K-12th grade, vocational trade school, and Adult Learning. L.E.A.P also includes a Volunteer Program that each and any one of our students can be a part of.
G.O.A.L.S - The program is designed to educate students on achieving better health through proper nutrition, becoming physically fit, and developing ways to help reduce physical and mental stress through various physical activities, such as Taekwondo. Taekwondo will provide a place for students to focus and discipline their minds while having more control over their actions. Students will be able to stay in shape by exercising, stretching, and doing a range of cardiovascular workouts.
The Spirit CONTROLS the Mind which CONTROLS the Body! Think about it… Can one’s mind have life without a Spirit? Can one properly control the functions of the body without a mind? Can one demonstrate an outward manifestation of these teachings without a body?
Spirit: the force within a person that is believed to give the body life, energy, and power.
Mind: the part of a person that thinks, reasons, feels, and remembers.
Body: a person's whole physical self.
