In Pursuit of Wellness

“In Pursuit of Wellness,” a new series presented by the Global Wellness Institute and produced by BBC Storyworks Commercial Productions, dives into the world of wellness. The second of its kind, this online branded film series, which includes the film below produced for Cinim, explores how cultures and communities have been practicing wellness through centuries and passing the learnings down generations.

Core to the pursuit of wellness is a desire to better care for our communities, our spaces and ourselves – and this is something interpreted and embraced in different ways in different places around the world. This series brings together unique stories from wellness around the world and celebrates the core values that link these stories, of what it means to be well.

This series highlights that individual health and wellbeing are linked to the wellbeing of others and the world around us. Through human-led stories, this series collates experiences and skills from across the globe, with lessons that teach us how to care for our families, friends and communities, as well as ourselves.

Our Approach

Mentally well people have greater capacity to cope with the inevitable stress and strain of daily life. They can rebound with more ease from challenging events such as tragedy, trauma, threats, or other significant sources of stress.

How our programs work

Our self-guided, experiential digital programs use strengths-based practices for health promotion and draw upon the healing wisdom of global traditions such as meditation and other mind-body therapies. Program topics are universally applicable to all – such as compassion, forgiveness, gratitude, and acceptance.
Practical techniques enhance core educational content in engaging ways, supporting participants to change perspective, feel more connected to self and others, and experience greater fulfillment. Developing healthy relationships results in improved health outcomes and wellbeing, stronger communities, and positive social change.

Our Supporters

Cinim thanks and acknowledges the numerous private, foundation and corporate donors, program partners, community collaborators, and volunteers who have supported us over the last two decades. Together, we can help people grow and inspire them to thrive.

Help young people unlock their potential

BreathingRoom is supported by published research and three rigorous clinical trials. It’s designed to help young people cope with challenges, but not only by addressing the negative – we give them tools and strategies to thrive. They learn to build stronger connections with themselves and others – and find positivity, resilience, and purpose in their lives.
