DIVERSITY - AUTHENTICITY - THE ALCHEMY OF PAIN INTO BEAUTY - LOVING THE CHANGE FROM CHILDHOOD TO ADULT - SELF CARE AS REBELLION - ACKNOWLEDGING THE UNDERCURRENT OF LIFE AS LOVE - STANDING IN THE SPACE WHERE SCIENCE + WISDOM OVERLAP - THE WHOLEHEARTED BELIEF IN THE THERAPEUTIC POWER OF SELF EXPRESSION
INCLUSIVITY - J2SYL MEMBERS can arise from any different subculture to rebel against and cope with the aspects of their life and society that inhibit safety and happiness. NERD. JOCK. ARTSY. PUNK. HIP-HOP. HIPPIE. However you self-identify at this moment in your life - stay who you are, express yourself freely, and relate to the community we're cultivating.
HONOR - J2 MEMBERS can feel proud to be a part of this program. You don’t feel shame going to the cardiologist, the chiropractor, or a gym coach. Taking care of your mental health is a responsible step to wellbeing. Our participants are messengers that it’s not taboo to have problems, to experience violence or abuse, or harbor hang-ups and want to heal. The effects of trauma on your brain are objective + scientific. We know that mental illness can be cured like cancer or a cold. At J2SYL, you are not a diagnosis.
UNCONDITIONAL LOVE - Yes, that's what we offer to the masses. Truly. Without an agenda. That's why we will remain FOREVER FREE. We want to improve participants' relationships with friends, parents, siblings, lovers, enemies, and co-workers. No more interpreting emotions as chaos. No more squashing your authentic voice. No more losing the bigger vision of a brighter future. J2SYL wants people from every class of society to rise to their true potential by building self-esteem.
PERSONALITY - We like personality over here. J2SYL is ... EDGY, INTELLIGENT, PROFESSIONAL, and IRREVERENT; HARD-WORKING, OUTRAGEOUS - EVEN IN TERROR. We are a shoulder to cry on and an elbow to give you a nudge. We are like that great Aunt, who listens better than your Mom, who keeps all your secrets, who is strict, forgiving, and fun. Why does the caged bird sing? BECAUSE ONCE S/HE GETS OUT OF THAT CAGE, S/HE IS GOING TO BE F*CKING AWESOME. And most of all, J2SYL is empathic, because there is nothing wrong with you. This is life + you have the power to reprogram the way your brain responds. Happiness is a FULL TIME JOB. Yup, yup!
* J2SYL will never partner with any organization with a history of human rights, animal, or environmental violations.
MENTAL HEALTH IS A HUMAN RIGHT! - our rallying cry
