Carolina Maine created Nibbana Wellness because she believes that mental illness does not have to prematurely end your life or derail your ability to be successful in something that is meaningful to you.
You may not achieve your original goals, but you can always create new ones.
You can also create your own moments of bliss that help you build resilience in your overall life.
Carolina believes that wellness is holistic. Meditation, a healthy diet, and exercise all combine to make a life that is full of moments of ever-growing bliss
The articles on Nibbana Wellness will help you achieve your own sense of bliss.
What is Nibbana?
Nibbana is the highest bliss, a supramundane state of eternal happiness. The happiness of Nibbana cannot be experienced by indulging the senses but by calming them.
~Venerable K. Sri Dhammananda Maha Thera
The beauty of Nibbana is in the taming of senses so that all emotions of joy and gratitude may be fully expressed. Carolina strives for this in her everyday activities and hopes you will too!
If you believe you have a mental illness, please consult a mental health professional. Living a life of wellness is a complement to appropriate mental health treatment.
