Or, when you fight reality, reality always wins.

You live in a prison of your own design. A prison so ingeniously conceived and subtly constructed that you can’t see the walls enclosing you. But you can feel their presence in your life. You feel it as suffering, and the only way to alleviate your suffering is to release yourself from your mental prison.




Personal stories on health, relationships, and a holistic approach to happiness. Wholistique is about Growth not Change. We DO NOT want to fix You because You are not broken. We want to shift your perception of reality and to empower you with the proper tools to navigate life.
