In a world inundated with fad diets, fitness trends, and conflicting health advice, John Pierre (JP) stands out as a breath of fresh air in the realm of holistic living. With a career spanning decades, JP has dedicated his life to promoting well-being, not only for individuals but also for the planet and its sentient inhabitants.

From his early days working in retirement homes and shelters to his current role as a sought-after health and fitness coach for celebrities, JP’s journey reflects a commitment to compassion, sustainability, and a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of life.

Reflecting on JP’s work prompts a societal shift to championing the elderly, celebrating the wealth of experience they bring to communities. JP’s legacy inspires us to adopt a holistic approach to health, encompassing plant-based nutrition, brain-building activities, physical fitness, and fostering intergenerational connections.

In a world filled with fleeting health trends, John Pierre’s holistic approach stands out for enduring well-being. His transformative journey, from revolutionizing senior care to advocating for interconnected generations, reflects a deep understanding of the interconnectedness of life.

One would be hard pressed to find anyone who is not inspired by JP’s holistic approach to health, fostering vitality, purpose, and compassion for the planet.

As we were walking and learning together yesterday during our Wisdom Walk, I managed to take a few notes and I would like to share a few of the ideas which impacted me in some way. I am paraphrasing what I heard during the interview - filtered by my own mitote of ideas and thoughts.

I took plenty of notes and learned so much from John Pierre and Dr Sabatino about their own practices and how to overcome obstacles from living this lifestyle.

As always, it just pure pleasure to listen to John Pierre share both his personal story and his amazing knowledge - not to mention all the amazing outreach and environmental work he does! Here is just a bit of what I was able to take notes on whilst moving!

  • PLANET BASED LIVING - The next step for us all who truly respect life

  • People need to ACT on what they KNOW - turning knowledge into wisdom

  • "The word WE has to be in all expressions of life, not me, me, me"

  • Living a Hygienic Lifestyle means to incorporate ALL the facets of your life

  • Veganism is a mind-set; it is about respect for all life, not just food

  • Respecting all life includes the life of our planet - caring for our environment

  • He began his work in retirement homes with programs that went beyond nutrition, including physical movement, meditation and breathwork

  • Ahisma is a Sanskrit word which means having compassion and reverence for all living things - people, animals, plants, bugs ... the whole planet which is our home

  • "You are not truly practicing YOGA if you harm animals"

  • Yoga, without respecting all life forms, is simply stretching

  • Take care of the planet as if you were a guest in a friend's house - clean up after yourself and be respectful of your surroundings

  • We must broaden our focus on not just our own food, but our entire planet - the health and wellness of all living beings depends on our respect for life - all life

  • Start with your word; be aware of what you say and what allow yourself to hear - love, respect and compassion begin with our word

  • Do the best that you can each day

Thank you to John Pierre and Dr Sabatino for a wonderful interview together, for getting us moving whilst learning and for the joy and knowledge you both continue to share with us all - you have our gratitude.
