IFNA™ Guiding Principles
7 Key Ingredients
Educational Excellence: we aim to provide the most clinically relevant, evidence based, practice-informed, peer-reviewed, integrative and functional nutrition program available
Inquiry: we encourage a desire for learning new concepts and deepening one’s knowledge in a spirit of intellectual curiosity and open-mindedness
Collaboration: we eagerly share our work in service to our students, our profession and the practice of integrative and functional nutrition for the highest good
Self-Care: we commit to practicing personal healthcare habits that help us to be our best in mind, body, and spirit
Conscious Communication: we strive for thoughtful dialogue that is rooted in reflective listening and timely responsiveness
Active Engagement: we endeavor to be fully present in our interactions with others and to foster meaningful and sustainable relationships
Innovation: we continually seek creative ideas, initiatives and opportunities that are aligned with our values and inspire us to achieve our mission
Take one precious human life. Add a
slice of mindfulness, a heaping cup of
contemplative practice – any flavor you choose.
Dissolve the personal self in a quart of self-
inquiry. Blend laughter, love, well-being, prayer,
awareness, ease, and truth. Mix ingredients and bake
until done. Recipe serves everyone. Leftovers can
be used in open-faced, non-dual sandwiches.
Feel free to experiment with unusual ingredients.
Cooking time will vary.
