In mythology, the sacred Phoenix lived for a thousand years. While it lived, the firebird was revered as the embodiment of the cycle of life: birth, death, and rebirth.Its beauty was unmatched. However, the trials and suffering of the Phoenix were great. Holding the responsibilities and obligations of the world on its shoulders, the Phoenix had to be the role model for society. Brave, beautiful, cunning, protector, and a symbol of reincarnation; these were all just a few functions required of the mythic bird. At the end of its life, the Phoenix created a death bed for itself, then ignited the twigs and burned along with it. From the ashes of the old Phoenix, a new, pure, and rejuvenated Phoenix was born to take on the same responsibilities for the next one thousand years. Though the Phoenix’s suffering was great, it could create a new body with which to tackle life’s challenges.
In order to cope with our own daily suffering, we sometimes develop unhealthy behaviors, such as abusive treatment of others, non-compassion, eating disorders or self injury. Many of us under-eat, over-exercise, and under-appreciate ourselves just to fall apart and repeat the same negative cycle. Here at Phoenix Revolution, we challenge you to revolutionize the Phoenix in you. Phoenix Revolution wants you to hold yourself to a higher standard because we believe you’re worth it. So, ignite yourself and be reborn into the revolution. Break free from your negative behavioral patterns with healthier eating, proper exercise, stronger relationships, and a clearer mental fortitude.
Arise from your ashes, and be the person you have always wanted to be! We are looking to heal your mind, your body, your life in every way possible. However, Phoenix Revolution will challenge you.
