What does "Twin Lion" mean?
We drew inspiration for our name from a parable that we had heard over the years in various forms. In short it goes something like this:
An adult is trying to teach their child about the good and evil that lays within all of us...
"A battle rages inside us all," says the parent.
"It is a terrible fight between 2 forces.
"One is evil - it is anger, pride, superiority, self-doubt, envy, sorrow, toxic, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, and ego. It is all that will corrupt and bring death to this world.
The other is good - it is joy, peace, love, hope, truth, compassion, patience, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, generosity, and faith. "
The child, being naturally curious, asks "Which force wins?"
The parent looks into their eyes and responds, "The one you feed."
We use Lions to represent those forces. Twin Lion was founded by 2 brothers - one a leo, the other a gemini. It created the direction for what to call the organization they wanted to serve their community through.
Does Twin Lion Wellness have a mission statement?
Yeah we do! We're nerdy like that!
Twin Lion's mission statement: To put good vibes into the universe.
Relating back to question 1 - we've realized that CHOOSING to feed the good lion inside of you is a tough battle. But even when people work up the strength to do so, life seems to throw obstacles in their way of doing so.
Cost, availability, and the quality of goods and services, quite often put the very things that are good for all of us out of reach.
Twin Lion Wellness is built around the idea of making those things available to as many people as possible. From disabled combat veterans, to single parents, to special needs children, and everything in between!
