Philosophy

He with body waged a fight,
But body won; it walks upright.
Then he struggled with the heart;
Innocence and peace depart.
Then he struggled with the mind;
His proud heart he left behind.
Now his wars on God begin;
At stroke of midnight God shall win.

W.B. Yeats from Supernatural Songs 1934

Yeats in his poem reflected on the health challenges we face throughout the life course. Lab4Living recognises the role of design and creative practices in addressing these physical, emotional, mental and spiritual dimensions. However rather than seeing these as occurring chronologically we accept that they can happen at any point during our lives.
