My vision and purpose
Hello and Welcome,
My name’s Nick Haines, and I’m a British entrepreneur and an international practitioner, author and teacher in Chinese medicine and energetics. For the last 30 years I have studied, explored and worked with these theories to help people that are stuck, struggling or want to do something extraordinary. For people that are different and want to make a difference.
I’ve done this through 1-2-1 consultations, writing and teaching nationally and internationally as well as co-founding the Northern College of Acupuncture, the Nottingham Natural Health Centre and recently the Five Institute, a centre of entrepreneurial excellence.
The Five Institute was founded to solve a problem I was personally struggling with
There seemed to be an infinite number of people that wanted to understand about Five Energy Dynamics, one of the core components within ancient Chinese philosophy, and exactly how that was affecting their life, their business or their wellbeing.
My problem was however hard I worked in my private practice I never managed to see all the people that ask to see me, I always had a waiting list, at one point reaching a ridiculous 2 years.
Ironically I was stuck too, and working way to hard for my own good.
Then the problem was taken out of my hands…
After a near fatal accident I was ill, unable to work and given the chance to rethink my life.
I recognised that the aspect of my work that I loved the most, was working with entrepreneurial businesses. As an entrepreneur myself I intimately knew and understood the challenges and the difference we can make to the planet.
It wasn’t that I didn’t love the health side of what I did; I just knew something had to give, and at the same time I had to… up my game and my contribution.
I knew from my previous experience the incredible changes Five Energy Dynamics can make to an entrepreneurial businesses, and their ability to contribute. I wanted to make those insights available on a world wide level to as many struggling or passionate entrepreneurs as possible.
The way I see it
We’re currently living with two options: One option is to move forward in a new and profound way, and the other to continue to travel along the same path with our unsustainable ways and behavior.
I believe that many enlightened entrepreneurs are at the forefront of this new way of working and being, putting social responsibility at the heart of what they do. Changing the world for the better.
If through the Five Institute and Five Energy Dynamics I can offer any help or contribute to the success of these conscious, socially aware and responsible entrepreneurs, my time will have been well spent in the latter half of my life.
