Meditation and Holistic Human Development:

Disengaging stress and accepting a balanced state of rest is the everlasting struggle of a contemporary lifestyle. Fear, childhood trauma, unresolved grief, anger, anxiety and the pressure of modern life, all create an imbalance in neurochemicals and hormones. While most therapeutic programs singularly address physical, emotional, mental or spiritual healing, such a narrow focus fails to achieve a holistic harmony.

Meditation and Holistic Human Development not only identifies the underlying root cause of stress but empowers individuals to take control of their entire well being. The easy-to-practice, self- empowering and scientifically proven methods facilitate a cohesive mind-body connection and foster optimal well-being.

This course provides the tools to bring about whole-person healing and build the foundations of a meaningful life. The powerful and essential modality will enable personal growth, as well as provide the skills to share your new-found knowledge with others.
