People long to be happy and free of suffering, to experience their own innate wholeness and to live from the clear depths of their “true self.” But what does healing look like? What is wholeness? As a professional in mental health care, counseling or pastoral care, do you have the answers?

In this 8-week, 16 session, interactive and immersive experience, you learn an integrative approach to healing and wholeness by considering paradigms that are inclusive of the human being’s full spectrum of lived experience—body, mind, spirit, and heart.

Here you will get comprehensive exposure to paradigms of human flourishing that integrate the riches of ancient wisdom with the findings of recent evidence-based discoveries. Take this seminar as part of the Certificate in Mental Health and Spirituality, or by itself to earn continuing education units (CEUs) as you learn the paradigms of healing and wholeness.
