Theme for Semester 2:
Applying Mind/Body/Spirit Principles to your Personal Life
Now that the foundation has been laid for becoming a holistic human, Semester Two courses build upon that foundation and give you a powerful array of healing tools and techniques that, if applied, can exponentially enhance your life. Your transformation is at hand!
Note that though each course builds upon the other (just as each semester builds on the ones prior), each course is also a stand-alone course and can be taken independently from the other four.
Intuition: Your Magnificent Ally
In this course, you take an in-depth look at intuition and finding your “place of grace.” Discover the similarities and differences between intuition and imagination and practice how to access both. Reclaim ancient wisdom as you rediscover the power of meditation, dreams, symbols and other gateways to the inner realms. This course leads you to an even greater understanding and acceptance of your unique place in the universe.
Be Happy in Your Own Skin:
Successfully Managing Emotional States
Do you sometimes feel at the mercy of the strong emotional currents that seem to sweep you along? Do you try to deny your emotions because they create too much confusion? Understanding that the Divine speaks to you through your emotions, it is critical that you learn how to recognize, understand, and manage different emotional states. That is the essence of this course.
Common medical and holistic methods for addressing emotional states are addressed, and attention is given to the relaxation response. Practical, real-life techniques with immediate applicability are presented like reframing, deep breathing, expressing gratitude, appreciation, and forgiveness. Before the end of the course, you formulate a personal plan for identifying personal stressors and managing emotional states. Once aligned with your inner center, you can become even more effective in your outer world and achieve increased personal satisfaction with your life.
The Art and Science of Nutritional Health and Healing

Time is devoted to both ancient and leading-edge knowledge of herbs as East finally meets West around the table. The course concludes with a pot-luck feast where you apply the principles of what you have learned and enjoy how your classmates express themselves through food they prepare. This course tastes good and is good for you!
