Course overview

Implicit in the word ‘disease’ is pain, incapacity and wasted human potential. Often, someone’s illness is a burden on family, friends and community. Any therapy that can give effective relief from this is worth investigating, especially one which is founded on the self-healing capacity of the individual. Psychospiritual disharmonies that lead to ill-health are covered in detail, together with what holistic healing has to offer to health care practice.
