Together we can become the change we want to see in the world.

An Integral Look at Illness

Illness is often looked at as something apart from normal life when in fact it IS normal life.  Using the integral map, we can see how illness is a part of every aspect of life: our physical reality, our personal interior experience, interactions with the medical system, and relationships with family, friends, and society.

We offer several courses in illness management, the shadow of illness, illness as a path to personal growth, and illness as a spiritual practice for awakening.
