As health and healing professionals, we seek to summon all possible resources to aid in the recovery and health of our clients. We want our healing practice to be meaningful, fulfilling, and valuable to our self and our clients.
There are four main dimensions of health which together form the basis of an integral or whole health. These include: psychospiritual, inter-personal, biological, and community and cultural factors. A full understanding of personalized health and healing requires a concern for all the facets of integral well-being.
Primary among these concerns is the psychospiritual or mind dimension of health and healing. Why, because in modern times that is the most undeveloped aspect of the human experience and it is critical to mind/body health and well-being. Therefore, it is an essential skill and resource for the health professional.
Like any other skill, the practice of meditation and its related day-to-day practices can be learned, mastered, incorporated into one’s own life, and integrated into a broader and more effective practice of integral health and healing.
There are several key elements to be learned by the health practitioner. These include:
Understanding and experiencing the three stages of meditation
Integrating the psychospiritual aspects of health into your healing practice
Understanding the principles and practices of integral health
Integrating the four aspects of integral health into your practice
Understanding the qualities of human flourishing
Learning to tailor these approaches to individual client capacities and needs
