Introduction to Transformative Medicine

START THE PROCESS WITH AN IN-DEPTH INTRO

Everything that happens in our bodies—from subtle symptoms to dramatic illnesses—relates to what’s unfolding in our psyches and gives us the chance to learn and grow.

Do you have symptoms that don’t respond to treatment? Do you want to dismantle old patterns? Are you looking for a way to address illness without the drugs and surgery of Western medicine? Are you a health practitioner seeking new ways to treat patients? Do you want to expand your understanding of your own life and cultivate new solutions to the issues in the world around you?

Then the Certificate in Transformative Medicine was designed for you, and this introductory module lays the foundation for understanding this new model of healing and personal growth by outlining some of its key ideas.

Open your eyes and heart to a wider lens and begin the journey to interpreting symptoms in a way that dramatically shapes well-being: yours or that of your clients.

Understanding the Shadow

UNDERSTANDING THE SHADOW

The Polarity Wheel is one of the core concepts of Transformative Medicine. It’s based on the idea that the world, our lives and our characters are constructed from opposing forces: control and flow, strength and weakness, the energy of the warrior and of the peacemaker. These binary powers can get off balance in our culture as well as our individual operating systems, in the process of birth, childhood or daily living, and when they do, create the chaos we accept as normal in our daily lives. This course unpacks the polarities, giving you a hint of how your own life may be off balance in the process.

Telecast 1: Introduction

The Language of the Body

LEARN TO SPEAK THE LANGUAGE OF THE BODY

When the psyche is unable to process conflict, conflict descends into the body and is reflected as a symptom, an illness, an accident or a destructive event. A range of systems can be affected, from the cardiovascular system to the respiratory system to the digestive system. In this module, you’ll learn how psychological issues create chaos in the body and how to begin to address the result.
