Cancer, like other diseases, represents far more than a purely physical process. Its onset, biology and outcomes are inseparable from a person’s history, relationships, life stresses, and emotional states. This course, based on Gabor Maté's bestselling book When The Body Says No and grounded in the new sciences of psychoneuroimmunology and epigenetics, will explore the mind/body connection in health and illness.
YOU WILL LEARN:
- The principles that support participants in understanding why their bodies – and the bodies of those they care for personally and professionally – function the way they do.
- Psychological and spiritual practices to help people lead healthier and more fulfilled lives.
