When illness strikes it seems that it takes away or alters everything important to you: your identity, your career, your relationships, and even your sense of who you are. Having your hopes and dreams derailed in this way is an excruciating experience. But illness is also about growth and awakening. In fact, it is a perfect path for leading us to what is important in life.
In this course, we focus on illness as a path to deep personal growth. Using the integral map, we look at how growth occurs and how the experience of illness can offer a direct route to a better, more mature, and more sane experience of being human.
The course is suitable for patients, caregivers, practitioners and others who deal with healthcare matters.
This course is part 4 of a six part series. (See below for information on the other courses in the series.) However, each course can stand alone.
Full price of $197.00 or use a coupon $40KOI, $70KOI, or $130KOI. Five seats available at each discounted price. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need to pay less.
