The College of Mind-Body Medicine is committed to educating and supporting the women and men who will help to shape the coming worldwide transformation in health and mental health care. The College's teachings are grounded in the understanding that self-awareness, self-care and mutual help are crucial to the prevention and treatment of all chronic illness and to the fulfillment of our human potential, and that we cannot help others on their healing journeys unless we are embarked on and actively engaged in our own. Combining the wisdom of in-depth experiential learning with the most sophisticated tools of scientific investigation, we are creating a graduate curriculum that is intellectually challenging, powerfully practical, and personally and socially transformative. The College will be a central element of a worldwide healing community and will itself be a community of healers.
