There is no prerequisite for this course.
Learn the principles and techniques of maintaining happy, healthy mind which will contribute to maintain a healthy body.
This short course will explore as to how our thoughts could influence the physiology and thereby keep our body in a state of health or sickness. Students will learn the techniques that will improve their health and state of happiness.
The course starts by defining the holistic health perspective incorporating Western, Eastern and Indigenous sciences in the planetary knowledge-bank and health outcomes of the present day state of human health. The continuing health crisis, equalled by increasing medical interventions in both physical and mental health, begs the question; What is driving all these health outcomes and can anything be done? Wellbeing is studied from the impact of mind on physiology. Why do genuinely happy people seem to have more energy and better physical and mental health outcomes and are less likely to suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or become addicted to legal or illegal drugs?. To answer such questions the Laws of Happiness and Conflict and tracking states of mind and body with the MindMe Health Journal are studied as therapeutic assessment tools, revealing how the mind and its goals motivate the behaviours behind the health statistics. Mindfullness Meditations will also be part of the therapeutic strategies of the course.
