Omega Institute: Connecting the Cell and the Self: A Professional Training in Mind-Body Integrative Medicine


Naturopathic doctor Paul Epstein explores biology and biography and teaches you to integrate mind-body therapies into clinical practice.

Disease tells a story, not just of biology but also biography. It is important for clinicians to listen to, and integrate, both stories in our work with patients in their quest for healing.

Stress is a contributing factor in illness. The latest research is confirming and expanding on this idea in ways that can revolutionize the way we go about treating our patients. Biography can and does influence biology. There is a growing realization of importance of effectively and skillfully integrating this knowledge into the practice of medicine.

In this practical training with naturopathic physician Paul Epstein, you learn a theoretical framework for practice in the healing arts that emphasizes the relationship between the cell (biology) and the self (biography) in clinical care. You learn how to:

    • Define and explain the relationship between stress and illness
    • Facilitate exploration of the connection between childhood trauma and chronic adult disease
    • Use mind-body therapies, including guided imagery, biographical exploration, family systems theory, and more, to connect the cell and the self

You also gain tools and information to create professional resilience and prevent burnout.

Physicians, naturopathic doctors, nurses, therapists, social workers, nutritionists, and other healing professionals are welcome.
