The institute is founded upon:
Monoism (direct connections) between the mind and the body, in other words, the mind and body are connected in contrast to the dualism between mind and body in Western main stream psychology
Centrality of consciousness rather than the “ego”
Focus on the cultivation of daily practises as a life style rather than just chasing quick fixes

By combining individual authenticity, authority, integrity and friendship the team create a safe, productive and supported environment for optimum healing, growth and transformation. The results speak for themselves.

We specialise in transforming people into healthy, awake, aware, and self-determining human beings.
We believe that every human being is on their individual path of self-development, self-growth and self-realisation. We believe that human life is more than simply going to school, working, accumulating material objects simply to die and leave all that you have worked so hard for behind, normally to a jumble sale .
We understand every life to be special, sacred and purposeful (even though one may have been conditioned not to realise this)
We understand that optimum human health can be cultivated through mindfulness, emotional intelligence, spiritual intelligence and authenticity.
We understand that the human body has an innate capacity to heal itself, provided certain conditions are met.
We specialise in working with the whole person through the cultivation of optimum health (physical, mental and emotional) and at a transpersonal level incorporating self-growth, self-actualisation and self-realisation.
We draw upon the wisdom of the world’s authentic spiritual traditions integrated with scientific developments in modern psychology and consciousness studies.
We recognise the significant difference between “Right mindfulness” (SAMMA SATI) and “wrong mindfulness” (MICCHA SATI )which is also known as “mindfulness” in modern western psychology.
