Holistic Wellness

Holistic wellness focuses on the maintenance of the people’s optimal body health and spiritual balance through utilizing combinations of traditionally accepted concepts and spiritual health philosophies. Apart from relying on the use of the traditional Western and Chinese medicine, modern people now pay more attention to complementary ways in fostering body, spiritual and environmental health especially in helping them to recover from losses, failures, tragedies and psychological disorders.  These complementary ways include the Tao of Incense, traditional Fengshui and Bazi applications, Zen and Buddhist counselling, aromatherapy etc.

The aims of this course are to, through learning about the Zen approach in helping, demonstrate how professional helpers, for examples, doctors, nurses, psychologists, social workers, counsellors, teachers and other related professionals can develop a genuine compassion for and harmonious understanding of individuals they intend to help. A Zen perspective introduces us to an unconventional yet pragmatic new approach of helping, which is only possible by concentrating and living in the here and now- the essence of meditation.
