Is the Academy right for you?
People who find our services helpful are typically heart-centred people who want to learn more about life, spirituality, and health.
They often fall into one of these groups...
1 - Interested in holistic health and wellness:
There is more than one way to approach health... Some people feel naturally drawn to a more spiritual approach, or to natural remedies. Some people are happy to use mainstream healthcare, and also simultaneously learn about personal growth. Others may want to learn about mindfulness, or to explore energy-based practices. Any of these situations falls into the realm of holistic healthcare.
Many people that I help are experiencing health issues, like stress, burnout, or anxiety. Or they are feeling unable to move past loss, bereavement, or an overwhelming life event.
Some people have chronic fatigue, pain, fibromyalgia, or a long-term health condition, and they are struggling to find the support that they need. They are searching for someone who recognises the ripple effect of being unwell - like the impact it has upon family, friends, work, and finances. They are seeking practical support, and tools to help them feel better.
2 - Healers, empaths and heart-centred people:
This group of people are typically struggling as a result of their openness, empathy, and their desire to help other people.
They include empaths, HSP's, healers, carers, counsellors, therapists, health professionals, spiritual workers, and people who are in similar roles, where they spend a lot of time helping others with their problems.
As a result, they tend to suffer with burnout, compassion fatigue, chronic illness, overwhelm, stress, anxiety, and a host of immune-related disorders.
Or they struggle with relationship difficulties - attracting people who take advantage of their kind nature, and who happily take from them endlessly, without giving much in return. They may also have people-pleasing tendencies, and find it difficult to say no, which results in more burnout and exhaustion.
Perhaps they may feel overwhelmed because they are picking up on the energies all around them, and they don't know how to handle it. So, they begin to retreat from the world, feeling increasingly frustrated at drifting away from being able to fulfil their purpose in life. In this case, a spiritual model of health is needed, but one which helps move them past fear and overwhelm, and supports them in stepping into their full potential.
3 - Wisdom seekers:
The third group of people that I help are wisdom seekers. They are already deeply insightful, and self-aware, and they are on a journey of self-discovery. It's their calling, their passion, and something which feels like an integral part of who they are.
Wisdom seekers are often spiritually-aligned, although this may take many different forms...
Some belong to spiritual or religious groups, and follow certain practices, whilst others do not. Some people may associate spirituality with nature or a sense of deeper connection with life. Whilst others are more interested in life after death, or exploring the nature of consciousness.
To a large extent, it does not matter how each person relates to spirituality or wisdom - ultimately that is an individual matter. But what this group has in common is a deep desire to understand life, and to be the best version of themselves - not in an ego-centric way, but because they want to share their highest potential with others. They want to make a difference in the world.
Wisdom seekers also respect the opinions and experiences of other people. They accept that not everyone has the same path in life, and they do not try to place their opinions and spiritual views upon other people. They are happy to explore different perspectives on life, and to be part of a community of friends who are sharing a similar journey.
If any of these situations feel familiar to you, then you are in the right place...
Wisdom and well-being go hand-in-hand...
The deeper your level of insight into life,
and the more aligned you become with your true nature,
the easier it becomes to thrive in any situation.
Holistic Health and Well-Being
Every aspect of your life influences your well-being...
This might sound like an obvious statement, but have you ever really stopped to think about the real impact that all of your daily experiences have on your health?
Think for a moment about the things that you do each day. Consider the way that you think, how you perceive the world around you, your habits and choices, the way you react to situations and people in your life, even the sub-conscious beliefs that you may not even realise exist.
Holistic health is all about exactly what the term implies- it is based on wholeness.
Think about it for a moment... No aspect of who you are as a person is ever really separate from any other part of you. Your mind and body do not work independently from each other. Your health can never really be separated from the influence of the environment in which you live. Nor from the experiences which you encounter in life.
Here are just a few things that influence how you feel everyday:
The tension between what is happening in your life, and your ability to navigate through it with ease is a key component of health. When the demands placed on you consistently outweigh your ability to cope, then your well-being can deteriorate.
Your thoughts, beliefs, identity, mental patterns, perception of life. Do you know where your thoughts come from? What they are? Pause for a moment, and ask yourself how can you possibly control something if you do not know what it is?
Do you really have complete control over your emotions? Can you thrive in any circumstances? Why do you still feel strong or overwhelming emotions even when you are telling your mind to act differently?
We live most of our life on autopilot. Maybe you have tried to change something in your life, only to be unsuccessful. Perhaps you want to be more assertive? Improve your relationships? Or find a new job? Something is stopping you , and you aren't sure what it is. Maybe it's time to explore a little deeper...
A similar pattern often plays out in the choices that we make. We know that cream bun is not good for us, but we eat it anyway. We know we should do more exercise, but can't seem to find the energy. Our mental conditioning often surpasses our desires...
Ideally, we would all be able to thrive and flow through live with grace and ease. But when we look around we realise that this rarely happens - life is often busy and overwhelming. When we don't give ourselves time to repair stress or damage, then it places a strain on our health.
An often omitted component of health, spirituality is closely related with well-being. Not only because of the health benefits associated with spiritual practice, experience, or belief, but also because existential wisdom can help in overcoming real adversity in life. Understanding life helps you to dissolve stress completely.
The Enlightened Health Academy can help you to reduce stress-related illness, develop self-awareness, heal your mind and body, and embark on your own spiritual journey through well-being...

Moving from stress to inner peace in four phases...
Starting your journey of wisdom and well-being
Mind-body health explores the stress-disease connection. It considers how our thoughts, feelings, and emotions affect our physiological health and functioning. It also looks at ways that we can improve this relationship in order to experience optimum health and well-being in all areas of our life.
At the Enlightened Health Academy we explore how the mind relates to these four areas of life and health:
Phase 1 - Stress and illness
When we live in a long-term state of heightened stress, it directly impacts the healthy functioning of our mind, body, and emotions. Knowing how to deliberately reduce, or reverse the effects of stress can have a highly beneficial impact on our health.
It is possible to significantly impact many chronic health conditions simply by changing how we relate to stress, and implementing simple changes in our lives.
Phase 2 - Restoring health and wellness
Your body has it's own innate wisdom for healing and restoring health, even in the presence of injury or illness.
When we support this natural function, rather than constantly challenging it, we will naturally experience better health. Learning how to integrate healthy habits into our lives, using simple techniques like mindfulness, or participating in regular therapy sessions, can make a huge difference to your quality of life.
Phase 3 - Personal growth and life skills
Developing practical skills for dealing effectively with difficult situations is a key aspect of long-term stress reduction.
This includes learning how to master your mind and emotions in order to reduce the impact of stress upon your health. It also includes dealing with common stressors such as relationships, finances, or finding more meaning and purpose in your life.
Phase 4 - Spiritual wisdom
For many people, existential concerns come up when they experience some sort of trauma, bereavement, loss, or a serious health issue. Others may have a natural tendency to want to more about the nature of life.
Mind, consciousness, and personal identity are fundamental to who we are. Understanding how this relates to spirituality and religion is an important aspect of resolving these concerns.
By addressing these four areas, you can make real progress in reducing stress, and begin to experience better health and well-being... This is the process of developing wisdom - being able to understand yourself, other people, and life, on a much deeper level.
