Are you a heart-centred person who is looking for a better way to reduce stress,
improve your health, and to feel more aligned with life?
The Enlightened Health Academy is a holistic health site where you can learn how to improve your well-being.
We take you on a journey from stress and illness to self-realization, with everything in-between.
There are 3 main areas that we explore here - health, therapies, and wisdom.
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 - Heart-centred people who want to reduce stress and improve their health:
This group of people are typically struggling as a result of their openness, empathy, and their desire to help other people. They often include empaths, HSP's, healers, carers, counsellors, therapists, 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.
Because heart-centred people are typically very self-aware, they may feel naturally drawn to a holistic approach to health because it incorporates a view of life and health which fits more accurately with their own experience.
2 - Interested in holistic therapies and mindfulness:
There is more than one way to approach health... Some people feel naturally drawn to a more spiritual approach, exploring the mind-body connection, or want to learn about natural remedies. Others may want to develop a mindfulness-based approach to wellbeing, or to explore energy-based practices. If you fall into any of these categories, then you are in the right place.
Holistic health means taking a person-centred approach to wellbeing. It encompasses all aspects of health, not just the physical. Things like emotions, habits, relationships, diet, exercise, spirituality, and the ease with which we interact with the world around us.
For people who want to live a more holistic lifestyle, it can be difficult to access learning about how to use therapies and mindfulness at home. Here at the Academy, you will be able to learn about natural therapies, meditations, and healthy living as part of an ongoing process, and get support when you need it.
3 - Wisdom seekers, or on a path of spiritual awakening:
The third group of people that fit well with our ethos 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 is the ability to see life as it actually is - on an existential level of reality. To be able to go through life with ease, instead of being governed by unhelpful patterns of perception or behaviour.
Wisdom seekers are often spiritually-aligned, simply because this goes hand-in-and with understanding the nature of existence. This may take many different forms... some people belong to spiritual or religious groups, and follow certain practices, whilst others do not.
Spirituality means different things to everyone. For some it is a sense of connection with nature or life. Whilst others are more interested in exploring life after death, or 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.
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.

Moving from stress to inner peace in three 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-body connection relates to these three areas of life and health:
Phase 1 - Exploring holistic health and wellbeing
We focus primarily on the mind-body connection here, so this phase explores the relationship between 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 with natural therapies
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 - Spiritual growth and evolving 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 three 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.
