What if disease and illness are related to the health of your psyche? What if symptoms are signs telling you how to resolve destructive patterns, restore balance, and transform your health?

Transformative medicine, an emerging field led by physician Ruediger Dahlke, shows you how you can use your symptoms as a road map to well-being.

Using your own medical history (an intake form is required prior to the workshop), Dahlke guides you to discover what your symptoms are trying to tell you. Through lecture, group discussion, and journaling you explore four main causes of illness, Dahlke’s 12 archetypes, the shadow, and other ways to unlock the mysteries of health. You explore the full spectrum of health, from the common cold to cancer, including chronic disease, digestive ailments, skin conditions, infection, infertility, and psychological conditions like addiction, depression, and more.

Anyone looking to recover or maintain lifelong health and vitality is welcome. You return home with the ability to recognize and pinpoint common imbalances manifesting as physical symptoms and with the tools to address them at a level that can transform your life.
