Kelly Noonan Gores in conversation with Ruediger Dahlke
Your life is trying to tell you something. It speaks in symptoms, chance events, symbols, and patterns. Learning life’s language can help you transform illness, resolve psychological issues, and take personal development to a new level.
When imbalances develop in your consciousness, they manifest in the body as symptoms. Guided by renowned European physician Ruediger Dahlke and his lead apprentice Carol Greenhouse, you learn to interpret your symptoms in order to restore your natural balance and improve your overall health. You learn to generate your own good health and change your life by deciphering your symptoms and better understanding your life’s meaning.
Plus, Dahlke works closely with special workshop guests—Kelly Noonan Gores, producer of the documentary Heal, and Stephen Kiesling, editor of Spirituality & Health magazine—on their real-life health issues, including back pain, weight gain, and aging issues to demonstrate how to heal them--and then works with participants on their health concerns, integrating new insights through meditation, image therapy, journaling, and breathwork.
You leave with a new perspective toward illness and a plan for wellness to implement when you return home. Helping professionals will learn techniques and information they can use with their clients.
Faculty recommends you read the following book in preparation for the course:
- The Healing Power of Illness: Understanding What Your Symptoms Are Telling You by Thorwald Dethlefsen and Ruediger Dahlke
Greenhouse also offers a limited number of individual sessions at an additional cost that can be booked with the faculty upon arrival.
