Hennie Geldenhuys introduces his new course in Integrative Medicine which recognises that we are physical beings, but also spiritual and interconnected beings, in this fascinating Vlog conversation with Jessica Bockler. Hennie shares his passion for holistic and integral approaches to health and wellbeing which consider the whole person and larger context in the diagnosis and treatment of illness. He describes his view of integrative medicine as cross-disciplinary, including psychology and physical medicine as well as transpersonal coaching and spiritual approaches. “Integrative healthcare is the coming together of various disciplines, which also makes it an exciting area in which to work,” he adds.
This course covers theories and models, but more importantly focuses on applications for healthcare providers, coaches, therapists, counsellors, spiritual guides, or any of the range of practitioners who work with or are interested in the mind-body-spirit paradigm, and what this means in practice.
Our online distance-learning MSc in ‘Consciousness, Spirituality & Transpersonal Psychology’ provides an intellectually-stimulating programme of study which focuses on diverse topics around the nature of consciousness, the dynamics between psyche and soma, the psychology of self and higher states of being, and the psychological basis of spiritual and mystical practices. Our MSc programme is distinctive in valuing experiential approaches to learning and in encouraging students to incorporate insights from the programme into their own life journeys. In addition to a rigorous academic curriculum, modules exploring integral life practice, transpersonal approaches to research, and a research dissertation focus on the practical application of learning. The MSc programme consists of 180 course credits and most students complete the programme over 3 years, studying part-time. The programme is run entirely online, and it is validated by Liverpool John Moores University in the UK.
