Heaven & Earth’s Mission is to teach the principle of wellness and preventative care, cultivate self discovery
and assist in the development of health care practitioners who:
• honor the body’s ability to heal and give birth
• recognize the significance of the mind, body, spirit connection
• develop awareness of the connection between environment, health and personal responsibility
• respect the subtle energies that connect us to ourselves, one another and the divine
• are committed to guiding, empowering and serving their clients
• value the art of healing
• respect individual differences
• incorporate complementary and integrative medicine within their practice
• foster recognition and cooperation among all medical and traditional healing practitioners
Heaven & Earth honors the differences of spiritual/religious views among people. Spirituality is approached, not as a religious experience per say, but as a tool to cultivate inquisitiveness and self-discovery. We believe that discussion on spirituality brings meaningful exchange among persons of different views and traditions, provoking a greater understanding of the human experience and the healing process. Heaven & Earth is committed to openness and exploration of the human experience within all traditions of the world.
