Certificate in Holistic Health
One Year, Part-Time
The Certificate in Holistic Healthcare at Taruna is a course for health professionals looking to extend their practice into a holistic paradigm. This professional development course deepens participants’ access to their own intuition allowing them to work with patients as a whole person. On-site at Taruna for three seminars during the year (each spanning eight days), the programme also includes directed independent study which takes the learning deeper into the participants’ practices.
This transformative course places a special emphasis on objective self-reflection to enable a greater capacity for therapeutic relationship. Participants will develop archetypal pictures of the human being while working with a range of external treatments that can be incorporated into clinical situations. A contemporary understanding of the human being that integrates a spiritual dimension is supported through a rich arts and movement programme.
Ultimately, graduates will finish the year with a greater capacity to facilitate wellness, self-determination and resilience for themselves and their patients/clients in the face of the challenges of the 21st century.
NB: This programme is a pre-requisite for the Diploma in Holistic Healthcare (Anthroposophic Nursing Aotearoa).
