Why Inner Healing Mastery?
The program grew out of my own experience of anxiety and chronic physical symptoms. It led me on a journey to discover and understand the mind-body connection and inner healing. For the past thirty years, I’ve learned what works, from academic research, as well as my own experience of extensive study and practice of mindfulness meditation, tai chi, yoga, spiritual psychology, chassidut, prayer, and other healing tools.
Since 1997, I have been working with tens of thousands of patients with acute and chronic pain and chronic illness. I saw people suffering with pain, feeling scared and overwhelmed, feeling out of control and helpless. These were good people with difficult situations, who naturally unravel and lose their sense of confidence and competence in dealing with life. It was clear to me that the same practices I had learned could have a positive impact on these issues.
But there was a gap in my professional practice. My medical training emphasized the knowledge and expertise of the doctor who prescribed drugs, invasive procedures, and surgery. I knew firsthand about self-healing through the mind-body connection. But I was disappointed to see that very little effort was made to empower patients with these natural and safe approaches to strengthen their own God-given healing mechanisms. I saw people suffering, who weren’t being given the empowering tools to reduce their suffering. That was very distressing for me.
Over the years, I learned to bring my own experience to the clinics and hospitals where I worked. I taught 1000s of patients and other people how to empower the healing power that is present in their own mindbody connection. It was gratifying to see the positive effects.
It’s very costly to do that one-on-one, and its often not convenient to do it in person, both for clinician and patients. That has led to the development of the Inner Healing Mastery Course.
The course is designed to take you from a place where you feel like you’re sinking or drowning because of your chronic pain or illness, to a place where you’re sailing through the challenges and enhancing your ability to function and take care of yourself.
To take you from scared, suffering, and overwhelmed, to calm, confident, with a sense of possibility
I want to help you learn to take back your life from chronic pain and illness. That means empowering you with tools and techniques that will help you find your unique healing path.
What is the Course Format?
Inner Healing Mastery is an eight week intensive training program.
The core of the course is a weekly live group video session. The live sessions are interactive with detailed instruction, feedback and questions, group discussions, and various exercises and learning opportunities. The live sessions are recorded and downloadable for participants. In addition to the live sessions, the course includes:
- Home practice recordings to support you to make the practices your own
- Additional group support via private facebook group with fellow students, that is moderated by Dr Shiller
- Email hotline to submit questions and feedback
- Home practice journaling and awareness practices that will help you internalize the learning, and enhance your awareness of how to help yourself.
This is not a quick fix. This is a learning program that works best if you put in the time and effort. It teaches you a new way to be, in relation to life and whatever is ailing you. It’s powerful work, but only if you do the work. So you should only participate if you’re willing to put in the time. Its best if participants can invest 30-60 minutes, 4-7 days a week, during the time of the course.
When Is the Course Happening?
The next segment of Inner Healing Mastery begins in early February 2019. Space is limited, so take action and sign up soon if you are interested.
