Our trainings, conducted in association with Harvard Medical School, provide health care professionals with the tools to add mind body techniques into their existing practices. In 2011, over 90% of attendees of the Revolutionary Practice of Mind Body Medicine training ranked the program as "Above Average" or "Superior" to other graduate courses. In 2012, participants in our June CME offering felt twice as confident in their ability to run a mind body program with patients after taking our course.
