Mentor/counselor – designated by staff of the UHSS
Time frame for completion at discretion of the mentor/counselor (3-4 weeks is recommended)

Objective:

To gain an understanding of time-tested principles to improve health and delay aging.

While there are various “prescriptions” for health in the different cultures on our planet, herein is provided a compilation of wisdom for preserving, maintaining and—when necessary—re-claiming health. This wisdom has been carefully chosen from the spiritual philosophy of many masters throughout history.

The student will study and become familiar with simple strategies for healthy living which have scriptural, scientific and practical foundations. These practices are not new-age but have been analyzed, assessed, and chosen for their practical benefits. They are presented to you as part of our “prescription” for healthier living.

Health is wealth, and any time-tested practice which will be of benefit should be investi­gated, assessed and where practical, implemented. These can be viewed as a starting point for the journey of improved health.

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will have a greater understand­ing of health-promoting practices which range from the ridiculously simple to those which will require great diligence in practice. Students will be able to effectively integrate these into their own lives and be able to enrich the lives of those who present for care/counseling in the prac­tices. This course is an overview on how to improve virtually every important vital human func­tion. Covered is important wisdom related to the science of breath, sweat practices, ways to keep growing effectively, eating right, science of sleep, “laughter therapy” and ways to improve sexual function. In each prescription, the student is given a foundation for further research and application.

Upon embarking on this study (this is one area when one can never “complete” a study), the student will have a foundation for seeking further insight and explanation into some of life’s mysteries, such as questions of “Being” and “What is truth?”, and gain foundational wisdom related to Eastern philosophy and spirituality and be able to bring these into the health equa­tion first for themselves and ultimately to benefit those who present for care/counseling. This is a path to enlightenment, one of many. Eastern spirituality, Judaism and Christianity dictate that if we wish to attain wealth, we should practice the giving of wealth to attenuate us to sub­sequently deal with riches. Similarly, if we strive for longevity, we should practice fearlessness (fear robs one of health and life), and finally if we are to grow our intelligence, wisdom and attain enlightenment, we should practice the giving of wisdom through our teaching and mentoring. This is the essence of what you have chosen to undertake as a vital component of your study.
