Event description

Description

There is an innate healing potential in the human mind, body and nature.

Yet the current model of healthcare perpetuates the belief that health and illness management are in the hands of the providers, whether these are individuals or systems. This model undermines the innate mechanisms that are available to every human being to access wellbeing and overcome illness.

The conference will seek to redress this imbalance by exploring mind-body interactions and more holistic approaches to physical and mental health to empower the public and pave the way for a new paradigm in healthcare.
