Discovering the Total Self Diploma Program

DISCOVERING THE TOTAL SELF

Discovering the Total Self Program is Transformational Arts’ original and core program. By combining ancient spiritual wisdom, esoteric principles, and contemporary psychology with emotional healing, you will have the opportunity to learn both the theoretical and experiential components of each module.

  • Develop a faster and greater ability to heal physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually
  • Reconnect to your passion for life
  • Experience the power of living in the now
  • Discover uncertainty can be comfortable when we connect to our ‘wise’ self
  • Learn to make clear choices that reflect who you are
  • Tap into your own unlimited creativity
  • Access your intuition

The Total Self Program is a series of 10 modules, each 20 hours long, totaling 200 hours. All 10 modules are a pre-requisite/co-requisite for the Spiritual Director Program. Modules #1, #4, #5 and #6 are required for the Holistic Health Practitioner Program, Holistic Certificate Programs and Coaching.

 Taking this program will develop skills and competencies that are usually described as soft skills but very necessary and sought after in today’s employment markets.1 Dartmouth University President, Philip Hanlon, call them ‘Power Skills’.2 You will develop your creativity, adaptability to change, prioritize your self-awareness, and value your self-esteem. By improving your listening skills, you will be able to explain and set healthy boundaries, build upon your conflict resolution skills, and develop team building skills. You will be able to discuss the importance of emotional regulation and explain emotional intelligence. You can choose how to develop using your own voice, your intuition or gut feelings, and be able to explain how Body, Mind and Spirit interconnect to establish real health and wellness. You will develop the theoretical base upon which all TAC programs build.

You are supported throughout your learning by a faculty of trained instructors who have graduated from the Total Self Program and Transformational Arts’ Professional Training Programs.

At least 75% attendance is required for program completion. This program is open to everyone and can be completed at your own pace, taken one module at a time, be accelerated, or you can take only the modules that interest you. Mostly evening classes; however, some daytime classes are offered.
