This training is for anyone who works in the fields of mental health, ayurveda, or yoga, and for anyone who simply wants to explore the therapeutic applications of these three powerful healing disciplines. With a better understanding of all three fields, you can create comprehensive treatment plans to more fully support yourself or others. Plus, if you’ve been wanting to explore or grow a profession in the wellness arena, this training is the first step toward becoming a certified 3 Wisdom Traditions Wellness Coach!
To sustain healthy functioning we need resilience, adaptability and interpersonal support. Everyone has challenges in life and sometimes needs support to manage these challenges. Often, the tools of yoga therapy, ayurvedic medicine and traditional clinical psychotherapy are called upon to bring us back into balance in our true nature.
The 3 Wisdom Traditions (3WT) training is designed to support your recovery from imbalances with a wrap around treatment plan to support you as you work toward self-evolution, or support your client in between sessions as you work on clinical issues.
Creating a baseline of support is critical. Building practices to build resilience and adaptability, along with attachment for healthy relationships and communities are what the 3 Wisdom Traditions Wellness Coaches are trained to do.
