Training Program

What is meant by integrative wellbeing? 

Think of coordinating diverse elements into an optimally functioning whole like a magnificent orchestra where the different instruments and sections are playing in balance with each other as the composer intended. The musicians are listening to each other and playing their best in harmony with the whole orchestra, while following the conductor's direction. The result is something supremely beautiful, rich, and sonorous.

What are the building blocks of total wellbeing?

Learn more about the components of YOU and how the parts of the self can work together more harmoniously as a healthy whole under the direction of the free-will personality.

What are the secrets to achieving and maintaining higher natural states of wellbeing?

You are the master of your self, of your wellbeing. Into your hands has been given mind and free will to decide who you want to be and how you want to live.


The Integrative Wellbeing Training Program


In UUI's new Integrative Wellbeing Training Program, you will discover fuller and deeper states of mental, emotional, bodily, and spiritual wellbeing. These manifest as the experience of present-moment awareness, true self-respect and love of others, joy and happiness, a sense of meaning and purpose in life, mindful living, physical health, the ability to manage stress, and profound satisfaction in the actualization of one's talents. In this program, you will explore the source of true holistic wellbeing, which is spiritual in nature, and that life is about actualizing our biological, mindal, and spiritual endowments.

The Integrative Wellbeing Training Program offers two tracks:

  • Personal Wellbeing Training Program - for individual practitioners of spirit-led holistic living
  • Integrative Wellbeing Coach Training Program - for those who seek to serve society as facilitators of the spiritual transformation of individuals and as integrative wellbeing coaches.

Both tracks will feature a core curriculum of five courses plus elective courses in the areas of specialization. The five core courses focus on the basic concepts and principles of Physical Wellbeing, Emotional Wellbeing, Intellectual Wellbeing, Spiritual & Soul Wellbeing, and Integrative Wellbeing. In addition, the program will eventually include courses in the areas of social, occupational, and environmental wellbeing. We will examine these aspects in terms of personal, interpersonal, and transpersonal wellbeing. 

The five core areas are described below: 

1. Spiritual and Soul Wellbeing

Spiritual wellness involves having a set of guiding beliefs, practices, principles, or values that help give direction to one's life. There is a religious dimension to the human mind which, when activated, contributes greatly to the person's holistic wellbeing. Spiritual wellbeing encompasses a high level of faith-trust, hope and commitment to our individual beliefs which provide a sense of meaning and purpose in our life. Prayer, meditation, and worship are practices which foster a connection to the Spirit, to the Source of our being.

The spiritual nucleus of the self is the source of the drive to seek meaning and purpose in human existence, to question the nature of everything, and to appreciate the things which cannot be readily explained or understood.  A spiritually-led person seeks to harmonize the values and meanings of the inner and outer worlds of the self. How a person experiences and acts in the outer world is a reflection of the inner landscape, beliefs, and values of the mind. 

2. Emotional Wellbeing

Emotional wellbeing is experienced as the ability to feel and express human emotions such as happiness, sadness and anger and to experience a sense of fulfillment in life. It means having the ability to love and be loved. Emotional wellness refers to the value level of human existence in which we are able to feel and sense higher states of being like optimism, self-esteem, love, self-acceptance, awe, and the ability to share feelings. 

3. Intellectual Wellbeing

The intellectual dimension of wellbeing is cultivated by stimulating mental activities. Our minds need to be continually inspired and exercised just as our bodies do. People who possess a high level of intellectual wellness tend to have an active mind and a desire for continuous learning. An intellectually healthy person uses the resources available to expand their knowledge and improve their skills throughout their lifetime. Keeping up-to-date on current events and participating in activities that arouse our minds are also important for intellectual fitness.

4. Physical Wellbeing

Maintaining the fitness of our body at genetic and cellular levels through good habits like healthy food intake, physical activity and exercise, and adequate sleep contributes to our physical wellbeing so that we can perform well in daily living.

5. Integrative Wellbeing

Integrative wellbeing describes a state of living in holistic equilibrium in which all the parts of the self (body, intellect, emotions, soul, and spirit) are well understood and expressed. The self-system is well-balanced and highly coordinated. It is characterized by discriminating awareness of the different parts of the self and and how they interact with each other to form a holistic system that performs along a spectrum ranging from poor health to radiant health.

This heightened consciousness can lead to greater self-mastery which in turn allows us to be more fully present to life and people in our daily existence. Greater self-mastery leads to a state of non-resistance (relative freedom from stress) to life as it is. This resulting state of flow allows the self to be more present and aware and to function optimally in the arenas of our life.

The UUI Integrative Wellbeing Training Program rests on the supreme knowledge that each of us is a perfecting and beloved child of God with an eternal destiny. This truth imbues our life with enormous meaning and value. It underlies the living experience of holistic wellbeing and forms the foundation of our moral and spiritual decision-making.


In addition, future courses will be added to the curriculum which will explore aspects of social, occupational, and environmental wellbeing.

The Integrative Wellbeing Coaching Track

The Coaching track requires three additional courses in coaching and mentoring in order to become a certified Integrative Wellbeing Coach.
