An Innovative Approach to Spiritual Wellness

Expanding a sense of purpose and meaning in life

Please Join a Unique and Innovative Research Study for Teens

The Effects of Bio-Intrinsic Transformational Therapy ™ on Depression and Anxiety in Adolescents.

Are you a teenager between the ages of 13 to 18 who is experiencing stressful emotions like irritability, anger, frustration, or sadness?  Are you worried and stressed out?  Do you feel drained and out of sync? Are you a parent or guardian of a teen who is dealing with these uncomfortable emotions?

If so, I invite you or your teen to join my innovative and groundbreaking research study. It’s called “The Effects of Bio-Intrinsic Transformational Therapy ™ on Depression and Anxiety in Adolescents.” They will learn fun and simple tools that may help.  Their participation will help us gain valuable insights into this subject.  Participation is completely voluntary, and it is free.  There is no cost to join.

What is Bio-Intrinsic Transformational Therapy™?  It is an innovative approach to spiritual wellness that incorporates and synthesizes eastern and western thought in Psychology, Medicine, Quantum Physics, Neurotheology, and Mysticism.  Bio-Intrinsic Transformational Therapy™ expresses a deep understanding of the individual personality, mind, and spirit; the individual biofield; human consciousness and mystical experience; and vibrational healing approaches. Spiritual wellness produces a state of mind-body-spirit coherence, integration, personal growth, an innate drive towards wholeness, physical and mental health, and overall feelings of well-being.
