HeartSpace

Our inability to encounter each other authentically, naked if you will, not mediated through the social veneer of our personalities and concomitant strategies, may be the main reason why there is so much suffering and anxiety in the area of human relationships.

The Meaning of Money

Money in one form or another has been an integral part of the human experience almost since the beginning of recorded history. It has been both a blessing and a curse. A great deal of human suffering can be traced back to our relationship with money.

about concord institute

In October 1998 the Concord Institute for Integral Studies was set up as the main education and training centre for the Community Health Foundation (CHF), a registered UK charity founded in 1976 on Old Street in London.

The mandate of the Community Health Foundation is and has been to offer educational programmes and services to the community at large that enable people to become more self-reliant in terms of assuming greater responsibility for their health and well-being.

The particular education and training in “self-health” offered by the CHF has been variously referred to as the macrobiotic, holistic or integral approach because it takes a larger and more comprehensive view in understanding the human condition.

Among other things, this approach encompasses the physical, psychological, social and spiritual dimensions of people’s lives.

The institute discovered that taking a holistic approach was more efficacious in the long run toward restoring health and biological integrity, and for building more powerful immune capabilities for dealing with potential health problems that may lie in the future.
