About Core Wellness

The concept for Core Wellness Healing arose out of a desire for simple natural solutions to combat the challenges of living and working in this fast paced modern society. We were inspired to help others as we have been helped in our lives.

We are in the school of life to learn about our inner self and express that to the world. We discovered digging deep into the soil of our souls was meaningful, exciting and productive. We learned that we can live happily and fulfilled as ordained by the universe if given the proper tools.

My midlife epiphany provided valuable lessons that changed me forever. I could either spend time on the therapist couch getting medicated, the operating room table getting my problems cut out or I could do the excavating and dig into the soil of my own soul to unearth my issues. I dug deep and wide to discover the answers were buried within. Listening to my heart and aligning my values with my spirit, so that my inner world reflected my outer world, gave me peace. This connection of the mind, body spirit made the difference! We want to support and educate you to do the same.

Our creative curriculum bridges the gap between traditional and alternative healing practices for persons seeking “more with less.” Fun-filled activities encourage experiential and reflective learning. We use resources cultivated from our personal and professional experiences to make a difference for you.

The magical lands of Hawaii with its cultural beauty and natural healing energy are home. Come join us, as we help you discover your true self and learn to breathe again.
