How Your Mind Can Heal Your Body

David Hamilton at Schumacher College
£ 385.00
Fee includes private, simple accommodation, all vegetarian meals and teaching sessions.

With Best-Selling Author, David Hamilton

In this weekend course, David Hamilton will be discussing all the different ways that your mind impacts your body - from the effects of belief on healing, to how meditation and visualisation shape the brain, to how love and compassion affect the heart and blood vessels, and much, much more.

He will also be sharing practical visualisation strategies used by people around the world to help facilitate recovery from serious illness and disease.

Join us for this rare residential weekend with David at Schumacher College, on the beautiful and peaceful Dartington Hall Estate in Devon.

You will learn:

- how visualisation physically impacts the brain

- how the brain and body are connected

- how the placebo effect works and how to harness it

- how compassion can reduce inflammation

- the 7 visualisation strategies for self-healing

- strategies used by people around the world that helped them recover from illness, injury or disease

- You will also learn Quantum Field Healing, which is a visualisation technique where we imagine illness, injury, or disease from a quantum perspective instead of a physical perspective.

This course is ideal for those who are interested in alternative health, people who are therapists, healers, coaches, trainers, NLP practitioners, NHS staff, or anyone who would like a solid understanding of the mind-body connection and the scientific validation of it. The course is also ideal for people who have specific illnesses who would like to understand the different ways they can use their own mind and attitude in their healing.

Why kindness is good for you: Dr. David Hamilton at TEDx


David Hamilton PhD

Working in the pharmaceutical industry, David became fascinated by the placebo effect, how people improve through believing they are receiving a drug. He began to study mind-body interactions inhis spare time. He decided to leave the pharmaceutical industry after 4 years to write and speak about the mind, our abilities, and help people to believe in themselves. He also speaks about kindness and the idea that a small group of people with compassion and kindness in their hearts can change the world.

David Hamilton is now a bestselling author of 8 books published by Hay House, and offer talks and workshops that use science to inspire, fusing science, the mind, and spiritual wisdom.

Short Course Bursaries create an opportunity for an individual to experience the powerful transformative learning by joining a course that assists the participant to inspire their wider community and benefits from the participant’s own unique contribution. It is our hope that our bursaries support a wide cross section of participation on our short course programme. The number of bursaries available is limited, competition is strong and funding is not always available for every short course. Please be aware that most bursaries are in the region of 10% – 20% of the course fee so please be prepared to raise funding from other sources.  A bursary award is not intended to cover travel or incidental expenses.

Applications are viewed on a case-by-case basis and we are unable to enter into discussions on any decisions. We generally have many more applications for bursaries than we have funding available. We can only offer one bursary per person per year and priority is given to those who have not attended the college or received a bursary before. To help us support as many people as possible, please only apply if you would be unable to attend the course without a bursary.

How to apply for a bursary

Six weeks before the course is due to start all bursary applications will be considered and responded to.  If successful you will be required to accept our Bursary Terms and Conditions.

  1. What does a bursary mean to you?
