Self Mastery

Free yourself from habit and instill life-giving behavior

"The art of self-healing is the art of cultivating cooperation between our apparently conflicting urges which expresses as voices, sensations, emotions and over time, manifests as illness." --Charley Cropley, ND

Our behavior is the dominant influence on whether we succumb to or heal from disease. It is the essential foundation of our health. If we do not direct our behavior intelligently; if we continue doing what harms us and cannot stop, what hope do we have of regaining our precious health? 

If we cannot cease harming our bodies, we become dependent upon doctors and medicines. Yet, no medicine can possibly heal illness caused by self-injurious behavior.   The Course in Self-Mastery provides mentoring and instruction on how to free ourselves from addictive, compulsive behaviors and advises instead on how to instill life-giving behaviors leading to healing, health, and vitality. Self-Mastery is akin to self-governance, self-control, discipline, and integrity.  It is the power to make difficult and lasting improvements in our behavior; to do what is truly beneficial and to stop doing what harms, and do so with ease and compassion.


Self-mastery is literally the power to heal.

No therapy is as beneficial to our health as ceasing the behaviors that injure our metabolism and instead, engaging in the behaviors that nourish a healthy metabolism.  For most, the unconscious strategy for improving behavior is to become ever more self-critical, judgmental, and try even harder at the same failed strategy. The result is sickness, discouragement, and despair. 


We heal self-harming habitual patterns when we show up as a witness to these behaviors. We become conscious of what was once unconscious, sometimes even robotic behavior.   The Self Mastery Course was developed to break barriers that keep us in this state.  This course opens the door to empowered behavioral change through digging to the root of what keeps unconscious patterns alive in us.
