We are excited to announce that the Tree of Life will be reinstating our 27-Day Masters Intensive for this upcoming Summer of 2014.

This life-changing immersion program is open to students of Cousens School of Holistic Wellness AND non-students alike!

The 27-Day On-Campus Intensive is the time when students have the opportunity to experience the essence of the Spiritual Nutrition Mastery Program through the deep and transformational inner awakening offered by this one-of-a-kind training course. This intense on-campus immersion tests students first-hand on what it means to “hold the energy”, as Dr. Cousens stretches each student to their inner and outer limits.

Students receive an experiential understanding of “Holistic Enlightenment”, a profound way of being taught by Rabbi Gabriel Cousens, M.D. This training includes scientifically researched information on a living raw foods vegan diet, deep spiritual wisdom from a liberated perspective, and the full spectrum of what it means to live as a full human being.

Each day is packed full of immersion learning opportunities for all participants, including Kali Ray TriYoga™, hands-on raw food preparation training, Zero Point Process (a psycho-spiritual tool for letting go of patterns, habits, and addictions), lectures from leading health experts, daily meditation, and much more.

Many students who have taken this intensive have left feeling like a new person. Others say the experience is priceless, once-in-a-lifetime, and unlike anything else they have ever gone through.

Diabetes in Papua

Diabetes Prevention: Dr. Cousens Collaborates with Papua New Guinea

By Elizabeth Miae

Minister for Public Enterprises and State Investments, Ben Micah has declared war on diabetes in the country. A diabetic, Micah has come out strongly against the disease that was affecting and killing about 70% of Papua New Guineans at a time when the country is experiencing an economic boom.

Micah expressed his concern during a media conference in Port Moresby yesterday when welcoming American diabetes expert Dr. Gabriel Cousens to the country.

Cousens, a world leading research scientist on diabetes, is in the nation’s capital to give lectures on diabetes treatment, prevention programs and other lifestyle diseases. He was invited by Micah to come to PNG and share his expertise on preventing diabetes.

Micah said he was concerned about how massive funds were coming into the country from major resource projects and if misused by people it could lead to unhealthy lifestyles—the major cause of the disease in the country.

He therefore invited Cousens to work with the government for a national plan on diabetes prevention and treatment. “The experience of Nauru is one we must not repeat. Millions of mina they received from their 50 years of mining phosphate has seen Nauru having the highest rate of blindness, cancer, heart and kidney diseases due to diabetes,” the minister said. “This is a sad story and a paradox to economic development.”

“We must plan to avoid this as we embark on massive economic development that will see substantial funds on our hands and as we see lifestyle changes coming in.”

Micah told journalists that he did not really understand the disease when he was first diagnosed with type B diabetes in 2009 until he sought advice from former health minister and Anglimp-South Waghi MP Jamie Maxtone-Graham on Cousens’ programs.

“This is the biggest killer and it’s worse than HIV/AIDS but nothing has been done to address this. I’m a living testimony to this and I want to fight diabetes. I want to defeat diabetes and defeat death.”

Micah has urged people to seriously invest their time and money on their health. Cousens praised the minister for taking the lead at the national level adding that diabetes can be prevented and healed at any age.

“Some of our patients are in their 90s but through our programs they have been able to prevent and reverse their conditions.”

Cousens said if people stopped eating too much food that contained white sugar and white flour, diabetes could be prevented. He will give a public lecture on curing diabetes at Sir John Guise stadium tomorrow.
