The Whole Health Medicine Institute's 2020 Program

Courses Start March 30, 2020

Join your peers for one of two transformational programs that will change your world.

  • Revolutionalize how you practice health care.
  • ​Reclaim control of your own health.
  • Become a fierce warrior for a new health paradigm.

    

“The all-powerful mind can control your reality, and all you have to do is learn to harness it.” 
—Lissa Rankin, Mind Over Medicine
Dear Friends,

In 2008 I took a leap of faith and quit my stable, lucrative, and stressful job as a full-time physician in a busy managed care OB/GYN practice.
 
I knew I was called to be a healer, but practicing medicine within our broken health care system was sucking my soul dry.
 
I couldn’t help feeling like I was colluding with a corrupt system that gives lip service to patient well-being. While so many doctors I know really do care about patient well-being, the system puts profits before people. 
 
My disillusionment with the system I had worked so hard to be a part of left me with a burning desire to create a revolution in health care. I wanted to change how we think about health and healing and to shift the paradigm of modern medicine in ways that actually optimize health outcomes. 
 
I came to realize the best way I could do this was by developing a training program to teach what I’ve learned.
 
This is how the Whole Health Medicine Institute was born. A place where health care providers and those seeking healing could receive a deep and direct understanding of the body-mind-spirit continuum so we could scale this, infiltrate it into public health, and bring real healing to those who need it most.
 
Today, I invite you to join me in this revolution by learning how to practice Whole Health Medicine yourself, as a healer or in your own life.
 
Over the span of your immersion in the revolutionary curriculum I've developed you’ll have the opportunity to experience your own deep healing, learn from pre-eminent teachers about the psychospiritual dimensions of healing, and create a foundation for your own health care practice.
 
My deepest desire is that you too contribute in ways that align with your authenticity, that you heal the wounds to your own soul from our broken system, and that you thrive in your life and your work. 
All my best,

Lissa

Listen to Lissa Rankin, MD share the intent & objectives 
of the Whole Health Medicine Institute. 

What Is 
Whole Health Medicine?
Whole Health requires bringing all the tools in the medicine boxes of all departments and cultures together, and doing so with respect, reverence, and regard for the sacred medicines of all physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and energetic healing modalities. 

Whole Health asks us to end the fragmentation that divides healing into different academic silos, where “never the twain shall meet.”

Whole Health invites unification of all of the aspects of what makes us whole as human beings, encompassing our: 
  • Mind, body, spirit, and energy
  • Relationships
  • ​Works
  • ​Creativity
  • ​Sexuality
  • ​Living environments
  • And all other aspects of what makes us authentically expressed, integrated humans.
Many who are trained to treat one aspect of health get insufficient education in other aspects of Whole Health. Their focus is narrowly directed at specific aspects of a person rather than the complete picture of their life:
  • Body Focus: doctors, nutrition coaches, fitness instructors, bodyworkers, herbalists, naturopaths, chiropractors
  • Mind Focus: psychologists, psychiatrists, life coaches
  • ​Spirt Focus: priests, rabbis, gurus, spiritual teachers, chaplains
For example, body-focused practitioners tend to focus on traditional healthy behaviors, such as conventional medical approaches, diet, exercise, physical adjustments, or herbs and supplements, while neglecting psycho-spiritual and energetic root causes and treatments. 
The Whole Health Medicine Institute seeks to fill in the gaps. We specialize in educating body-oriented practitioners who have insufficiently educated in mental, emotional, spiritual, and trauma healing modalities that may help cure otherwise “incurable,” “untreatable,” or “terminal” conditions.
"The all-powerful mind can control your reality, and all you have to do is learn to harness it."

The Whole Health 
Medicine Institute
Our mission at Whole Health Medicine Institute is to reintroduce an understanding and practice of the psychospiritual dimension into the healing process.
The WHMI exists to pick up where mainstream health modalities are failing. That is in deepening the knowledge and understanding of the extensive power and profound impact of practicing psychospiritual transformation as an intentional and expertly integrated piece of the healing process.
WHMI brings a deep and direct understanding of the body-mind-spirit continuum to physicians, nurses, health experts, and health care providers. We believe that this understanding is critical for complete and sustained healing and growth, and necessary to reveal the untapped resources and potential of your body.
Our courses, workshops, and training are designed to help you understand and apply a Whole Body Medicine approach in your life and in your practice.
We support practitioners in building a thriving healing practice as we believe this is necessary to provide the material and organizational resources needed to accelerate the reintegration of psychospiritual work into the healing process and the health care industry.

The Three Pillars of Whole Health Medicine Institute Curriculum

Heal the Healer

Core Master Programs

Business Development

We can help others heal and heal our health care system. But to be effective healers, we must heal ourselves first. The Healer aspect of WHMI is one of the most radically transformational aspects of the program. You will be asked to dive into your own psycho-spiritual healing journey because we can’t effectively heal others if we are operating from our own wounds.
The 2020 core curriculum will include Lissa’s updated teachings of the revised 6 Steps To Healing Yourself. In addition with over 40 experts in energy medicine, mind-body-spirit integration, research, practice, and business building in more than 31 recorded and live modules we offer everything we think well-trained mind-body-spirit practitioners should know about what conventional medicine and psychology tend to leave out. 
We want you to successfully integrate your insights and understanding into the professional world and as part of the program, we help you develop a visionary and successful business by helping you translate your new knowledge, awareness, and tools into a practical, grounded, thriving business that actually pays the bills and allows you to bring your unique contributions into a world in need of your gifts.

Praise for the WHMI
Mary Louder, MD
I was at a crossroads as to how I wanted to practice as a physician.

I wanted to be seen for who I was and how I practiced medicine. 

Thank you, for the excellent program that challenged me to grow and to step into my true calling.
Christine Gibson, MD
 I knew the health system was broken and that I was broken within it.

Something I could not have dreamed of before I began this healing journey and perspective shift. 

Lissa helps you understand that we are not broken, just not integrating our wholeness, and she teaches us how. 
Kay Corpus, MD
The Whole Health Medicine Institute came into my life at just the right moment. I felt the familiar pressures in my medical practice... It was exhausting.

No place have I found such an innovative and intuitively designed program.

I am forever grateful to Lissa and the WHMI for breaking open my heart and mind to possibility.
Timea Belej-Rak, MD
I have found new meaning in my work, and the world of medicine as I used to know it is forever changed! 

I have connected with my new tribe and made friendships that will last a lifetime.

I can’t wait to be able to heal more of my patients as a whole, rather than just a physical being. 
Kamilla (Kamie) Buddemeier M.D., F.A.C.C., F.S.C.A.I
This journey is not for the faint of heart, but ask yourself – “Am I more afraid of realizing my true potential or am I more afraid of staying stuck in a position not aligned with my inner purpose”? 

I invite you to go inward and ask the question that may ignite your life!
Gail Yablonsky
Incredible cutting-edge material & concepts! 

I now have a structured format practicing as a holistic health care counselor.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I contact customer service at Whole Health Medicine Institute?
Please contact us by sending an email to pearl@lissarankin.com
I’m looking to expand my education and potentially start a practice outside the insurance-based system. How should I decide what to do?
If you are looking to study a specific healing modality or body-oriented practice then there are many highly recommended schools that provide this type of focused study.

If you are seeking to understand and practice the psychological and spiritual healing and transformation that is the critical element across all practices – whether they are allopathic, integrative, or alternative – then WHMI is for you. WHMI training focuses very specifically on root cause work and personal transformation
Which should I choose, the Immersion Curriculum or the Virtual Curriculum?
The in-person retreats associated with the Immersion Curriculum are a powerful opportunity to accelerate your personal and professional growth, but it is a personal inquiry as to whether it works for your schedule, the depth with which you want to explore this new way of approaching health care, and your finances. 
How much of a time commitment will this be? Will this interfere with my full-time job, the attention I give my children and my partner, or my self-care?
Whether you are a busy professional, in transition, ready to restart, the program is designed to adjust to your professional needs and availability. You are able to choose all modules or just the areas you want to focus on. Here some examples of different intentions.

For Self-healing:
Estimated number of hours invested: 65 hours (2.5 hours per week over 6 months)

For a career-boost:
Estimated number of hours invested: 105 hours (3.75 hours per week over 6 months)

As a fast-track to revenue:
Estimated number of hours invested: 145 hours (5.25 hours per week over 6 months)
 What if I can only come to one of the retreats?
If there’s uncertainty around whether you’ll be available, write to Pearl@LissaRankin.com and explain your situation. This can be discussed on a case by case basis.
Can I make up a retreat if I miss one?
Unfortunately, this is not possible. 
Why did you decide to extend the WHMI program to providers who are not licensed medical professionals?
We feel there are many accomplished health care providers outside the medical establishment who will benefit from the work we do.

We take great care in vetting participants to maintain the integrity of patient care, professional mastery, and ethics. 
What inspires people to sign up for this program?
People enroll in WHMI for different reasons, including
  • Wanting to stay on the cutting edge of how best to help patients and clients heal in a Whole Health-informed way.

  • Being personally sick, on disability, and seeking healing from a chronic illness or a health crisis and they want to use the tools in this program personally.
