Through a compelling and extensive body of research connected to the field of psychoneuroimmunology, we have learned that conscious and unconscious images within us have a direct impact on our physiology, offering guided imagery an important role for a range of health-related conditions. Examples include the ability to lower cholesterol and glucose levels in the blood, heighten short-term immune cell activity, lower blood pressure, reduce complications related to surgery, as well as relief from anxiety, and enhance well-being. An interactive style of imagery facilitation that navigates the mind-body-emotions-spirit matrix will be taught and practiced, along with an understanding of its applications for a variety of health and lifestyle concerns. This is a 3-unit class offered as an elective in the Integrative Health Studies master’s program and cross-listed with the Counseling Psychology programs. Priority to IHL students
