These programs make it easy for patients, caregivers and their home health providers to access both the information and inspiration when and where it is needed regarding timely critical issues and concerns. For caregivers wanting deeper study and research, the same website will also provide advanced clinical skills and state-of-the-art resources for continuing education.
Soul & Science is PROVEN

Created by the Sacred Art of Living Center with an international reputation in health care education and caregiver support, Soul & Science lessons integrate medical research, the humanities, depth psychology and cultural diversity.
Soul & Science creates COMMUNITY
Every Soul & Science lesson for caregivers is part of a larger body of work. Video components will be integrated into complete program series and a larger online library for deeper study and research. Forums will enable caregivers and care receivers alike to network with others around important topics for mutual support and learning.
Soul & Science is TIMELY
There is a growing movement on the part of both health care consumers and research institutions to bridge the gap between science and technology and the art and soul of caregiving. Soul & Science is on the cutting edge of a more integrated science that is “measuring the immeasurable” and supporting a whole person approach to healing and wellness.

Soul & Science EMPOWERS people
When people face serious or long-term illness we believe that there are important choices based on emerging best practices as well as the experience of others who have faced similar situations. Soul & Science believes that knowledge is power. By listening to leading voices in the health care community that include physicians, nurses, aides, social workers, chaplains and community health workers – patients and their loved ones can consider unmet needs and options that are sometimes overlooked when the focus has been primarily on the biology of illness.
