– Interpersonal Neurobiology

La Maida Institute

la-maidaThe final phase in our vision is the La Maida Institute, a first of its kind model in a communal setting whereby a more affordable and comprehensive health care model can be tested and studied. Our vision for La Maida is to build on our current team model of integrative & transformational treatments to design a complete preventive health program in a community setting. The goal is to bring an age-old approach to a preventive health care model by fostering group programs, supporting dialogue and teaching people how to support one another better. This notion of communal health should not be surprising since that is how we as humans have always healed emotionally and spiritually, in shared experiences that bring us together to support each other with wisdom, and support each other as an interdependent community.
