Experts from UCLA's world-renowned Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior (including leaders from both the Mindful Awareness Research Center, and the Tennenbaum Family Center for the Biology of Creativity) and the Center for East-West Medicine offer a series of courses focused on understanding the links among brain, mind and wellness. The courses emphasize both the scientific foundations and practical applications of methods that aim to enhance health, well being, and creativity. Explicitly trans disciplinary, the curriculum draws from practices that span the globe, and considers ancient traditions, current practices, and projected future developments.


The following three courses, which can be taken separately, provide a unique integrated experience when taken together:

This course provides an overarching introduction to integrative medicine, including the theoretical underpinnings, scientific studies, and clinical applications. Particular emphasis will be given on the diagnostic and therapeutic modalities originated from traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).
