Human experience is shaped within multiple domains: biological, psychological, social and spiritual. Our genetics and life experience powerfully influence the structure and function of the human brain. Psychological traits and processes play a central role in determining how we perceive ourselves and others. Social life is an essential ground of nurturance and support. Spirituality connects us to an invisible reality within which we can find solace, support and meaning.
An overarching theme in Dr. Deri's approach to his work is his belief that we are meant to live lives centered in wholeness, emotional well-being, personal power and purpose. His integral approach fosters healing, growth and transformation with the goal of helping others to reach their full potential.
