Mind, Body, Soul and Spirit Integration

Many are seeking holistic and integrative approaches to health and wellness. We have all heard the words mind, body, soul and spirit. We know they describe aspects of a human being, but do we really stop to think about what these words really mean and their profound impact on our lives? If there is a mind, body, soul and spirit connection, it must be true that anything directly affecting a person in one of these areas, must affect all other areas as well. For example, an event or disease affecting the body must also affect the mind, the soul and the spirit. An event or dis-ease that affects the mind must also affect the body, the soul and the spirit, etc. We are whole human beings and our component parts, while seeming unrelated, are intimately connected.


Holistic addiction and trauma treatment is an approach based upon the knowledge that sustained recovery can only occur when a person’s physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health are addressed. The body, mind, soul and spirit are connected and disease affecting one of these areas must affect all other parts of the person.

Traditional treatment centers are often fragmented and focus predominately on the mind and peripherally the body.

Holistic addiction and trauma treatment is designed to address the root cause of the addiction, support total healing, and restore balance to a person’s whole being.

In The Sanctuary at Sedona’s treatment program, traditional methods are combined with comprehensive and complementary treatment methods to fully address a person’s physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and social issues

Defining the Human Body, Mind, Soul & Spirit

The Body

The body is the physical aspect of the human being. It consists of roughly 50 trillion cells which organize to form tissue, nerves, bones, and organs. The body expresses itself in the language of matter, atoms, particles, and molecules. Read how we heal the body.

The Mind

The mind is the mental/emotional aspect of the human being. The mind processes thoughts and ideas as well as feelings and emotions. The mind is consciousness, memory, and imagination Read how we heal the mind.

The Soul

The soul is a non-physical aspect of the human being. It is our personal and individuated expression of the divine or spirit. The soul is that part of us that longs to have meaning and seeks answers to the great questions: Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose? The soul is eternal and communicates in the language of creative expression such as music, art, and poetry.  Read how we heal the soul

The Spirit

The spirit is the vital force within all things. Spirit may be called God or Creator. It can also be called the Quantum field, the field, or the unmanifest. It is the indescribable organizing principle of the universe and its language is pure energy.  Read how we heal the spirit


The mind, body, soul, and spirit are the components that, collectively, comprise and define our species. If we are sick or suffering, we must work holistically to completely heal. If we do not, we are missing the connection and in all likelihood will never reach our potential for wellness and vitality. If we do not consider the whole human being, we will most likely work to alleviate symptoms of a problem and never address the root cause.

The only way to fully heal and BE Recovered from addictions and trauma, is a holistic program like The Sanctuary at Sedona.
