How is HSIMB Different from Other KY Programs?

HSIMB is rooted in a deep and abiding understanding of the oneness of humanity. We are all energy vibrating a various frequencies that ultimately impact our mind, body and spirit. And due to the complexity of our design, the subtle energies (chakras, meridians, and other energetic expressions) and mental/emotional states of being, are just as important to consider as the human body. HSIMB values and teaches:        ​

  • trauma-sensitive care

  • career sustainability and financial planning

  • real-world application
