About Us

About US

At Transcendence we believe that there is a complex interconnection between mind, body, heart and spirit, and that we experience a sense of wellness and health when there is balance.

To achieve our highest potential, be healthy and happy, we need to nurture all and each of these aspects of our being. It doesn’t matter if we have a successful career, if we feel disconnected from our world and those around us. If life offers a world full of possibilities, but we are full of fears and doubts. If we have a great income, but physically and mentally we are exhausted and overwhelmed.

Our childhood and life experiences may have created hardship and wrong ideas about ourselves and the world, for example, that we are not deserving. We might be in pain, sad or confused. We might be exhausted, tired of being strong or pleasing others. We might believe that we are not enough, and the idea that all of us deserve to be happy and that we can achieve wellness may seem like an illusion.

Whatever your circumstance may be, give yourself a chance, and embrace your ability to be your own agent of well-being and change. Believe that there is a way, and that that way is through seeking balance and nurturing your mind, body, heart AND spirit.
