Mind, Body, Spirit
The mind is the most powerful muscle in your body. It has unlimited power to heal, control, and create. Keeping your mind in formidable shape is your most important task. Without utilizing the mind’s capacity, your true potential will never be known. Only you have the power to unlock your mind and all the wonders that are stored within.
Our everyday lives can bombard our mind with obsessive thoughts, anxiety, fear, and confusion. This is why it is so crucial to maintain a state of well being by letting go of the negative feelings that infiltrate our minds. At Renaissance Malibu, the mind is the primary focus in your journey to healing. We concentrate on keeping the mind at peace by combining various forms of psychological therapy with a physical and spiritual routine to keep you solely invested in strengthening yourself.
As famed author Napoleon Hill once said, “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.” This statement describes a key factor in your progress at Renaissance Malibu. Understand that certain things take time and have patience in the face of temporary defeat; this does not mean permanent failure. The staff and counselors are here to guide you along your way and help you realize your full potential. The more you allow your mind to open, the more you allow positive changes to occur with less and less effort.
An unobstructed mind full of positivity is the fulcrum of your healing at Renaissance Malibu. Maintain this and you are on your way to health and happiness.
Nurturing and strengthening our physical bodies is an all important area of well being. As our minds have a powerful effect on our body, so too do our bodies have a powerful effect on our minds. Keeping your body fit aids your overall mental health, so much so that exercise and nutrition are not just good for you, but essential in balancing your life.
At Renaissance Malibu, the first step to physical well being is detoxification. In order to prepare your mind for the journey ahead, you need to cleanse your body of all harmful toxins that affect the liver, lungs, colon, and blood. This is achieved by our in house physicians monitoring your withdrawal symptoms and creating a supervised protocol to help ease the detox process.
After the pertinent step of detox is thoroughly completed, Renaissance Malibu believes in creating a physical routine that compliments the mental and emotional aspects of your program. This includes physical exercise coupled with nutritious eating patterns. With the resources we house at our Malibu facility, your body has every advantage to become stronger during your stay. This includes serene walks, hikes overlooking the ocean, swimming, yoga, and pilates. Along with these wonderful physical activities, we offer massage and acupuncture to aid your body’s rejuvenation during your stay.
Healthy eating habits are also a significant part of treatment. Renaissance Malibu boasts some of the best 5-star cuisine, prepared fresh daily to meet required servings of all the important food groups. Gourmet meals are presented and designed to offer your body the most enhanced diet it needs to meet optimum physical health.
Along with the mental and emotional well being of the mind, and physical strength and health of the body, comes the third part of healing; the spirit. We like to think of spiritual wellness as a sense of being one with the universe. Once you align your spirit with the positive energy that surrounds you, you will find yourself free and able to live a full life.
In order to embrace spiritual growth, you must learn to let go of useless attachments. Letting go can also include saying goodbye to certain people that may hinder your spiritual well being. No matter how much you love and care for them, you need to learn to love and care for yourself first. Letting go can be achieved through different processes of meditation, breathing exercises and relaxation techniques.
Accepting change is a major step in getting in touch with your spirit. As spiritual beings, we are not meant to remain attached to one place forever. Going down a path you have chosen, rather than a path that was forced upon you is the true way to spiritual freedom and learning.
Most importantly, the staff at Renaissance Malibu believes in rigorous confrontation with your demons. Everyone makes mistakes. Coming to the realization that we are not perfect frees us from our unobtainable high expectations and allows us to live a life of happiness. Everyone deserves to live with joy, regardless of their past or imperfections. Each day you have an opportunity to create a better life for yourself, and Renaissance Malibu is here to facilitate you along your path.
