Our interactive programs, such as Spiritual Arts, Master’s and Doctoral programs allow students to meet either weekly, biweekly or monthly with our professors, scientists, researchers and ministers. This facilitates a greater degree of involvement and deeper understanding of our healing model. In addition to these live meetings, online lectures and off-site training is available. 

Consider Working With Us Because...


1. Our global affiliations are vast and respected. They include organizations such as the United Nations, the World Health Organization, Health and Human Services (H.H.S.) and the American Cancer Society (our founder was honored as man of the year in 2007). In addition, our founder is Health and Wellness Director for the Nobel Peace Prize Organization's World Peace One (the social arm of this Organization), and is involved in countless international medical, humanitarian, missionary and Samaritan organizations, as well as animal rights organizations.


2. Our graduates do not “practice”. Rather, they are involved in "spiritual/scientific care counseling research". This proprietary methodology is the key that allows one to engage in and promote ethical and unhindered healing.


3. It has been said: "Medice, cura te ipsum". This literally means “ Physician heal thyself”. In order to become effective healers we must first learn how to heal ourselves and our loved ones. The UHSS provides the tools to do just that...and then some. Our instructors are leaders in the world of healing, with outstanding credentials.
