Paul Weiss is a teacher and healer who joins psychology with spirituality. He founded the Whole Health Center in Bar Harbor, Maine which helps individuals, couples, and groups. WHC has recently expanded its focus to help therapists and helping professionals embrace spiritual perspectives for personal growth which then strengthens their clinical practice
The Whole Health Center has been largely a vehicle for the teaching and therapeutic work of its founder, Paul Weiss; and its vision reflects his training and experience. Paul's more traditional training includes his graduate study in counseling psychology and clinical health education. However, the roots of his work lie in his more unorthodox training, which includes more than four decades spent in the study of zen and other meditation processes, Buddhist psychology, tai chi, qi gong and other ancient energetic arts. He has resided in both Christian and Buddhist monasteries, and furthered his studies through multiple trips to India and to China, where he was certified to teach by three different schools of qi gong. Paul trained for several years in deep emotional process work; and studied as well the dyadic communication work of Charles Berner. He has trained in and practiced herbal and nutritional healing for three decades, and he is nationally certified in massage therapy. He has brought all of this training together on behalf of workshops, groups and individual clients for twenty-seven years at The Whole Health Center. Over these years, he has developed a truly holistic understanding and vision of the multi-level integrity of natural healing and personal growth. Equally important, he has brought together practical therapeutic tools that reinforce each other, but are seldom integrated in one context; and that transcend the current overly materialistic and reductionist view of physical and mental health.
