    Program DetailsBMS-Diagram1 

    Based on ancient spiritual disciplines, the OHI holistic healing program is
    designed to:

    • Inspire and motivate you to make healthy choices in life
    • Explore physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being
    • Integrate helpful tools and teachings in your daily life
    • Enable transformation so that you can achieve optimum health.

    This 21-day program consists of classes and activities that are taught over 3 one-week segments 

    • Week 1: Focus on the connection between the body, mind, and spirit
    • Week 2: Discover tools that can help you make healthier choices
    • Week 3: Learn how to take the program home with you.

    Upon completion of the program, you will receive an OHI Certificate of Award and join a growing community of people dedicated to living healthy, joyful, and spirit-filled lives.

    Many of our guests attend all 3 weeks in a row; others come for 1 or 2 weeks at a time and complete the 21-day program over multiple visits to OHI. Our flexible program allows you to start the 1st, 2nd, or 3rd week of the program on any Sunday at one of our healing centers at OHI Austin or OHI San Diego. 


    Our staff, missionaries, and guests help create a safe and sacred community where physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual healing can and does occur. In a spirit of love, people of all faiths experience fellowship and healing that can transform lives.

    Many members of the OHI community choose to return to OHI Austin or OHI San Diego year after year to relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy the camaraderie of old and new friends.

    To stay in touch with this community of over 20,000 active members and discover what's new at the Optimum Health Institute, sign up for the OHI Newsletter.

Spiritual Disciplines

In the Judeo Christian tradition, spiritual disciplines are a means of receiving the grace of God. They enable us to do what we cannot do on our own. By practicing spiritual disciplines, we cultivate a life in which God can bring growth, change, and transformation. Typically, spiritual disciplines are divided into two categories – internal and external. Some examples are listed below:

Internal / abstinence

  • Solitude: Be absent from others so you can be present with God
  • Silence: Quiet your voice and the voices of others, so you can listen for the voice of God
  • Fasting: Be aware of yourself and the needs of others; focus your heart on God
  • Frugality: Remove your desire for luxury and devote your resources to serving God and others
  • Secrecy: Let go of external recognition and find acceptance from God
  • Sacrifice:Give up self-security and put total trust in God

External / engagement

  • Prayer: Converse with God : Ask, listen, and open your life to change
  • Study: Change your way of thinking, your way of knowing and pursue God's truth
  • Worship: Experience the greatness of God in everything and everybody
  • Celebration: Rejoice in the goodness of God and live your life in gratitude
  • Fellowship: Gather with others to share love, joy, and encouragement
  • Service: Serve others and free yourself from arrogance and judgment
  • Submission: Be honest, open, and accountable to God and others
  • Confession: Acknowledge your offenses and find freedom in forgiveness

Practicing spiritual disciplines helps affirm your belief in God, enabling you to witness transformation in yourself and others in a community of faith, hope, and love.
