• Title OHI Scholarship

    In a spirit of generosity, the Optimum Health Institute offers a scholarship program to those who are in great healing and financial need. The scholarship offers financial assistance to people who wish to complete the entire OHI holistic healing program in 3 consecutive weeks to address a health opportunity that is life-threatening. The OHI scholarship covers the cost of the second week and possibly the third week of the program.

    To apply for a scholarship

    You can apply online or by mail:

    When you apply, submit the following items:  

    • Scholarship application form
    • Proof of financial hardship
    • Diagnosis and prognosis from a licensed physician. This letter should be submitted on the physician’s letterhead, contain the physician’s license number, and clearly specify that your health opportunity is life-threatening.

    Your application will be reviewed by the Executive Director at OHI Austin or OHI San Diego. You will be contacted by the Scholarship Coordinator on the status of your application. If you are awarded a scholarship, we respectfully request that the information be held in confidence while on campus, as not all applicants will be granted scholarships.

    How the OHI scholarship program works

    The OHI scholarship program works as follows:  

    1. You must apply for the OHI scholarship at least two weeks prior to arriving at either OHI Austin or OHI San Diego.
    2. You must pay to attend the first week of the OHI program. This is to ensure that the OHI holistic healing program is right for you. The total cost will include 1 week of tuition and 1 week in a shared room at either OHI Austin or OHI San Diego.
    3. If you are awarded a scholarship, it will pay for the second week of tuition for the program as well as the cost of a second week in a shared room. You must attend the second week immediately after completing the first week of the program.
    4. Once you arrive at OHI, you can re-apply in person for an additional scholarship that will cover the cost of tuition and a shared room to enable you to attend the third week of the program.
    5. If you are selected as a scholarship recipient, you agree to provide a letter to the Scholarship Coordinator regarding your experience at OHI prior to finishing the program.

    Note: If you have previously completed the three week program at OHI, you are not eligible for scholarship.

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.
