This influenced her focus on health and healing. She sought out various ways to heal her body and mind.

Darlene's approach to health is a holistic one. She believes in working with the whole person, taking their complete lifestyle into account. This means that not only your physical state is important, but also that of mental and emotional states all in one. She encourages training connecting the mind, body, spirit, and nutrition all in a balanced lifestyle.
