I have a friend in the northeast US who is in the alternative health field. She’s currently living paycheck to paycheck and wants to increase her earning potential. Her main interests are in yoga, meditation/mindfulness, herbalism, daily ritual, music, and wilderness therapy. The Transpersonal Psychology MA at Naropa University seems tailor fit for what she wants to do, but she’s wondering if there are better options for her. Should she instead pursue a degree in social work or clinical psychology? The thought doesn’t thrill her and she doesn’t want to go into debt, which she would have to, were she to pursue more formal education. Should she be pursuing more training, i.e. yoga teacher training, meditation teacher, certified community herbalist, wellness coach, instead?
How can she increase her earnings in the alternative health field? Any suggestions for her are appreciated.
