Summary [[SummaryText::The LIFE institute provides innovative health services based on mind-body medicine to people living with HIV/AIDS, breast cancer, and HIV-Hepatitis C co-infection; conducts research on the role of psycho-social issues in disease onset and progression; and provides training and consultation on operating L.I.F.E. to health agencies nationally.

The L.I.F.E. Program® does not conflict with established medical therapies for HIV, and in fact it can provide much-needed support for primary healthcare. Participants in the L.I.F.E. Program® simply discover new ways that disease progression can be replaced by health progression. We believe that the best treatment for HIV disease is a collaboration between anti-HIV medical treatment and immune-boosting psychological treatment. If you are interested in one of our workshops, please preregister at 415.674.4700

Mission Statement: Shanti enhances the quality of life, health and well-being of people living with life-threatening illnesses, including Breast Cancer and HIV/AIDS.

Founded in 1974 by Dr. Charles Garfield, Shanti has been at the forefront of a growing national movement to enhance the quality of life for persons living with life-threatening or chronic illnesses by providing volunteer-based emotional and practical support.

Key to the success of Shanti's mission is the Shanti Model of Peer Support, which is both a philosophy and a set of techniques that are used throughout our work. It is a way of being which allows two persons to meet as equals. It is a way of relating to others that is characterized by certain values and attitudes.
