Welcome!


 

Hello and welcome to The Whole Life Solution!

I couldn’t be more excited to have the opportunity to share with you the unique and effective all in one personal development system that I’ve been able to put together here.

This self help program, called The Whole Life Solution, is something that I myself have always been after in life.

It is a program that includes practical tools for emotional healing, finding inner joy, and that also allows one to create whatever life they’d like on their own terms.

It is also a revolutionary new philosophical model of what we call the self.

Although it is an all in one personal development system that anyone can and will benefit from, it is also designed specifically for those who have endured intense trauma in their lives and who suffer from something like ptsd or even complex ptsd.

Regardless of where you are in your life and of what you’d like to experience and accomplish, The Whole Life Solution is your all in one Swiss army knife that does indeed cover the areas of mental, physical, emotional, personal, social, financial, and even spiritual growth and well-being.

 

About Me


 

 

My Story


My name is Allen Justin Vanderwende, you can call me Justin, and I am the creator and founder of The Whole Life Solution.

The Whole Life Solution is the culmination of more than 15 years of my journey for understanding the areas of emotional health and well-being, as well as the area of spiritual truth.

Like many, I grew up in a particularly difficult home and background, and sought first and foremost to understand why there was so much suffering in my own personal world.

I then wanted to discover why there was so much suffering in the world in general.

So I began my journey by watching and observing the people around me, which led me to asking my own internal questions about life.

It wasn’t long before I was delving into all kinds of books in search for the answers I was looking for.

At the same time I was brought to a family therapist around the age of 6 as my parents got a divorce and some felt it would be good if I went.

I found that I really enjoyed therapy, because I had someone who would actually listen to me and take me seriously, and that I could also exchange philosophical ideas with about life.

It was around the age of 15 that I fell into sort of an existential depression and felt lost and stuck.

In a most unexpected turn of events, I was introduced to a book called Conversations with God that completely transformed my life.

In fact, I also had some sort of a mystical or transcendental experience where I felt that I had found something deep within myself that I felt I had lost.

Needless to say, my thirst for truth and answers increased ten fold.

At this point not only was I seeing therapists and doctors for various answers, and not only was I reading tons of books, but I began going to all kinds of seminars for self help as well as spiritual retreats.

I listened to and learned from some of the greatest teachers in the world from various areas of expertise, but for whatever reason it never seemed like any one particular person or group had all the answers that I personally needed.

In fact it got to the point where I started to realize that my spiritual life and life in general was being hampered by my emotional pain and blockages, and so I began to focus on learning what was wrong with me and how to heal myself emotionally.

 

I went to traditional therapists, shadow workers, inner child workshops, personal development workshops, various kinds of spiritual healers, gurus, and spent all kinds of time meditating and doing yoga among other things.

But for whatever reason, no one person or group was ever able to adequately address what was going on with me or what I needed to heal from it.

I would later come to find out that I was struggling with something called complex ptsd or complex post traumatic stress disorder as a direct result of narcissistic abuse I experienced from my parents growing up.

For whatever reason complex ptsd or cptsd was not widely known by the mental health field as a whole as it is a stress disorder caused by trauma rather than any kind of chemical imbalance.

Luckily I was able to discover this for myself and gradually create tools I needed to heal and grow in a real way, but it was unbelievably difficult for me to do and I had no help from any therapist or doctor I ever saw.

Learning about complex ptsd and the fact that I had been struggling with it also explained why various intensive workshops of intense immersion and vulnerability with tons of other people never seemed to work for me.

It was because my brain was deeply conditioned to not trust people at all and that being vulnerable and open was dangerous.

For someone who has grown up with abuse or narcissistic abuse, trying to be vulnerable and trusting with others is almost impossible.

And if they are forced to do it an an intense and immersive environment, it may even re-traumatize the person and cause them to feel even more hopeless, broken, and dejected.

It was because of my experiences with cptsd that I knew a new method for healing was needed for those who suffered with the effects of intense trauma.

Furthermore, while many of these workshops, teachers, and guides were great and did provide many beneficial tools and insights, I could never understand why it seemed that the area of emotional health and wellbeing was never bridged with the area of spirituality and spiritual growth.

My question was always:  why were these two worlds separate and apart from one another?

Getting tired of having to go on a wild goose chase to get all the answers and solutions to the issues I was facing, and feeling it was ridiculous to have to do so, I began to wonder why there wasn’t a better model for the self that connected everything together for personal development, emotional healing, AND spiritual growth that was also accessible to those who have been through intense trauma.

On top of that, I was also interested in practical, effective, and flexible tools that anyone could have access to and that would be completely compatible with any path of healing, growth, or belief system that one might be part of.

It was because of this great interest of mine, coupled with the complicated and difficult journey I had to undertake to find real answers and healing for myself, that I had this idea for what is now The Whole Life Solution.

Having left no stone unturned in my search for both healing and for truth, I can tell you that this course is unique.

It is a method and process that will provide benefit to you regardless of where you are in your healing and growing journey.

Perhaps my favorite part about it is that it is designed to be done all on your own and in your own time, and does not require you to go to a massive workshop with hundreds or even thousands of people and to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars to do it.

As stated above, I truly couldn’t be more excited to be able to share this unique and powerful process with you after my years of struggle and searching for the answers for healing and for spiritual growth.

My greatest passion is your genuine happiness, and I am dedicated and available to help you to achieve that in your life, both conceptually as well as experientially.

I have indeed experienced unbelievable states of joy and bliss personally and know how anyone can experience this for themselves as well.

If you’ll give me the chance, I’ll show you.

My Experience and Expertise


As stated, I have studied and learned from countless sources on wellness, healing, and spirituality for more than 15 years.

I have also learned directly from some of the world’s greatest teachers, healers and guides.

 

 

My experience includes:

  • Being a well versed and seasoned student of A Course in Miracles
  • Being an initiate into the ancient science of Kriya Yoga and a direct disciple of Paramahamsa Prajnanananda
  • Being a student of TLC, The Living Course, involving intensive inner child work
  • Being a student of Tony Robbins
  • Being a former student of Shusara Akona Kumara of The Kumara Center for Spiritual Awareness
  • Having years of experience with various therapists, guides, and having read countless book on the issues of emotional health and well-being along with spirituality and spiritual growth

Why I Want to Help People


My primary passion is in helping people to find real healing and joy in their lives in a practical, effective, accessible, AND affordable way.

I know first hand what suffering intensely and feeling lost and hopeless in life is like.

I also know what it’s like to struggle with something as intense and as invisible as complex ptsd is, as well as having had to deal with narcissistic abuse and abandonment in my own family.

Furthermore, I have also seen and experienced first hand that for whatever reason, the mental health field is sorely lacking in many of the insights and tools that people need in order to understand what is going on with them, as well as how to truly heal.

So many people are suffering and struggling in life from unacknowledged and unhealed emotional pain.

And many people have the philosophy to ‘just get over it’ while they continue to carry pain around that affects so many areas of their lives.

My philosophy is not to ‘just get over’ anything, but rather to acknowledge and move through whatever is within you that is causing you pain and holding you back.

Based on my own personal journey and experimentation with various methods for healing and empowerment, I am absolutely confident that I can help you to access the joy that is already within you and to remove any blockages that may be holding you back.

When you are healing, free, clear, and in line with your own inner joy and happiness in life, you can then be in a much greater position to create life on your terms rather than be blown about haphazardly by the winds of fate.

The Goal of This Site


With that said, the overall goal of The Whole Life Solution site is to be a central hub of information, resources, and tools for helping people to be able to heal, find inner joy, and create life on their terms.

Whether you are looking to improve your life a little, or to take your personal journey all the way up to spiritual realization and total wholeness and joy, The Whole Life Solution as a site, channel, podcast, and philosophy, is designed to be just that, the WHOLE life solution.

As a method and technique, The Whole Life Solution is a unique, simple, yet powerful process for taking care of every aspect of our lives:

  • Mental
  • Emotional
  • Physical
  • Personal
  • Social
  • Financial
  • and Spiritual

In other words, it is a simple, powerful, self contained program for self healing, self empowerment, and self growth on all levels.

Traditional therapy and the use of medication certainly do have their place, and what is being offered here is no substitute for professional help if you feel you need it.

However, The Whole Life Solution is capable of being a powerful aid and tool to help you in this process of healing and any other path of healing or growth you may be on.

It’s time to take your life back, to find real healing and joy in your life, as well as to live it on your terms.

Welcome to The Whole Life Solution.

Should you feel you’d like to reach out to me personally for anything at all, I am always available to help as much as I can and would love to hear from you.

Warmly,

Justin Vanderwende

    What an exciting concept you have here! And it is soooo needed! So much of our world’s brokenness could be alleviated if individuals were aware of their inner life and gave it as much consideration as they do their bodies and their possessions. We need more awareness and integration, not more busyness and stuff.
    Keep up the good work! I’ll be anxious to see what your course looks like when you have it available.

    1. Thank you Kathleen I appreciate that! I also agree that what people and the world need overall is a look within themselves to see what’s working and what isn’t working. I’ll be sure to keep everyone updated as to when the course itself is coming out, but I’ll be referencing other tools and means to start to change our inner worlds so we can start to see a change in our outer worlds.
