Laurel Herman, CHHC, AADP

Laurel is a Certified Holistic Health Coach, a London-trained chef, and speaker.  A diverse healing arts practitioner, she not only uses organic foods, but also emphasizes their deep-level spiritual connection to us.  Nourishment comes in many forms, and Lauren intertwines coaching and food in a masterful way that provides nutrition to the soul.  Her book, The Inner Kitchen and blog of the same name, focuses on the concept in a truly original way.

An incredibly challenging phase in her life brought her to Science of Mind.  Laurel found this work to be powerful, uplifting, and life-altering.  The practice of Spiritual Mind treatment is the most important tool she uses to manifest change, and help clients remember the truth of who they really are.  This work has opened many doors to personal healing, which in turn heals the collective.  Her belief is that this is the most important work one can do for themselves in their lifetime.

Laurel is available for coaching, lectures, and speaking engagements, and is excited to be making this teaching available for other coaches.  She can be reached at
