Patrick J. Burns | Chief Operating Officer (COO)

Unlocking The Mind is a process to “Heal The Mind First” in healing and wellness, by identifying emotional events that one may experience and other ways of “seeing” the events to bring Peace. Often these “perspectives” are shared with family, friends and coworkers who may be dealing with an emotional event, bringing them to Peace. In this Peace, the body can heal and remain well.

Patrick is the General Manager of our “Healing Hotel”, Crystal Bay located in Saint Petersburg, Florida and coordinates all additional healing services, beyond our online services. Patrick joined us from the “substance abuse” industry as he found clients were getting further in the Unlocking The Mind program than months of traditional treatment.

Patrick is literally an “addiction expert” and we look forward to the launch of Unlocking The Mind’s Addiction Program in the Spring of 2020. Click HERE to hear his own experiences with Unlocking The Mind.
