What Will I Learn?
  • We have all heard that we are comprised of body mind and spirit. Many have heard that our mind is more powerful than our body and our spirit more powerful than our mind. What does that mean and how in the world would we apply that into our life? The objective of the course is help individuals not only understand the significance that we are body mind & spirit, but to help anyone, regardless of their beliefs, implement this reality into their life to maximize immunity, optimize wellbeing & enjoy life to the fullest.
  • Benefits:
  • Minimize: Stress, Anxiety, Conflicts, Colds, Risk of Illnesses
  • Maximize: Immunity, Inner Power, Longevity, Productivity
  • Spiritual: More joy, love, happiness, sense of purpose
  • The net cost of the course is less than zero. Students may make a monetary profit by saving hundreds & even thousands of dollars every year as we learn how to distinguish between the foods, supplements and therapies that benefit us and those that don't.
  • However, the greatest benefit can not be measured by time or money. Numerous people have testified that the course is the best thing they have ever done. The critical point to optimize well being is lifting our spiritual state, and that is the only thing we can take with us when we go. Now that is worth more than all the money in the world.

A highly effective educational approach to optimize immunity, super charge inner power and remove any hidden obstacles preventing us from living our dreams. Proven to dramatically lower the risk of developing common illness, discover why so many describe the Voyage to Betterment as the best thing that ever happened to them. Designed with critical point analysis to focus on the critical elements without fluff, this 8 hour class has more value than many 4 year University health educations, yet can be done in a day.

Originally a 16 hour online course, it has been reworked and condensed to 8 hours of mainly video so that students can view it all in one day if they wish. There is no need for strenuous work either. Students benefit simply by viewing videos and being part of the field.

This Wellness Class has evolved over 17 years at a cost exceeding a half million dollars.

Before & after blood & stress tests show the work effective at optimizing well being & dramatically reducing stress & illness.

This Online Course is updated & includes Andrew's recent collaboration with a woman who is now 95 & remains sharp as a whip. The understanding and application of her discovery of a hidden order of the Universe in Nutrition alone, will allow students taking this course to be 30 years ahead of the latest and greatest in Nutrition. The value of her work did not elude David R Hawkins MD.

Completing the Wellness Class With a Coach

If completing the online wellness class with a Voyage to Betterment Coach, then students are best to follow the curriculum presented by the coaches and complete the same lectures in the same order as the team. Individuals with extra time on their hands wish to view and listen to all the class lectures in advance and then review them a 2nd time, prior to each team group meeting. If part of a team, it is not recommended that individuals begin the workbook exercises until everyone on the team begins. It is best for all team members to begin the Workbook exercises on the same day as all the other team mates as per the guidance of the coach.

Completing the Wellness Class Without Coaching or Assistance

This video, was mainly intended to be of benefit to those who are completing this class, as a Do It Yourself Wellness Class, on their own, without coaching or assistance. Most students will find it very quick and easy to view most if not all of the content. Some students may experience some time delays in downloading or viewing certain lessons. Delays depend on the device used, the brand of device used, the browser and their local internet capacities. If students experience delays, try a different browser or try a better internet connect. Internet download speeds vary by the capacity of the system, the time of day, and the number of people connected to the systems in their home, cafe and city. Nonetheless even with delays, the evolution of this online class, will save students time as there is no need to physically attend a class.

I chose the Udemy platform to deliver this content, as their highly sophisticated platform allows nearly anyone anywhere in the world to take this class and view all the lessons online. This Udemy system also allows students to view the lectures at their own pace. The system will remember where the student left off and get them started on the next lesson, the next time they log in. Udemy recommends developing very short lesson to cater to students desires to view content quickly and societies dramatic deterioration to attention spans and ability to concentrate for more than a few minutes.

Although I chose Udemy, in part, to give students the freedom to, learn in the fashion common today to the masses, I would recommend students view all the easy to do online classes as quickly as possible. Get through it all once. Critical points were delivered and repeated in a certain order to allow the students to benefit simply by sitting back and viewing or listening to the lessons. Hence, for students that are interested in maximizing the benefit received from the body of this work, I recommend students get their Ninja on, and get through the classes as quickly as possible. Once students finish viewing the content the will be ready to really apply the work into their life by doing the homework, which is a 10 minute daily contemplative practice for 90 days.

I was told my eczema was incurable. I cured it. I was told my migraines that were so severe I often went blind were incurable. I cured them. My back pain was so acute it felt like someone stabbed me in the back with a sharp knife and I spent a couple weeks just lying on the floor. I was told my degenerative back disease was just going to get worse. I haven't had back pain in years either. Progressively I learned how to heal so many more conditions and injuries that often seemed to be insurmountable. There is nothing special about me and what I did, with rare exception anyone can do. These are potentials that exist. I can provide the road map but it is up to each individual to do the work and insert their effort, intention and spirit into i.

The Voyage to Betterment film played to general viewing audiences. In the same way, the Voyage to Betterment Unprogram for Wellness Class was designed to provide benefits to all regardless of ones, beliefs, food and lifestyle preferences. In order to experience benefits it is instrumental that students take full responsibility for their own level of health and well being and not blame medical doctors, trainers, educators or anyone else for anything. By taking this class participants confirm that they will take full responsibility for their own level of health and happiness and not blame, sue, disparage or harass anyone associated with this class for any reason. If individuals are unwilling to take full responsibility for everything in their life they should forgo this work.

The material in this class is for informational and educational purposes only.

When the Voyage to Betterment film was released some submitted testimonials that they have viewed the film over a dozen times and received something new and valuable with each view. This wellness class was designed in the same way so that students can revert back to lectures into perpetuity. The work was designed to grow with the students, so most will receive additional insights with each review.

When it comes to development of body mind and spirit no one can do the work for us. We all have to do it ourselves. However it is very helpful to have someone show us the straightest and easiest path. That is the value of a coach, teacher or mentor, yet few are skilled in critical point analysis. For those who are interested I have done my best to lay out all the work in a series of lectures and homework. Upon completion of the class, for continuous improvement and ongoing coaching, students simply can revert back to the lectures for review and continue to do the daily ten minute morning practice that comprises the homework.

Test your sleep with the free Azumio Sleep Time App. This App is not anywhere near as accurate as the Azumio HRV Stress Check App, however it can provide some useful information at times.

If you use an alarm to wake up you can immediately begin to use this App to have more energy in the day. This App wakes you up when you're in light sleep as opposed to deep sleep. If we are jolted up by an alarm in deep sleep we are more likely to remain groggy and tired throughout the day. If we set the alarm for 7:30 am, it will pick the time from 7:00 am and on when we are in light sleep. In this way we wake up earlier and feel better rested. Just the simple use of this App will give most people the extra time they need in the day to complete Wellness Class homework, which consists of a daily 10 minute Mind & Spirit contemplative practice best done first thing in the morning upon waking.

From the lecture above, we can see that the Voyage To Betterment film DVD on its own had so many reported benefits that it could be likened to a Free Health Care System in a box. Even though it cost me years of effort and hundreds of thousands of dollars out of my own pocket to pay the expenses and for all the staff to create and market the film, some people expressed anger that we had the audacity to charge $20 for a DVD for something that can benefit so many people. In 2010 DVD sales plunged as free movies became widely available online for free. We did sell some DVD's but the cost to market each DVD was ten time higher than any sales received. So it would cost me about $200 in staffing, expenses and marketing costs to sell a $20 DVD. It was cheaper to give them away for free. So here is a video of our efforts to give away a Free Health Care System in a box.

Self Assessment
1 Lecture 00:00

It is very important to complete this 5 page self assessment now before viewing any lectures and beginning this wellness education. In this way we can document a baseline. Print this VTB Self Assessment PDF file in 3 holed paper and insert it into the Student Guide that follows in a subsequent lecture.


Many of the improvements happen progressively over time. If we do not take the time to take a Before Assessment and then monitor improvement by taking periodic after assessments we may not notice all the improvements. This is very useful motivator for students to continue to continuously improve. By documenting improvements with before and after self assessment all students will help all future students.


For example, if in due course we find that the first 100 people that had a common condition such as high blood pressure, adopt this work into their life, and after 90 days 95, no longer had high blood pressure, then we will have just documented that this educational approach was the most effective plan ever created to eliminate high blood pressure naturally.


Hence although the Before and After Self Assessments are anonymous and we will never use names we encourage students to share their results and all their improvements with us and we will use it in aggregate to help others.


Please seek the advice of your Medical or Naturopathic physician prior to making any changes to medication or lifestyle.

This is Part 1 of the Voyage to Betterment film chapter on Nutrition. Nutrition is introduced in the film as Principal Element Number 1. Viewers will see that the Voyage to Betterment Group was challenged to eat like a Primate, with at least 95% plant foods for a month. This is often such a major leap from a traditional way of eating that the group and viewers are exposed to some basic lessons on the benefits of eating this way.

Student Guide
1 Lecture 00:00

Please note the VTB Wellness Class Student Guide (VTB Workbook) described below is being replaced by the Samyana Course in Vitality Manual - A Lesson A Day for 90 Days Keeps the Doctor Away. The Course in Vitality is now available as Lesson 70 at the end of the online class. It is best to skip this student guide and simply download, print and complete the Samyana Course in Vitality when students get to Lesson 70.

VTB Wellness Class Student Guide:

Go out and purchase a 1" or 1.5" binder if you do not already have one then print this PDF File of the VTB Student Guide & Workbook on 3 holed paper and insert it into the binder. Part of the Workbook, is for taking notes, which is way, way better to do old school with pen and paper, rather than use an optional tablet, laptop or smartphone.

The Student Guide and Workbook is broken down into two parts. Part 1 is a Text Summary of the critical points and insights of the entire Voyage to Betterment body of work and all the instructions needed to complete the homework. Providing this overview in written form early in this online course provides students a road map so they can begin to make the lifestyle changes they wish to and begin to adopt the work into their life.

Part 2 is the Workbook that contains the 3 part ten minute per day homework exercises that helps us adopt the Mind & Spirit essence of the work into our lives and hence has the greatest value. A viewing of the Voyage to Betterment film together with this VTB Student Guide & Workbook is all that is needed to adopt the work into one's life.

There is only so much one can say in a 2 hour movie. All the Lectures associated with this online class that follow, including the Ten Principle Elements for Wellbeing audio book, the Cooking Class Workshop Video Lectures, and the Body Mind and Spirit Live Workshops, elaborate on the critical points revealed in the film and Student Guide and were designed to answer all the frequently asked questions. The lectures that follow the Student Guide and Workbook do not require any effort. Students can simply sit back and listen to the audio book and view the video lectures. In this way students familiarize themselves with the essence of the work, effortlessly.

There is mention in the guide of Angus Buchan in the film Faith like Potatoes. A short video clip of Buchan is included in the supplementary material of this lecture.

This is an overview and introduction to the lectures in the Exercise Workshop

Preview 04:53

RANGE OF MOTION EXERCISES

These are the 30 Range of Motion exercises demonstrated by Andrew, Bree and Dave in the morning session of the live workshop. These are the main range of motion exercises that would help provide overall physical balance and stability. In the live workshops, we showed the value of measuring improvement. An individual can simply rate themselves on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being worst and 10 being ideal range of motion. The ideal range of motion is demonstrated in the photos of this document. We work on the exercises that we worst at. If we are already at a range of motion of ten there is little need to do those exercise regularly. Instead we work on the exercises that we are worst at. Progressively it will improve and help correct imbalances. Simply select ten exercises from the 30 provided and do them everyday for a week. The following week select a new set of exercises and do them for a week. For continuous improvement, keep rotating the exercises in this fashion with focus on the ones we are worst at.

A 6 month progress table to record improvements in range of motion is included in the supplementary section of this lecture. Dave, in Voyage to Betterment, experienced an incredible physical transformation in only 30 days. Seven years later he continues to continuously improve and is committed to Cross Fit training. He found setting goals and keeping a record of improvement instrumental in ensuring he continues to improve. For those who wish to keep ongoing measurements, simply print the table and keep a record for your own use.

FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SYSTEMS

In conjunction with Range of Motion exercises we strongly recommend that all participants contact a local physiotherapist that is specifically trained in FMS "Functional Movement Systems". Physiotherapists trained in FMS, can provide a simple 5 minute physical assessment test, that will document, areas in the body that we are compensating for. In this way it makes weaknesses stand out. They will then provide some range of motion exercises specifically customized to suit a participants specific needs. Then after a couple months of doing these simple exercises the physiotherapist will take another test, document improvement, then provide new exercises to help continuously improve. The Functional Movement System is a genius type of system designed to help us continuously improve and reverse so many injuries that we previously thought were insurmountable. Please see the video, in this lecture for a 2 minute summary of Functional Movement Systems.

It is best to let go the belief that our bodies will break down because of sports or getting old.

The Functional Movement System may be the best thing ever created to help any individuals prevent or repair any injuries. This is not only for athletes. I strongly recommend that everyone take a functional movement screen that will immediately point out weaknesses that one day will likely create undesirable aches and pains.

We live in an era where surgery is often willingly accepted as a first or second choice instead of a last resort. Anyone that has any pain with backs, necks, knees, hips or any other part of the body make the Functional Movement System the first choice. It is also time and cost efficient. The pain and cost of a $50,00 hip surgery may be completely replaced by a few hundred bucks in functional movement screens from a physiotherapist.

The video shows the basic Functional Movement Screen. After the client takes this simple test, that may cost $40 or so, the results are input into the system and the client will receive a simple exercise routine customized to their exact needs. All clients have to do is do the 10 or 15 minutes of exercises Monday through Friday and in due course they will experience dramatic results. After a few weeks or few months a client can go back fro another screen which will show the improvement and provide the exercises for the next few months. This is probably the most effective and cheapest method ever developed for continuous physical improvement.

Even for those who have a regular athletic, exercise or Yoga practice, combining it with periodic functional movement screens will help take anyone to a whole new level of awesomeness.

At Your Service

Andrew Facca began mentoring in childhood. An innate leader and athlete he was selected by his peers to captain, train & player coach dozens of soccer & basketball teams. An intuitive capacity to envision complex business plans in a flash emerged in his teens and led to early success & the creation of several businesses with hundreds of employees.

With early success also came chronic back pain, migraines, health issues, severed relationships, heart ache and depression. Then after hitting rock bottom he was lifted by Amazing Grace to a state of awe and profound gratitude free of suffering. Progressively he healed or improved everything. With an immense compassion for all those who have suffered as he did he gave up business and the pursuit of success to do his best to help others in need. This led him to the door of world renowned healers, doctors & scientists including David R Hawkins MD. In the process, the intuitive capacity in business further evolved into heightened states of clairsentience and claircognizance where it often became possible to know the underlying hidden contributors to nearly anyone's illness or issue.

Andrew is a film producer, author, speaker and a spiritual healer. He is the creator of the Voyage to Betterment, The Body Mind Spirit Challenge and Samyana Spiritual Healing. Samyana is sanskrit for Voyaging Together. The common theme of the work is to help others experience that we are not helpless victims to thousands of diseases, injury or heart ache. Instead there is a power deep inside each of us, that can prevent, heal, reverse or improve nearly anything. The work has been featured in theatres, Colleges, yoga studios, churches, magazines, newspapers, radio and TV, including the CBC, CTV, CTS & City TV Breakfast. He also found it possible to get answers to any questions in life by sitting on a Rock in Sedona, so he does a lot of that too.
