Objective: To evaluate the effectiveness of a body-mind-spirit workshop in the enhancement of holistic well-being among college students. The workshop lasted for 2 days. Apart from preparing participants to cope with negative events, the workshops aimed at enhancing holistic well-being through promoting inner strength, mindfulness, love, and a sense of forgiveness.

Methods: Participants of the workshop were Hong Kong college students (n=42, 60% were females). A pre-and post-test comparison group design was adopted. A standardized inventory on holistic well-being was used as an outcome measure to evaluate the effectiveness of the workshop.

Results: Significant enhancement in equanimity (nonattachment, mindfulness, general vitality, spiritual self-care)[F(1,91)=15.51~21.64, P<0.001], and reduction of emotional affliction (emotional vulnerability, irritability, spiritual disorientation) were demonstrated [F(1,91)=4.49~38.64, P<0.05,001].

Conclusion: The integrative body-mind-spirit workshop is effective in promoting holistic well-being among college students who are at the stage of emerging adulthood. With holistic well-being being enhanced, greater resilience in coping with future life stress will be expected.
