“Our souls are connected to spirit the same way waves are connected to the ocean”
- Peter Amato
meet Peter Amato
With a Master’s Degree in Transpersonal Psychology and a Doctoral Degree in Mind-Body Medicine, Peter’s work goes beyond traditional health and wellness body therapies.
Peter Amato's life has been one of transformation, growth and change. He has studied with Deepak Chopra, Andrew Weil, and Zen master and Nobel Peace prize nominee, Thich Nhat Hanh.
Dr. Amato’s initial career operating a family chain of automotive companies created an astute business acumen and subsequent wealth at an early age. The material perks were not ultimately sustaining and Peter’s desire to answer life’s bigger questions led him to study with some of the biggest names in the conscious movement.
Peter’s Life Passion
Interpreting, living and integrating this spiritual realm into daily life continues to be Peter’s strongest and most enduring passion. He is passionate about sharing his life’s research with those in stage two recovery, living life beyond addiction.
Peter has a Masters Degree in Transpersonal Psychology from Saybrook University where he earned a Doctoral Degree in Mind-Body Medicine. He wrote the best selling book for those in recovery titled “Soul Silence: A Unique Approach to Mastering the 11th Step”

Peter was co-founder and past chair of the National Integrative Medicine Council and has worked closely with the American Cancer Society and the Center for Disease Control.
Peter is an international lecturer who travels extensively. For nearly two decades Peter has worked as a transformational consultant with organizations and groups in four key areas: education, healthcare, recovery and addiction and corporate.

Harmony Mountain Institute
The Harmony Mountain Institute was thoughtfully designed to offer the peace and tranquility needed for individuals to leave their daily concerns behind and focus on their own inner work through transformative care, mediation, yoga, bodywork and deep discussion.
Dr. Amato strives to help his private clients, readers and retreat-goers fully understand their mind-body connection, while encouraging them to embrace the spiritual dimension in their everyday life.
By providing the tools to help individuals move beyond their comfort zones in order to achieve deep personal transformation, this transformation requires a Zen and serene environment, away from the chaos of everyday life.
