Going to A Healing and Spirituality Conference

Monday, March 03, 2014

I am going to a healing and spirituality conference. I will earn continuing education credits because it is through the health system and hospice. The conference is about the Art of Self Compassion. The keynote speaker is Joyce Rupp, OSM a self-described spiritual midwife. She has degrees in English, religious education and transpersonal psychology. She will be speaking on how to balance the demands of care giving and still be consistently kind to oneself.

I am really excited about this. This is right up my alley since I work as a patient support tech and take care of my husband at home. My husband has a brain injury along with COPD and CHF. I took Reiki training and I use this in my daily life with my husband, my family and friends. I also took a class on sound and vibrational therapy. I am very interested in healing and alternative medicine.

    I hope it is fulfilling for you. I have been attending some spiritual learning retreats and the learning that goes on is amazing. Spiritual experience sometimes lies quiet and then a week after the meeting, you get a good zap that tells you what you learned. Wishing you lots of zaps!

    You are multi-talented and I'm certain give freely to all of your talents. The conference sounds perfect.

I also did quite a bit of study in non-traditional healing therapies. One reason I am so gung-ho about raw organic fruits, veggies, and greens, green juicing and green smoothies.

    All good! Bolstering your inner strength and calm is always a good thing. Even more so when you have so many others depending on you. Stay well. Hugs.
