In this seminar, through our conversation and gentle inquiry, we explore the essential principles inherent in walking this earth in the way of the healer. Not only those in the health professions are called to this ancient way, in fact, unfortunately, many are not. Each of us, by intention and choice, can be a source for healing. We can develop in ourselves the capacity to accompany people on the healing journey – and all people are on that journey towards wholeness - regardless of the starting point, the tools used, or the outcome achieved.
