Our Commitment to Diversity
Healing Journeys is committed to diversity and pledges to include, welcome, and support all individuals of any race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, age, socioeconomic background, religion, sexual orientation, and disability.

Purpose
The purpose of this program is to educate, inspire, connect, and celebrate all whose lives have been touched by cancer or any life-altering condition.

Cancer, or any life-altering illness, can be viewed as both a curse and a blessing. If viewed simply as a disease of the body, it is experienced only as a curse. When we view illness in the context of the whole person (body, mind, emotions, and spirit), we see its transformative potential as an awakening for the soul and spirit. Only then can we see it as a blessing and utilize its gifts.

“Thanks for creating this space where I can begin to come to terms with a cancer diagnosis. Thank you for the love…”

Who Should Attend

  • Women and men touched by cancer or any life-altering condition.
  • Healthcare providers.
  • People supporting friends or family with cancer or any life-altering condition.

Conference Objectives

  • Differentiate between curing the body and healing the person.
  • Explore illness as an awakening with transformative potential.
  • Convey how nutrition can help control cancer and promote wellness.
  • Rediscover and stimulate the healing capacity of the human spirit.
  • Facilitate healing from within as an essential component of total health.
