The Healer Within, Shamanic Breathwork™
at the Gateway Medical Conference
April 17 - 18, 2013, St. Louis Union Station Hotel
The majority of ancient healing traditions believe that healing begins with a connection to a higher power, spirit or collective unconscious. Our Western medical view is biophysical and often eliminates this part of the healing process. This workshop will help you access the higher healing power and transform the way you take care of yourself and others. Shamanism honors and blends the timeless wisdom of ancient traditions with new methods of healing, creating a bridge for body, mind, heart and spirit. At this workshop you will find healing as you become centered and connected through shamanic journey and breathwork, imaging and meditation.
This CME activity will serve to increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance that a physician uses to provide services for patients.
Workshop leaders, Nita Gage and Molly Roberts, will help you through the transpersonal experience to discover how to access the full potential of your inner healing and to increase your effectiveness and joy of practice, work and caring for others. Nita Gage co-created Healer Within retreats with the beloved Lee Lipsenthal, MD. Both Nita and Molly practiced Shamanic Breathwork™ with Dr. Lipsenthal for many years before his death in 2011.
Put aside your "left-brain" learning and discover how to access inner healing through imagery, Shamanic Breathwork™ and meditation to increase your effectiveness and joy of practice, work and caring for others. You will also create your own mission and vision statements to move forward in your life in a way that serves you, your family, and those that you are caring for. Treat yourself to this transformational experience!
