As I’m preparing to give this talk tonight I’m feeling grateful for the faculty and staff at UNC who have been willing to support Alternative and Complementary medicine education. Thanks particularly to Becky Coble and Susan Gaylord.
I’ll be presenting about shamanism and shamanic healing with one of my clients at the Principles/Practices of Alternative/Complementary Medicine class at the UNC Cancer Center. I’m delighted that we were asked to return this year. My client, who was in administration at UNC, had excellent results with chronic pain relief after seeing many doctors and practitioners and being told that nothing more could be done to help alleviate his pain. We were each invited to come and speak to this group last year through several synchronous connections.
I’m always happy to see some openness in larger institutions when it comes to spiritual healing work. As I outline in the talk, it’s becoming more common for shamanic practitioners to become credentialed to practice in hospitals in this country, and even the NIH has funded research into shamanic healing – with significant results for improving TMJ.
I expect to enjoy myself tonight and hope the class does too. I know we had a least one skeptic in the group last year who had an exciting power animal experience!
Wishing you a peaceful heart,
