Food & Spirituality: Eating for Color and Vibration

Deanna Minich,
Port Orchard, WA
Session 3.

Food is fuel for the body and nourishment for the soul. It connects to the entire spectrum of one’s being. What you eat, how you eat, and when you eat can reflect deeper meaning and actions in your life. This colorful and creative workshop will allow you to experience how your food choices and eating behaviors impact your 7-part chakra (psychoneuroendocrine) system. With a variety of activities, we will journey through the many facets of food, from physical to energetic, moving through the subtle connections food has with emotions, thoughts, love, truth, intuition, and spirituality.

Healer, Heal Thyself

Nedra Blietz,
West Salem, WI.
Session 4.

The belief systems of a healer are very important. In this workshop, we will check subconscious beliefs around instant healings, belief blocks for healers, programs around giving and receiving love, seeing truth, and feeling protected. We will also look at programs of taking on other peoples’ energies and sacrificing yourself for others. If you are a healer of any type or someone who is affected by other peoples’ energies, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to clear out some of these programs. It is possible to live without being affected by other peoples’ energies. Join ThetaHealing® Certificate of Science and Purpose Coach Nedra Blietz, to learn more!

After 20 years in office and hotel management, working paycheck to paycheck, feeling stressed out and often angry, I was ready for change. When my youngest child headed off to college, I devoted my time to becoming a trained yoga instructor and meditation facilitator. I was fascinated with the chakras and soon began to study healing crystals and other forms of healing energy. The more courses I took, the more I realized how to use these tools to change how I was feeling, my perception of the world and make big changes in my life. Of all the healing modalities I studied, I found that ThetaHealing® created the most powerful and significant shifts in my life. Through the ThetaHealing technique, I no longer need to “control” things, it has helped me eliminate anger and many limiting belief patterns from my life. Now, I am blessed to travel around the country and the world doing what I love which is teaching others how to bring healing into their lives and create a life that aligns with their true self and divine purpose.

Spirituality and Nutrition

Shawngela Pierce,
Sierra Vista, AZ.
Session 4.

It doesn’t take much to realize that in our society there is a tremendous amount of confusion related to nutrition. Most people approach nutrition from a scientific perspective, however, despite knowing that we are spiritual beings in a physical body, many have not taken the leap to explore nutrition from a spiritual perspective. Many have not thought to re-align themselves with their spiritual essence in order to follow the path of nutrition that is uniquely suited for them. In this workshop, we will explore both experientially and through lecture spirituality and nutrition.

Shawngela Pierce is an author and life coach, with a master’s degree in education and over 3-years of post-masters education in naturopathic medicine. She has also studied the art of yoga and qigong for over 10-years.

Shawngela helps those who seek heal through the power of meditation, spiritual guidance and subconscious training – all under the umbrella of the law of attraction. Shawngela’s work includes a qigong dvd, titled Qigong Meditation; and two published books – Healing and the Law of Attraction and Awakening to the Healing Powers Within. Her latest book, titled Nutrition and the Law of Attraction, shines a new light on how we view nutrition and is expected to be released in November 2019.

Vocal Toning: Using Your Voice For Healing and Transformation

Cathleen Gempeler,
Apple Valley, MN.
Session 4.

Vocal toning is vibrational medicine. Each of us has been given an extraordinary gift: the voice. The voice holds all of our wounds, pain and hurts and when we use this gift of the voice to release hurts and emotions, we heal from within using our own innate and powerful voice. Toning is defined as the vocal sounding of the breath. Vocal toning harmonizes and releases any blocked emotional memory patterns.

Cathleen Gempeler is a board certified music therapist in private practice. She is the owner of MUSIC FOR HEALING LLC in Apple Valley, MN. Cathleen has 25 years of music therapy experience working with people of all ages and levels of ability. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin in Eau Claire with a Bachelor of Music in Music Therapy, she uses vocal toning/sound healing daily and has found that this practice opens the mind and the heart and it keeps one healthy–physically, emotionally, spiritually because it cleanses our electromagnetic field and harmonizes patterns. She bases her vocal toning practice on the pioneering work of Don G. Campbell and Laurel Elizabeth Keyes. They both left a legacy of vocal toning for all of us. Vocal toning is calming and brings you into increased awareness. Cathleen has presented at St. Francis Regional Medical Center, Mt. Olivet Rolling Acres, and Rotary groups.

Spiritual Anatomy for Healers

Antoinette Caruso,
Ellsworth, ME.
Session 3.

Spiritual anatomy reveals the root cause of pain in clients that exhibit stress, anxiety, and physical pain. Emotional, mental, and spiritual issues can emerge in the body if not addressed early. By identifying the initiating factor, the practitioners can help clients heal more efficiently. The practitioner will learn the areas of the body and feel of subtle energies there that target specific emotional issues.

Antoinette realized from an early age that we are physical beings living in a metaphysical world. Because social and emotional issues, and even past life issues can impact our health and well-being, Antoinette addresses the whole person in her private practice. She is a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner, Reiki Master/Teacher, psychic and spiritual counselor who runs a private practice in Ellsworth, Maine. She’s taught alternative healing methods to the staff at Richard E. Laube Cancer Center in Kittanning Pa, and hosted the radio show “Complete Health Conversations” on WWCH Radio in Clarion PA. Today she consults with client nationwide.

Nell Morningstar has been an avid journaler for over 50 years, and a Tarot student/reader/teacher also for over 50 years. She says it has been fun to integrate these two passions and find ways in which they deepen and enliven each other.
