More than ever before in history, humans are faced with an overwhelming amount of stress.  This leads to debilitating illnesses, addictions, and depression. We need all the help we can get. Jed Diamond suggests that help can be found through energy healing, “[N]o matter how we got sick, no matter what the problem is, if you can get at the energetic under story and be able to heal things at the energetic level, then, in a sense, you also heal all the chemical actions up here. But, if you’re only dealing with the top stories you’re not dealing at the roots.

Healing and Repairing Relationship, An Ongoing Process with Susan Campbell, Ph.D.

Dr. Campbell offers practical advice for repairing our love relationships while also healing our inner wounds. We learn methods for turning common relationship conflicts into opportunities to foster love, trust, and intimacy. She suggests making an agreement with your partner to take a “time-out” when you sense a trigger, using those moments to feel what is going on in your body and discover old wounds that have yet to heal.

Surrender Is The Doorway with Judith Orloff, M.D.

When physician Judith Orloff is asked what’s the most important factor in health and recovering from illness, her answer is surrender. It’s her experience that surrender must be the engine that drives all choices about healing. However, it must be pointed out that surrender, in her definition, doesn’t mean giving in or giving up. “Surrender is the ability to flow with life and accept what is rather than pushing and fighting and struggling with life all the time. It’s about learning to sense with your intuition… also surrender is saying no to what isn’t working, toxic people, situations that aren’t right…

Beyond Humans, Widening Our Circle Of Friends with Priscilla Stuckey, Ph.D.

Stuckey begins this conversation by telling three stories — how an eagle, a bougainvillea bush, and the birch tree of her childhood all communicated with her in some way. We think we are alone, but Stuckey points out “we are deeply connected with all others with whom we share our lives.” She encourages us to be aware of our connection with all the life that surrounds us, even in cities.

True Transformation Is An Inside Job with Isha Judd

We are often trapped in the matrix of our intellect telling ourselves that we are victims of circumstances: it’s the economy, it’s my upbringing, it’s my job, my co-workers. Judd says, “[T]his moment is the only moment you can change and this moment defines your future moments. So when I focus on praise, love, gratitude, and giving . . . I create more of that.  If you are focusing on what is wrong, what is missing, or what’s in lack, it is inevitable that you keep creating that.” She reminds us to be vigilant in choosing love over fear as we create
