    I just listened to Dr. Larry Dossey's interview yesterday, and was so impressed by his clear, concise and powerful presentation. It seems that HTPA has really "raised the bar" this year in terms of quality & depth of the interviews. Many thanks to Ramona, Renee & Dawn for all your work to recruit speakers of this caliber and set up such professional interviews! 

    For myself, the more healing work I do on myself and clients; the wider my reading on topics of energy healing, spirituality, quantum physics and inter-being with all of life; & the more time I spend quietly with nature, the more I feel a part of the universal consciousness or "One Mind." Dr. Dossey is right that this path is indeed one of deep healing on all levels. It brings such peace and feels so 'right' that sharing this gift with others becomes the only path to follow, at least for me. 

    Also, I read Dr. Bengston's book "Energy Cure" several months ago, & it is indeed intriguing and very convincing evidence for the efficacy of energy work, although his energy healing method is very different that that used in Healing Touch. I recommend the book highly.

    Comment to person who said that during healing work she connects with God but not with client - when doing healer prep, HTP teaches to "ground, center and attune" - that attunement is your connection to your client. The energy may come through you from a Higher Power, but it also then flows to the client through the connection you have established.

    Thanks so much for hosting this event.

    Dr. Dossey mentioned an additional reference we might all be interested in:

    Written by Dr. Bill Bengston, The Energy Cure:

        The Energy Cure: Unraveling the Mystery of Hands-On Healing

    Here's Dr. Dossey's review:

    “Great advances in science and medicine often occur at the edge of knowledge where things don’t fit in. Often the misfits are dismissed by conventional thinkers without a hearing. Where Dr. William Bengston’s work is concerned, this would be a profound mistake, because many precise scientific studies now confirm that healers and healing are real. Somewhere along the line, physicians forgot how to heal, and ‘healing’ became an embarrassment. Bengston is a harbinger of a marvelous trend: the return of healing to medicine.”
    —Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind

    Dr. Dossey was wonderful.  I have read 'Healing Words' and it was important to be reminded how he moved from physical medicine to energy healing.  I have heard many authors and healers talking recently of the importance of meditation in the coming times ahead.  It was good to hear this from Dr. Dossey. 

    I liked the reminder that doing the Hara line meditation each day strengthens our connection to the one mind and strengthens are connection and compassion to our clients and ourselves. 

    Hearing about all the research being done regarding long distance healing was amazing.  When we are living in our worlds inside each city and state, you don't realize what is taking place in other facilities.  The example of the brain MRI 'lighting up' when the healer was sending healing from a distance at random times was my favorite.  Made me smile and reinforces all we do as distance healers. 

    I work with a doctor who won't speak of what I do and from his actions probably doesn't believe in Healing Touch.  But I continue to greet him with a smile, give him eye contact and say 'good-bye' to him when I leave.  I think I will send him a prayer for healing whatever he may need also.  These thoughts came from when Dr. Dossey spoke about the fear medical personnel have about energy work.

    I enjoyed the reminder to go out into nature and just be.

    Keep our intentions for our clients loving, compassionate and for their greatest good.  Be deliberate about our work - such a profound statement.  "Be bold and do your work," Dr. Dossey said tonight.  Hmmmm! Where did I hear those words before - oh yes, Janet Mentgen.  Perhaps Janet was on the heavenly line tonight. 

    I have had the honor of receiving Divine Healing Hands from Master Zhi Gang Sha and Master Amritam from Boulder, CO.  Dr. and Master Sha talks about the need for meditation, that the soul, mind, heart, energy and matter are all one and that in soul healing, the healer is asking the soul of the client's organ or illness to know that love can heal and transform. 

    The one thing I would like to add is the importance for a Forgiveness Practice.  I think this is one of the most important parts of healing and releasing congestion and blockages in the energy field.  Intention, forgiveness, oneness, love, compassion, transformation and gratitude are all treasures that we bring to our clients when we agree to work in unity with them,

    This presentation has been most helpful!  I have been increasing my meditation time for the last 18 months because it felt so importantly connected to my healing work. For me it has been an awareness of moving into the present moment whether in prayer or with my clients. I wish I had asked earlier about the connection between the One Mind and being in the present moment.  I think The One Mind exists  only in the present moment which is now, and Now, the "Infinite in space and time". Dr. Dossey's comments regarding boundaries disappearing helped make sense of this experience as well. Thank you so much.

    I very much enjoyed listening to Dr Dossey tonight.  His talk gave me some clarity as to what I feel as a healer when I am doing HT sessions--a feeling of tapping into the one mind consciousness--becoming one with my client-- as sense of truly being present with another being with the intention of what is for the highest good.  It also sheds some light for me on saying--I often get as much out of a session as my client does. I provide distance healing in my practice and often find it is somewhat easier for myself to tap into the one mind consciousness when I provide the distance healing.

      Dr Dossey's words helped to validate what I am feeling.  Thank you Dr Dossey.
