These calls were originally created to provide an opportunity to deal with the spiritual/emotional component of chronic illness, something that deserves as much attention as the physical component, and is the aspect that gives a person the most power in their healing journey. We were fortunate to also have a number of guest speakers (physicians, nutritionists, therapist) who generously shared their knowledge and wisdom with our community.
A few examples of topics: Who Am I?, Anger, Empowerment, Loss of Identity, Success Stories, Quieting the Mind, Dealing with Overwhelm, Grief, Accessing Joy, Care-giver Support, Depression, Guilt, Anxiety, Diet, Treatments.
