May 2021 President Ezine: Illuminating a Path of Healing
“For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. Remember?”
This year marks the 25th anniversary of our organization! The theme for our conference this year speaks to that and how our organization and community of healers have illuminated a path of healing for nearly three decades. During that time, our members have led the way in integration of Healing Touch into health and health care through community engagement, education, service, and research. We continue to lead with heart-centeredness, compassion, and unconditional love. We’ve held a light to illuminate a path of healing for ourselves and the world.
As a way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our organization, Healing Beyond Borders launched a social media campaign called Healing Touch 365 to broaden our reach and build community. If you follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, and LinkedIn), then you will have noticed an increase in posts and information shared. In fact, our social media presence has more than doubled in the past quarter, with increased followers and engagement across all of our platforms! I encourage you to follow us, share our posts, and create your own.
This digital work is supported by a generous gift of $5,000 from Anne and Larry Day. You may recall that we are using their gift as the basis for a challenge grant to raise matching funds to support our push for digital media and outreach. To date, we have matched roughly a third of our goal. I hope you will join me in donating to Healing Beyond Borders and be part of this challenge grant. It can be as simple as a $25 donation!
We hope this increased outreach and digital presence will not only expand our membership, but also interest in our 25th anniversary conference this year. Last week, you received a preliminary list of speakers including Joan Halifax, Belleruth Naparstek, Emily and Vasia Markides, Lorrie Webb Grillo, Kellie Sauls, Ken Cohen, Grace Sesma, Annis Parker, and Gilah Yelen Hirsch. We will also be offering pre-conference events to include Course 2 and Course 3 HTI Healing Touch Certificate Program classes, and a Course 1 technique review. I’m so looking forward to gathering safely with you all in Colorado in September. Reserve your hotel room now! More information will be coming soon about conference registration.
Finally, if you’re a member, don’t forget to register for the free online media workshops I will be hosting for members during the month of June. Slots will be limited and offered only to members on a first-come basis. More information regarding dates and registration can be found by logging into the member’s area of the Healing Beyond Borders website.
