Between these two forces there is a continuous running battle.

Integrative Healthcare Symposium 2009

On February 19th and 20th, 2009, I participated in the Integrative Healthcare Symposium in New York. The event is a gathering of influential and inspiring practitioners and healthcare professionals in integrative medicine and offers informational programs, updates on evidence-based research, and peer-to peer networking. On February 19th, I moderated a panel entitled “From Local to Global: Nursing Leadership for Change.” Panelists include: Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN; Barbara Sattler, PhD, RN; Dorothy Larkin, PhD, RN; Mary Jo Kreitzer, PhD, RN. On Saturday, February 20th, I taught a Ta Yoga class for the program. I’m honored to be a part of these landmark activities.

I’ve been answering more calls lately from people who are trying to make sense of our rapidly changing world. They are searching for refuge from the storm – something to hold on to. Some, who have never been unemployed in their adult lives, have lost their livelihoods.
