WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:

The purpose of this webinar is to identify the origin of internal conflict; to explore its goals, its physical symptoms and its emotional expressions; and to apply its remedy which is Forgiveness.

Conflict is defined here as any thought that separates you from someone else; any thought which seeks to harm in any way and to any degree.

Forgiveness is the choice to free ourselves from the painful past; it is the decision to stop suffering, to heal the soul and the heart. Forgiveness changes our perception of the world, of others and oneself. Forgiveness is the path that leads to peace.

This webinar will be presented in both English and Spanish.

PRESENTER BIOGRAPHY:

Dr. Zaidy De Franco is a doctor of dentistry and the Executive Director of CECURA Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic. As a Speaker, Therapist and Soul´s companion, Zaidy addresses Forgiveness and Attitudinal Healing as a path of self-realization. She teaches and demonstrates a new mindset that implies a profound change in our perception of the world, others and ourselves, with the aim of living our lives in fullness and inner peace.

Zaidy Di Franco enjoys and loves life by becoming a living example that it is possible to "love and forgive others, through learning to love and forgive ourselves."

March: The Eternal Quest For Happiness

with Aeeshah and Kokomon Clottey of AHC Oakland, USA

Click Here To Request A Recording >>


WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:

We humans are like a cat looking for its tail, going around and around in circles hoping to find what it already has. The key to happiness is rooted in this wisdom: “The essence of our being is love.” If we look at life through the lens of love, we inevitably find happiness. Love connects us with one another in ways that we could never imagine, especially with the Earth community, with all of life — four-legged, two-legged, winged, and fish in the ocean.

As human beings, our task is to learn that happiness is our inheritance and our original blessing. We are what we’re seeking!

This is a workshop on self-introspection and self-help in which we share personal stories and challenge participants to accept the truth that we are love. This concept of love is a natural law revealing that Mother/Father God is love, and that Spirit is in the center of everything. The practice of awareness is an active process requiring us to be centered in hope. Hope inspires and activates forgiveness as a key to happiness. Happiness is love in action. When we understand the importance of happiness and incorporate happiness in our daily lives, this opens a path to inner peace.

June: Trusting Inner Wisdom and Finding Your Own Answers

els thissenTrusting Inner Wisdom and Finding Your Own Answers
with Els Thissen and Emilia van Leent of Stichting Centrum, The Netherlands

Click Here To Register >>

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:

Finding your own answers is the most clever thing you can do, since you keep yourself company all the time and can be fully trusted. For example, if you want to know if you like strawberries, it is wise to taste them yourself and decide if you do, rather than depending on what someone else tells you about how strawberries taste. In this same way you can "taste" your life right now and decide what is most suitable and most helpful for you at this time. It is okay to trust yourself completely, and, if needs be, to choose again.

PRESENTER BIOGRAPHIES:

Els Thissen (1955) began her career as a police officer, then graduated from law school and studied at an academy of art. Ever since an early age she asked herself, "How can I be happy?" None of her studies, including the art academy and practicing Reiki, could satisfy her in this regard. Then she read "A Course In Miracles" and was introduced to Attitudinal Healing, which changed her life. Both provided her with the answers she was looking for. "Inside I discovered a silence that was unperturbed, not in the sense of indifference, but noticeable in a gentle, constant, compassionate presence." For more than 20 years Els has been giving trainings and workshops on ACIM, Attitudinal Healing, and family-constellations, both nationally and internationally.

Emilia van Leent (1963) started her career as a teacher, then moved on to psychiatric nursing, which she has now practiced for nearly 30 years. Both ACIM and Attitudinal Healing were a life-saver for her (quite literally) and she uses the profound truth of both in the treatment she offers her clients. Two premises are paramount for her, both in her own life and her career: "Change is possible and not a necessity," and "Everyone knows their own answers." For Emilia, the Attitudinal Healing Principle "We can choose and direct ourselves to be peaceful inside regardless of what is happening outside" gained in depth and became even more helpful when she added: "…regardless of what is happening outside or inside."

July: Supporting Children During the Mourning Process

WEBINAR DESCRIPTION:

“Loss and Trauma in children is perhaps the most avoided, ignored, belittled, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering.”

The first thing we learned, and maybe the most important one, is that children find in the Attitudinal Healing Groups a safe place where they can share their stories, their feelings and most of all, their fears. When a child in this situation listens to other stories they feel comfortable to share their own; through the principles of Attitudinal Healing they learn that whatever feeling or memory they share, there will be no judgment nor criticism. This way in their minds they all become one. (The children that belonged to the first group in 1994 are all adults and successful in their lives, and they all remain united in a kind of brotherhood.)

PRESENTER BIOGRAPHIES:

Carlos Aguirre, M.D. is a psychiatrist with a Masters degree in Family Therapy and in Child Psychiatry.  He is a member of the Mexico Board of Psychiatry, and also holds a specialty in Holistic Medicine (Homeopathy). He has dedicated his professional life to private practice and lecturing, and has been especially interested in training non-professional people with the intention to expand psychological and spiritual knowledge to those who are interested in their personal growth.

In 1994 Dr. Aguirre and his wife Lucero, together with professional and nonprofessional persons, founded the Attitudinal Healing Center of Guadalajara, Mexico (CECURAGUADALAJARA). Through the work of the Center, he has integrated the practical concepts of consciousness development into his private practice in Family and Marriage Therapy and facilitating self-help groups.

Lucero Aguirre is originally a teacher in bi-lingual education and has a Masters degree in Psychology. She is also certified in Thanatology (the scientific study of death). Professionally she has always been oriented to the innovation of teaching techniques and service to others.

In 1994 Lucero, together with her husband Dr. Carlos Aguirre, founded the Attitudinal Healing Center in Guadalajara, Mexico, where she has been dedicated to facilitating self-help groups especially with people in life crisis. Lucero personally accompanies individuals and families through traumatic and complicated mourning. She frequently gives lectures and workshops on the grieving processes, forgiveness and spiritual development. She has also expanded Attitudinal Healing into other institutions including hospitals, schools and prisons.
