with Zaidy Di Franco of CECURA Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
View recording >
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.
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."
The Eternal Quest For Happiness
with Aeeshah and Kokomon Clottey of AHC Oakland, USA
View recording >
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.

Trusting Inner Wisdom and Finding Your Own Answers
with Els Thissen and Emilia van Leent of Stichting Centrum, The Netherlands
View recording >
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.
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."
Supporting Children In Mourning
with Carlos and Lucero Aguirre of CECURA Guadalajara, Mexico
View recording >
“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.)
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.

- Relationships - changing and renewing. “Where have they all gone?"
- Finishing ceremonies - laying memories to rest. “Can I really say Good-bye?"
- Anniversary reactions - what to expect. “Will the pain ever go away?"
- Beginning again - moving on. “How to live fully after loss.”

The Scientific Basis for Attitudinal Healing
with Don Goewey of ProAttitude, USA
View recording >
In this webinar, Don Joseph Goewey will present the scientific basis of Attitudinal Healing, summarizing the research in the last 20 years that has shown that our brain wires to our state of mind. A fearful mindset wires us for anxiety, depression and significant health risks. A peaceful mindset wires us for health, happiness and success.
This biological change is called neuroplasticity, which means a change of mind that changes our experience also changes our brain, but it is not limited to the brain. Human biology, from our brain structure right down to our chromosomes, is shaped by our mental state. Even more significant is that it takes relatively little time for a change in attitude to effect a positive change in our biology.
Don Joseph Goewey is founder and president of ProAttitude, a human performance firm focused on alleviating stress and fear and elevating people’s experience of work and life.
Prior to that, Don managed the department of psychiatry at Stanford Medical School, ran a regional emergency medical services system, and for twelve years headed the International Center of Attitudinal Healing.
He has worked with some of the most stressful situations on earth – with people facing terminal illness, parents struggling with the loss of a child, prisoners serving life sentences, and refugees of the genocidal war in Bosnia struggling with extreme post-traumatic stress.
Don spent six years directing an effort that integrated breakthroughs in neuropsychology with a practical spirituality called Attitudinal Healing. The result was the development of a transformational model (which has achieved outstanding results in high pressure organizations) that changes brain structure to extinguish fear and stress reactions and amplify the brain function that enables a human being to flourish.
Attitudinal Healing Throughout the Ages
with Kenneth Hamilton, M.D. of HOPE Center, Maine, USA
View recording >
Dr. Hamilton will share his 40+ years of study of the healing power of attitudes, going back to the Bhagavad-Gita – some 2000+ years ago. The presentation will be more in the context of a story narrative than a simple listing of facts because Ken incorporated his studies into his actual general surgical practice for the benefit of his patients (and himself). The format includes PowerPoint slides and a 12 – minute video of a H.O.P.E. Attitudinal Healing Group meeting. Ken’s style lends itself easily and comfortably to interaction with the participants in the webinar.
Ken Hamilton, M.D. is a general surgeon who was introduced to the work of Earl Nightingale in 1975. Nightingale stressed the power of attitudes to effect a life of success, which he defined as, “The progressive realization of a worthy ideal.” Hamilton used Nightingale’s work to help his patients get on with their lives in the face of serious illnesses. His studies led him to Jerry Jampolsky’s work in 1986, and he devoted himself to the study and application of Attitudinal Healing – a career that remains central to his own life and the lives of many others.
Change Your Mind, Change Your World
with Diederik Wolsak of Choose Again Society, Costa Rica
View recording >
This webinar will explore the Choose Again Six Step Process and how it enables anyone with willingness to radically transform their negative core beliefs, beliefs that run your life in secret. Once these beliefs have been identified, it is a simple process of self forgiveness that allows anyone to see a New World, a world of love and infinite beauty, a world of Grace. Please feel free to bring real issues to be looked at and ask as many questions as you need to, as this webinar is designed to be interactive.
Diederik Wolsak was born in 1942 in a tiny village south of what now is known as Jakarta, Indonesia. The first three and a half years of his life were spent in Japanese POW camps and it was here that he formed most of his core beliefs, beliefs which he thought were his actual “character.” After some fifty years of self-loathing, alcohol and drug abuse he decided there had to be a better way, it was time to “change his mind” at the deepest levels. Through A Course in Miracles and Attitudinal Healing, Diederik developed a radical forgiveness process which allowed him to transform the self he hated into a Self whose only function is to extend love. Choose Again, his charitable society, operates a healing center in Costa Rica and they teach workshops in many places around the world.
