A Note From Jan — by Jan Adrian, MSW

Dear Friends,

There is much talk about the end of the Mayan calendar on December 21st this year, with the focus being on the end. What many people fail to include is that the end of anything is always followed by a new beginning. Healing Journeys is also in transition and I'm feeling excited about our new beginnings.

You will be hearing much more about our workshop with Julie Interrante, focusing on cancer (or any life-altering experience) as a doorway into transformation and new beginnings. Life circumstances that invite us into transformation (like cancer) often seem to come uninvited. As a result it is easy to think something has gone wrong. This workshop is about reframing this invitation as the wisdom of our souls calling us into transformation and authentic living.

In 2013 I look forward to Healing Journeys sponsoring some of the programs that have profoundly affected my own healing journey. What we have scheduled so far are Cancer-Fighting Kitchen workshops, Julie's workshop, and two retreats with Jonathan Ellerby on the Riviera Maya. See our News section for dates.

As you are making your year-end contributions, please remember Healing Journeys. Your donations will help us keep the costs of the workshops affordable and allow us to make some of the talks from our past conferences and Cancer-Fighting Kitchen workshops available on our website, YouTube, and on DVD. They are definitely messages worth spreading.

I wish you joy, peace, and love in this holiday season, and pray that we all embrace the new beginnings coming our way. I expect 2013 to be an exciting and transformative year.

In the Spirit of Healing,

Healing Story

She now resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, two girls and furry four-legged daughter. Pictured, left to right: Rosaria's sister, first child, and Rosaria.

Beginnings, Endings, Beginnings
by Rosaria Cabrera

     I will be very honest, I had a lot of reservations about coming to the Cancer as a Turning Point conference. I was very scared, in fact, and I almost didn't come.

     My sister was diagnosed with brain cancer (GBM) seven years ago. She was living with me and my new husband at the time. I was in school to become a nurse, specializing in oncology. We went through the entire journey together from diagnosis, treatment, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th . . . opinions, more treatments (conventional, complementary, alternative) and surgeries.
