The Radical Remission online course will be available on March 18! Because Healing Journeys had a part in creating it, Dr. Turner is making it available to us at a special price until April 1st.
I’ll tell you more about that, but first I want to share the story of how it evolved.
In case you are new to the Radical Remission concept, here’s a brief summary. “A Radical Remission is a cancer remission that occurs either without conventional medical treatment, after conventional treatment has failed to work, or when conventional and complementary methods are used in conjunction to overcome a dire prognosis.”
As part of her research for her PhD from the University of California at Berkeley, Kelly Turner, PhD, spent a year traveling to 10 different countries to interview Radical Remission survivors and alternative healers about their techniques for healing cancer. Her book, Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds, summarizes her research on this topic and interweaves fascinating healing stories with the latest scientific research.
Although the people she interviewed talked about many factors, she identified nine healing factors mentioned by ALL of them. It’s fascinating to me that of the 9 factors, only two of them are physical: Radically changing your diet, and Using herbs and supplements. Those are the easy ones. The other seven are: Taking control of your health; Following your intuition; Releasing suppressed emotions; Increasing positive emotions; Embracing social support; Deepening your spiritual connection; and Having strong reasons for living.
In July 2015, Healing Journeys sponsored a live Radical Remission workshop with Dr. Turner. When we planned the event, she told me it would be one of her last workshops. She wanted to devote her time to other projects, including motherhood (she now has a toddler and a new baby born in February), a script for a feature length movie, a docuseries, and the Radical Remission Project.
Even though she would no longer be teaching workshops frequently, we both knew, for anyone touched by cancer, the information and the experience of applying the 9 healing factors to their own lives would be beneficial. Kelly created a plan to extend the benefits to an unlimited number of people in the future.
The workshop consisted of lectures on each of the 9 healing factors, and worksheets the participants used to apply the concepts to their own lives. The first step in Kelly’s plan was to film all of her lectures at the workshop in July. Since then she has edited that footage, refined the worksheets based on feedback from our workshop participants, and created an online class being released this month.
The workshop helped me identify which of these factors needed to be addressed in my own life, and gave me some direction in moving forward. I think it would be a useful process for anyone, even those without a diagnosis, but is especially useful for those of us living with cancer and wanting to thrive.
On March 9th, Dr. Turner did a free Q & A call about the course. It’s a helpful introduction to what you can expect if you sign up for the course. To receive a copy of that recording, or to sign up for the course and get the special Healing Journeys discount, click here.
Registration will open March 18th, but you can get on the “waitlist” today. Because of Kelly’s Introductory price, and the Healing Journeys additional 10% discount (not shown on the posted Introductory price), your savings before April 2nd is significant. Both discounts end April 1st. I hope you can take advantage of this great opportunity.
