Energy Healing Symposium: Many Faces, One Source


Energy healing is rapidly becoming a dramatic new paradigm in the U.S. as self-care gains increasing prominence, and also globally as humanity begins to recognize the key issue underlying our many social ills — lack of spiritual self-identification. As we focus on this pivotal healing process, it is clear that technology can play a vital role in accelerating our energetic/spiritual development, improving our health and vitality and adding meaning to our existence.

The public is invited to explore these ideas at Energy Healing Symposium: “Many Faces, One Source,” from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 18, at Park Plaza Hotel in Bloomington, MN, presented by the Global Institute of Energy Healing Technology. Admission is $99 ($79 for institute members).

“There is no better place than the Twin Cities for a new organization promoting Energy Healing to form,” says founding member Eric J. Christopher, a spiritual hypnotherapist/marriage & family therapist serving the Twin Cities.

“For decades,” he said, “we have been known for innovation, high-minded values and advances in technology. The Global Institute of Energy Healing Technology, a not for profit organization, dedicated to using science and technology to promote the energy healing of humanity through research, education and practice is sponsoring this symposium. Our 50 founding members include local physicians, nurses, psychologists, coaches and healers from varied disciplines.”
