BEING the Healer

with Rev. George Harris

We can all BE our own healers. All of us as children live in our emotional body, meaning we “feel” everything going on around us. We create negative thoughts from those fear emotions, and stuff both of them into our physical body; then we suffer disease and sickness. This treatment/healing center deals with emotional upsets currently labeled as mental disorders by the AMA, including depression, bi-polar disorder, ADHD, PTSD and others. One key is learning to BE the healer.

Rev. George Harris has been on a healing journey since the age of 7 when he realized why he had an ulcer and did self-healing. At age10 he wondered why there were people at a doctor’s office when he knew they could heal themselves. Since then he has learned forms of energy healing, but especially using the gift from God of seeing old thoughts and emotions in people’s bodies and healing them.

Good Night Stars

with Laura M. Grogan, OTR/L

Sleep is a natural state of rest for the mind and body that is essential, yet commonly under achieved. In this hour we will examine some lifestyle choices that can enhance your sleep through circadian rhythm guidance.

Having been a master of sleep for most her life, Laura was struck by how many service men and women were struggling with this simple daily activity. In charge of creating a traumatic brain injury program in an Army clinic, she set out to learn the art of mastering sleep through cognitive behavioral therapy. Her newfound passion for sleep resulted in the creation of a program she called Sleep Gym, that she then later shared with various VA and DoD providers. Based on the program's success, she was invited and sat on the DoD Clinical Recommendations for Sleep Post-Concussion work group. Laura continues to learn about sleep mastery and finds this simple activity to be highly complex and attainable.
