Female Cottonwood Trees

Female Cottonwood TreeWhenever I exhibit at various conferences/events/shows, one of the fun things is to visit the other exhibit tables. I usually do this while the conference attendees are in session.

Recently, I was exhibiting at the Healing Beyond Borders conference and one of the other vendors was American Holistic Nurses Association. On their table, they had little, approximately three inch branches of female cottonwood trees. Only in the female (not the male) cottonwood tree, the center of the branch is a star (see photo).

Isn’t this interesting?! Don’t you love nature?! I sure do! And it is a great example of the Divine Feminine found in nature and speaking to all of us.

Beyond Surgery Program

I recently completed coursework from the “Beyond Surgery Program.” After attending the 18 hours of required training, I am now a Surgery Coach Practitioner.

I am networking to locate three surgery patients that I can coach. Once I have completed this, as well as documenting these experiences, I will be a Certified Surgery Coach through the American Holistic Nurses Association.

The “Beyond Surgery Program” has its roots in the following modalities:

  • Healing Touch
  • Anxiety Release Technique®
  • HeartMath®
  • Breathing exercises and other stress reduction techniques
  • Guided Imagery

And I’m excited about the possibilities of incorporating Harp Therapy and the BioMat as I work with patients who are undergoing surgery (or any medical procedure). I will keep you posted (through this blog) on my progress with this new, heart-felt work…
