22 people attended our 'Meet-Up' at St Erme Community Centre yesterday. Jan Barker founded this event last year and although slightly less people attended this time, it has to be acknowledged, that it was a very special afternoon, enjoyed by all.
The afternoon commenced with introductions and a very relaxing and profound healing/meditation circle.
After refreshments of tea and a huge choice of truly delicious homemade cakes and biscuits we had a wonderful talk from Angie Buxton-King.
She told us about her journey into healing and how she came to found the 'Sam Buxton Sunflower Healing Trust', a very special charity named after Angies son. The charity does such valuable work supporting cancer patients and their families by providing funds to employ complementary healers.
Angie offers healers who are already qualified, further training to provide the practical skills needed when offering healing in a statutory setting, such as a hospital or hospice, (although at present only Reiki is accepted as a practice in a hospice and not spiritual healing, something we hope may change).
For most of us, our experience of healing in a hospital environment may be with a friend or relative who is hospitalised. To offer healing on a ward as a professional healing is quite different, there are many potential pitfalls for a well meaning but maybe not a very experienced healer. This is where Angie can offer you all the tools and contacts you need.
The web site has a wealth of information and advice, and her video clip on the 'Home' page is well worth viewing.
