Hello, everyone.

Just a reminder that we’ve now got three free reports available – one has the most current info on how to get a good night’s sleep, another features the latest mind-body methods and resources for managing diabetes, and finally one that addresses procrastination.  Please help yourself and let people you know – friends, family, clients, patients – about their availability if you think they could use them.  

After my rant last week about how hospital care has gone to hell in a handbasket, and how skilled, compassionate, patient-centered nursing has somehow morphed into having to stare at a computer screen 80% of the time, we heard from scores unhappy patients, of course, but mostly from nurses, tearing their hair out over this very issue.  

Many have already left their jobs, out of pure frustration with what the job had become.  No wonder we have a nursing shortage, people!  This is not the job they signed up for.  What a terrible unintended consequence of electronic record keeping!  I wonder how bad it has to get before some shift occurs with this….

A few upcoming events you should know about, if you don’t already:  

Healing Touch International’s 17th annual conference - Wholeness through Service, Expanding our Vision – is Oct 3-6 at the Sheraton Denver West Hotel in Lakewood, Colorado.  The dynamic duo of COL Jill Chambers and Michael Peterson will be presenting there – and it’s always a wonderful meeting.  For more information, click here.

Imagery International’s 5th Annual Conference, The Magic of Imagery, October 4-6 at the Mercy Center in the San Francisco Bay area.  A terrific gathering of guided imagery experts.   For more info, click here.

Fifteenth Annual Canadian Energy Psychology Conference - Science, Spirituality and Empowering the Self – from October 25-27 at the Novotel Toronto Center. For more info, click here.

Save the date for The Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine’s 11th annual Nutrition and Health Conference, which will take place May 5-7, 2013 in Dallas. This is a wonderful learning experience, with sophisticated, rich, cutting edge content. Check out last year’s here.

The Center for Mind-Body Medicine’s next Food as Medicine training will be from June 5-8, 2014 at the Sofitel San Francisco Bay Area – more cutting edge info from expert teachers on what it means to eat well.

Okay, that’s it for now.  Take care and be well.


All best,
