What a wonderful and busy summer my book, my husband and I had. In June, we attended and presented at the Psychosynthesis Conference in Burlington VT. I always breathe deeply when I present EMRx in Psychosynthesis settings as Psychosynthesis provided me a foundation for the immanent/
transcendent spiritual impulse of Emotional Medicine Rx.

In VT We met old friends who have also written important books: Abby Seixus, Finding the Deep River Within: A Woman’s Guide to Recovering Balance and Meaning in Everyday Life, Dorothy (DiDi) Firman, Engaging Life, Living Well with Chronic Illness. And a new friend, Eina McHugh who has written a profound memoir about her experience with analytic Psychosynthesis, To Call Myself Beloved. All of these books are available on Amazon.

In June and July I presented EMRx to two Grey Matters Brain Injury Support Groups: one at Sharp Hospital and one in Del Mar.  It is always an honor to share Emotional Medicine with people who have survived and thrived through the hugely disorienting challenge of brain injury.  Photos below from Grey Matters Brain Injury Support Group.

Arturo, my book and I also had an illuminating time in Asheville, NC where I gave In-Service workshops for clinical staff at Cooper Riis Healing Community’s Farm and Asheville Campuses. I was so impressed with the dedication, wisdom and compassion of Cooper Riis staff Founder Lisbeth Riis Cooper has gathered. One of the many nurturing elements of Cooper Riis is that the Farm Campus has huge biodynamic gardens filled with vegetables that help feed the residents. In addition, residents help manage and maintain the gardens. The food was incredible. Please check out the Cooper Riis website to see what purpose oriented community based natural healing for mental illness looks like. We also had the great pleasure of staying offsite at Elizabeth Riis and Don Cooper’s home overlooking the gorgeous mountains of Asheville.

I had the great pleasure of presenting EMRx at Malaprops Bookstore also in Asheville. Malaprops is a gem of enlightenment. It was fun meeting such a lively, literate and bodymindfully sophisticated audience. Their program director, Caroline Cristopolus was a joy to work with.
