Healing the Body/Mind/Emotions and Soul (Through a Conscious Connection with the Finer Aspects of Energy, Creativity, Frequencies, Shamanism, Ancestors and Spirit)  Ria Swift, presenter

Ria Swift had cancer 3 times healing it the last two times without medical intervention. She found the root cause of her 3 cancers and the creative ways to heal their root cause. Most illness is stress related. We carry the stress from our ancestors, our biological family and our life experiences. Everything is conscious, even disease. By working at the intersection where matter and mind meet we are able to heal much more easily and quickly. Join our talk for an experience and conversation.
