Bootsy and Angel Books Announce Beyond Words Conference

By Ernest Dempsey

 

Bootsy and Angel Books, LLC, April 18, 2010: On September 17, 2010, the All Inclusive Care for Children Coalition is presenting Beyond Words: Redefining Loss through Creative Approaches, an educational conference for families and professionals at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino in Verona, NY.

 

Around 250-300 people are expected to attend this event from across the state of New York, in a variety of human service professions.  The keynote presentation is the national presenter, Carla Blowey.  Additional presentations will highlight areas of complementary and alternative therapies, healthcare professions, cultural and spiritual healing, and other creative approaches for working with individuals and families. 

 

Carla Blowey, the national presenter and former editor of the Living With Loss Magazine, has gained insight, guidance, and wisdom from her dreams for more than 25 years. In 1991, at age 33, she entered the most painful and challenging time of her life when the death of her five-year-old son, Kevin, and the nightmare that predicted it, forced her to re-examine her perceptions about death, grief, and the afterlife. 

 

Subsequently, Carla wrote Dreaming Kevin: The Path to Healing ", an inspiring testimony of the healing power of dreams in reconciling the death of a child. She coordinated and facilitated workshops and support groups for grief facilitators, bereaved parents, and children, using her training with Rainbows and Attitudinal Healing.  Carla is an exceptional and gifted speaker and has presented programs at retreats, workshops and conferences on grief, dreams and healing, writing and publishing a book, and after-death phenomenon.

 

Additional presentations will highlight areas of complementary and alternative therapies, healthcare professions, cultural and spiritual healing, and other creative approaches for working with individuals and families. The cost for the event is $80.00 with a special discount cost of $50.00 for students (enrollment verification will need to be provided with registration).
