The Practice of Empathy: Holistically Healing Others in a Compassionate Way

Posted by Jade Marvin on 7/15/21 4:00 PM

To talk about the power of empathy, one must first understand the difference between sympathy and empathy. According to Psychology Today, ‘Sympathy’ is a feeling of care and concern for someone, often someone close, accompanied by a wish to see that person better off or happier. However, sympathy, unlike empathy, does not involve a shared perspective or shared emotions. The power of empathy is the ability to understand another person’s thoughts and feelings, stepping into their shoes, and seeing things from their perspective.

Helping Women Embody Their Truth: Camlyn Stoeberl, Tarot Life Coach

Posted by Jade Marvin on 7/1/21 4:00 PM

Camlyn Stoeberl is a mother, Tarot Reader, Soul Guide, Life Coach, Seer, and a SWIHA great graduate. Camlyn helps support women to dive deeper into themselves and lift the spiritual veil so they can ignite parts of themselves that need healing and embody their truth.

I decided on a whim to sign up for the program. I felt confident that my spirit was guiding my journey and I wasn’t wrong. I would say the defining moment for me was when I realized that I had overcome a major hurdle in my own financial limiting beliefs that had been keeping me poor for my whole life. I began to notice that the less I worried about money the more it was always coming into my life. I knew I was on the right path when I was able to rewrite my stories in much more empowering ways that served me.”

Trust Your Intuition: Your Gut Knows What’s Up

Posted by Jade Marvin on 5/27/21 4:00 PM

When we look for guidance, we often look outside of ourselves for answers or to feel complete. We may feel unworthy or unprepared for answering our own questions, when in reality, the answer was within ourselves all along. Being in tune with oneself is a hard skill to master, yet a necessary one to be able to gain clarity through life’s hardships. When we draw awareness inwards and practice the art of mindfulness, we can then begin to feel supported and at peace. Like any relationship, the one we have with ourselves takes time to nourish and thrive.

Living Large: How Deena Gregory Left Behind a World of Luxury for the Call of the Great Outdoors

Posted by Staff on 2/16/18 11:12 AM

Deena Gregory has always been a “seeker”—a woman with a self-described “natural curiosity about self and spirit” who in quiet moments often found herself gazing upward at the night sky with a deep sense of awe. Yet, after years of looking to institutions—from organized religion to the halls of academia—for the answers that could only be found within, Deena got caught in a spiritual drought, convinced that there was nothing else bigger “out there” than the humdrum of everyday human life.

“With a new reliance on my own thinking came what the Buddha referred to as ‘Dukkha,’ or suffering,” she explains. “I have always been hailed as a ‘critical thinker.’ Now I laugh and say, ‘Yes, as soon as I start thinking, things get critical!’”

Helping Others Create Open Minded Lives

Posted by Kerry Burki on 10/14/16 9:50 AM

A desire to learn healing arts, to refine the skills she already had, and to give her some new ones is exactly what brought Connie Gensamer to Southwest Institute of Healing Arts (SWIHA). Truly, she has always been on the path to healing work, however in early in 2014, she was introduced to a modality called The Reconnection by Eric Pearl. “I read his books and then had the process done. My feet were reconnected to the earth and my crown chakra reconnected to the cosmos as a way of reclaiming who I was and my life purpose. After the process, I really didn’t know if things had shifted, yet three months later, I was looking for a school to teach me how to help people heal, and I found SWIHA.”
