Southwestern College

The Annual Transformation and Healing Conference

The Annual Transformation and Healing Conference, presented by the New Earth Institute of SWC, offers low cost CECs to counselors, art therapists and social workers as well as the community at large.  Under the guidance of Vice President, Katherine Ninos, Southwestern College has offered its annual Transformation and Healing Conference since 1981. Every year, amazing and transformational teachers, healers and elders have graced this event (see below) offering training and experience with cutting edge therapies and ancient rituals. As part of our institutional commitment to service in our community, the Transformation and Healing Conference provides a forum for regionally and nationally known practitioners to share their work, and for our community to benefit from such a convocation of wisdom carriers. 

The 2019 Conference will be held August 21-25, 2019. The theme of the conference is Numinous Dimensions of Consciousness and Healing and will feature Keynote Presenter Eben Alexander, M.D., NY Times best-selling author of Proof of Heaven and Living in a Mindful Universe, along with his partner Karen Newell, founder of Sacred Acoustics. Their all day workshop on Saturday, August 24, is entitled Living in a Mindful Universe: Insights into Consciousness. We hope to have the full brochure posted on this site and ready for registration on or about June 1, 2019.
