Seduced into Darkness: Transcending My Psychiatrist’s Sexual Abuse
Solo Performance Piece and Book Signing by SWC Faculty Member Carrie Ishee
Thursday, April 9, 6–8pm, SWC Campus – CANCELLED Until Further Notice
Free Event or $20 for 2 CECs
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a seat.
Through powerful storytelling, music, and art, SWC adjunct faculty member Carrie Ishee shares how she transcended the soul shattering trauma of her therapist’s betrayal that made national news in the 90’s. Images that arose from deep within her psyche led her back to her own truth and inner authority and set her on the path to take her doctor to court, and to eventually become an art therapist. Her book offers hope for victims of abuse and is a case study in ethics for health professionals. Her performance piece will be followed by a brief discussion about ethics, victims’ rights, boundaries, and self care for the therapist, as well as a book signing.
Carrie Ishee, M.A., LPCC, LPAT, ATR-BC, PCC, is an art therapist, clinical counselor and life coach and adjunct faculty member of Southwestern College. She has a local private practice and a national coaching practice working with individuals and couples. Her passion is helping others create lives of beauty and purpose after
soul-shattering traumas, losses, addictions and betrayals.
Self-Care Practices in the New Medicine of Vision
Sam Berne, M.D.
Wednesday, April 22, 2020, 6–8pm, SWC Campus, CANCELLED Until Further Notice
Please RSVP to email@example.com to reserve a seat.
Conventional medicine treats disease with no attention to the body-mind-spirit. However, when we do address imbalance from a whole-being perspective, we can learn to use subtle energies to balance our health on the quantum level, and the potential for healing increases. In this lecture, I will offer my latest teachings on using the eyes as a portal for light to enter the body. The eyes are a direct connection to the mind-body, and the retina is a satellite dish that captures light through its 137 million photoreceptors. The more available we are to take light in, the more we radiate it. This becomes our energetic signature for health, wellness, and self-expression. I will present techniques to help release stress, toxicities, trauma and the effects of digital device use. We will learn to shift our survival consciousness to a thriving consciousness!
Dr. Sam Berne has been in private practice in New Mexico for over 25 years, where he works with patients to improve their vision and overall wellness through holistic methods. He holds a Bachelor of Science from Pennsylvania State University, Doctor of Optometry from Pennsylvania College and did his postdoctoral work at the Gesell Institute in collaboration with Yale University. His protocols take a proactive, rather than reactive, approach to health and wellness. www.drsamberne.com
