I began studying with Candace Silvers in Jan of 2021, just a month after I underwent a bilateral mastectomy for breast cancer. I had just started back to work in a new location as the hospital system had closed my local ob-gyn practice. And I was newly ordered as a Deacon in the Episcopal Church. In other words, my life had been turned upside down and inside out. Many of you have probably found Candace at a similarly crazy time in your in your lives. The healing work has been wonderful. She helped me with scar tissue in my incisions, so I can again sleep in my stomach. And I can pass on some of that healing gift to my family, friends and patients. But as powerful as the healing is, the lessons I’ve learned in Life Class have gotten me through it all.
