We are living in a world fraught with continuous messages about challenges to our health and well-being; challenges such as climate change, tumultuous leadership and more. The idea that preparation has an energy of expectation or inevitability and, if what we focus on is what comes into our experience, focusing on disasters may not be a good idea. But, we want to be responsible, so how can we be both responsible and create what we desire in our lives? Rev. Joanna Gabriel returns to discuss this apparent dilemma.
Rev. Joanna’s life and work experience include serving as the Director of Education and Worldwide Communications for the ReCreation Foundation, supporting the work of Neale Donald Walsch, author of the Conversations with God books. She is also an ordained new thought minister and, serving in a chaplaincy capacity, has had the opportunity to support patients and families in a hospital setting. She worked for seven years in a Level I Trauma Center and served as an interim spiritual leader, speaker, class facilitator, prayer/meditation leader and workshop/retreat facilitator for New Thought churches throughout the Pacific Northwest. Rev. Gabriel currently serves as the Spiritual Advisor for the Unity church on beautiful Whidbey Island.
