Discovering Wellness … Cultivating your truth

Discovering Wellness … Cultivating your truth

By By Kimberly Kaye Castaneda, ND, DD, CHt, RMT,

Over the past several months I have had a multitude of phone calls, inquiries and questions concerning the “Cultivating Your Truth” course/workshop. It has been mentioned briefly at the closure of my columns. How can your course help me? What can I expect from the course? Is it a group course, or can I take it alone? Just what is a Truth and Wellness Facilitator? What are the fees for the course or workshop?

My objective for the “Cultivating Your Truth™” Course/Workshop /Seminar is for anyone who may be searching for their authentic self. Those who may need guidance in getting to the core of their beliefs, issues and emotional, spiritual or physical wounds. I feel that one must find out what the limited and false beliefs are that they carry within themselves, where they derived from exactly, when or perhaps who placed them there, and why you continue to punish yourselves with them. I will then guide you in reaching inward to find YOUR authentic truths so that you can manifest those truths in your life.

When you are willing to go into the dark trenches of your lives no matter how much the wounds may hurt, you can then bring forth from them, the AWESOME LIGHT that was shining within you the entire time, finding that your LIGHT was only overshadowed with uncertainty rather than completely extinguished, as you may have initially thought.

I believe, that through the process of “Cultivating Your Truth”, you must discover YOUR own personal beliefs, not the beliefs that you took on from others, so that you could make loved ones and society approve of you, BUT… you also have to realize that your true beliefs can and will only be those that are in your best interest and highest good for your Soul-Self.

This course/workshop will benefit and strengthen everyone it touches with a renewed sense of values, dignity, integrity, compassion, honesty, loyalty, courage, goals, dreams, and aspirations. From congregations, to those in leadership roles such as educators, those who desire character building for themselves, employees, students or clientele, corporate executives and management, healthcare professionals and staff members or other groups and organizations.

In addition to my background as a Board Certified Naturopath, Hypnotherapist, Minister, counselor and health and wellness educator, I am also a Truth and Wellness Facilitator…Just what is a TRUTH And WELLNESS FACILITATOR?
