"We need each other now" - Dr. Edith Eger, Holocaust survivor
Seven years after my dear friend Dr. Edi Eger spoke at the HEALING SUMMIT 2015 in Berlin, her words still reverberate in my soul. Those of you who have been fortunate enough to hear her speak remember the strength and openness of this extraordinary woman who experienced the horrors of the Holocaust in her youth.
Her message is strong and clear: We can raise our hearts to the occasion and still live a joyful life.
Please listen to this powerful excerpt of her speech here.
From Edi I learned that we always have a choice. No matter what situation we may be in, we have the freedom to think the thoughts we wish to think. Edi has managed to not only survive the unimaginable but has chosen to heal herself and find joy. Today, at the age of 94, she still practices as a clinical psychologist in Southern California.
I am always deeply touched and grateful when I hear Edi’s words and feel her zest for life. As a German born, woman who has struggled with the terrible history of my home country, her words have helped me to heal.
At the HEALING SUMMIT in Portugal this year we will come together to enjoy and celebrate our lives, our findings, support one another in our challenges and learn, listen, and love. Guided by extraordinary speakers and healers we will enter a new phase of understanding and as we open our hearts, we feel the peace and joy in that.
Healing is an unstoppable force. Do not miss this extraordinary gathering of great hearts and minds. And we are very happy to announce that Dr. Edi Eger will join us virtually.
