  1. Your blog is most impressive and inspirational, and your training clearly comes through in your posts. Only a small part of my practice is geared towards visualizaiton, and I find it an extremely therapeutic technique. An astonishingly moving story basically put me into the field, and today I felt moved to write about it. If you have and your readers haven’t heard–or reveiwed recently–the story of Garrett Porter, the 9-year-old who healed his inoperable brain tumor via guided imagery, perhaps you’d like to take a look again, when you’ve got the time, at http://wp.me/p22afJ-If. It makes it all make sense! All the best to you in your practice, Candida
