Alternative Healing Meet Up

#sxsw #AltHealing


Sometimes we all hit a wall in our careers, in our startups, or even just in life. It happens to everyone. Increasingly, people who have felt burned out with life have turned to alternative ways to connecting, centering, and healing, like vibrational therapies. For example, many people have heard of "The Secret" which made the Law of Attraction (like attracts like) mainstream. But utilizing this Law is more than just "thinking positively." While the tools and practices vary, the general premise is simple: since everything in the universe is comprised of energy, energy knows no time or space boundaries, and we can harness it to heal ourselves, our pets, and others. While it sounds like science fiction, it’s part science and part millennia-old technique. Through technology and social media, the community of learners and practitioners is growing.
