You Can Heal Your Heart After Cancer

Based on David Kessler and Louise Hay’s new work, You Can Heal Your Heart as well as David’s well-loved “Bogey Man in the Closet” workshop, David tackled important issues after a cancer diagnosis than arise for many patients and caregivers. Topics will include grieving the cancer free life and finding a new stronger richer life after cancer. David also discuss reducing fears of recurrence as well as understanding that talking about fear of death does not mean giving up, it means living life fully despite cancer.
