has been a wet, lush spring in the eastern US and gardens
are flourishing. And a perfect time to bring together
our growing community to envision and fertilize the
future of The Healing Bridge.
2004 our non-profit committed to a strategic planning
process. Our trustee board commissioned a planning committee
to design a step by step plan for refining our vision
and mission and shaping our purpose. In April we marked
our third anniversary for being on-line by re-drafting
our mission and vision:
To transform awareness of the meaning and significance
of authentic healing.
Be a global forum to inspire, educate, connect and support
those seeking community and credible resources in all
aspects of healing.
June 12th a dynamic group of healing practitioners,
interviewees, trustees, volunteers, community members
and supporters gathered. We started our day by sharing
our individual stories of healing and reviewing the
history of The Healing Bridge from 1998 to today. Throughout
many challenging seasons, we noted the strengthening
of the project's core values: Authenticity, Empathy,
Wise Discernment, Courage, Respect, Principled Intention,
Love and Global Community. In the afternoon a variety
of groups molded our shared experiences and learning
to craft priorities for carrying forth our mission.

and the people who brought together their wisdom to
build bridges between medicine, spirituality, psychology,
science and global systems.
deep appreciation we thank all those who contributed
to an exceptional day and to a new season of growth
for The Healing Bridge Project.
