25th Annual ISSSEEM Conference: Finding Balance

We live in a world where we are faced daily with a multitude of choices through radio, television, internet, magazines, newspapers, our families, and communities. Our choices tend to reflect our religion, sexual orientation, career, education, health, and life style in general. Each of us is challenged to make choices that help us live better lives despite the constant barrage of outside sources.

“Finding Balance,” the theme of the 2018 ISSSEEM Conference, reminds us that the process of healing requires looking at all aspects of the body, mind, and spiritual components of dis-ease. We will explore a wide variety of healing modalities, from the form of a pill to the power of sound vibrations, and to the power of healing thought practices to even looking at past life influences on the body and mind. Join us as we focus on choices and approaches we can use to find and maintain a balance that both serves us personally and serves the communities to which we belong. Presenters include: Dr. Richaritha Joy Gundlapalli; Teresa Helgeson, CHT, RMT; Janalea Hoffman and Amy Rice; Dr. Eric Nepute; Dr. Patrick Porter; Dr. C. Norman Shealy and Dr. Sergey Sorin; Dr. Thornton Streeter; and Peter Woodbury, MSW.

Registration: Call 888-272-6109 extension 2 or register online at

Dates: September 5-8, 2018

Cost: $400 through July 31; $450 August 1-31; and $500 after August 31. (Pre and post conference workshops and meal plans are available for an additional fee.)

  • Living more fully from the spiritual center
  • Tapping in to collective spirit consciousness through dance
  • Shared spiritual bond with others

The format includes learning the Spiritual Dance Posture, warming up, dancing with music, reading, meditating, writing, and reflecting.

W-Holy You! Rediscovering Your Wholeness. Celebrating Your Sacredness.

Holy (adjective): Having a spiritual and pure quality

You (pronoun): A beautiful soul, yet also fully human

Whole (adjective): Complete

W-holy You: Sacred. Enough. Loved beyond words.

If only the rest of the world could experience the love that will bathe those gathered for this extended weekend with spiritual teacher Suzanne Giesemann. You will learn to connect with the Greater Reality and understand the fullness of who we really are. We will form lasting, loving friendships on the sacred grounds of Unity Village, breaking bread together each day and feeding our souls each moment. We may even ask the same question as our time together concludes: “Can we bask in this joy, this gratitude, this palpable light just a bit longer?” We will return home with higher perspectives and new tools to heal our us. We will depart uplifted and transformed, having rediscovered the wholeness of our true selves. Come and join us!

Presenter: Suzanne Giesemann
