| “Why do people get sick? How can they heal?” These were questions Dr. Nelie Johnson, a practicing family physician in Maple Ridge, near Vancouver B.C., since 1982, began asking herself some 20 years ago, early in her career. Despite the many strengths of Western Medicine, it did not offer enough answers and Dr. Johnson sought for them elsewhere.
Her calling became that of facilitator for healing and her passion that of opening the path to healing for people, moving them from fear and despair toward empowerment as their own healer. Nelie believes that the natural response of the body is toward healthy balance and healing. What gets in the way are fears, unresolved emotional events, buried emotional wounds and associated misperceptions and beliefs. Her mission is to bring people to their own awareness of these blocks to their well-being and support them in letting go the emotional baggage so they may engage the powerful healing life force within.
Dr. Johnson was a presenter at the Spirit Heals Conference in Victoria, BC in May last year and is increasingly sought after speaker.
