How to get involved in Healing Awareness Week
Healing Awareness Week takes place this year from 30th April to 6th May.
We're aiming to introduce the concept and benefits of Healing to a wider audience to inform and inspire people in our local communities to experience it for themselves.
Our focus this year is to let people know how Healing and self-help can contribute to wellness and help change life in a positive way.
What can you do to support Healing Awareness Week?
If you're a healer you could....
- Ask your local radio station for a short spot to talk about Healing Awareness Week
- Tell us about a case study that we can share – you don't have to mention names
- Offer to speak about wellness at a local group meeting or club
- Arrange a visit to a local employer to share some self-help techniques during lunchtime
- Approach your local GP surgery, hospital or care home to demonstrate Healing.
If you're a supporter of Healing you could....
- Share Healing Awareness posts via social media
- Distribute posters or leaflets about Healing in your area
- Host a coffee morning to talk about Healing and wellness with like-minded people
- Make The Sam Buxton Sunflower Healing Trust your chosen charity to receive funds from any regular groups or events during Healing Awareness Week
- Share your experiences of Healing with friends or by talking at local groups.
If you have never experienced Healing, but are interested, you could....
- Spend a little time reading through our website and other sources of information on Healing
- Keep an eye on our events page for any events in your area
- Go along to local talks or demonstrations of Healing
- Invite a local healer to come and talk to your group or meeting about what they do
- Ask us about healers in your local area.
This year, any funds raised through Healing Awareness Week activities will go to The Sam Buxton Sunflower Healing Trust, which provides complementary healing therapists to work alongside conventional medicine
Please do get in touch if you have ideas on how you might get involved, so we can help. We have more ideas, resources and toolkits in the pipeline to help you plan and promote whatever you choose to do.
We're very thankful for your support.
