The Healing Power of Surrender with Christine Powers

Listen to “The Healing Power of Surrender with Christine Powers” on Spreaker.

“It brought me home to myself” was one of many insights this week’s guest shared with me, your host Sharon Sayler, during my chat with Christine Powers, founder of The Philosophers Camp and Spiritual Consigliere to thought leaders worldwide.

Together we share our experiences on the healing power of surrender and the other insights and ‘ahas’ she received after her odyssey of first finding the correct diagnosis and then her long, ongoing healing journey.

In the fall of 2020, she got very sick. It took six months, two biopsies, three hospital stays, multiple MRIs and CT scans, bloodwork every week, eight specialists, and three months in pajamas staring at the mountains to finally receive from an outside specialist the diagnosis of long-term Lyme disease and Tularemia.*

Christine shares with us what she has discovered along the way, including that going back to the ‘old way’ she used to move through the world was no longer the way for her plus
• How you must be your own advocate, see through gaslighting, and not give up
• Ways to empower yourself through the ‘brutal truth,’ humility and self-compassion
• The miracle of surrendering to what is without resistance, why surrender is not quitting or rolling over, and so much more…
