Messages from a father’s life and passing

Inspirational Presentation: Be Who You Are - Messages from a Father’s Life and Passing

  • Feb. 21, 2011 3:00 p.m.

The Centre for Spiritual Living Campbell River will present a return engagement by inspirational speaker and Registered Natural Health Practitioner, Christina Neinaber-Roberts.

This presentation will be held on Sunday as part of the Centre for Spiritual Living’s Sunday Celebration, which begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Willow Point Hall. The subject of this up-coming presentation is “Be Who You Are – Messages from a Father’s Life and Passing”.

When her father passed away Christina had no experience of death or dying. Although she did her best, she later realized that she had made some cardinal mistakes and missed a number of golden opportunities to connect at a deeper level and help make the passing much easier for him – and for her. When her mother’s end was nearing she chose to prepare in advance and their last days together became a time of tremendous transformation, as recounted in her first book Messages of Love – Stories Around a Mother’s Passing.

At the next anniversary of her father’s passing, she wished that she could have been there for him in the same way and in that moment the inspiration came to create a process around “Revisiting a Parent’s Life and Passing” – and her second book spontaneously birthed out of that.

In sharing the story she shines some light on such relationship trouble spots as alcoholism, inappropriate petting, the effects of addiction to sugar and coffee in the body and psyche, and thus on relationships. She also illuminates how to find the gifts of relationship in order to help transform our understanding of it: a process that can be used to bring completion in advance of a person passing. It is equally applicable to any other relationships in our lives.

The two gift books about the messages she was left with by her parents will be on sale for $10, or may be purchased from Christina any other time at $12 each. Ten percent of the sales of the books and related talks and workshops go to the author’s chosen hospice organization in gratitude for their heart-centered work.
