All of the vendors were located within the symposium room so that the symposium guests could get to them easily as well as so the vendors could take advantage of listening to the speakers. The testimonials from the vendors were wonderful. Many of them carried on dialogs with the speakers after.

The day ran so smoothly, it was so organized and according to our guests it had such rich content, was so informative, so PROvocative and brought such hope and hopefulness. They were all delighted they attended. They left the day invigorated, renewed and lively primarily because of the exercises between the speeches and the information and hope they gathered.

DVD’s of the A Guided Journey On The Road To The Cure will be available in time for the holidays. Pre-orders are available until November 30, 2017 at the discounted price of $29.95. Prices increase to $49.95 effective December 1, 2017.
