A Healing Story: Diane Celebrates a Walking Comeback

New HWF Board member, Diane Ramftl, is celebrating her ability to walk again without a fear of falling.
During the three years following a serious accident, Diane felt fear when she tried to walk. She wasn ‘t sure if she would ever feel comfortable again just walking down the street – something we all take for granted – and she had been an avid walker. Those were tough years, but Diane credits her big turnaround with having the courage to try something new. Her recovery progressed rapidly when she tried the slow, elegant, and easy to learn movements of Tai Chi Easy™. After a few classes, her balance began to improve and she felt more confident just walking down the street. She dove in and continued to learn more about these ancient, mind-body-spirit practices. Compelled to share what she had learned with others, Diane is now a certified practice leader in the Atlantic City area. Diane credits these gentle practices with her recovery and is now celebrating her comeback in a big way.
Diane is Celebrating with a 10K!
Joining thousands of other people to celebrate the simple vitality of walking and running and being in good health, this October 21-22 on the world famous Atlantic City Boardwalk, Diane celebrates her healing triumph by leading Team Healer Within at the 2017 Atlantic City Marathon, half marathon, 5k and 10k run/walk races.
Ever wanted to do a 5K or 10K? You can walk it or run it with us! Here is how to do it this October 2017 in Atlantic City:
First, register to run or walk one of the race events at www.ACRaceSeries.com. Then join Team Healer Within and you’re all set! Joining the team means you run or walk with us.
Not able to join the race? You can still be a member of Team Healer Within and support the team. Team Healer Within will be raising money to train others to practice Tai Chi Easy™ to awaken their healing powers within.
It’s a celebration of wholeness, health and vitality!

HWF Board At Work

The HWF Board of Directors and leadership team met July 5-6 to address and revise the strategic plan of the organization and update governing documents.
Six new board members were also welcomed in July. A roster of the current HWF leadership team can be found HERE.
The Board was graciously hosted at the Katonah, New York home of Emeritus Board member, Daniel Weicher. A big thank you to Dan and his dogs, Bingo and Sparky (shown above), for their amazing hospitality!
In addition to Board business, a casual “friend-raiser” event was held on July 5 for local HWF and IIQTC graduates and for those interested in pursuing future training.
