Increasing the Vibration of the World One Person at a Time: For all people of all cultures
This purpose of this fundraiser is to provide scholarship funds for people of color to attend Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) training. People of color are sorely under-represented in our Eden Energy Medicine Community, as well as in other Complementary Health Care fields. (1)
In fact, research has shown that patients prefer physicians who share their same race/ethnicity. They believe that doctor (or health care provider) will understand them better, and respect their culture and how the suggested treatments fit into their beliefs and life. This can lead to health care disparity, in which the client/patient does not receive the care they deserve and need, because there is “no one like me” offering those services. (2)
Among women, those who use Complementary Care the most are non-Hispanic Whites. Those who use it the least are African Americans. I strongly believe that if Eden Energy Medicine was offered by people of color, that more individuals would seek this wonderful care. I have had numerous conversations with men and women of color, who expressed this to me. While there are always exceptions, this is a primary opinion of those I’ve spoken with and those included in research on complimentary health care and those who work in complimentary care and seek services from the same.
I really believe in the slogan “Raising the vibration of the planet, one person at a time.” I also believe these scholarships will help to make that happen.
Unfortunately, we were not able to offer such scholarships last year. So, if you find it in your heart, please help this effort by donating. No amount is too small.
Just so you know, Innersource and Donna and David support this cause, as they hope to spread natural healing (EEM) that works to all people.
Thank you for your contribution.
