COVER LETTER / INTRODUCTION:
Greetings ~ We are living in times of great change, challenge and
opportunity. I offer my work with the intent of helping bring about the
healing that is so deeply needed on both personal and planetary levels.
Studies by the American Medical Association have shown that stress is a factor in more than 75 percent of all illness and disease today. Can we really just “ RELAX into Healing ”? Is that all it takes ??” more...

Voice of healing comes through
By Karen McCowan
Published: Sunday, January 21, 2007
Nancy Hopps didn't set out to become an expert on coaching others
through cancer treatment. "But everybody has their gifts, and this is
one of mine," she said. "I know how to do this." That know-how was
hard won. Hopps survived her own uterine cancer, diagnosed in 1998. She
helped care for her son's fiancée, who died in 1999 from a recurrence
of childhood kidney cancer. And she supported her then 19-year-old
daughter through surgery, chemotherapy and radiation treatment after
her Hodgkin's lymphoma was diagnosed in February 2005.

NOTE: This is just one possible “flow” of sample
questions. Nancy prefers a more spontaneous free flow style of

strictly as pragmatic stress-management, or expanded to incorporate a more health-related or spiritual orientation (eg – holiday stress, dealing with cancer, how forgiveness heals, etc. ) She's done everything from 2-minute TV news clips to 2-hour solo radio interviews. She "reads" audiences well, and will tailor her presentation to fit your market.
Q: How does one go about " Finding the Peaceful Place Within " when the outer world seems so full of demands, uncertainties and even danger?
A: It's BECAUSE of this outer uncertainty and hectic
pace of life that it becomes even more important to find ways of
