HOPE SESSION UPDATE: Natural Healers and Purveyors of Hope and Light

Dear IEN,

What is hope? Where does it come from? Why is it important? How do we sustain it?

I don’t really know, but I have been thinking about it all day today, with the first ever IEHP Hope Sessions. And I can tell you that by the end of the sessions, everyone walked away with it!

  • What is a hope session? I don’t know.
  • What do you do during a hope session? Convey hope?
  • How do you do that? I don’t know. Send out the intention. Invite specifically chosen people. And see what happens.
  • What happened? I can’t explain it. But something significant and special happen.

☼ I am here for you, but what I really want to know is: are you here for yourself?

DEAR KIM,

Hello again! Its been months since i last communicated with you and i hope you still remember me. I also had my Celban Course Bundle subscription last year which had expired early this year. First of all, i want to  say thank you for all the support you have given me despite the fact that i was not able to become an active student that time. My first experience to take the CELBAN early this year still went smooth despite  my tremendous lack of self confidence and time ( as i described to you my condition before). Kim i got 8 for speaking, 10 for listening, 9 for reading…..BUT a very huge BUT only 6 for writing. The result was fine at first because i tried to console my self that i could just try LPN and not go for RN anymore for when i got my result that was the time that CLPN in our province were accepting applicants with some differences in the English assessment results. After 6 months CLPN approved me for CCA  but they still want me to update my English result. That was the time that my heart shattered because first, i tried to settle for less than what i dream to become; second was  that  the next available spot for CELBAN is March 2014 ; third, i din’t know anymore how to approach the writing  and lastly, i will have to be retested again for listening. Its just recently that i managed to forgive myself and forego of the wrong decisions that i made.  From this moment , my experience made me more matured in approaching my goal. I had learned another life lesson  and now i need  to apply it. Kim, with humility, please recommend to me any subscription for the writing and listening with discounts if possible or anything that you think would be able to help me. Thank you very much for reading my letter. S

$ Thinking of coming to Canada as a TFW, or know someone who is?

June 16, 2012 Global News 16:9 did an Encore Presentation entitled Disposable Labour about the true reality of coming to Canada as a Temporary Foreign Worker, or TFW.

It documents the excitement, the recruitment fees, the disappointment and the disillusionment, and the sadness of missing children that are still living back home.

High levels of debt, working illegaly, sexual assault and living in substandard housing were all issues faced by people who came to Canada with hopes and dreams.

♥ I’m not sure about what I want to do in the future

Hello Kim,
I’m from the Europe and I’m one year in Canada, because I have a work permit for one year.( until October 2012 )
In the Europe I’m a Regristred Nurse, but in Canada I have to do a lot of things before I can work in a hospital.
In November Last year I started with English at Global Village, I also passed the FCE exam; First Certificate in English.
On this moment I’m following a preperation course for IELTS, but this is sometimes difficult and mostly not medical related.
I saw on the list from CARNA with the required language that it is also possible to do the CELBAN test
What do you reccommend me to do, the IELTS or the CELBAN
Are there any classes which I can join or do you have more information about it ?
I don’t have a CLB score, but I will try tomorrow to do a on-line assessment.

I hope you have enough information about my

Thank you again

Greetings A
